Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire


Seriously, this thing lies.

I’ve been doing a personal challenge for the second half of March and one of the things I’ve been doing is weighing myself every day.

As I’ve stated before, my weight is really just a number to me.  In this instance I’m using it as a marker for my progress.  

Now, I know that your weight fluctuates throughout the day and I also know that it’s not uncommon to have it go up or down a few pounds over the course of a few days.  Not a huge deal.  I don’t  get stressed about it. 

However, I don’t think it should go down by two pounds within a matter of seconds.

I have a digital scale because I assumed it would be more accurate. 


I hopped on this morning:  157.5

That’s two pounds higher than yesterday..  so for kicks I hopped off and back on again.


huh.. so I got off and hopped on again.


um… oookay.

I tried very hard to position my feet in the same place and to keep my center of gravity squarely in the middle.   The battery is only a month old and the scale is only a year old.

I don’t want to invest in a more expensive scale.. so maybe an analog scale? or maybe I should just ignore the weight and start tracking my measurements?  Measurements are kind of a pain in the butt.. plus that measuring tape?  It’s cold.

If you were me, what would you do?
