Scale Failure

Saturday, September 03, 2011

I stepped on the scale for an updated weight to chart. The scale read 10 pounds heavier. What The Hell? So I got off and tried again. It was even heavier. So I got off and picked the damn thing up and looked. Nothing was under it. Nothing was stuck to it. I tried again. Even Heavier. By now it's just getting funny. Since I know it isn't me, and I'm not in some sorta weird gravity vortex, I'm just play. On... Off... ON... Off... 348 pounds! yep the scale kept going up to 348 before dieing. The good news is that I know now what it looks like, when a lithium battery fails. First, the scale will go dimmer, then it will just keep adding till it quits.
So, for now I am broke. I start training for my new job Sept 12. I won't see a first paycheck till October. I'm betting . I can't become numbers obsessed cause I won't know any numbers...LOL
I just also got a $650 bill that I wasn't expecting, so I'm really broke... Other than the little things, like no money. I'm great.
In other news. I made friends with some people, who like to do boony stomps (jungle romps). They are in their 50s, so I should be able to keep up. They like to enjoy the hike, and not go hard core.

    Time to tune into those NSV's: non-scale victories: how you feel, how you look, how your clothes fit, it's easier to move and of course boonie stomp! emoticon

    Hi! I'm glad you found some folks to get out with!

    And about the scale - maybe there is a sympathetic school or clinic nurse who would let you step on one over the next few weeks?

    Good luck on the new job!
