My battle with my scales
Monday, August 03, 2009
Well, I gave my scales a good talking to. Shook my finger right at it?? I told it that I would not tolerate it getting stuck in one spot and if it didn't do a better job, I would toss it in the junk heap. Did that scare it?? NOT!! It just sat there, very smug, knowing how much it controls me.
I was always told (but never listened) that the older you get, the harder it is to lose weight. I could always lose at the snap of a finger, or so it seemed. Well, maybe it is because my fingers are old and arthritic and can't snap so good anymore. Whatever it is, I need to buckle down and see what I can do to change that.
So now it is onward and upward~~~~~~~OH NO~~~~~~~~~I mean onward and DOWNWARD! Let the scales call me a loser! I love the sound of that!!
I know in my heart (and in my tummy) that I have made some major life style changes. I have learned that many foods smell better than they taste. I also think that perhaps the mere aroma can put pounds on me. One of the Spark friends made the statement that "Being thin is so much better than food tastes" or something like that. How true!!
So as I move along toward the next weigh-day, I will persevere; I will overcome; I will do whatever it takes to take control over that scales. It WILL NOT get the best of me!!
Do you hear that, Scales??
