I don’t trust the scales at the gym at all.  Honestly, I don’t trust a lot of scales because I seem to weigh different amounts from one doctor’s scales to another.  Just because they have the little moving thingies doesn’t mean that they can’t be in need of repair!

You are very right that the scales could be off to get people to keep renewing their membership, but muscles weighs more than fat. So you could have gained a little muscle and lost some fat..maybe?

Props on working out! I’m actually pretty excited about going to the gym in the morning…if mr.bobby would go to bed soon..

I don’t think I said but the scales at my old gym said I was 10 pounds heavier too!

And I wanted to hit it because I have never been that heavy in my life.

Nope, I don’t trust those money-hungry-gym-fool’s sneaky scales! Plus, I’m always fully dressed at the gym and I don’t want to know my weight with clothing on 🙂 I want to weigh as little as humanly possible so I weigh myself nakie at home.

What are toning tables?

I’ve never heard of toning tables either.  That’s really interesting.

I used to work for LA fitness and they would jack the scale up 5-10  lbs because during the sign up for the personal training they would weight you and it would make you sign up faster if you thought you were heavier than you were

How evil! I knew they were tricksters.

@okqueenbee- something is better than nothing! Good for you for doing something and for going to the gym at night. I find it really difficult to leave home at night. I get too cozy.
