True or False?

With my foot being out of commission for nearly 2 weeks now, (improving, but I still have stitches in till Wed.) exercise has been off my list. I have to admit that I've missed my time on the elliptical -- sort of a love/hate relationship, you know? I haven't stepped on the scale since the surgery because I don't put much weight on that foot yet (at least not without my weird clunky shoe thingie) so I"m guessing at my weight based on intake and the way my clothes fit. And now I"m getting nervous and the above is what I'm afraid of. Yikes! (this is why I weigh every day!)

Another reason why I don't own a scale!

I'm feeling the pain from the scale right now. It says that I'm a few pounds heavier than I was a few weeks ago. How dare that scale!

I love that comic, how true it is!! Love the new layout on your blog! I'm so impressed.

Oh, Jan, you're so tiny. You could gain a few lbs and you'll still be tiny! In fact, I wish you would, so the rest of us can feel better about ourselves :o)

jan you are such a lighweight! You could stand to gain a few:) Enjoy having a great excuse to be lazy for a little while longer.

I don't do scales. I know I would be obsessive about it if I owned one, so I won't buy one. If I don't see the number blinking back at me than I can't gain any weight, right? :)
right!

I hope your foot is feeling better!!! Hooray for getting your stitches out--I, too, think you look great!! No worries :)

It is SO true. I have been perfect on my diet steadily losing. One bad day and the scale is up 5 pounds. Must just be water weight right?;)

Amen! I did Weight Watchers for several months and got down to my goal weight. After one month of house and Brea stress i am heading back up the scales. Blech.

Christie said...

UGH - so true. I've been a bit lax since my marathon and I swear I've gained 10 pounds. Hope your foot heals quickly and you're back in the swing of things soon!

Jan. Seriously. You don't need a scale! YOU of all people! Forget about it! I weigh as much as you do in my bra! :-Þ The scale is a big dumb jerk! :) You don't need it.

So true so true. I always find it traumatizing that you can eat chocolates that only weigh a few ounces each, but you can gain 5 lbs from eating them. It makes no sense!
