I Think the Scales are Lying

Monday, August 1, 2011

I have been weighing-in on a Thursday which has been going ok, but after a few days of tears and food, yesterday (Sunday) I decided to weigh myself and WHOA! a 2.6 kilo gain in 3 days, which put me at 102.5 kilos.  That's what the scales said anyway.  I believed the scales because the last couple of days I have been feeling really uncomfortable in my own skin.  As disappointed and upset as I was with myself I decided to wear it, start afresh and use it as my official weigh-in, therefore, changing my weigh-in day.  

I used to weigh-in on a Sunday and for some reason I had more success.  I think one reason is because of the fact that I had to stand on those scales on Sunday morning, it made me very careful with what I ate on Friday and Saturday - the weekend.  What makes the weekend so special anyway?  I know for those that work full time, it's their time to let their hair down and relax a little, but for me, it's just like any other day.

I don't work cause I can't afford to.  I know that sounds really weird, but for me to work I would need at least $990 a week just for child care fees.  Putting 3 kids into child care is not cheap.  Plus my husband works every Saturday so weekends are not that special for me so why do I get that it's the weekend, lets party attitude?  Maybe it's from years of working, but for now it's just a normal day and it's something I have to get used to and weighing in on a Sunday really helps with that.

Yesterday we had tickets to a circus (where I applied my 25% principle with Fairy Floss and Popcorn) and while staring at my limited choice wardrobe, I decided to go with my old faithful pants, the problem with ol' faithful is that they don't fit me if I weigh over 100 kilos, but I decided to put them on anyway expecting to take them off immediately and go with the next size up, but to my delight, they fit.  

"Geez you've bah-looo-nd as of late"
I expected my pants to look something like this, only not as attractive!
My ol' faithful pants are very fussy and right on the cusp of sizes so they are a fairly good indicator to me that the scales were lying - I'll just have to wait until next Sunday to find out for sure.


  1. Scales can be temperamental things!

  2. Weekends are hard! I can keep really focused Monday - Friday and by Sunday I can be up a pound. Sometimes I think I just get tired!

    Keep focused on your plan!

  3. Annnnd this is why I never weigh myself. I just go by how I feel, and how I'm feeling in my clothes. Scales are tricky little minxes! I just don't think the number will ever read what I truly want it to so...who cares about my darn weight anyway?

  4. Those darn scales they can make you or break you. Don't give up you will be back in those double figures before you know it. Thanks again for your kind words I appreciate your support :)
