Hide The Dingdang Thing!

This Sparked Me!

To keep myself from getting SCALE RAGE, I had my kids hide the scale and made them promise not to tell me where it is until my weigh in dates. This keeps me from weighing myself everyday and being pissed off and eventually giving up like I have done so many times before.

    My hubby and I have started on a weight loss journey Feb 6, and I found myself wanting to weigh myself once if not twice a day. Its killing me, but I gave my hubby the battery from the scale to hide until Saturday. I do not know if I will last that long; and feel like I have lost more weight and want to check....but if I haven't I will be VERY upset. It is comforting to know that others have similar issues....

    I only weight myself every few weeks. doing it weekly and only be discouraging if you don't see any weight loss.

    It just seems like a bigger number at the end of the week, more satisfying if you don't peek......
