I need y'all talk me down off a ledge, or maybe the observation deck of the CN Tower. Especially you Anne (CarbTripper)!!!.
I did a week of the Dukan Diet - very low carb - in fact, low fat with low carb. I ate all my points every day but didn't use any of my extra points, I didn't exercise much, and I did drink a ton of water every day.
I went to weigh in tonight. The receptionist/weigh in woman says "You gained 3lbs this week, do you know what happenened?" Seriously, I think it took me 10 seconds to find my voice.
I told her it was impossible, she did that sneer, "Well dear, that's what the scale says". Seriously, I was ready to rip the fucking scale off the shelf. I didn't actually look at the display myself. The way it's positioned makes it hard to see at my height, I need to look over a stack of magazines to see it and I can't while I'm standing on it.
I left and called my friend Shelley and after she listened to me recover from my not-so-mini breakdown, I indulged in retail therapy. I needed a hair straightener for my new cut and I found some really cool belts at Talize. Then I picked up dinner - and while sitting in the drive-through line in the pouring fucking rain (did I mention it is STILL raining????), I looked at my weigh in card.
Can you see this? What the receptionist wrote down? Last week I weighed 207.8. She writes this week's weight as 210. Then says I gained 3, and my total loss is 28.2. No way of working that math makes sense...so now I'm wondering if 210 is even right because it makes no sense at all, my own scale says I lost 4 lbs and my doctors scale last night showed a loss of 3 lbs. I know it will all work itself out next week - when I will 1. not go to that receptionist and 2. look at the scale myself.
