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??

    The scale does seem to be our enemy, Arlene. But we will persevere and one day we will be able to tell the scale; weare overcomers and WE won the battle. Good post. Jane emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You know what Arlene? I was doing the same thing that you are doing! I became obcessed with my sacles!
    I read something on Spark one day that made alot of sense.
    It said that if you are doing everything that you are suppose to do and you know that you have done everything right, then don't worry about what the scales say.
    So, I thought to myself, what am I suppose to do then?
    The article said take measurements of your Bust, Waist, and Hips.
    Don't weigh on the scale for awhile, instead take measurements, and take a
    trip to your closet.
    I did what it said, and I had lost in my hips, and I tried on a pair of pants that were
    too tight and they were a little looser.
    So, I didn't worry about the scales anymore!
    No matter what the scales say, I go measure. Try it, you just might be surprised!

    Arlene, I think our scales must be a set of stubborn siblings, LOL!

    Love that quote you mentioned. Here's another one that is similar: "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!" How very true!

    You have a great attitude! All your hard work is paying off, even if the scales aren't moving as quickly as you'd hoped. Mine aren't either, but according to my trusty tape measure, I'm losing inches! So remember, as long as your clothes are fitting better, you're making progress!
