I have a digital scale. It's a Conair. It looks exactly like the WW scale, except that it's gold, I believe I bought it at Target, and just like that scale all it does is record your weight. I bought it in gold because it matched by bathroom decor-except there is no room for it there and it's stored on carpet under my microwave cart. In previous blogs, I have related how frustrating it is to use a scale at home for several reasons. For one thing, i don't have a level floor in my apartment. I have opted for a particular space in the kitchen. It seems when I weigh in there it is pretty close to any weight I check-in with when i have a doctor's appointment.
I don't like using a scale in my home at all. When I had lost somewhere between 45-50 lbs I was not using a home scale. I was going by clothing fit and the infrequent doctor's visit. I had a consistent eating pattern and exercise routine. I bought the scale because I joined a maintenance group at SP that encouraged frequent weigh-ins and also because I had joined Weight Watchers (have since left that "program"). I had gained weight back because of a health set back. That was over a year ago now. Various life changes have made my former routine difficult, I thought WW would help me.
It did not. I am trying to change things and shake things up so I can lose weight again. i guess I am rambling on like this because I am disappointed. I apparently have gained a pound! This seems innocuous, but it isn't! I have gained back something like 21 lbs and it seems to be creeping up 1-3 lbs at a time.
I am both not surprised that I've gained weight, even if it's only a pound, and not happy about it either. Oh it's not quite a pound, it's 0.8 of a pound!
