So I am in the process of losing weight. It's going pretty well, but my digital scale (which is new, I bought it in Jan.) lies! I have to get off and on it several times and it will give a different reading each time. So I get about 6 or 7 readings, and then go with the number that came up the most. Usually, the readings are fairly close, but sometimes it can be two or three pounds difference. (I live in an old house, so realize the floors might not be totally flat - in fact, I know they are not. But I have a level and found the flattest area and that's where I put the scale)
The thing that drives me really batty, though, it when I weigh myself first thing in the morning. I do my business, take pjs off, then get on the scale. The first reading is ALWAYS a pound less than any subsequent reading. And the second reading is like 5 seconds later. There is no earthly way I have gained a pound in 5 seconds. It's just weird, b/c the morning reading always does this. Exactly a pound, every time. Grrr! Could there be a physiological reason for this?
