Is my scale broken?
Friday, February 07, 2014
I have been weighing myself every day because I am afraid that laying around will have me gaining a horrific amount of weight. Yep, I have worked too hard to screw up now. I have dropped my caloric intake to try to stay under 1200 calories. You don't burn much by reading all day.
So, tonight after dinner, the worst time of course, and in every place I put the scale, it said 236. SHOCK isn't even close to what I felt.
I have not been active except for the leg lifts or using my rollator to get around. On 1/24, I was 244 and even went up to 253 with my tummy troubles that week.
So 236, after dinner, with a heavy cast on that could weigh between 5 to 8 pounds, means I could weigh in the range of 231 to 226.
I am freaking ecstatic! After all this plateau time in the highs #s, like 238 and 247 for the past few months, I am reluctant to even give hope to the fact that I could have lost 15 pounds since Jan 24th.
I am NOT starving myself. I am just being very selective in what I have been eating. Not being able to run back and forth to the fridge without difficulty or spilling something, REALLY makes you choose wisely. Also, I am not sure how long it takes Synthroid to kick in, but the scale said 242 last night.
And if I am way off on the weight of the cast, I will take the 236 as well and run with it! Tonight, after having a realky bad night & in the dumps today, I finally have a reason to smile and be proud of myself.
Goodnight & best wishes to all!
