Tales From the Scales - Week #??

Okay, I have TOTALLY lost track of which week we're in. Not that I couldn't go over to the actual Tales From the Scales site, because I could. Like if I just clicked on the link over there in my list. It's really not all that hard.

So it's Week 16. I'm down a pound. That's according to the set of scales with missing number tops - actually I was able to look at the numbers from a slightly different angle and they showed up! Oh, I also found out that if I use the scales on the carpet, I'm down about 30 pounds. Only problem there is that the clothes aren't falling off yet. So back to the scales on a solid floor. While it's nothing astronomical, I think my grand, whopping total for all 16 weeks is about 4 pounds. Now I could be incredibly depressed with such a pathetic loss. I could go drown my sorrows in a box of Little Debbie's Swiss Cake Rolls. Or I could take the high road. The one where the signs read like the old Burma Shave ads:

You could be up
Instead of down

So be happy
Cuz you have less pounds

or

Hinky dinky
Parley voo

Ditch the Dr. Pepper
And the pounds will ditch you

or

Eat some veggies
Drink more water

You'll wear shorts
When it gets hotter


So what do you think? Do I have a future in advertising?

Someone else who plays games with the scale! I find if I stand a little to the left and hold my breath, I'm five pounds lighter. LOL

Look at your weight loss this way...its 4 lbs you're not carrying around anymore. Go get the next 4! When I lost weight, I couldn't focus on the big goals. I broke it down into 5 lb increments.
