Tell me your scale tales....please....
Saturday, June 26, 2010
Been sitting here for a week deciding what to share and not bore you all to death.
I spent all day yesterday on the blogs reading and occassionally responding. And discovered that I like to read the newbies and anything with the word 'scale' (stupid scale, I hate my scale, etc.) in the title.
So rather than tell you about my so-so week - please give me your best tale about the scale or maybe even tell me about the types of blogs you like to read.
Thanks in advance. And I'll even start this with my own scale tale...
Didn't own one for a long time. I wasn't my highest, but still weighed in the high 200's. Someone that I considered a friend gave me hers (what was she telling me, or what was I saying to her that made her think I needed one). An old balanced 'health-o-meter'. I put it in the spare bathroom at the far end of the hallway, where I seldom went other than to clean the cobwebs out of the porcelain features.
Occassionally when I felt a need to depress myself, I would walk down that hallway and step on. I could actually vary the weight by as much as 15 pounds just by leaning way forward or way back. Only fooling myself that much more.
Around the first of this year, 'health-o-meter' posted a $10 off coupon which I took to my nearest Walmart and found a nice little digital scale that remembers two weights (I use it #1 without clothing & #2 with clothing) and I got it for a bargain price of $8+tax. Not as good as free, but atleast I didn't feel judged by a friend.
Now this may not be as interesting as your scale tales, but I can still lean forward and back and step on with the right foot before the left etc to get different weights. But the variance is only a pound or two, so my official weigh-ins are done on a totally different scale and in front of a witness. No more lying to me! Smiles
