The Evil Doctor's Scale

Everyone knows about the evil doctor's scale.
The one that makes you seem like a cow, even when you don't feel like you are.
The one that you SWEAR has got to be 10 pounds off.
Yeah, that evil doctor's scale.Well, I had to come face-to-face with that scale yesterday.
I put on my lightest clothes, ate my normal food (bagel, sandwich for lunch, etc.).

Once I got to the scale, I took my shoes off, because we all know shoes add 10 pounds.
I got up on the scale, held my breath, expected the worst.
*scraaaaape* Goes the metal weight. *scraa...* *thud*
That would be my jaw dropping.

110 Pounds.

What. The. Eff.

Yeah, I didn't want to be 130 like I thought I might be. I felt heavier recently. But I mean, 110?
Come on. Even I, the perpetual weight-loser, knows that that is too thin.
Last time I was there, I weighed 119 on their scale. And that was when I was weighing around 115 on the home scale. I do not even want to TOUCH that home scale now.

I've been eating! I had tacos for desert a couple of nights ago. TACOS. I had dinner, and then TACOS.
I had LOADED FRIES and a PULLED PORK SANDWICH for dinner last night.
For the record, if I HAVE to die, I want to die with one of those fries in my mouth.
Because they are heaven.

Anywho, how in the WORLD did I get down to 110 pounds? I've never weighed that! Even when I was born I was... okay, 11 pounds 7 ounces, but still! For a baby, I was huge!
My doctor gave me the whole speech about how I need to be eating calories because I'm working now and burning more than I eat, yada yada.
But how can I eat any more? I eat like a garbage disposal as it is.

I guess it's a task I'm willing to conquer... bring on the food.Halloween Candy, doctor's orders.

Can we somehow trade metabolisms?

Too bad we can't swap weight, like a good pair of shoes. I've got plenty to spare!

Maybe there is a machine that we can be hooked up too that can suck the weight out of me and put some in to you.

i am so jealous that you still have your halloween candy left.

I went through stages like this when I was younger where my body would just drop weight (before my baby makin days). Now, I just wish it would.

Wish I had that problem! I'm withering in jealousy right now. LOL!

But seriously...

Eat more pasta. And send the french fries to me.

I kind of wish my body was like that! I lost close to 20 pounds and then my weight kind of plateaued...with going to the gym a lot...

Enjoy the food and try not to worry about it too much, hard to do I know! :)

I'd give anything to be back at 110 pounds! I have gained so much weight and I'm not thrilled about it. But I am 34, not exactly a spring chicken anymore. Things change when you hit your 30s so I've learned. Enjoy youself and don't worry so much!

I wish I had your doctor's scale. Mine told me last week that I have already gained six pounds since I got pregnant. Yikes!

Just found your blog through a friend, and I like it! You should check mine out, too, if you want. Good luck gaining the weight back. That should be fun.
