I hate the scale!

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Yup, I hate the scale! I despise the scale! I'm driving myself crazy with weighing myself constantly. I weigh in the am, after I eat, late afternoon and evening. I'm nuts! Why am I doing this to myself. I cannot stay away from it. I cannot believe that I used to get on the scale just once a week. But this has gotten ridiculous. I need to ween off the scale lol. I have realized that the scale dictates my mood. If I'm up I get upset and critical of myself and if I'm down I am elated and high. This is putting a new spin on bi-polar. lol. Not to make a joke of the illness... I happen to be bi-polar and it is no joke. But getting back to the scale. I don't want to get rid of it but I need to find a happy medium. I would welcome any suggestions. Thanks emoticon

    Lock the scale in the trunk of your car and make your keys a multiple step to get. Yes I had to do it as I had a point where I just couldn't stay off it. emoticon

    emoticon I now exactly what you mean...I try and weigh myself once a week-just to avoid the emotional roller coaster. We are more than a number & the results will show in many ways-looser clothes for one.

    I totally understand. Sometimes, I just want to throw the scale, and use it as body building tool, and throw it as far as I can! It can be totally a downer sometimes. I found another article and more that I hope helps. I will be reading them too. Hang in there girl! You are awesome! emoticon emoticon

    I had the same problem. I put it under the bathroom sink in the master bathroom. Since, I'm a SAHM I rarely go back there except at night or to take a shower. While I still weigh myself every day, I don't weigh myself 10x a day anymore.

    I know exactly how you feel! I have to weigh myself every morning and if I don't I am in a tizz.

I don't really have any advice for you, but know that you are not alone!

    Weighing that often is never a good idea. Maybe take the scale to your mom's house or somewhere like that and then only weigh once a week or month. Just a suggestion. :) Best wishes to you!

    emoticon I had the same problem. I asked my husband to hide it from me but I would always find it. Finally I just began weighing myself ONCE a month. That gave me more time for the ups and downs that I knew were coming in 4 weeks.
