I got on the scale this morning, and was so excited! From last week to this week, I was down 15 pounds! "Are you kidding me?" I thought, as I looked at the scale in utter amazement!. I stepped off, and stepped back on. Now I was down 30 pounds!! What the heck?? Then the realization set in.... Yes, it was kidding me. It didn't take long to figure out that the battery needed to be replaced in my scale. What a bummer! After swapping out a new 9 volt for the old one, I stepped on the scale one final time. The accurate weight loss from last week to this week was a mere one lonely pound. ONE! Thats it?? That stupid scale. Way to build up my hopes then just tear them to pieces! I wanted to throw that darn thing right out the window!
Not to be too discouraged, I remembered that "muscle weighs more than fat", so maybe I had built up a lot of muscle, and thats why it only showed a one pound loss. At least that the story I'm sticking with.
