It's time once again for a weight post! :)

I've decided to start distrusting my scale. My numbers were being _waaaay_ too consistent given how much everyone talks about your weight changing on a daily basis. I think perhaps the scale isn't fully accurate down to a tenth of a pound, and thus to compensate if your weight falls within a certain range of your last measurement (0.2-0.5 lbs perhaps?) it just defaults to the previous measurement. For most of this week if i get the same measurement as the day before i reweigh myself while holding something heavy, then re-reweigh myself normally, and each time the third measurement has been different from the first.

I've continued to update the spreadsheet, and beth_leonard showed me how to make dual axe wielding dual-axis charts, so i've got one showing my weight and fat weight, one showing my trend and fat trend, and one that crams all four lines together in a single chart. (You have to scroll a little to the right to see them.)

But here's just the numbers for the last week:

06-07: 194.3 lbs - 51.0 lbs fat - 26.3% fat - 28.1 BMI
06-08: 193.3 lbs - 50.6 lbs fat - 26.2% fat - 27.9 BMI
06-09: 193.3 lbs - 50.6 lbs fat - 26.2% fat - 27.9 BMI
06-10: 193.1 lbs - 50.3 lbs fat - 26.1% fat - 27.9 BMI
06-11: 193.5 lbs - 50.8 lbs fat - 26.3% fat - 28.0 BMI
06-12: 191.6 lbs - 49.5 lbs fat - 25.9% fat - 27.7 BMI
06-13: 191.8 lbs - 49.6 lbs fat - 25.9% fat - 27.7 BMI
06-14: 193.6 lbs - 50.6 lbs fat - 26.2% fat - 28.0 BMI

The dip on tuesday might have been just because i was extra-dehydrated from Wumpskate, but if so i'm not sure why it took two days to recover from it.
