Scale down!

My scale is playing tricks on me!
My scale and I have been on good terms for the past 78 days. Almost every day, I see some kind of progress, whether it's a pound or more, or even just a few tenths. I have been very fond of my scale for the past 3 months.
But this morning, it pulled a fast one. I got on the scale and it weighed 47 lbs lost, and then when I weighed again immediately after, it said 46.
My scale has a weird electronic memory. If it's unhappy with what you weigh, it will round it off to the closest pound, minus any tenths.
When I first got on this morning, it weighed me accurately. But when I weighed again, it rounded up. Darn!
I think I'm getting a little obsessive about the tenths.


  1. the experts say you are to weigh at the same time and DO NOT I repeat.. DO not weight every day! As you were an EPT addict, you now have become a "SMe" addict! (scale me)It gets so very frustrating.. enough to drive a person to eat!

  2. Experts, schmexperts. I love weighing every day! It makes me happy, and it does not, I repeat, DOES NOT make me want to eat. And although I think I would be bothered with a scale that didn't show my tenths, I'm okay if the tenths bounce around.
    Remember... 3 months ago I was looking at a totally different set of numbers. I am thrilled every time I get on the scale, whether it's a little up, or a lot down. I am content knowing that I am doing the right thing, and am making progress, slowly but surely.
    Thanks for your comments. It's nice to know someone is out there... (and you are definitely OUT THERE!) :-) xoxo
