I'm trying to decide what this says about me

So like most people (I assume) I have a love/hate relationship with my scales.  Mostly a hate relationship, actually, but whatever.  Every now and then I say to myself, "JUST STOP WEIGHING YOURSELF EVERY MORNING."  But somehow I am compelled to get on the scale every a.m. just to see where that late-night cupcake and bowl of popcorn, followed by a Dr. Pepper chaser, went.

Ken Cannon weighs himself every morning, too, although with considerably less neuroses.  Anyway.  Here's the deal.  Whenever KC weighs himself, he makes sure the needle starts out EXACTLY on the Zero.  When I weigh myself, I . . . fudge.  I don't exactly set the needle in negative numbers territory (yes!  I just used some algebra right there!), but I like to be on the slim side of zero.

Just like I apparently like to be on the slim side of truth.

At least when it comes to my weight.

Living in denial is a perfectly acceptable way to live.

There's memoir in there, somewhere: "On the Slim Side of Truth." I'd read that.

I wrote about Christie Brinkley to see if I had the same experience you did....ie lots of readers.
we will see. And yes living in denial is the correct way to live

I've got fancy digital scales and I haven't hooked them up yet. I only weigh myself sporadically. Is this good? Is this bad? Who can say!

So glad I'm not the only one who does this!!
