I have been deceived. This morning when I stood on my scale in the morning and I saw that I weighed 209---THAT was deception.---because the night before at 10 PM after getting rid of a bunch of fluid, the scale read 207. I thought when I saw the 209 that the scale reading the night prior was error, and I had actually gained a pound rather than losing three. So just now, tonight at 10 PM again, I weighed, and found that tonight I weighed 205. I weighed myself a number of times and each time the answer was a clear 205. I can only assume that my feeling bloated and swollen with fluid this AM was the culprit in the 209 reading....which makes sense because I had been really good about tracking and proportion/ratios and eating right.

Of course, my mood went from elation to discouraged and angry back to rejoicing with each weigh in. I know it is not good to weigh yourself multiple times in a day--for this very reason. Scale readings vary wildly even within one day. I just wanted to see if I could trust the 207 number and then found I'd lost even more rather than having gained. When I saw the errant number this AM I felt like quitting. I felt that it is an impossible task to lose this weight and I just wanted to eat some ice cream and a candy bar. Thankfully, I do not have anything like ice cream or candy in my house because certainly, I would have consumed them.

So once more, I am on track.
My lowest recent weight (within 6 mos) was 204 a couple of weeks ago. I think that soon I will beat that record.

    Scales can be deceiving. This morning my scale gave me three different readings, so I don't really know which one to believe. Keep up the good work of staying on track.
