Just when I thought the scale and I were becoming friends, I got played once again! In all honesty, I haven’t dedicated myself to any particular eating plan, but I have made improvements in many areas and feel great. However, when I stepped on the scale this morning in the doctor’s office, there was an 8 pound weight gain difference compared to my scale at home. Oddly, I had just weighed myself the day before and was happy with my 172 pound status. But 180 pounds? Seriously?
After the nurse checked my vitals and weight in Exam Room 1, I was asked to step into Room 2 to meet with the doctor. While waiting I decided to step on the scale in there also just to make sure I wasn’t losing my mind. Again, the scale read 180 pounds. WHAT? I wanted to drop to the floor, kicking and screaming. What is going on here? Surely there is a logical explanation. Ok, so I’m wearing jeans, t-shirt, undies, a Fitbit, and moccasins. My gear HAS to weigh 6 pounds, right? When I get home I jump on my digital scale which gives me a different number than our old school manual scale. Four weigh-ins in one day…………….I’M DONE! I’ve worked so hard to get the numbers to fall in the right direction and now I’m just freakin’ confused. From now on, I’m not focusing on weight loss goals, but fitness and nutrition ones. Screw the scale!
My main fitness goal right now is to finish Insanity by my 30th birthday and maldita sea, that’s what I’m going to do.
On a more awesome side of things, my doctor was amazed by my Insanity abs. They’re not quite visible yet, but they’re there. Waiting to meet the world.
