Darn Scales!!!!

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I have two scales in my home, and only use one of them. The other day, we realized that the two come up with different weights. The one I have been using is off and says I weigh less than I do. We tested the accuracy of the two by weighing dumbells. It's kind of disappointing that I weigh 6lbs more than the scale was reading, but now I will be using an accurate one!!!

    Every scale weighs a bit different....just think about how much you have lost. That number is the same regardless!

    I ran into the same problem when I went from a dial scale to a digital. The digital scale has me a couple pounds more...depressing yes...but you can do this! I'm right along with you in the battle of buldge. The scale will never win:)

    I would be so upset, but just think this can give you some motivation to really lose those 6lbs. You can do it.

    On a side note I would pull a baseball bat on the one that said you weighed less it doesn't deserve to give someone else the disappointment.
