I got the bright idea now that things are movin' and groovin' the way they are supposed to that I'd try another weigh in. Now I'm up to 292. My first impulse was, "Of course it is. Why should I expect it to be less than 290?? It's going to take another week to get there, that's just the way things go for me." Pity, party of one.
I ended up dragging Steven to Walmart to buy another scale for the house. He was reluctant. He fears I'm going to weigh myself too often and get frustrated (naw, me?), so we compromised and got a scale that measures body fat in addition to pounds. It was SO nice to buy a scale this time and know I was well under the 330 lb capacity limit.
According to this new scale the weight was 296, but that doesn't concern me much. I promised that I'd let the GNC scale be the weight of record, and I'd go back to doing it once a week. What I mainly want to use this scale for is the body fat measurement because I've been told repeatedly that lack of weight loss OR weight gain can be attributed to muscle mass. So now we'll cut that little variable right outta there. The official percentage of body fat as of today: 49%. Let's all grimace together. <eeeeeek>
