Question for today:
When is the scale your friend and not your enemy?
Answer: When the numbers reflect your hard work – and – when it helps you win a trip to Mexico!
Of course, I am referring to Diane’s awesome win yesterday. She lost a total of 23.67% of her body weight for a total weight loss of 55.5 lbs. Brilliant. Absolutely billiant! There weren’t any magic pills or secret weight loss cures involved. It was just good ol’ hard work and being conscious about diet and exercise that made Diane a winner!
I used to really dislike the scale. I avoided it at all costs. I now know why…because truth was in the numbers and the scale does not lie. Before we started this odyssey I would not weigh because if I had done so the scale would have read 155 lbs – not an acceptable weight for me. At 155 lbs that number would have meant, “You need to do something now!”, but by avoiding the scale I was able to continue to eat too much, exercise too little, party too much.
It’s been 124 days and I now have a very different relationship with my scale. Does it define who I am? Absolutely not. What the scale does for me is keeps me honest. It keeps me true to the goals I have set for myself. I told Jimmy last night – it feels so good to be thinner. He agreed.
Thank you, scale 🙂
Have a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Saturday!
