Conversation with My Scale

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Scale: I can make your day or I can make you give up on losing weight.

Me: Have you noticed that I have stopped stepping on you every day?

Scale: Yes, I have. Why did you stop? I enjoyed your morning visits. Love you being disappointed with the number I showed you and then you would get depressed and eat everything in sight because you felt it was useless trying to lose weight and be healthy.

Me: You sure knew how to push the right buttons and show the gains but I have realized something.

Scale: What is that?

Me: Your numbers are just that. NUMBERS! You do not show the inches that I have lost and self esteem I have gained.

Scale: Now why would I want to do that? Make you happy???? Not my job!!!

Me: No it isn't your job to make me happy. It is up to me to make me happy and to succeed in my weight loss journey. So from now on, I will only step on you on Saturdays and work hard all week to have you show me a loss no matter how small.

Scale: That doesn't make me happy seeing you only on Saturdays from now on.

Me: But it makes me happy and that is what counts. See you Saturday!
