Transition Can Be Tough

Well it is Friday of the first week of school. I have almost made it. It has been crazy!! But I have worked out everyday. Which, if you ask any teacher, they will tell you is tough the first week of school. Always so much to do.

Being that it is Friday, it is also weigh-in day. The transition issue for me is that I bought a fancy new scale. I thought my old one (being about 8 years old) was telling me lies. The fancy scale does body fat, BMI, water and muscle. It also weighs to .2 pounds. Today I weighed on both to get a gage of the transition. Turns out, I like the old scale better today.

Old scale weighed me at 195 which would be a 2.5 pound loss (which I need after the month I have had). New scale says 196.4. I am putting new scale weight on my ticker because I have plans to smash the old scale just for fun. But just so you know in my head (and for my ego) I am telling myself I lost 2.5 pounds this week.

I am also getting excited that the new season of Biggest Loser starts in about 2 weeks. September 15th. I saw on their website that Daniel will be on it again. If you watched last season, he was their biggest contestant ever and he was about 19 years old. That ought to be fun to watch. Those folks are so motivating (and entertaining). Just putting it out there for you because I will be setting my tivo for Tuesday nights.

Hope you all had a great week. May you be a biggest loser!!

I think you can count that as a loss. The old scale is the one you've been using, and if it said loss, I think loss too!

I hope you have a great relaxing weekend. I'm not a school teacher, but we do homeschool, and teaching is fun, but intense!

Yay on your loss!!! I just started WW this week with my my weigh in is on Monday. So far so good!

Great job on keeping up with the workouts this week! That takes some dedication!

It's so hard adjust to a new scale - as they never weigh the same. I'd say you definitely had a loss this week, so congrats!

Your two scales is like comparing apples to oranges. You definitely have to go with a loss for the week as the old scale is like comparing an apple to an apple.

I can't wait for the Biggest Loser to start, too. I've been seeing advertisements for it on TV and they feature Daniel. I think his partner on the show is a gal who weighs in with the top weight ever. Should be a great season.

Enjoy your weekend!

ooooo....can't wait for Biggest Loser to start. I haven't seen any commercials or previews so I had no idea Daniel was coming back. Looking forward to it!

I happened to find your site from Fit to the Finish.
I am a K-1 Special Ed teacher, so I know how you feel about the 1st week of school. It's so chaotic!
Congrats on the weight loss. :-)
