My scale "teased" me... it was incredibly mean.



Recommended Posts

So, I was sleeved on 10/22/12... I have been working really really hard, but last time I saw my surgeon (Dec 18) he said I wasn't losing fast enough... My starting weight was 255, and my reward goal is reaching ONEderland...I plan to buy a fitbit. So, I re-doubled my efforts...get in my Protein, eat very low carbs, and excercise on the treadmill for 45 min. EVERY day.

I only weigh on Monday mornings, as not to get too discouraged...last Monday, I was 208.9... this morning I get on the scale (scale is at the same place on the floor, wearing undies only, right after my shower) and the scale said...

197.8. I almost fainted. I stepped off, let the scale reset to 00.0, and stepped on again. (I always do this)... 197.8. I run back to my phone so that I can log in my weigh in Lose It... Then I think - I should take a PICTURE of the scale! I return to the bathroom, ditch the robe, step on the scale and...

208.3. WTF!!?? I let the scale reset to 00.0 again and step gingerly on... 208.3. No matter what I do, it doesn't budge. I am sooooooo bummed... I told my husband, it was like getting a lottery scratch off and having it say you won $100,000... then, have the decimal point move and you actually won $10.00.

I will buy new batteries for my scale this evening... but now I feel as though maybe it is been wrong all along!? I am trying not to make it a big deal...but it really really is.

OMG you had me in stitches laughing so hard!! Okay now I agree it must be shocker how could it do that to you? I actually have a scale called "Thinner" that has a life-time lithium battery in it. Maybe it would be worth to get one with this type of battery to prevent this from happening again. You will get to under 200 pounds! Just hang in there!

I made the mistake of weighing myself on a couple of different scales.....now I don't know which one is my true weight. I wish that I could go every week to the doc's office for weigh in, but it's an hour away.

That's a big difference! Stupid scale!

How old is your scale? It sounds pretty new since it has weights to the tenth of an ounce. Try weighing things that you know the weight of and see if it is accurate. You can also use a level to see if your scale is placed on level flooring.

I noticed on my scale that how I stand can impact my weight. If I lean forward slightly, I am about .2 pounds heavier than if I stand straight. If I lean back slightly, the same thing only lower not heavier.

I'm sorry your scale was mean, but I have to say that I loved your post. You made me laugh because I could totally relate! You will be in Onderland soon!

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
