Scale Sabotage!

Awhile back I blogged about living with the future in-laws. Well, last week they were home on vacation (how fun!). Mostly they worked around the house and went on short outings to NYC, the beach, etc. My future mother-in-law, however, found the time to break my scale. I was at work when this went down so I didn't know the extent of the damages.

This was not just any scale though. This was a Tanita Body Fat/Body Water Scale that made suggests on caloric intake based on your body composition and stores your previous measurements for comparison. It is one sexy scale. Needless to say it cost my a pretty penny, but I'm worth it. I was devastated to think that the scale I have been using for the past 3 years was broken. The idea of starting all over with a new scale freaked me out.

Of course, she offered to replace the scale, but I knew once she found out how much it cost, the judgement would begin- You spent WHAT on a scale?!

To my surprise, I got home to find my scale safe! Cracked on the plastic covering the digital display, but SAFE!

I am ecstatic that I will be reporting to you from said scale after tonight's weigh in. Wish me luck!

So what did the cracked scale say?

I'm afraid to ask how your future MIL managed to even do that?

The cracked scale cost $80 and had me at +0.6 this week... boo!

I still haven't been told exactly how she did it, just that she was "cleaning", which usually means she was snooping.
