Despite the title, this actually involves the scale.
I gained something like 8 1/2 pounds the other day. I mean in one day. That's not really possible, even for me. I fluctuate, but not like that.
Then I realized that the scale was not where it usually was in the bathroom. So I moved it a couple of feet. Down about six. I moved it again. Up a few.
Apparently, the curvature of the floor in my (very old) house matters to the scale. I had no idea. I also am not really sure where the scale is accurate.
I know I haven't lost much (if any) weight in the last year. I'm also beginning to doubt the "eat your BMR and lose weight" concept. But I have also figured out that scale placement matters. It has to be consistent.
I feel a tiny bit as if I'm starting over.
