Stupid Scale!

So I have been sticking within my carb limit (50-100 per day) and my scale wasn't budging, in fact it was going up. I know it's TOM but really I have been doing really good this past week with the carb #'s. So today I finally had enough when I KNOW I was really low on carbs (59 yesterday) and I had a 2oz gain, and I decided to use my hubby's scale, which is a high capacity scale (550#) and I know it's more accurate as it was close to what the Dr's scale told him he weighed last visit. I am down 4# on this scale! So out with my crappy cheapo scale and in with the hubby's expensive one

I knew I was losing as my clothes are getting looser. So I am down 13# now. I am on day 15. I think I am doing pretty good especially since I normally gain 5-10# during TOM, I retain a TON of H20. Anyways just wanted to share. I hate my old scale. Even changed the battery on it and it wasn't budging.

That is great! Good job on staying focused and not letting that lying scale derail you! Before you chuck it, maybe it needs a new battery?

..stop thinking of it as "starting over". It's life, we don't get do-overs. You can only move forward from this point. ~~ pepperanne

I wish this was my problem. I had a really discouraging weigh-in this morning - up 1.4 pounds I've been on plan all week, it's not that TOM and I am well-hydrated, so I can't blame any of the usual suspects. I track my calories, so the rational part of my brain knows that it is not a true fat gain, but it does throw you for a loop when you are expecting a lower number based on your behaviors.

Oh well... on to next week! Not going to let one bad weigh-in keep me down!!!
