I'm a scale junkie!!!!!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

When I first began working out I remember reading a post somewhere about a person being addicted to the scale. As I read the post I didn't understand what she meant when she said "addicted". Guess what?!?!?! I GET IT!!!!!! emoticon

I jump on the scale every chance I get!!! emoticon As soon as I wake up in the morning (but after I use the restroom and get undressed), when I get home from work, at night before I go to bed. Sometimes I'll even hop on in the middle of the night when I get up to use the bathroom. I can't believe that I have actually become OBSESSED with the damn thing. I'm a slave to the scale and I need to emoticon!!!! The only reason this is a bad thing is because when I see the numbers fluctuate, I kinda get sad about it and a bit discouraged. I totally understand that our weights fluctuate and even though I measure myself once a month to TRULY determine my weight loss I can't help to be infatuated with the number on the scale.

My new mission?????? To weigh in ONLY once a week!!!! I'll give it a shot starting today. If I can't get it together I'll have to have someone in the house hide it from me!!! LOL

Wish me luck!!

    If you have a scale that is digital, take the battery out and only put it in on the day you weigh in (once a week). It is kind of a pain in the butt to have to put the battery in everytime you want to weigh so this might discourage you from doing it as often.
