I’ve determined over the years that I have an addictive personality when it comes to certain things. When I find something I’m into I tend to get to the point where I’m almost obsessed. My latest obsession is the scale, it is for this reason alone the wife and I don’t have one in our house. I’ll admit there are days that I’ll jump on the scale at work as many as three times in a single day. While I know this can be bad for motivation, I find myself drawn to that contraption that either makes us happy or can make us cry with the displaying of just a few little numbers. Keeping that in mind I find this obsession to be a love/hate relationship. I love it when the #’s are down, but hate it when my #’s are up. Often counter-productive and uncontrollable at times this seems to play head games with me and can alter my mood tremendously for better or worse.
What is your latest obsession? Do you have an addictive personality as well?
