I need to vent. I think all women have a love/hate relationship with the scale. Lately, mine is my enemy. I have gotten so frustrated that I haven’t lost ANY weight in 5 weeks!
I was feeling “skinny” in the morning yesterday to I thought I should go weigh myself. Plus I got the little pop-up from Weight Watchers online that “It’s time to record your weight for this week”…ugh.
I stripped down and set out my digital scale (because even a .2lb loss would bring some satisfaction), I took a deep breath and slowly stepped on. I never look while it is calculating because that usually ends up in an emotional roller coaster while it jumps low to high. After my ususal 5 second count, I look with anticipation wanting this to be the week where my metabolism has finally adjusted and the pounds will just fall off me…NOT! My weight is the same. Even to the tenth of a pound, are you kidding me? So I step off and try again…same. I step off and back on with the other foot first…same. I step off and back on from the side…same. I even step on backwards…same. This is how my brain works, it must be the scale right? Isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over expecting different results? But I’m changing my mount and dismount technique so it should show me something different. No such luck.
