After recently reading "Racing Weight" by Matt Fitzgerald I decided to buy a better scale to track my efforts to get skinnier in 2010. My plan backfired. Right out of the box, my new scale reads almost two pounds heavier than my old bathroom scale. WTF! I just started and I am already two pounds in the hole!
My new fancy-schmancy body composition scale
Now, I realize that as long as I use the same scale moving forward it is all relative but the mental blow has already been dealt. Not only does the new scale read "heavier" than my old scale, it puts me over my personal "you are too heavy" threshold of 170 lbs. And don't even get me started on the body fat % number it is showing me. Ugh.
