Stupid scale

I weigh myself every day. There is much debate in the weight-loss universe on the subject of how often to step on the scale. Some say once per week, or every day, or once a month. Some say you shouldn't weigh yourself at all, instead opting to gauge your progress through body measurements.

When I first started my little project, I weighed in every few days. I had no system to it. I'm kind of glad I did it that way in the beginning. If I stepped on the scale on a daily basis, I probably would've quit dieting and exercising very early on. These days, I feel like I need a daily reminder of where I've been, where I am now, and where I'm hopefully going.

The reason I think the scale is stupid is, this morning I stepped on it and it said 171. That made me very happy, but I thought it might be a fluke, so I got on again. Still 171. I got reallly excited and told Angie, but then I made the mistake of getting on again and it was 173. I got on 3 more times, and it was still 173. Dammit.
