I just had a hilarious experience this morning and I thought I would share
My apartment is...not level. It has a gentle downwards slope from one end to the other. It's not so much that you notice it walking from one side to the other, but it is enough that light things will sometimes fall over for no reason.
I've learned to jibe with it, as I otherwise love the place.
However, this has made for very fun times with my bathroom scale. I try to keep it FIRMLY in one spot and weigh myself there, but it got moved somehow last night or this morning.
In trying to find the "good" spot again (the spot I used before) I was stepping on the scale randomly.
On Tuesday, it told me that I weighed 211.4 (about 3.5 lbs. lost in 8 days! yay!)
This morning, when I stepped on, it said 202.7. I was like WHAT? lol. It would be wonderful to lose 9 pounds in a day, but I'm sure it didn't happen. In tweaking the scale around the bathroom, my weight went anywhere from 221.5 to 202.7, and I couldn't find the "happy" spot again.
My boyfriend suggested that 202.7 be my new "happy" spot, and I was almost inclined to agree, because the number definitely made me grin. I got it back to where it said I weighed 212.0 and just left it at that. Maybe on low-confidence days I'll shift it back to the "low weight" spot
We had a laugh though, for 10 minutes trying to find the happy weight zone. I know my scale might not be completely accurate, but I'd at least like it to be consistent!
Any of you ever have fun with the scale readout? I gotta make sure that thing stays put!
