Today was a very confusing day. It was the first day back on the scales since my holiday.
The last time I recorded my weight I had got very frustrated as it kept going up. When I left for my holiday I was 16st 11.2lbs / 106.7 kg as the holiday went on I went up to 16st 12.2lbs / 107.1kg.
Today I was very nervous about getting on the scales but when I did I had a shock. It said 16st 5.3lbs/ 104 kg. I thought ‘no way there is something up, I couldn’t possibly have lost 6lbs / 3kg while I was away.’
Today I went to see Jenny. On the way I thought about how my weight has not come off too easy lately and that every pound has been a struggle.
The only way I can describe it is that I am hanging off the side of a bridge holding on as tight as I can, there is only so long that I can hang there. Eventually I will have to fall.
When I saw Jenny I told her that I think something was up with my scales because I didn’t believe that I had lost that much weight while I was away. So I got on her scales.
To my disappointment I was right – my scales were wrong. But it wasn’t all bad because on Jenny’s scales I had still lost over 2lbs.
I thought about this and I may not have dropped off that bridge but I have let go and I am falling.
So I left very happy knowing that I have been away again and still lost weight.
I have since sorted out the scales and they are working properly now so I should have a true weight tomorrow.
