I've been reading a lot of blogs lately about this particular "relationship," and I sympathize. It can be a very frustrating one, no doubt.
Most of the time it doesn't accurately reflect the progress we're making on our journey. I agree with my sparkfriends who have blogged about this, that NSV's are a much better indicator of our successes. And the scale is usually not our friend!
And perhaps I do have an unusual relationship with my scale. But here's where I am with it. Decide for yourself, if I'm kooky or not!
When I started this journey, I was in the 240's. Didn't like the scale at all then! Still didn't like it when I started going down into the 230's, maybe not even in the 220's. But once I started seeing the two-teens, and now the two-oohhs, I kinda like looking at that scale a little more often. Right now, I'm at 205 . . . and I haven't seen that in well over 2 decades! And the closer I get to Onederland, the more often I want to keep stepping on that darn thing!!!
So sometimes, I guess, I do like my scale!
