Good news from a scale, I know, I was surprised too

Thursday, March 11, 2010 at 3:18 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
I was at the doctor's office today, patiently waiting for someone to come when I eyed the scale.  Normally I stay away from scales other than my own at all costs, for fear of being horribly disappointed.   But I felt good today - got up early, exercises, ran a bunch of errands (on foot), made a healthy breakfast and lunch; all before 10 am! - so I took off my shoes (everyone knows those things weigh at least 10 pounds, lol) and stepped on the scale.  To my surprise (and intense enjoyment) the scale steadied at 159.2 pounds.  When I weighed myself on my WiiFit balance board 4 hours earlier, wearing tiny shorts and a very thin shirt (though I told it my clothes weighed 2 pounds), my weight came in at 163.7.  From this I have concluded that the WiiFit scale is off by 4 1/2 pounds; hopefully it is at least consistant so that I can montior changes.  That's logical, isn't it?
