Math Fail - Fitness Win

I haven't been posting about it a lot, but since mid-March I've been using the SparkPeople.com site to help me with weight loss. My progress has been slower than I would have liked, but the community aspect has helped me to persevere through plateaus that would have prompted me to quit in the past.

Each morning I weigh myself and enter my weight in my SP tracker. (You don't have to weigh yourself every day to do their program; it's what's best for me.) I watch the line slope gently downward on my report, and the little ticker move to the right on my sig line tracker, but I hadn't been "counting down" the pounds in my head. Every so often I'd do some simple mental math, but not think much about it.

Today my weight finally dipped down again after a several week plateau. I was delighted. I thought that *maybe* I'd lost about 15 pounds, but I wanted to check. So I got out the calculator and entered the numbers.

No, not 15.

25.5

I boggled, re-checked my numbers from the site, ran them three more times. Same result.

25.5 pounds down.

*happy dance
