Weight Loss Support - The scale said WHAT?? Oh bummer....

I stood on the scale today and it read 143. I just glanced at it, didn't really think about what I saw and got off. I was expecting to be at around 153, so my brain saw the "3" and that was it. Then I realized that I also saw a "4"!!!!

What?? Wait?? Was it possible that I actually saw 149? I new it wasn't 143 because yesterday I was 153 and that would be 10 pounds overnight, so.... What did I just see??

I got very excited because I've been anxious to get to 149 since it's my normal BMI and my next goal. Plus I'm so close. I went to get on the scale again and that's when I saw a hanger on the floor, wedged beneath the scale. It skewed my weight by 10 pounds. Oh bummer!

Well, at least I haven't gained anything in the past few days, even if I haven't lost. But that 143 sure was pretty.

OHHHH... I am so sorry but I know you will get your 143 soon
especially now that you know how pretty that looks!
Good Luck!!!

Wait! Don't kill off the hangers! I'm going to get one under my scale right now :). Good for you for being such a good sport about it. Hopefully this helped you to visualize success.
