This revelation isn't going to be popular

I've had the same problem as those above with scales. Well, I think that the scales at my SW meeting lie to me and last week I had proof as the lady in front of me wasn't happy that she hadn't lost enough weight that week and (THIS IS THE TRUTH) she turned the scales round by 90 degrees and they registered the loss she wanted! The consultant's helper didn't bat an eyelid and noted it down. I told several people but they didn't seem to care. If the SW group scales can alter when moved around on a wooden floor then they can't guarantee a consistent reading from week to week.

This incident settled it in my mind to give up going and not fret about whether I lose 0.5 or 1.5 lbs a week as long as over a month I have lost weight (2 stone so far on my scales, more on SW).

I wish I could break the habit of jumping on and off the scales 4 or 4 times a day, I know I shouldn'tand logic tells me I'm not going to lose a stone between 7am and 11am but I just can't seem to stop.

Glad I'm not the only one who does that!:eek:

I know what you mean

Dumpylump, I used to do the same until I proved to myself that by staying in bed for one hour I could lose one pound without going to the loo before weighing myself again. I restrict myself to once a day first thing in the morning as my weight varies depending on what I've eaten or drunk that day. :)

Im the same lumpy, weigh myself numerous times a day and feel bad if i've gained, which of course i am going to do after eatting or drinking etc. I have (only in the past week mind) only getting weighed once a day. I get up, have a wee then get weighed totally starkers and as i don't go to group, i do this on a Friday for my weigh in.

How come the scales at class always round your weight up and never down?

You are so right but it doesn't stop me!
