Default my scale must be lying lol

I didnt get a chance to weigh myself this morning, so i jumped on the scale when i got home from school. I stripped to my skivvies and hopped on the scale and..137.3. WHAT? I mean, i know its later in the day but ive eaten, and had water and soda, and all those things that usually make the scale go up. I got on the scale like 6 more times after that. I held a couple bottles of shampoo just to make sure my scale wasnt going to give me the same reading every time. Nope, it went up a couple pounds with the shampoo and then back down when i weighed myself without the shampoo.

Last summer i hit 127, which was my lowest weight since the 6th grade. After going on vacation i went back up to 143, and have spent the past year trying to get back. I've hit 138 a couple times this past year, but this is my first 137 since before my summer vacation.
omg i hope its not a hoax! lol

Lol. Your scale would not lie to you unless its time to retire. I did the same thing you did today. I weighed myself after I ate a 6" subway sandwich and 2 20 oz bottles of water and I was 126. The lowest I've been since my first pregnancy. I grabbed two unopened shampoo bottles and weighed myself with it. It went up then back down to 126 without the bottles. I don't know if I should count it as official. If it sticks around for at least 2-3 days then I would call it official. Congrats on your loss.

haha im so glad im not the only one who does this. it just makes me feel like its not just a fluke when i see that the scale does actually change when im holding something that should make it change.

My scale plays tricks on me so the only way I can trick it is for it to think that someone else stepped on and not me. LOL
