My scale weighs me a different amount every time I get on it.
Last week, I jumped on it and it said I was down 5 pounds, which I should have been really excited about, but since I had just watched the Biggest Loser the night before, it seemed like NOTHING for having been working out 2 1/2 weeks, right?
The next day, I don't know why, I got on it again. WOW! Down another 6 pounds! That's 11 pounds for 2 1/2 weeks, so I was really impressed with myself. Until I went to put on my jeans.
My jeans laughed right out loud at that scale. They actually said "5? maybe. . . 11? no freaking way."
But the scale insisted the next day.
Sadly, my second opinion jeans agreed with the first pair.
The scale talks loudly, but it only gets one statement per day - early in the morning.
The jeans have the advantage of being able to get their message across all day long.
The scale then whacked out, and has weighed me 3 pounds lighter or heavier every day since.
The jeans - - pretty consistent. (Though they may give in on one or two more pounds over the last week.)
So pretty much, I have to believe the jeans.
