How Are You Dressed When You Step on the Scale?


There is a scale in the women's locker room at my gym and every time I am there I notice about six or seven women weigh themselves during the minutes in the course of my getting dressed or undressed. After much observing, the procedure seems to go like this: Walk over to scale in nothing but towel. Get scale ready to go. Scale signals it's ready. Drop towel. Sigh loudly. Pick towel (and yourself) up off the floor. Head back to your locker, naked.

I've never been one for scales, nor have I ever been one for bearing it all in the locker room, so this is not for me. In fact, I think if I were going to weigh myself, my bra and panties would suffice -- I mean how much can an undies and bra add to my weight? As always though, I know we all have our own weighs ways of doing this so I am curious how you weigh yourself.
