Is My Scale Possessed?

Weight: 229.0

On Monday, after a long day of cleaning the old apartment, lugging junk to the trash and moving a selection of grocery bags and open boxes full of last-minute stuff into the new apartment, we went out to a Chinese buffet for dinner. The restaurant had left a nice “Grand Opening” flyer offering 10% off our order on our door that morning.

Erg. Monday morning I weighed 226.5lbs, Tuesday morning and every morning since I’ve weighed 229.0lbs.

Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed the new buffet, tasting sesame balls for the first time and trying out their version of my favorite, coconut shrimp.

But really, three pounds?

Really?

For several days?

What’s up with that?

I’m beginning to think our scale is either broken or possessed by a weight loss sabotage demon.

I can see it now: this demon lives inside digital scales and holds onto an unflattering weight so that the person weighing in will loose heart and falter in their weight loss journey. (Yes, I used to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.)

Well, I’m having none of that. I’m persistent. I am rapidly approaching 210lbs and that’s all there is to it … even if the scale doesn’t believe me! ;-b

A more likely scenario, however, is that there is no demon possessing my scale, I’ve just reached what is called a weight loss plateau. This is where your body does its best to maintain status quo. So, maybe all this moving has caused me to lower my daily calories too much … so my body thinks I’m in some sort of crisis situation.

Therefore, now that things have settled down, I’ll regain my normal routine and the weight will begin being released again.
