To Weigh or Not to Weigh

This is my first post from my phone, so bear with me 😉

I’ve been having a love hate relationship with the scale lately. My friend Yasi blogged about her experience with a scale and ever since then I’ve been wondering about my relationship with my scale. The scale is in another bathroom across the house so I don’t have to think about it much. Once I finally remember I need to weigh in, it’s after a couple cheat days and I’m usually feeling disgusting, then I get on the scale and I end up feeling worse than I did before the weigh in. Or I’ll remember at night and I truly feel that weighing in at night should be against the law, it always ends bad. The point of this battle with the scale is that I think I’m going to purchase my own and not rely on the one across the house. I’m going into this purchase realizing that this could end badly. I don’t want to weigh obsessively multiple times a day, but I do feel that I need more of a visual confirmation that my body is changing.

I feel like this part of the journey is the hardest. I’ve lost some weight and I feel like I look better so I can go two different ways with this. I can get lazy because I’ve accomplished something and slip back into old ways, or I can be diligent and keep up the good work. I’m hoping having the scale will help me attain the latter way.

What do you think about the scale? I’m I setting myself up for obsessing or could the scale be a good thing?
