Heart to Heart with my scale

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Alright, scale. You and me. We need to have a talk.

We have been through a lot together, you and me. Through thick and thin, and thicker yet. You give me the motivation to keep trying to lose weight when I see that number move down. I know that my clothes are fitting better, but all that doesn't matter when


I was so happy when I saw 250 go away, thrilled to see 240 pass, and now we've come to a halt at 230. We've been stuck at 230.4 for a week.

All I want is to see 22.... I will cheer your name, scale. I will jump up and down with joy! Don't you want to see how happy you could make me? I know that this is a give only relationship, but I know that you are going to do it sooner or later, so can't you just do it for sooner rather than later. Pretty please? With low cal cool whip on top?

I've worked so hard these past few weeks, and I made it a point to be below 230 by the end of January. Please, scale, help on this a little and just be 229.8. That's all I'm asking. Not even a full pound.

Okay, that is all for now. Please consider my wishes.

    I know exactly where your coming from. Probably the increase in activity has brought you to a plateau, but do keep in mind that if your losing inches the pounds will fall, so hang in there and it Will Happen.
    I think sometimes our bodies get comfortable with our weight because its use to us carrying this same weight for much of our lives. When we introduce something new it takes time for everything to catch up and our body to let go of what all its trying to hold onto. Does this make sense? It will.
    I personally am basically weighing my success on how the clothes feel as well as how I am feeling physically and that is most important to me than just the number on the scale. But just know that your doing a great job and I know you'll be huggin those scales in no time. When you do, let us know so we can celebrate your good news together!!! Hugs, Debbie

    I can relate! My scale would not budge for months then finally this week I lost a pound! I learned that I have to get enough sleep. Funny, the things that help us to lose weight. And remember don't skip meals either. that was another thing I was doing that was holding me back. You can do it!

    Very funny but yet very true. I have accepted the fact that of all things and even people I can trust my scale to be honest and fair. Maybe you need to do a final work out just before weighing yourself. I do have a question on the comment of drinking a ton of water. How would that make a weight loss. I remember from the big loser that one who had a weight gain admitted to the fact that he drank a large quantity of water.
    So back to your request, just know by Jan31 the scale will show the magic number 229.8. I think you need to be congratulated on your total weight loss.
