Day 214 - confused scale

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

May need to get another scale...... I usually log my weight daily, after stepping on an off and the scale showing 3 times the same weight. Usually out of 4 times, it shows 3 times the same. The last couple of days I have had to step on and off a dozen times. The scale would show a swing of 2-3 pounds every time I stepped on.

I am not obsessed with weighing, but its a daily routine that keeps me informed. Drives me crazy though when the scale acts up. May need to get a new one, will change the battery first though.

I am not much concerned about my daily weight, but average my weekly weight to see a trend. The last few weeks I have been holding stead, not losing or gaining.

Although I haven’t lost weight the last few weeks, things have been going well. I think of it as “practicing” weight maintenance. I record what I eat, meet my water goal, watch what I eat and try to stick to the program.

A bit of summer stress contributes to a little slack open discipline. My daughter is our of school, yet long work days, so I try to make up on the weekends and may have eaten a bit over my calorie goal on a couple of occasions.

Have to get serious again though, don't want the pendulum to swing the other side and me gaining weight again.

I am still super energized and positive that this is my time, but need to be extra vigilant and get back on track.

Day 214 - 64lbs down - only 136lbs or 386 days to go to 225

I WILL succeed, because I choose to, because I CARE!

C - COMMIT + Plan every day - I choose to see every day as a new opportunity!
A - ACT on my plans consistently - I choose to take the initiative, I own this!
R - RECORD + REVIEW daily - what worked, what didn’t - Celebrate every victory, learn from any challenge!
E - EMBRACE the journey - I choose to own every decision and every choice and will not be derailed by one challenge, by one bad choice!

    I had that happen this past week too. I found junk under it I couldn't see thru it (its see thru). It fixed itself when I changed the battery. I also check it against the local "higi" machine at the pharmacy to be certain I'm getting consistent results. Seems to have fixed itself. Hope yours is just the battery.

    You got this brother! I believe in the beginning the weight comes off easier and the closer you get to the goal weight the harder it is to lose. But not gaining is it a good thing. patience and persistence will get you there. have a great day
