I got rid of my scale over the summer because it was starting to drive me crazy. I was doing yoga and hiking all the time and getting stronger but the scale wasn't moving. I started to think "hey this stuff isn't working."
What?! Things that are making me strong and fit and happy and sweaty aren't "working?" What I meant was they weren't making the scale move, but they were certainly working in a million different ways to make me better.
So, I stopped weighing myself and eventually took the scale to the "swap pile" at the dump.
I've often wondered in those intervening months what my weight would do if I weren't monitoring it everyday.
Well, I bought a scale today (The Taylor Biggest Loser one). I weigh exactly the same as I did the day I threw the other one away.
It will be interesting to see my body fat change as I continue my workouts, and to see if the scale will change if I start monitoring my calories (or if having the scale here will make me more conscious of my calories and encourage me to monitor them.)
Anyone else find that having a scale in the house changed their behavior?
