It's still not I may be arrested for violence against my scale!

I really think I am going to do it. I am going to beat up my scale. Day #4 of it not budging....Yesterday I drank 100oz of water, and ate small and healthy food. I even went to bed with my stomach growling. And still that stupid scale is mocking me. It is so lucky that I can't afford to buy another one!!
So, here is what I am going to do because of that stupid scale, because I REFUSE to let it beat me. Here is my action plan:
1. I WILL NOT weigh myself all weekend. Not once. I will not step on it until Monday. I will not give it the satisfaction.
2. I will continue to drink around 100oz of water every day this weekend
3. I will ignore the halloween candy that will be coming into my house by the pillowcase full by my two girls tomorrow night. I don't want to smell it, see it...I don't even want to acknowledge it.
4. I will exercise 2 times between now and Monday
5. I will try to not eat between meals. And at my meals make wise and healthy choices.
If come Monday morning my stupid scale is still mocking me.....I will attack it. I will take it down. The Montrose newspaper will cover the story of a fat woman in colorado being arrested for physical violence against her scale!


  1. One thing that my doctor has stressed during group meetings (I am still presurgery) is that you have to take in a certain number of calories or you WON'T lose weight. You body will stop burning fat b/c it goes into survival mode. Several people I have talked to have gone through this and said that it is extremely frusterating, but they got through it though I am sure a few scales died along the way :) Good luck and btw 22lbs is great progress!

  2. Oh, I hear you! I think my body has done just that.. shut down due to 'starvation' mode. Frustrating doesn't begin to cover it.
    You sound like you're tackling things head on - which is great. Excellent list of do's and don'ts. Let us know how it went (and maybe we can save your scales life! lol)

  3. Quite the visual! I was thinking exactly the same thing about eating a bit more calories...sometimes it really does the trick. I only weigh myself about once a week, better results that way. But I have a clunky scale and i can't see the numbers real great anyway!
