As soon as I stopped going to the gym I started gaining weight. My "puppy" broke my scale. Its funny because hes huge, but its not his weight that broke it. He carried it out to the living room and dropped it down the stairs. Luckily it still weighs you it just lies and says youre much lighter than you are. I like it, I think Im going to keep it. I didnt eat any extra food, but I need to work out a LOT to lose weight. Its funny because I am a really healthy eater.
