Default Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So today's my weekly weigh-in day. Last week I had a great loss, so I was really curious whether I would keep losing this week or if I had leveled off... My husband and I weigh in the mornings before we eat breakfast, so we got up, he got on and weighed, and then I got on the scale and...nothing. The screen was totally blank. The batteries died in between him weighing in and me weighing in!! I should have gone first!

One for every 5 lbs!

I'm sorry, I laughed. It was one of those fluke things, a true WTF moment. But hey, you get an extra day to add on the loss!

Oh, man! I totally understand the anticipation of a weigh-in--I don't even keep a scale here so I weigh in once a week. I wasn't feeling well yesterday morning so I didn't go weigh, and I felt disappointed all day not knowing. Sorry this happened, hopefully you can replace the batteries and weigh first thing tomorrow morning!
New goal: Be a healthy-eating, trim and FIT beast at the gym! 140ish pounds, but the focus is on looking and feeling good--HEALTH!!!

Yes, I chuckled a bit, too. It is funny, and some day you will look back on that moment and laugh yourself.

Anyway, get the new batteries and try again tomorrow morning.

Oh, man. That's terrible (I did laugh a little, though, sorry! =P). Weigh in tomorrow instead! Or, if you can stand the suspense, save the surprise for next weigh-in.

Make him wi tomorrow, too. If the batteries were low, his weight might not have been accurate!
