    Shoot the scale!

    Shop Now
    How can an intelligent well schooled adult with a degree in a health related field get so tied up with her scale? It doesn't seem to matter that I feel the best that I have in years. It doesn't seem to matter that my clothes all seem to be looser and fitting better. It doesn't seem to matter that I consistently get compliments from total strangers. All that I know is that stepping on that scale and seeing that number seemingly stuck can put me in a free-fall. I know all the fat vs muscle arguments..believe me I preach them to others. But when it's my body, on that scale seeing the number that I've grown to hate....Maybe I should just shoot the scale.

    Hahahaha!

    No, seriously, this is why my trainer didn't want me to weigh myself every day. I told her it doesn't bother me at all when the home scale shows I've gained a touch, since usually I know what I did to make that happen. But if it bothers you, I definitely would suggest you only weigh once a week. That'll give you a better picture of what's happening anyway.

    Or you could always sell the scale. More practical than shooting it.

    Have to agree. Violent destruction, just to make a point.

    My weightloss has really stalled a bit lately, and have been thinking of going on a "scale fast" and just take measurements every month or so, for the next 4 or so months.

    That scale is such a liar. Just like our politicians.
    All time high weight 262 lbs
    Primal since Spring 2012
    Start PB Weight: 240 lbs ish
    Current Weight: 220lbs ish
    Goal Weight:190-200 lbs
    All on a 6ft. 1/2 inch frame.

    I can't wait to meet my abs for the first time in my life. We gotta lot of catching up to do.

    I love this way of eating and hope to be able to help others.

    The trouble is that "what can't be measured, can't be managed". As imperfect as it is, it's an all-important number. In turn, that's a goal. Looser clothes and feeling better are hard to quantify.
