I think most of us have a love hate relationship with our scales, when they give us the result that we want we are crazy happy, when they don’t…well…it could get really ugly, really fast!
Conair has a new scale by Weight Watchers and it comes with encouraging sticky messages like smile, you go girl, etc. They sent me a sample of their scale and I love it because honestly, who doesn’t want to see these words greet you as you get ready to weigh yourself?
I love this because how many times have I begged the scale to be my friend? One of the crazy things about this whole weight loss thing is that we get all caught up in the number.
Let’s face it, we love to tell folks that we have lost x amount of weight, but get equally as angry with the scale when things go wrong.
I strongly believe that you should decide when the scale works for you, whether its once a week, once a month, once every six months etc. There are so many conflicting reports of when to weigh, how often to weigh, or whether to weigh yourself at all!
I am of the personal opinion of weighing whenever you feel lighter.
That’s is my grand secret.
In addition to weighing myself however, I do use the scale for other reasons such as:
Weighing my bags before I get on the plane–I am a terrible overpacker.
Weighing my kids–especially after my youngest lost so much weight in the hospital
I have been crazy tough on myself lately when it comes to the scale because I am a tad bit impatient and all though the weight is going places
and sometimes making a return trip, I will be easier on myself and “smile” when I get on the scale.
