The differences in scales
I have two scales at home - one plain ol' ordinary scale and one with the body fat thingy. Both scales were upstairs in the same bathroom. I'd stopped using the body fat one for awhile because I got tired of being in the "HIGH" section all the time.
So, first thing this morning before showering, I stepped on both scales. The body fat one said 210.8 (I didn't check the body fat calculator this time. I already know I'm still in the HIGH range). I came upstairs and checked on the other scale and it was 207! I know there's always a difference between the home scale and a doctors office, but I didn't realize there could be that much of a difference in home scales. Kinda upsetting - ya think?
I will now stick to one scale - the body fat one - even though it shows me as being heavier than the other. It will be the first one I see in the morning, so I'll use it most. Maybe the heavier weight will be more of an inspiration?
I'm not too sure I like this particular discovery, but at least I found it early in my weight loss journey so I know to use only one scale and not both.
