Awww!

It's still a fab loss though!

I've done similar in the past...weighed in the day before offical..and seen a brilliant loss!
Weighed in the next morning to find I've gained overnight!! Grrrrrrr!

Sooo.....now, no matter how bad the temptation to weigh in early is..I don't!

sh3l5....You weighed three times , yes? I think I'd have weighed a fourth time...just to be sure <{;0)

xox

You've been doing really well.
It sucks that the scale teased you like that, but at the rate you're going you'll be there very soon!

Wow sh315!! Same thing happened to me! Got on, 135.6!!!
I was like WHAT! got on again 135.6 wohooo!

BUT got on again after resetting 138 BUT like you that's still a loss.

Remember: we're in the home stretch, it should be the toughest part

Aaah yes, I HATE when this happens! I always step on and off at least twice just to make sure the scale isn't "teasing" me. It's such a bummer when you step on and you're like "WHOA! I'm 3lbs down!" only to step on again and see that "..., I'm 1 lb up!" LOL just one of the many joys of weight loss. But at least you had a loss, even if it wasn't as big as you initially thought. Any kind of loss is a victory!

I hate weighing myself.. its so depressing. Even when I was at my smallest which was around 145-150 and a very comfortable size 6 I still hated weighing myself. I think its because one of my good friends has 5 kids and is always saying how she weighs 115lbs now and is starting to get love handles.. sick lol.

Haha! That's how I got started double-checking every time, because every once in a while I'll weigh in and think That can't be right! and lo and behold, when I step back on, the number is actually lower! Hehe. But if the scale's acting screwy, I only accept a number if it comes out twice in a row (after letting it reset to zero each time)... That way I can at least be glad that I'm not fudging the number or anything, hehe.
