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!!
