I’m sure you have all seen the “grumpy cat” memes by now. It’s just a cat that doesn’t like something. Let me start with a back story.

This morning I decided to weigh myself 3 times.

First weigh in – immediately after waking up – 187.6

Second weigh in – after bathroom break – 186.4

Third weigh in – after kodiak pancakes, water, and coffee – 188

In just 30 minutes my weight went down 1.2 lbs of just water weight. Then up 1.6 lbs.

This is why we should not rely on a daily weigh in. These numbers can be misleading.

So if the scale is grumpy cat, the thing it doesn’t like is obsessing over the number on the scale.
