Yes a new scale is likely to show a change in weight. ( would have been nice if it was down tho' eh? ) When this happens we just have to go from that point to record our gains or losses! It is not what the scale number says at this point.....it is the pounds you come down from week to week that tells you that you are losing.
I have been doing terrible these last few months and cannot seem to get a grip! BUT....NOT EVER....GIVING UP! Have a great weekend my friend! 135 days ago
I'd return the scale for being inaccurate and stay with the first one unless it doesn't work at all then I'd google for the best reviews on a scale and buy that one... (but hey that's me...lol)
Personally, the only scale that's accurate, is the one at the doc's office but they'll probably arrest me if I strip down bare butt to weigh myself so I wear the lightest clothes possible and remove my slippers and anything else that's legally allowed. The nurse always laughs at my eccentricities (a pound is a pound right?), but at least she 'get's me.
I use one scale at home to gauge if I'm on the right path (downwards) or if I need to tweak things up a bit... and just in case you're wondering.. my scale is two pounds lighter than the doc's, but that's understandable with the clothes and all. 1749 days ago
Remember always that the number on the scale is just that: a number. It really doesn't matter that this one reads higher than your last.... What is far more important is that over the next few weeks, you see this number start to drop...it is the Trend which is important!! By following your plan, you will know that is going to happen. Be patient with the process, and don't let the "number" define your progress or your feelings. Have confidence in yourself!! 1751 days ago
I feel like my scale lies all the time, lol. I go by how my clothes fit and the scale at the YMCA, there scale is alot more accurate. Keep going, all scales are different or they lie to make us crazy ;) 1751 days ago
