LOL! Oh man, my kids did the same thing with my scale! I remember when I bought it (after my forth). I was so gungho for it to be my exercise buddy. However, it eventually became my weighing packages buddy, my weighing foods buddy and once was my weighing a book buddy, cause I was curious to see how much it weighed. But that’s my story. Hope you have much more success with your weight loss journey!
As some of you may know I just started on this weight watchers plan. 2 kids have left me with 42 extra pounds and I’ve been carrying it around for too long (if over weight people carry extra weight around every day should they not be the fitest people???) We have no bathroom scale at our house. I went out to purchase one and brought it home. In the kitchen I unpacked all my shopping for that day and pulled out the scale. The instructions said to set it on a flat surface, let it warm up to room temperature and then explained how to adjust it before beginning. I unwrapped the scale, placed it on the floor andset about other things letting it ‘warm up’. The kids came home and saw the new ‘toy’ and tried weighing everything they could get their hands on. Since you need to stand on and off several times in order to calibrate the scale I thought this was all good. As the minutes ticked by the scale got pushed aside and came to rest under the counter at my ‘baking station’ of the kitchen. When Mr.RedApple came home he took one look and commented “Is THIS your new diet plan? Putting the scale right in front of the KitchenAid so everytime you go to make yourself brownies you have to stand on the scale and will rethink your decision?” Funny it was but likely would work too. Now I need to also place a scale infront of the fridge, the pantry, etc. etc. etc.!!!
