I have in the past, been a member of weight loss clubs or organisations.

The routine is always the same.

The person in charge gets out the scales and positions them in exactly the same place every time, I am amazed they do not use a global positioning device at times.

As I got my scales out for my weigh in today it surprised me to find I was doing exactly the same thing, the scales just had to be on the one tile pointing that way each time. Needless to say I had a big smile about it then I came to thinking about other members.

Do you insist that the scales are placed exactly in the same place each time you use them ?

Bad Grin Having scales by the toilet is a great idea I may just do that.
This means as I sit there contemplating my navel or pulling the fluff out of it I could actually weigh myself as well.

All I need do whilst sitting there is put two feet on the scales and hey presto, record the weight that will save me standing on one leg to reduce my weight as I normally do.

Great idea thank you Laughing

Agh, I wish I could dump the scale in the toilet too. Sad I weighted in at only one pound less then I did one week ago. I struggle to get on the damn thing every morning, as though there were a force field blocking my entry. I hope it gets easier.

i move the scale 1/2 a square 3 times each morning and pick the highest weight. then just tell myself eat reasonably and when eating stop when no longer hungery. don't think about it or think about as a comedy skit. Smile

I don't care how my scale is positioned so long as I can read the numbers when I'm standing on it. Mind you, maybe if stepped on it with the numbers upside down, I'd see a greater loss - lol

My scale is always in the same position and pointing the same direction - I've never thought about moving it around, but, stepping on it upside down might be fun too.

I think it is best not to move the scale around. If you can find a place to put it where you don't have to move it, that will help with accuracy. I leave mine in my guest room, in a corner, in front of the full length mirror.

Doubt I used to have a set of talking scales but each time I got on them they said...

"One at a time please"
