One of 70 Bajillion Reasons Why The Scale Is Whack

oh who even cares.

So, as you may know, I tend to think the scale isn’t very important in living a healthy life, or even really in a weight loss journey. But that’s another post. And a much longer one. I just wanted to share this experience with you all.

I only get on the scale mid-week when I’m feeling curious as to how different activities affect my weight. I don’t do it a lot because I generally don’t really care what the scale has to tell me, but today after my run, the shower was taking a long time to warm up.

So I got on the scale

It showed a number, which is +1.4 pounds from what I “weighed in” at on Friday morning right after waking up. Today (shockingly) I ate and drank–what I weigh on a random evening isn’t really comparable to what I weigh first thing in the morning.

Then I went to the bathroom. And got on the scale again. Going to the bathroom made me gain 1.2 pounds.

Then I showered. And I got on the scale again. With wet hair. And i lost 0.2 pounds!

Clearly there’s no rhyme or reason to any of this.

But maybe it’s having a funky scale with an attitude problem that helps me to be so disinterested in what it has to say.

  1. Funny! I actually weighed myself before and after a visit to the bathroom and I’d lost 3 lbs! LOL I know it’s TMI but I absolutely cracked up!

  2. I comletely agree! I use to be a slave to the scale and not anymore. My body fluctuates through so much stuff. I use to get myself all worked up. Not any more. Once I learned the scale is whack, I was a much calmer person.

    Great post as always. Keep them coming!! I love it!!
