Our Scale is a Jerk

Thoughts for Today
Thanks everyone for the advice on reducing salt, today I don't think was too salty. Hopefully will see some results on the scale soon, because I'm getting really sick of seeing the number day after day. Even worse, the first time I step on the scale, it almost always shows a loss of a pound or two, as if to tease you. But then the next 3-4 times you step on, the number creeps back up to the same old place. That's it for tonight, see y'all tomorrow.

A little over 8000 pedometer steps, walked around Kroger quite a bit.

2 cups of black coffee, got so busy at work I forgot to eat.

Greek food. Chicken pita sandwich stuffed with all the vegetables. Excellent and didn't seem too salty.

Leftover home made chili with 92% lean ground beef. Had a decent sized bowl with 8-10 fat free Saltines.

Fiber One Oats and Chocolate bar. About 8 natural almonds. A girl scout cookie (Samoan). A Skinny Cow French Vanilla Truffle. A Fuji apple.


  1. I know exactly what you are going through, Matt. i think there is a scale conspiracy going on, only mine said i gained a pound! It's time for me to have a long talk with that nasty machine! We can't let them get the better of us! Good luck with yours.

  2. My scale is actually quite truthful, and I hate her for that, lol. :)

  3. scales...suck

    I'm thinking about going back to the old fashioned ones. You know, the kind where you step on it and the thing goes *whooosh* and a couple hundred pounds wiz by? I'm thinking it will be better than my digital.

    But, it told me I lost weight last time. maybe I'll keep it.

  4. Everyone's scales seem to be being buttheads! Why don't you just take the first weigh number if it's the best one?
