My scale sucks.. if I stand on my scale and shift my weight so it’s on my toes/front of the feet, I can easily add 5 lbs onto my weight but if I stand with the weight on my heals, I lose.. So every time I stand on the scale I have to try to stand the same way or my weight is drastically off. I think it’s time for a new scale. So I am going to start saving my money for this new scale.
I honestly am not a huge fan of knowing exactly what my weight is.. If I’m 140 and I don’t have a belly, I’ll be happy.. even 150 and no belly I’ll be happy. My goal is to slowly lose weight until I’m at a point where I’m happy with how I look, where I can fit into clothes and my spare tire isn’t the only thing I see.. I want to look lean and fit not anorexic and too skinny. As long as I’m not gaining I don’t care, but for the longest time I looked at the number on the scale. 190, 180.. it really just made my day or ruined it when I stepped on that scale, often it would completely sabotage my weight-loss goals all together. Not so much anymore but after doing some research I found a scale that might help… say hello to the Quantum Scale!
What I like about this scale is basically you step on it the first time and it calculates your weight.. it doesn’t display your weight but rather every time you step on it following it gives you a + or – amount rather than your actual weight. It’s a personal scale, so you can’t share it with other family members.. it’s meant for one person. It has a max of 330 lbs but rather than stepping on the scale and seeing that you’re 300 lbs you’ll see that you’ve lost 10 lbs total since the first time you stepped on the scale.. Way more motivating to see a -10 then the 300 lbs..
I think it’s a brilliant idea and I’m saving for it right now.. Once I get one, I’ll let you know how I like it.
What do you think of this type of scale, do you think something like this would help you with your weight-loss goals? For many of us that scale is evil, this scale seems way more weight-loss friendly doesn’t it?
