Here's a power move



Recommended Posts

The scale that I use is a talking scale that announces my weight. I don't care for that feature but this was the only scale I could find at the time that supported my ample proportions. Over all, it works fine. But I dread the point where my weight locks in and it begins to mockingly announce my weight to the world. My house is a cookie cutter house with hollow core doors that amplify all sound. So if I am unable to step off the scale before it starts talking, there is no way to stop it once it starts talking. At that point, I just want to crawl into a hole and die. I don't know why all scales for me are talking. Do they think fat people can't read? WTF?

So a few days ago, I decided enough was enough. I took that scale apart and cut out the speaker. Now I can weigh myself without feeling like the whole world is watching. Even after I lose all this weight, I don't think I'll ever stop thinking like a fat person.

Hope you can solder the speaker back on when you want to announce your progress to the world

Why in the world did you think it was a good idea to buy a scale that talked!?!?! :thud:

I figured out that mine showed the last person who used it's weight when I stepped on it for a brief second before displaying my own and I almost threw it out the window.

JEEZUS!!

LMAO! I love that you took the speaker out of that thing. I, like you would be mortified that it announced my weight, especially when I was at my biggest.

I think I would have smashed it a long time ago.

Hang in there!

My (least %&^%*&) favorite thing about my WII fit was when it would have you get on the platform to help you track your weight and activity and it would literally say "OOOOOOF" when i stepped on. B!tch.

@@Jerr_Bear , you are a better man than me.

I'd have thrown that mofo down in the driveway and driven over it.

I can see me right now with a talking scale.......I step up on it and it speaks, "One at a time please". Aww.....hell no ! It'd been destroyed ASAP.

I dunno. That Siri, she can really be a little b**** sometimes.

What I want to know, is there a way to get the scale to lie? Say, announce much lighter weight? Or maybe, give you compliments?

@@Dub I think my scale had reached skynet-like intelligence and started adding comments like, "looks like that piece of cake wasn't such a good idea after all."

Why don't they make a scale with a "volume control knob ? Or maybe one that says " Hey there,sexy !" or "lookin' good today! " , or something like " Hey ! You've lost x amount of weight since you were last here ! " Something incouraging ! Thats what this world needs !!

Not me! I need a scale that says "Get off, fat ass!!", "Go walk a few miles and then come back and visit me.", "Put the Oreos down, fatty!".

Seriously. I don't work well with enablement.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
