There has been a scale in our bathroom at work for years. Someone who no longer works here didn't take it with her when she left. I'm so used to using it, that I still step on it every time I walk past it! Ha, ha. It just says "error". Now our office is moving in a couple weeks and I don't know if there is room for one at the new building, and we'll be sharing a restroom with other companies on our floor. My company has the whole floor where we are now, so it wasn't strange to have it here. We also have a separate private room connected to the bathroom here, so the scale isn't actually in the bathroom.
It's so strange. I'm working really hard right now to get ready for a vacation in June. I know I'll be able to tell my progress by how my clothes fit, what I look like, and how much overhang there is above my jeans and pantyhose. Hate those pantyhose!
But I really like to see that number. And I really like to see that number go down. Which it should be doing during the next few weeks with all the work I'm doing. And I want to see it! But then again, I'm tempted to give it a few weeks and see how it feels not to know the number but pay more attention to the changes.
PS: I was just going to post this but took a quick break. I stepped on the scale just now without thinking about it, looked down, realized how silly I was, then saw that it actually gave me a number instead of saying error! I was so surprised because I haven't been able to get this to work all week. Now I don't know if I can trust the number, but I sure liked it! It actually said what I expected it to, but it's still nice to see the number. I'll probably wait until we've moved and then buy a new scale I can depend on, but it was pretty funny that it started working just now.
