If you remember a few weeks ago I wrote about losing 24lbs and not knowing how it happened. Well now I do, cause I didn’t! After hurting my foot (which I also wrote about recently) of course the doctor weighed me which for the first time in a long time I wasn’t terrified of. I figured I’d probably gained a little but nothing crazy. I was also excited because this doctors scale was a digital one so I didn’t have to listen to the horrifying plunks of the weight moving higher and higher up the scale. Mind you I was in clothes too and it is winter so I was prepared to also rationalize any additional weight I couldn’t account for.
Unfortunately when I hopped on the scale it said I have lost nothing….you read it right NOTHING since I started Weight Watchers almost 4 months ago. All my dieting, exercising and calorie counting did absolutly nothing. I wanted to faint right there and then run to traffic. I couldn’t believe it. I had been doing everything right and won’t lie I slacked a bunch during the holidays but to make up for not working out I practiced extensive portion and appetite control. I guess it wasn’t enough. When I got home I got both of my crap scales out and weighed myself and one was 30lbs off and the other was 15lbs off. I could see how I was easily tricked into thinking I had lost weight when I hadn’t. I did weigh myself on my wood floor that does have a thin carpet on it but I have gone into the bathroom plenty and weighed myself on the tile with both scales on more than one occasion. These are brand new scales that got pretty decent reviews on Amazon but apparently I can’t figure out how to stand properly on a scale or these 2 machines have it in for me and aren’t interested in helping me keep proper track of my weight loss. I could feel both scales just laughing at me and would probably have pointed if they had arms! I knew I didn’t feel any different and although my clothes were fitting slightly different I knew it wasn’t 20lbs different. I guess that stupid carpet is to blame as well. I am going to throw it out and possibly burn it this weekend for playing such a cruel joke on me. Those scales and carpet must have been in cahoots and are the equivilent of mean girls in my eyes! The scale should have just read “Hahah you didn’t lose shit Fatty Mc Fatterson!! We were just messing with you. Better luck next time jiggles!”
