New Scale Frustrations
So I started my eating healthy last Wednesday. I weighed myself on my scale, which I know is super touchy and not very good, but I figured it's better than nothing. It said 247.5. Then the scale bascially broke, it would read me as 233, 240, etc, all within minutes. So since it was a bad scale when I bought it new last summer to try to lose weight, I decided to buy another one. I didn't get to purchase one until yesterday, and I weighed myself this morning to hopefully get an accurate reading.
It said 250.5! AH! I thought that at least that first reading was accurate at 247.5. So either:
1) I weighed 247.5 last week and gained three pounds while eating healthy, staying in my calories, and going for walks. I just don't see how this is realistic, and if it is...AH!
2) I weighed 250.5 last week, and my weight hasn't changed at all during this week of healthiness.
3) I weighed even MORE than 250.5 last week, and so I have lost weight.
I did take measurments of my waist, hips, etc, so I have that to go by from my start date, and I know that the numbers on the scale are not the most important thing, and I'm proud of myself to be trying again to be healthy, but this is so frustrating! I thought I was going to get some encouragment from this new scale, but instead I was super dissapointed (what, encouragment from a scale? What was I thinking?!)
Just needed to vent, and get some support. Anyone else have frustrating scale stories?
