how do you return something that is free?

Week 2 of the scale drama.... Apparently I can gain 2.5lbs in a week by eating Thai food on a Saturday afternoon, eating a few cookies after running 8km and otherwise remaining pretty much on program. ESSSSSSSSSPLAIN THAT ONE TO ME!!!! This scale is freakin crackers. There is no way I am 143.6lbs. NO FREAKIN WAY! Wouldn't I have had to have consumed like 3500 extra calories for each pound gained...looking at what I ate and how much I exercise - IMPOSSIBLE! The other scale is still hovering around 135 because it loves me dearly. I'm really NOT letting this rule me, but it is bugging me. I don't like the number I'm seeing every Monday and I wanted to make it a challenge, even changed my stats to reflect it, but there is NO FREAKIN WAY I'm taking this one. Like meeting members, I'm taking a free pass this week. I had my lifetime weigh-in last week for the month. Sucks to your assmar, mr. scale! Who would have thought that this would turn out to be such a bad idea?!

The pretty ones are always bitches (meaning the scales...)

Sounds like your old scale loves you dearly and does not want to be put away and the new one is just a skank because she is all sleek and shiny...

since when did scales become girls?

so when you step on the old scale it says no gain but the new one says a gain? I agree your new scale is going bonkers! Just don't let it rub off on you!

don't let it bug you and like you said, there's NO way you consumed that many extra calories... if it makes you feel any better - i'm sure i'll see a gain this week too because i had some beer over the weekend and that usually takes a while to come off... :o(

Hmmm....do I dare suggest consulting a 3rd scale...Just for tie breaking purposes and belonging to someone else? But I wouldn't want you to bring in a 3rd anomoly! Then we'd really be questioning our numbers.

Those digital WW scales are GARBAGE!!!!!!! I stopped using mine all together for the sake of my mental health. It was driving me crazy!! I was always a different weight! It was just nuts so I threw it in the closet, where it will stay!
