lol!!!!

So after my vacation... and my maintaining for that week and then a sodium gain and then a DROP back down to ALMOST my previous weight (213.2) I have been sitting at... 213.6 EXACTLY for four mornings?

It's mocking me.

I swear.

I've had that happen before... :)

I'm sure by the weekend you'll be at your before-vacation-weight... or below it.

I also swear my scale mocks me! Just when I think a certain milestone is in reach, it stalls and dances around the number I am waiting to see. ARGH!!

That's happening to me right now with 150. I lost all the temporary thanks giving weight within a few days, and now 150.0 150.0 Day in and day out for like 4 days. It's so psychological for me to get into the 140's, the last time I weight under 150 was when I was 16, 15 years ago, for about a month. C'mon! Give me that frickin' 0.2 pounds already! I literally stamped on the floor and swore when I saw it this morning, I was so pissed

I am in the same boat. I've been sitting at 200 for almost a week. My entrance to Onederland has been delayed. Maybe tomorrow or next week ..

I agree the scale has a mind of it's own. I can say in my head what I want it to be and then bamm it's 1 or 2 pounds above it. :(

I declare that scales have personalities! Mine loves to torture me so I think that yours can mock you. No worries, I am sure that you will teach that scale a thing or two and force it to drop that number!

I literally got off the scale this morning, rolled my eyes and then stomped into my room! lol!!!!

TMI but of course AFTER breakfast and getting dressed I have a huge poo! If I could have BEFORE my weigh in I WOULD HAVE SMASHED that number. Alas... bowels have a mind of their own ;)

I had this happen with 183.5, actually this seems to happen a lot. But then this morning after 2 days of not going to the gym and yesterday totally blowing my calories, I was down 2 lbs. Go figure.
Tonight I am going to the gym to make sure that 183.5 isn't on the scale again tomorrow.

cfmama - I totally understand about the poop. I swear this happens to me every other morning as well. I need to fill up one end to empty the other, and then the scale (and universe) is balanced.

Oy, 200! That would be a really sucky place to stall. :hug: You'll get there, and before the holidays are over, I bet. ;)

You couldn't get me on the scale until after I was done, ummm, well you know. No way, no how.

It's kind of interesting that a few people are replying to you and saying this makes a difference for them too... I have weighed myself, used the restroom, and weighed myself again a bunch of times and EVERY time I weigh the exact same. So strange... so now I just weight myself irregardless and it is what it is.

Oh gosh, I would LOVE to smash my scale to bits sometimes. And I would really, really love it if my digestive system worked to order.

My scale is mocking me too!!!!!! I SO BADLY want into the 220s.

231 is a former "stick weight" for me.

I was surprised when I whooshed right past it to 230. And HERE I SIT.

Ok, it's only been three days, but I want to be FIRMLY in a new decade before Christmas.

Ha, ha, ha.

I've done the pre and post weigh-in and was not impressed with the difference.

Then there are times when I do a pre- and post-poo weigh and think, "Wow!" A few weeks ago, I saw the 180's for several days running. Now I'm right back up into the 190-192 territory. I think I may just try to hang out here through Christmas and then hit it hard after the holidays. NOT that I am planning to binge or go crazy; I just need a little bit of a break, I think.

So, sometimes, I sit in the bathroom for what seems like forever waiting for that extra weight to pass before I step onto the scale. Btw, today i had an outburst as school because i stepped onto the scale (class in a med lab) and weighed myself. The properly balanced medical scale read 272. my scale at home is reading in the 264.- range all week. i was not happy...

You are totally going to kick it's ***. It won't be like 214.0 either, it will just jump to 212 and you'll be like HOLY POOP where did THAT come from?!?

The Diet Gods are fickle.

Oh lord, I know how you feel. For like WEEKS it seemed I just bounced between 196 to 198 and it was driving me INSANE. So disheartening.... It's like "Seriously, how HARD is it to get to 194.9?! It's a freakin ounce!!!"

Finally got there the past few days... :carrot:

Holy cow...you guys and your poop are too funny. My dh does that!

I say we tell our scales...either you shape up or you are going to be shipped out! They aren't the only scale in town. They can be replaced! They need to be told! We have to stick together. We can do this as a team!

This is why I use my Wii fit. It seems more accurate than my old scale. It weighed me a good 15 lbs lighter than the doctor scale and I was always horrified at the doctor's office. I got down to "185" according to that scale, but I'm very nearly into the pants I was wearing then and now I think I weigh 218. I will be into these pants well before Wii Fit thinks I weigh 185.
