I'm pretty sure my scales must be broken
. . .and I actually mean that literaly, not just in the "my diet isn't working so it must be the inanimate object's fault" way.
I've had my scale for a year or two now. I've always done a couple of measurements - just to make sure I stepped on evenly and got an accurate measure. When I started this weight loss journey, I was taking 3 each time, and took whatever number was the same twice. Then, a month ago, I started needing to take 4. In the last two days, I've taken 6 or 7 and still not gotten the same number more than twice.
Also, on Sunday, it said that I was up a pound. Now, I totaly believe that - I was NOT good last week. I was down right awful! So I get that pound. But yesterday it said that I gained two pounds in ONE day! That one doesn't work for me - I was decent that day, and two pounds in one day is what happens when you're pregnant, not dieting! (which I GUARUNTEE I am not pregnant!). I even decided to wait a day to check in to see if it would get better. Today, even though I couldn't get the same number to show up twice, they all said I was up three to FIVE pounds. Yeah, soooo not believing that one!
In other words, I don't really have a clue what my weight is, so I don't know what to say here. I guess I'll just leave it with this:
Loss this week: up a pound ish
Total lost: 10-16 pounds!
I can't get a new scale until payday, and even then it might not happen. So I guess I'll just play it by ear for the next few weeks!
