Hey, my scale is working again!

For now, at least...

This seems to be a running issue in my house, heh!

Our TV has a problem with the power switch inside, so it doesn't always turn back on once it's been turned off. We'd given up on it, and then my husband randomly decided to give it a shot one day, and it came on. So, we're not turning it off. We just leave it on the DVD screensaver.

Anyways, my scale was having a similar issue. It stopped working, so I replaced the batteries and it worked for about a week. Then it stopped again and wouldn't work even with me trying a variety of things. So I was going to toss it, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. I thought I'd give it one more try this morning before it hit the garbage, as our swimming plans for the day might be shot by unexpected rain (thus keeping me from weighing in at the gym). And lo, it worked!

So, I weighed in at 215.

I admit, I am kind of disappointed. That's only 2 pounds per week, and I've been at 1000 calories or less per day since starting pureed/mushies.

Yeah, yeah, I know. It's actually pretty darn good, especially considering that my metabolism is still trucking right along in diet mode because I've been doing the low-carb, low-calorie thing for months now. I'm just going to have to be realistic.

This is why I don't like weighing in any more frequently than once a week. I know I get my expectations warped, so I do better when I stay off. ;)

It is SO time to get back to the gym. I had every intention of today being the day, but the rain is thwarting those plans. I could go anyways, but then my kids would completely flip out because I told them we'd go swimming while we were there. Here's hoping it clears up sometime today so we can give it a shot! This is Texas and summer --- there is every possibility that by afternoon it will be like the rain never happened!! heheheh
