Pound 5

My scale has been majorly schytzophrenic the past few days. I usually weigh myself 3 times, and take the average, or if one number comes up twice, I take that number... Well, the last time I weighed myself, the first number was super light, I was like "WHAT??? NO WAY! I didn't loose THAT much!" so I had to get a reading that was more believable to me (and the 2nd two readings were higher, as I expected!) Today, my first reading was actually an unexpected surprise, and I wasn't even going to do the 2nd and 3rd readings... but I figured I had to, just to be consistant... and the last 2 readings were WAY LOWER!!! WHAT???

Do digital scales do this when their batteries are low? Or is this kind of fluctuation in readings normal? (I know if I put the balls of my feet in different areas I can get the reading to go heavier or lighter. I don't think I'll ever be able to trust it.)

So, for today's weight, I actually took the higher reading as the truth, and it was still a 5 pound loss!!!
I'll soon be out of the 150's :) WOOT!!!!
Meeting with my nutritionist tomorrow to get some more pointers too! I'm looking forward to it!

Congatulations!! I have yet to see the scale budge below 150. Though I'm usually at the gym when I weigh myself, so Sarge says subtract 3lbs for shoes. If I do that, then I'm usually 149.8. Which I think is pretty ok.

Good job for you!

I have a digital scale and it's alwawys BANG on. Even if I step on it another time- it reads the same. It is also always exactly tuned into my doctors scale- I don't know how that happened. My batteries died about 2 years ago and I have not replaced them :0)
I got my digital scale at Canadian tire.

Word of advice......weigh once a day, at the same time...ie: I weigh after the gym in the morning after a shower. I find it to be very accurate as Jenn said. I know that during the day, we do fluctate (sp). You spaz!!!

Congratulations. I own a digital scale that does the exact thing. I do the same and use the number that registers twice or use the average. Mine hasn't moved in many moons, glad to hear your efforts are working.
