So, I mentioned on the Stop Lying about Your Weight thread (among other places) that I was making my best guess at my own weight (170-180), but I haven’t stepped on a scale in ages, for the sake of my sanity. But then I started thinking, well, what if I’m underestimating my weight and therefore being part of the problem? So for the first time in a looooong time, I actually wanted to know the real number, for a good reason. Unfortunately, I still didn’t have a scale and wasn’t about to go buy one.
But today, when I took Lucille to the vet and had to weigh her, it occurred to me to ask if the doggy scale could hold a person. The answer was yes. And it turns out my pants were indeed on fire.
I weigh 184.6 lbs.
And I am 5’2″.
And I look like this:
Just so we’re clear.
