The Scale is NOT your Friend!!
Tuesday, November 03, 2009
It sits there harmless on the bedroom or bathroom. It is white or black or fashionably nickel plated. It has an arm that springs into action when activated or a digital display. Don't be fooled it is mechanized evil. It has the ability to evoke horrible feelings of dread or excitement. It can reek havoc with your emotions from superior highs to all mighty lows. It should be avoided. No matter how loose the cloths feel, how good the nutrition and exercise were for the week, it can crush you in two steps. Better to just go with the mirror and the reaction of friends and family to the "wow what are you doing?, You look great". That is the only reasurrance that is really required. The scale on the other hand is not your friend.
