Well, that's it! I am done, done, done with the scale.


I've reached the weight and the point where my scale is no longer helpful to me and it is distracting me from reaching my goals so I drowned it in the bathtub. It was kind of funny and totally freeing! It's electronic so I put the plug in the tub and turned on the water and then when it got nice and full I flipped the scale over to make sure I totally fried it. I know how my brain works if I threw it in the trash I'd have dug it back out and trash pick up isn't here until Monday. I had to do it while I felt strong enough to do it. I bought a measuring tape today and am going to get some measurements taken. In 2 months I'm going to have my body fat checked again. My new goal is 22% body fat (even if I gain weight instead of losing it which is why I had to get rid of the scale). Anyhow, I'm going to have my body fat checked in 2 months maybe 3 months depending how I feel, how I look, and how many inches I've lost. And if I am above 22% body fat I am not checking weight. If I am at 22% body fat or better then I will have him check my weight too. I'm afraid knowing my weight will just throw me off from getting to the body fat I want so I am not checking it until I am there. I am considering this an experiment. I am real curious what my weight will wind up being at a 22% body fat. I'll add my measurements to my picture thread later today.
