I started out at 207.5 - went to 209.5 - back to 203.5 - and this morning I was 211, then 209.5, then 209 (all within about half an hour). I am getting suspicious of my scales. Last night I was noticing my jeans were looser than I remembered.
Do any of you have bathroom scales that you would recommend to me? I think it's time to invest in new ones. I am very seriously considering not weighing at all at home. I go to the doctor twice a year to get my blood pressure prescription renewed and of course they weigh me. I do think I need to weigh at least once a month so that means new scales. Let me know if you have scales you really trust that are reliable.
As an over-eater I really don't think I can just stop weighing myself. There will be that "drift" that means trouble. I don't even know if checking once a month is realistic. Here is how my brain would work - it would say, "OK, Myra, you don't have to weigh for a WHOLE MONTH so there is room to play." Then about a week or ten days before it's time to weigh it would be, "OK, Myra, you will be weighing soon so it's time to get serious." Then, it would be, "Let's chalk this one up and start over after this weigh-in." Does that sound familiar to anyone?
I am just going to take my last weight this morning as my turn-in weight until I get new scales - 209 - that's 1.5 lbs. gained since beginning, 5.5 lbs. gained since Monday I think. I will have to think about this. I lost 1.5 lbs. since my first weigh-in this morning. ????
