My scale lied to me this morning


I hate it when it does that to me.  I’ve been really good at getting in my 10,000 steps every day, watching what I’ve been eating and soaking up that 64 ounces of water every day.  I feel waterlogged like a camel.  How did I go up a pound?  Ugh!  Back to the grind.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. Preach. I went to the lake, avoided snacking, walked up and down umpteen steps to the dock twice every day, and didn’t even gorge on Easter candy. My scale hates me.

  2. I fight this too. It’s frustrating. All Nick wanted to do was cuddle on the couch his last few months. He kept losing….I kept gaining. Bike it out and I’ll be riding it tonight!

  3. Scales can be tricky. I wouldn’t worry over a pound fluctuation. We retain water at different times for different reasons. If weight progression continues then adjustments may need to be made. Some people need to add calories if the have lost weight and are exercising more. Some have to cut calories, even for a short time if they plateau. I usually play with about 200-300 calories that I add or subtract as time goes by. Sometimes it’s just an add or subtract of 50 calories. Be careful you are eating enough. People make the mistake sometimes of cutting back too much.
