I will not let this bring me down!!

Last night I said to my husband, I think I am going to have a big lose tomorrow at weight in. My clothes are feeling looser, I ate healthy all week, I did not go out to eat once & I still have my exercise & most of my weekly points left. I was feeling so confidant this morning, looking forward to seeing a number under 200. I step on the scale & the leader is like good job, I got all excited then she says you lost .8 almost a pound. Well that just totally burst my bubble. I know I should be happy it was a lose, but when you do everything right & see such a low number it is upsetting. Especially seeing the week before I went out to eat 3 times & lost 1.6 pounds. I just don't get it. I will not let this get me down however. It will just push me to work harder so next week I have a bigger lose. I just went & weighed in for the Biggest loser competition & that scale said I lost 2 pounds, that is more of what I expected. I don't know why the 2 scales are so different. I wonder if the Weight Watchers scale could be off. The leader does cart it in & out of the office every week, It could make the calibration off. I don't know. I do know I am feeling lighter & better & that is what I should focus on & not the number. (but I just can't help it).

Hey, you're doing FABULOUS. Welcome to the .8 lb club! *high fives*

You're still losing weight and, HELLO, inches.

Good job on all fronts!

What Camevil said, and sometimes the scale takes awhile to catch up to the effort you're putting in. Mine seems to have like a two week delay, seriously.

Great job on your weight loss!

I am waging a war of attrition on my scales. I swear, one day they will actually report the loss I deserve. In the meantime, plateauing or slow loss is still good. You're still doing great. And it may be simple things that cause a variance- time of day, whether you're hydrated, when you last ate, how much sodium you've had, so don't sweat the svales, and enjoy the other achievements!
