Changed Scales and Was Very Scared!
Wednesday, August 07, 2013
I have been using an older non-digital scale in the 2nd bathroom to weigh myself because I kept forgetting to buy new batteries for my digital scale. I've been pleased with the declining numbers I've been getting when I step on the old scale (I weighed in at 200 lbs on Sunday, down 26 pounds!) but in the back of my mind, I wondered how accurate they really were. Today I made myself buy new batteries, put them in my newer digital scale, and then step on it several times to see what it reads. Of course, this was at the end of the day after eating and drinking and I was still wearing my outdoor shoes so I knew it wouldn't be a very accurate reading but I was just too curious to wait until morning.
First step, the scale read 203. Second step, the scale read 198. The third step, 200.6. The fourth, fifth, and sixth also read 200.6! Woooohoooo!! I am soooo happy that I can now be sure I'm down the 26 pounds! In fact, I may now be in the 100s! I just need to get on the scale first thing in the morning after using the bathroom and before eating and drinking. Hip hip hooray!
