Weight Loss Challenge – Day 168 | Not What I Was Expecting

It was Holy Week and Easter last week and I thought I did great or at least well last week. Turns out my scale did not agree. Here’s what it had to say about my week.

Weight Loss this week: 0 lbs

Total Weight Loss: 43.2 lbs


I had noted that earlier in the week I was weighing in at almost 3 lbs lighter than what my end weight wound up being. I really felt I did well over the weekend too. There could be some things causing this. One of those could be my scale. The scale is acting a little funky. It started out showing nearly a 1 lb loss for the week, but then each subsequent attempt to weigh myself showed the zero loss. The other issue could be simply I’m actually eating more than I thought. Here’s my overall caloric intake for the last 90 days as well as the Calories burned over the last 90 days. I should be clear, I understand that calories in, calories out is not the only factor related to weight loss, but I do see a small trend in the amount of calories I’m consuming in the last month or so. There are more days that go up over 2,000 and even get close to 3,000.



I think the first thing I need to do is replace the battery in my scale to see if that makes the scale operate a little more consistently. Other than that, I’m going to try to establish a little more consistent calorie intake.
