Tipping the Scales
Scales need to be on a hard surface to register correctly, right? In our bathroom, we only have a tiny amount of tile, the rest is carpet. There is just a small section in the toilet closet. So, we need to store the scale upright, and move it down when it's time to weigh. I do wish we had a bit more room so that I could leave the scale in a stationary position.
Anyone else have silly scale situations?
I mentioned on Monday that Hubs has begun his own weight loss journey (again). He hadn't stepped on a scale in a while, and he hadn't ever stepped on THIS scale ... I got it this past January. I had to laugh at his Facebook post: "I decided to step on the scale this morning. It's a new-fangled digital device that went through about 20 seconds of "SENSING", whatever that is. At the conclusion of the sensing cycle it insensitively registered "ERR" and no weight reading. Perhaps a hint of some sort..."
The Fitbit Aria scale CAN be a bit temperamental. I know as I shift it from the upright to the down position, I can't step on right away. I need to give it a minute or two to calibrate or something. Hubby has since had a readout as he weighed in. He doesn't have a Fitbit (yet), but I did set him up an account to track his weight wirelessly. He hasn't weighed in a few days ... he says he's only going to weigh-in every week or so.
I weigh in every day, with "official" weigh-ins on Friday. It's been a bit bumpy lately. The weight dropped this morning, if I can maintain, I'd be fine with this number for my Friday weigh-in. But ... tomorrow IS Thanksgiving. So we'll see. I don't really plan on overeating, but exercise will be impacted. Linking up with Weigh In Wednesday ...
