Is it accurate? A girl can dream!

Monday, August 04, 2008

I am staying at my moms house for a couple days. Kids are loving it, mom & hubby work during the day. Stepdad, Kids & I are home during the day. Kids have VBS in the mornings, then I get to see how the rest goes... Anyway, I am in the poconos, on a different scale and it says 244, I was doing the happy dance and wondered if I got home right now what would that scale say? Could this even be accurate? Yesterday I weighed in at 246.2. I'd love to record the 1.8 pound loss, but I fear when I return home I'll be really disappointed.
@ Mom's (she says her scale is accurate... we'll see, will track here until I return home)
Monday 244
Tuesday 241.5
Wednesday 242

    Hi I missed you guys on Tuesday but your reinforcements were there. Hope you enjoy your time away but I will be glad to see you next Tuesday. Scales scales scales. i always check at home after the doctors just to double check. Its usually pretty close but yeah scales can differ a pound or two so my wish for you is that you come home to find out your mothers scale is 2 lbs over yours. emoticon Hi to Molly and Keith

    I always just use my scale, because they all vary so much for me!

    And don't get disappointed if the scale says 246 at home either...Just because the scale is going slowly I'm sure your measurements are changing big time! :)

    Hope you having fun at your mom's house. Don't worry about the the scale if it doesn't show the loss when you get home. Scales sometimes can be our worst enemy instead of being a friend. Don't be disappointed if the loss isn't there when you get home. Just remember the progress you've made so far has been great!

    I only ever weigh myself on our scale at home. I also don't weigh myself very often. I've been disappointed in the past and given up after not losing enough fast enough. So far I've only weighed myself once, three weeks after I started. I do agree with the other comment. It's the journey that matters. All those little changes will add up in the long run. Good luck!

    OK. Thanks for visiting and get through your head that the freakin number doesn't matter. It's the journey - it's the process - it's the love of healthy foods and moving your body that grows with every small success. (Update: added this: it's the realistic GOAL-setting like you've done, and then accomplishing the goals, or most of them, that matters)

    But yep, I can totally relate. Went to my parents a month and a bit ago. And their old old scale said 180. I so totally was NOT at 180 at the time. I was dying to get home and see. Came home - 184! Tiny disappointment, despite knowing that it was TGTBT.

    Come back and visit soon! Hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend. I want to see where you take this...yahoo for you!
