100 lb. Club - Tail between my legs...

View Full Version : Tail between my legs...

I am having a bit of a scale issue. One scale says I weighed 231.2 for a week each time, which i think is statistically impossible, before pushing me up to 241 in a couple days' time, the other scale puts me at about 235, and the balance scale at the gym says I am around 225, give or take a couple pounds(I always have trouble with those ones). Regardless, I have gained back a ton of the weight I previously lost! I got off plan for about a month and a half, fell back into some bad eating habits, and now look at where I am! Starting Monday, I am kicking my butt back into gear. The only reason I am not starting tomorrow is the aforementioned wisdom teeth extraction. Those extra pounds won't know what hit them! :devil:

And I will just forget about the ticker for now until I get back to school and use my other school scale. It's cheap, but it has always given me pretty good results vis-a-vis the scale at the doctor's. Are the scales funky or am I just fluctuating a ton(or not fluctuating, according to the 231.1. EVERY. FREAKING.TIME. scale)? Am I just terrible at reading the balance scales? So on January 11th, I will start my ticker afresh when I only have one scale, so there us no confusion. Bye-bye for now, ticker!

All scales are different, weigh on one scale and stick with that one, that way you are consistent (even if you don't like what it is telling you)

No wonder you're confused!! Sounds like you have a good plan to use only the scale at school. Please don't beat yourself up for having been off plan for awhile. It's what you do from now on that matters!

Good luck with your wisdom teeth.

Welcome back! I love my mechanical dial scale. No batteries to go bad, no slider to move, just a dial that points to the right number :)

My wisdom teeth are doing an excellent job of keeping my calories in check ;). I am just going to stick with my plan of no weighing until I get to school, although for curiosity's sake I want to track the weight I lose while on the soft food diet.

I created a blog to better keep myself accountable to everyone too. I am recommitting myself fully!

Welcome back! I've been off the wagon too, but I'm most definitely back on it now! Good to see you here again :)

Untuck that tail, it will be difficult to work with that in the way. :)

Don't beat yourself up over the weight you have regained. We have all done that in the past so treat it as the learning experience that it was. What matters now is the future.

You can do this!
