There's no physical way someone can gain 30lbs in a day, correct? That's got to be impossible? Scale is broken?

I weighed myself yesterday and was one weight and weighed myself today and the number jumped up 30lbs! Now, the number from yesterday has been pretty consistent so I'm pretty sure I haven't been reading the scale wrong for the last couple days.

I do have a young kid and she's been "weighing" things on the scale and having more fun on a scale than I ever thought possible. Maybe it's not registering correctly now?

Please tell me I'm not a freak show and by the morning, I won't be on a TLC show.

Maybe she played with the dial that sets it to zero. Also if a heavy object was left on it too long, it can mess up the calibration. Digital scales can read wrong if the batteries are dying.

Yup, pretty sure that is impossible. :)
