Why cant scales not toy with me.

My scale at home annoys the crap out of me. I usually weigh myself a few times just to make sure i get the same number, becuase sometimes it gives the wrong number....like today. i got on the scale thismorning and it said 144.6, i about peed my pants, i was so happy to finally be under 145, so i went pee and then got back on it again, 146( pre breastfeeding and pumping), WTH WHY DID I GET BACK ON. i could have totally lived in my fantasy world of actually thinking i weiged 144, lol.

then, the scale at my work ( dont ask why there is one, but there is, lol) its one of the older scales that spins ( not digital) and it says i weigh 142....i like this scale, but i just know its not accurate.

sigh.

Aww, hon! That stinks! If I were you I'd TOTALLY take the first weight.

BTW is Mac's ticker wrong? Shouldn't it say 11 months till her 3rd birthday?

That sucks Shannon! I would totally go with the first weight too.

I weigh myself once a day, maximum just for that reason. I wish there were a universal scale that was guaranteed not to fluctuate, I would buy it in a heartbeat. I hate how every scale is different.

Wait until you get AF back. It makes a huge difference with your hormones and I think it makes it easier to lose those last few pounds.

HIDE YOUR SCALE!!! It will drive you batty and it's not a reflection of what you're accomplishing. Plus, it doesn't sound very accurate anyway. Start measuring yourself every morning instead.
