What the hell? A perfect PP day yesterday, and I’m still up by another half kilo this morning. I’m hoping that Mooday is right and that it’s my scales that are in need of a battery change. Either that, or my body is gearing up for a big Whoosh, because this can’t go on for much longer (surely?)

I tried out J’s scales (like I said to Moonday in the comments, when we moved in together, we suddenly had two of everything!) and they’re saying that I’m way down in the 96’s – indicating that when I do a weigh-in, I’ll be in the 95s in the morning. But the Scales of Woe, even with fresh batteries, are still putting me in the 97s.

We’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to see.


BTW, another perfect PV day today. I was severely tempted by the biscuits at work (as I usually am when the Scales of Woe flip me the bird in the morning) but I resisted. I’m seeing an inverse correlation between my weight and the number of laps I can manage in the 25-in-5 for roller derby – and I want to get those 25 laps in the five minutes!! only 4.75 laps to make up. Which equals about another 5kgs or so to lose… 😉
