Scales are evil tricksters.

Okay, confession time: 

I'm a scale whore.

There, I wrote it for all to read. I'm a slave to my scale. I weigh myself every single day, usually multiple times. I weigh myself as soon as wake up, after I pee, right before my shower, right after my shower, and randomly throughout the day if the urge hits. I like to see how my weight fluctuates. Through all of this, I've learned that my lowest weight is around 10am--I have NO idea why (I bet I could google that). 

So I've used my WW scale for YEARS, but I wasn't confident of its accuracy anymore once I could step on it several times in a row and get a different weight every time. I decided to buy a new scale, and I LOVE it. 


My new scale weighs me 2-3 pounds heavier than my old WW scale--which is fine, I'd rather get accurate readings! Well, this has lead to a new obsession...

When I get a new low weight on the new scale, I check the WW scale too. I need to get rid of it. 

I thought of this because this morning I weighed 231.6, which put me at 228.7 on the WW scale. My ticker shows 230.5--I can't wait until I lose a couple more pounds and can update it for real. 

Anyway. That's all.

I don't think there is anything wrong with weighing everyday. However, I do think that weighing on multiple scales may be a tad obsessive. You know what you're want to see the lower number even though you know it's not likely as accurate. I say ditch the WW scale and just go with the new reliable.

I'm a once a week weigher, I find I worry too much about the number if I'm weighing in more than once a week.

I have scale issues too!!! Once I threw a scale in the trash and it was brand new. I have a love/hate relationship with scales!!
