My New Talking Scales

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I have a couple sets of talking scales around the house. The first one I got was the Wii Fit Plus, which never fails to inform me "That's Obese!" when I step on it. The new ones however just say my weight without any further insult.

The new scales have had me thinking though. Many of us have scales that talk...we just don't know it. Many of us allow that number on the scale to tell us our self worth or even our mood for that day. One of the things I learned very early on in this journey is that that number is only that-a number. It doesn't tell me who I am. It is only a measure of my progress.

A friend of mine sent me a picture that I want to share...

Remember this...and that alone is a success.

    It is very true...weight is on the outside and is only an asessment of appearance. While character and personality are traits we value for a lifetime!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I hate my scales and would really get depressed if it told me I was obese. I ought to make a sign for mine. emoticon

    Brilliant. Next time I step on the scale and don't like what I see, I am going to remember this photo.
