My scales is no longer talking to me!

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Well, now my scales is not talking to me!! Today was my weigh day and I had lost 3.63 pounds. (The scales was hovering close to a couple lines so I took the heavier line and went for the eighths of a pound). My first instinct was WOO HOO. But then I thought, darn, I am probably having a fluctuation for the good. So then next week I may have a fluctuation for the bad. And the Labor Day Pound A Thon ends next week! I don't want a heavier fluctuation at that critical point!! So I guess the scales heard my complaining thoughts and, though it couldn't turn away from me, I could feel it clamming up, not wanting to talk to me. Then later as I walked past it I swear I heard it mumbling something about "there's just no pleasing that girl!"
I took that eighth of a pound which brought my total to 29.9 pounds lost. Now I could have taken it the other way and reached my 30 pound loss but I didn't want to be pigish about this.
Hopefully, if the scales and I have made up by next Saturday, I will reach that 30 pound loss, my first goal, and be able to reward myself with something.

That is sort of a yey, boo, yay, boo!!

    Well done on your weight loss. emoticon

    Do all scales behave like this sometimes? Or is it contagious? I should have weighed in today, but my scales have broken, I know for sure that my weight is NOT zero!!!!! emoticon

    Talking about scales I put mine away back a few months ago. OH NO went to try on clothes yesterday and yep I cannot fit in the size I did just 6 months ago. I guess when you get tired of weighing everyday it sneeks up and now have to start over on the 30 pounds lost last year. I am 72 years old and have lost and found this same 30 pounds so many times in my life I just get tired of it. No matter keep up the good work. My Silver Sneakers exercise is great and the friends I find there are too. Maybe I will find this page again sometime. Thanks for listening. emoticon

    Yay Yay...good for you. That is amazing. You are doing a great job. Keep up the good work. I hear you about your scale, mine has definately been pouting for awhile. I have ignored it for the last 7 weeks. Poor thing. But I gotta get back in gear. Give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it.
