Ok ladies.....which is it?

Ok I went to the doctors just the other day right? and I weighed in at the same 243 (see journal).

Now, YESTERDAY I went in and got weighed again when they drew blood and did the x-ray. THAT scale said 239.

I went to my local grocery store (Publix) where they have a scale you can use....right there in the front of the store....for all too see. THAT one said 239.

So have I or haven't I?????? I know i was not supposed to weigh till tomorrow, but I was being weighed by other persons to whom I had no control over. I still plan on weighing in but WHICH one should I go by?

Arrow Yup...

Only pay attention to the scale you use every week! And, try to weigh youself the same day and the same time once a week... that way you will cut out variations because of time of day, what you ate, etc.. I weigh myself first thing in the morning everyday(after a trip to the bathroom) but record my weight on Monday mornings only. The only variable you can't adjust for is the PMS bloating. That wreaks havoc on me mentally, but I just have to keep telling myself that those few pounds will be gone in a couple of days. Rembmer, we are looking for pounds lost over time... not the variable fluctuations we experience during the day and month.

Ok I will listen to the wisdom of 'the Girls" and fall upon only one dedicated scale! It all makes sence too, but you know sometimes you just aren't sure what you are seeing. And I have been trying so hard to feel like I haven't met with even at least 1/2 lb after a week would have really bummed me out.

Tomorrow is weigh day!!!! And we shall see how things are. I didn't get much exercise in this week, having the TOM and all the pain with it. I just don't feel up to sweating in 'those places' when there is enough moisture already. Let alone lifting and squatting.....Know what I mean?

Hey RubensMuse ... you sound like you suffer a lot more than I do during TOM, but I find that exercise often mitigates the pain. Not sure if it's the "hit your toe with a hammer to cure a headache" syndrome or what. I don't really care to run much, that feels weird. But lifting, walking, pilates, that kind of stuff really seems to help with the cramps.

Hey Rubens... it's weigh day!
Got to cut and paste my goals... excuse me...

Okay, I'm 191 this morning, which means I'm 2 pounds down from last week.

Weight goals:
start weight...193
current... 191
goal... to get into the 180's and NEVER go back!
total goal... 60 pounds. Approximately.

Exercise goals:
current... I go (normally, except I've been sick for 6 weeks and have just started again this week at the Y) to the Y at least 3 times a week. Workouts are a minimum of an hour and include a lot of cardio plus some weights. Plus an hour and a half of yoga.
goal... to keep this up as a minimum. Indefinitely.
total goal... same as above. Plus I'm supposed to do a 60km charity bike thingy in May. If I don't pull myself together, I'm going to have a stroke.

Food goals:
current... I eat until my eyeballs are popping out.
current goal... I MUST write down what I eat.
future goal... eat to live, not live to eat.
