A Little Off


We have one of those digital scales that supposedly figures out BMI using just your bare sweaty little feet. Never one to fall prey for infomercially things, I've always been skeptical of our tattle tale scale but it has been pretty accurate through the years. Up until now. You see, there is a five to six pound variant...within our bathroom. Strangely enough, when you push the scale two and a half inches up away from the toilet, it reads a number that is "less" (let's just say less than what I'd like to see a year after eating burritos for 3 consecutive months- would've been nine months but all that vomiting and excessive nausea for the first six really threw my game). When you push it back two inches or more toward the can, it's more. And why the bathroom readings, you ask? Because the scale must be on a flat, hard surface and will not work on carpet. Needless to say, I will be pushing that bad boy away from the toilet (while at the same time stripping away carpeting and adding tile) all the way to the dressing rooms of Ann Taylor if this keeps up. Come on baby, Mommy needs a new pair of mediums.

We have one of those too! I usually weigh myself 3 times each morning. Depending on my mood, I'll either use the average weight or the lowest weight. Like I said, it depends on my mood! Lol!

3 xs each morning? we probably have the same exact scale (we already know we often times have the same exact mood.) :)
