Unhappy A mild disappointment

When I joined this forum/site, I was looking for support for running in a place that isn't full of beginner to advanced runners where 90% of the people are of average size or smaller. But, I also wanted to keep track of fitness levels, etc. so I had planned to find a fitness test quickly and keep track of weight weekly.

On Wednesday, I took my weight and it said 204. I decided I wanted to weigh on Thursdays instead, so I weighted yesterday. This was also because I felt like I was carrying extra weight on Wed (or I would've just used that number). The scale said 197. That's 7 lbs loss in one day (much more than I thought I was carrying). I checked it 3x to make sure. So, today I did it again just because I couldn't believe it said that...and it said 190. WHAT?! That's 14 lbs in 2 days.

So, I dragged out the Wii, which I haven't weighed on almost 4 months and it said I weighted the same as last time (so it would be at the 206 range). Now, I don't know what to think. I don't want to look at my weight to see how good I'm doing (that's my running speed and distance!) but as someone here has noted, "That's the easiest way" to see the differences.

:sigh: I don't want to feel let down by this error of my scale, but I'm kind of bummed! I also don't know how I'm going to measure myself adequately, as we are trying to sell the Wii...
