Week 8 So Far...

A bit early to be posting about my eighth week already perhaps, but I realised something after my weigh-in on Monday that has changed the nature of the task this week.

You see, I think my scales were wrong.

I recorded a 5.1 lb loss last week, but 2.4 of that total (nearly half) apparently came from my weigh-in on that Monday morning. I was very happy to take it at the time, as I'm quite greedy for pounds these days, especially at the end of the week when I know I have my round-up looming.

The thing is, I'm starting to think my scales must have been placed on a bumpy tile or something, because the weight went back up right after, and is now coming down from there slowly as if its the most natural thing in the world. I think I probably lost around 3 lbs last week, and now I'm playing catch-up, trying to actually bring my weight down to the number I reported!

Its an interesting way of doing it, actually, almost like having a new mini-target to aim for - only this one was accidental, not intentional! I think I'm getting over my cold at last, so hope to be able to do some more exercise towards the end of the week, but I'm also heading home on Friday for a visit. Here's hoping I manage to catch-up to my Monday weight, and not put any on over the weekend - don't want my first weight-gaining week to be the result of a faulty weigh!


  1. My scale lies to me constantly, so each time I have to weigh-in 3 times moving the scale a little each time because (yes) a bump in the tile or who-knows-what can mess up the accuracy.

  2. I always weigh in a million times!! if it matched like 5 times with no changes, I am happy... if not... I go nuts!! I am sure you wont have a gain, just keep up the great work!! :)

  3. Great work! I love the blog style!
