Scale isn't working - good or bad thing?

Thursday, May 02, 2013

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.

    I'm imagining all the expletives I would hear if I put a scale in the bathroom at our office. Out of the 8 women on my floor, I'm probably the only one who wouldn't be mad about it. Of course the men wouldn't have access, but if they did, it wouldn't matter because they're all pretty trim.

    I say ditch the scales and pay more attention to the changes in your body ..I hid my scale a month ago bc I kept getting frustrated bc it didn't show what I thought it should instead of being stressed out over the numbers I'm actually enjoying my new healthy lifestyle ..good luck on your weight loss journey
