frustration of a new scale
Thursday, July 22, 2010
I've been weighing on my old cheapy (but tried and true) spin the dial scale. My digital one quit a while back to I pulled out the old one. Wednesday, weigh in day, I broke out the fancy one just to check one last time before I pitched it. Somehow it is working again. Should make me happy but... according to my old scale I'm at 192 or only 2 pounds away from my next mini-goal. Fancy scale says oh no - 196.8 So not happy. The digital one is probably more accurate (based on the way my close fit today vs how they fit closer to 190) so I guess I'll stick with that, but I can't deny that I'm a little sad.
In the past I wasn't at all addicted to the scale. I weighed in once a week, and that was fine. I didn't care if the scale was totally accurate, as long as it was consistent and showed my progress. Somehow this time around I've become obsessed with accuracy and found myself stepping on the scale everytime I went into the bathroom. Can't explain it, but won't be a slave to the scale. I put both of them up, and won't look until next Wednesday.
Right now I just need to focus on the fact that my thighs don't rub together as much when I walk and my bras are getting looser. Those are always the first areas to show progress/relapse.
Off to clean out some closets now. Blecchhhh!
