My Scale

Since Wednesday my weight has remained unchanged.  Not even up or down a tenth of a pound.  That seems really weird to me.  Again, I was thinking my scale must be broken, so I grabbed a couple of books nearby and got on the scale.  My weight went up by 1.6 pounds.  So, I confirmed that my scale is sensitive enough to recognize that I'm holding a couple of books, one of which needs to go back to the library today.

I just don't know why my body is insisting on holding on to every single ounce of fat right now.  I think early next week I'll have to do something to shake it up a bit. Wake my body up a bit. 

Tonight I'm meeting three of my girlfriends for a little BBQ and birthday cake, which I'm baking today, for one of us, the one of us who is having a birthday, that is.  I couldn't have found a more clumsy way to say that could I?  Well, you know what I'm trying to say, right?  I'm trying to say that I'm afraid my scale will see what I've done tonight in the morning.

Oh well, at least I'll know it cares enough to keep an eye on me.


  1. It's really hard when you make changes and can't see any progress. I hope you can trust that the good things you are doing for your body and soul will have an effect on the scales eventually. I know for me, when I'm happier I lose weight. So, things that make you happy, even if they involve calories, may not be such a bad thing ;) Hope you have fun making the cake, and celebrating with friends!

  2. I did have fun, and I actually ate very sensibly, which I tend to do when I'm eating with other people and enjoying good conversation. It's the eating alone out of boredom that tends to get me. My scale said I weighed a whole pound less this morning than I did yesterday. I don't put too much stock in that because I know it could easily say something else tomorrow. I weigh daily, but I tend to check in at the end of the week to see what the overall results are. You're right, though. Weight is only a small part of the picture, and I am feeling so much better than I was just 2 weeks ago, so I know I'm getting healthier.

    1. That's wonderful, I'm so glad to hear you know you're getting healthier. As for the scale thing, I know I can get down with those little fluctuations, which is why I try not to weigh myself too often. Different approaches, but hopefully the same goal :)
