Do you own a bathroom scale?

I always wonder what my weight is. I owned one once. Bought from a yard sale for 3 dollars and grumbled why would I pay for something to tell me how fat I was?

Granted I am not fat. But I am a woman. We tend to think that no matter what.

  • Yup, I've got one. Since I can't see it, the damn thing announces my weight when I get on it. Loudly, too. At least as of yet it hasn't said, "Aaaagh! Get off me before I break!"

  • Sadly, it's always telling me I own more than I want. Fat.

  • I just bought a second scale today because I think my old one has pretty much reached the end of its life. Being obsessive about my weight I'm obviously going to continue to use both just to compare the 2 results.

    Side note I got a really cool scale for 17 bucks at Costco that tells me all sorts of info including my basal metabolic rate so I know how many calories I need to just keep being me, and can lower them based on hard I want to work to become a better me.
