New scale needed

My scale is completely jacked up. It weighs me in 10-15lb increments of crazy on a daily basis. I finally weighed at work on the nurse's scale and since the last time I weighed there, which was about 5-6 weeks ago.....I weigh 7 lbs less! Now, I've been trying to figure out some rhyme or reason to my scale at home to see if I can add/subtract to get my correct weight but there's no such possibility. I'll weigh again on Thursday since I'll be at work again. Otherwise, I'll be weighing in every two weeks when I'm on campus until I have the money to buy a decent/dependable scale. Seven pounds though, that's 28 sticks of butter melted right on off! Oh and I feel so much better anyway because my scale at home told me I weighed 20lbs more when I started my July 21st way of life change rant than I weighed in at work on Friday. I know I didn't lose 20lbs, so my starting weight wasn't as staggering as I thought. I thought I'd gained a buttload since my last at work weigh in. So, new goal, lose 80 lbs by January 2012. I will do it!

That's great, Manda!!!

You can do it!!!

I have gained 12 lbs so far (and in the last 3 weeks, I have gained 6 of that. Here's to 2 lbs a week! :) My goal is 24 lbs by 24 weeks. If I keep it up at this rate, I'll make it. It is supposed to reduce your risk of preterm labor with multiples.

Take it from a pro.(I must have lost hundreds of pounds over the years!) Don't get caught up in weighing too often. There is nothing wrong with weighing once a week or even once every two weeks. Besides, weighing on the same scale each time will give you a true picture. Keep up the good work!
