Well, I don't know if any of you remember a couple of weeks back I had asked for suggestions on which is the best bathroom scale to buy. Well, I finally bought one. Here is the "funny" part:
The day I decided that I was going to take control of my weight, I joined this forum and hopped on the bathroom scale. I told my husband that I thought our scale was crap and that we needed a new one. He more than likely thought that it was simply because I wasn't happy with the 172lb reading that it gave. For three weeks following, I continued diet and to complain about the scale and showed him your suggested replacements.
Perhaps he was motivated by my slow sucess and decided to weigh himself last Sunday. Well, the scale read that he weighed 195lb, a weight that he has not been at since before we got married.
His first words out of his mouth were, "The scale is @!?*ed by 30lb." Hence the new scale!!!
Well, I laughed ... and then got slightly depressed. Originally, I thought that I was 172lb and working well to have gotten down to 162 over this last weekend with only 30 pounds left to lose. Now I know that a month ago, I weighed in at 202lb and I am now 192lb with another 60lb to go.
I'll keep plugging away and I am pretty sure that the old scale didn't lie to me about the 10lb lost as of today. (And if it is, I'm sticking to the "I've lost 10lb story anyways!)
And I'm hoping that I can get my ticker today! Wish me luck.
