My last post got me thinking about how often I weigh myself. I am fairly certain I am addicted to the scale. It sits in our master bathroom calling out my name. I'd love to say I only weigh myself weekly but I would be lying. Heck, I would be lying if I told you I weigh myself once a day. It seems like any time I am in the bathroom I have to weigh myself. I weigh myself first thing when I wake up (and that it the weight I count for weighing in) but then I will also weigh myself after I exercise and after I go to the bathroom, just to see if there is any change.
I know this is excessive and I need to limit myself to at least once a day max, but its hard! I love seeing the numbers go down, it motivates me to keep up what I have been doing. Seeing the numbers go up makes me mad but also helps motivate me to do better. If I had been thinking of skipping my workout that day or eating a few extra points, seeing the number on the scale might stop me.
I also need to get a new scale. I could step on it five times in a row and get five different numbers. That drives me crazy too! I keep trying until I get two of the same number. I tried replacing the battery but I think I just need a new one altogether. I think a trip to Target this weekend is in order!
