My New Scale

It was time to get rid of my scale. The old scale would give me a different reading every time I stepped on it. I would step on it and move it until I got my best weight. We were friends. I liked that scale. It seemed to know when to give me a good number. And I would move it all over the bathroom until I got the that good number.

And then I would go weigh in at Weight Watchers.

And it was like dooms day when I got on that scale. There was always a discrepancy of 3-5 pounds with Weight Watcher’s scale. I really believed that I was losing more weight than I was. I really believed my home scale. I really thought the Weight Watchers scale was wrong. I was so mad at my Weight Watchers meeting at my last weigh in, I thought about quitting.

But instead of quitting (I WILL NOT QUIT) We just bought a new scale. So….

Liar liar pants on fire. I have not lost 39 pounds. I have lost 36.8 pounds. My new scale made me gain weight. I weighed in today at 164.7. My BMI is 29.2. I am on the border of overweight and obese. I think I am going to cry.

But this is a journey. It is not a race. It is a lifestyle. It is my new life.

My new friend is the Withings Scale. We got the Cadillac of scales. You step on the scale and it records my weight, BMI, Fat Mass, Pulse and air quality. I am not sure what air quality has to do with weight loss but it is a feature. And I can get on it 5 times in a row and I will get the same reading. This scale can not be manipulated. It then records on my I-Phone through my Withings App. And it connects to my other app My Fitness Pal. And I have the Weight Watcher App. So now I have 3 apps on my phone to tell me how fat I am. Lucky me.

But this is a journey. It is not a race. It is a lifestyle. It is my new life.
