An interesting side note-- apparently, the LED lights in a scale are constantly refreshing, so quickly that the human eye can't see. The first photo I made showed I weighed 1__.2. I thought "see? it is broken" even though I could clearly see the 154.2 in real life. The second photo showed 54. The photo you see is a composite of those two photos. Like my fuzzy slippers?

It's broken, right?
My hubby, youngest son & I went shopping yesterday. I've been wanting a new bathroom scale for a while now. Our old one with the spinny dial thing was very inaccurate, adding or subtracting 10 or 15 pounds at will. I got the least expensive digital one Wal-Mart had because I'm frugal (fancy word for cheap!). I got home, popped the battery in & oh. my. heck. Surely, we'd gotten a broken one. I almost died! I knew the britches were a little tighter than they used to be but darn! Ok, I'll admit, I've been heaving my fat gut up over the waistband and letting it hang over. I thought that was just the way mid-rise jeans fit! *sigh* I've never been this heavy. In my life. Even during the ninth month of any of my 3 pregnancies. Gimme back my take-the-pounds-away spinny dial scale, please!
