7 pounds

7 pounds and no, this is not a review of the Will Smith movie from eons ago.

I have Monday as my weigh in day. I like to only weigh in once a week. I dont think I could handle it mentally if i did it every day. too many factors that make one fluctuate throughout the day. so i log and plan and exercise and then come Monday wait with baited breath as I step on the scale bright and early all excited to see the number drop. However this Monday threw me into a spin. I get on the scale bring and early Monday...not a big thing. The needle didnt move. hmmm I thought . Well OK. so I took that as a victory because I had not gained anything. I was ok with that. I really was! No gain and but I knew I had done what I needed to do. change would come in the future.

So, off to work I go following my 2 mile walk with the dog and eating my oatmeal in the car for my 1 hour commute. I got to the office and thought 'im going to weigh myself here just in case my scale is wacked' yea, still a bit bothered i reckon the number didnt go down. So, i hop on the office digital scale and short of calling a code and shaking my head to clear my vision I stood shocked trying to process that the scale had me 7 pounds more than the scale at home. I thought 'wait, this cant be right'....i hop off and on again. yep. 7 pounds. I hopped on and off once more (just to make sure). yep there it was in bright red digital numerics. I had to sit down to process that in my head. How can 7 pounds have such a profound effect on my psyche. well it did. i pondered that for the rest of the day and into the evening and way past into the next work day.
I cant let this trip me up. Time to let it go...and get rid of that excess. I am not going to let this small bump derail me. Time to rework the mini goals ...I so got this!

    Oh man, I would have stripped right down and tried weighing myself that way!! LOL

    But seriously, dressing, eating, and drinking could easily have added that extra 7 pounds to your weight, not to mention that the scale might not even be in sync with your home one to begin with. Just pick one scale and stick weighing yourself at the same time, dressed or not, so you won't throw yourself with false readings.

    Keep going, next week is another opportunity to see the numbers go down!

    Don't let that scale get to you. You were dressed, had breakfast, drank water and you are going to weigh more than first thing in the morning. Stick to your goals and don't let the little things get between you and success.
