My scale is on the fritz! I don't know what to believe anymore. This morning I woke up and weighed myself, on my new scale 247. My old scale? 255. Last night they said the same thing, but apparently not today. New scale has new batteries, but I noticed that if I step on it and then step off and step back on, it will register almost a pound different. So annoying! Anyone have this problem. It's just so bizarre to me that yesterday the two scales were saying the same thing, and now one is completely different.

Anyway, It's going to be a busy week for me. I have two exams to study for plus still studying for the important test I have to take at the end of my semester to get into the nursing program I am applying for. I'm a little spent for time. Hopefully I can keep my work out schedule, but I am already behind with that. I should be at the gym right now in fact, but I'm not. I'm home taking a break from studying. Hoping to get to the gym after work tonight, but work has been killer this week already. So not sure If I will have the motivation, but hoping I can convince myself that going to the gym will help let off some steam.

Sliverfire Great job with the steps! I've fallen so far behind. Hopefully I can make up some ground!

I always wait to see if a number sticks and finally after a bad cheat day and no losses the past few days a solid 260 flashed on my scale. So close to the 250's I can scream.

Not getting much gym in this week, I've been working doubles from 16 to 18 hours at a time. Nursing is the worst field to be in when you're short handed so badly sometimes... no choice but to stay, people need you! Unfortunatley that means my gym needs arent being met and my sleep pattern is totally wacked.

This coming week should slow work stuff down and I'm super motivated to solidly place my big old butt in the 250s!

Makes me think that maybe the 240's are in my reach!

CongratsSucre! I wish I had measured myself before I started trying to lose weight so I would have something other than the scale to base my progress on.
Kailpea weight flucuations really baffle and confuse me! I can weigh 7 lbs heavier by the end of the day! I'm like, come on, there isn't that much water in the world! And thanks, the scale is a cruel mistress, but the hips don't lie LOL

My car is in the shop this week, so I have a rental. And of course it has to be like the coldest week EVER (-30 felt like -40 this morning) and I MISS MY COMMAND START!!!! Running out to start the car at 6 am was a pretty brutal way to start the day. I have been spoiled by my command start and I am OK with that.

Anyway, I was happy to be right on plan yesterday. Measured every. single. thing. Busted my butt at the gym. Made it through W4D1 of C25K. My ankle is pretty tender today though, so today will be pretty relaxed.

SucreSucre Wowzers!!! You're doing awesome! that is a pretty dang fantastic NSV!!! Screw the scale!!!
!
That's the spirit! Scale me damned Silverfire! Those 18 jeans are all the proof you need!

Keeping on keeping on. Going to my sister-in-law's house this evening to make a healthy dinner and work out with her.

I want to see 256... Screw you, Aunt Flo.

BUT NSV, I'm wearing a pair of jeans today that I haven't felt comfortable in for quite a while, and they fit just right... and my knee high black boots are loose enough to stuff my flared jean legs into.... Just a month ago I could barely stuff my LEGS into them.

So I refuse to get discouraged.

You'll make it CharityMarie!!!

I am noticing a trend in the thread ladies; the scale says one thing, but our NSV's say something different hmm...scale conspiracy? Maybe! I weighed in at 259 this morning and almost had a cow, but then I said "oh well" and packed my healthy lunch and gym clothes and morning smoothie and went about my way. This scale will NOT stop my from my goals!

Good luck ladies, think healthy thoughts!

WTG Charitymarie!!!!!!!!!!! You're so close to being OUT of this thread!

I am stuck at 257.4, BUT I think it is a combination of a few things: I am eating too much salt, not drinking enough water and I've been creeping up on TOM for over a week now, like it won't just come and then go away (sorry! TMI!) and my body is a little sore and soreness for me, equals water retention.

I know the soreness is associated with exercise, I like to push myself, but I maybe need to take an extra day off this week, maybe ice the old legs, we'll see.

Anyway, I AM very excited about my official measurements; I took a look at Forever21's measurements (don't judge me! I love it there! LOL) and I am pretty much officially in their 3X size (which is a 17/18), the measurements are (vs. my measurements):

Bust - 49" vs 48" (ME)
Waist - 42" vs 38" (ME)
Hips - 51" vs 51.5 (ME)

However, I am NOT yet in their size 20 jeans, because of my thighs!!! My thighs have gone down from almost 34" to 31.5" and F21's thigh for their size 20 jeans is 30.75", so I have another .75" to go until I can wear their jeans!

Anyway, the point is, I am not going to let this number throw me off; I have let it do that in the past and it stops NOW. On wards and DOWN wards!

Gosh I know ALLLLL about hips and thighs keeping you out of a size. Pisses me off. BUT I would rather carry my weight in my butt than my belly, so i can't really complain too much. If I have to be 130 pounds over weight, at least I maintain a waist, boobs, and a whole lot of a$$.

Aunt Flo decided to move on, and I think i got my whoosh. 255.0 this morning... but it was my sister in law's scale, not mine, so it might not be accurate. That said, in the past, that scale weighed me heavier than my own, so I decided to take it. Maybe I'll wake up at my own apartment tomorrow and be down even more? One can only hope.

But since I'm accepting my weight at 255, that means I'm fifteen pounds down!!!!!! Whoop whoop!!! 2.5 more pounds before I'm 25% of the way to my summer goal!!!

Happy Friday Peeps!

I had a pretty darn good start to the day with my (new!) scale showing me 253.6! Woo! I was pretty worried that I was going to just break even this month. I would LOVE to hit 50 lbs lost before the wedding I'm going to in two weeks! I'm kinda excited to get all prettied up for the day too.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and has better temperatures than our -57 (with the wind) forecast for tomorrow!

Hi everyone!

I just became a member and am teetering right around 260, so am happy to have found this thread.

You all made me laugh, because I can totally relate to being confounded by daily weight fluctuations and yelling at the scale not because I don't like what it is saying, but because it doesn't make any sense! ("Go home scale, you're drunk," may have actually come out of my mouth the other day.)

Keep up the good work everyone! (And keep those NSVs coming on those days when the scale seems drunk...)
