My Truth Speaker Spoke

Saturday, September 08, 2012

I'd avoided her for weeks. For a while I didn't see her, hidden away so it was easy for me to forget about her. I had a feeling I knew what she'd say when I saw her again, and I just wasn't ready for that. Not that she's mean or anything, but she's honest with me. Sigh.

Then I saw her again. I just wasn't ready to communicate though, feeling pretty fragile from moving, unpacking, learning a new house and area. So I continued to avoid her, although I could see her out of the corner of my eye every day. Then an emotional switch flipped yesterday and I felt it was time...

I got on the scale and she told me the truth. Doggone, why does she always do that?! emoticon Well, now we're working together again. I don't like what I saw this morning, but it gives me knowledge and courage to face the truth and emoticon

And I'm going to do just that. I'm thankful for my bathroom truth speaker! emoticon

    Hey! I could have written this! I avoided "her" two months after the move! Funny thing about the scale is it can point out where we're at but it can't do anything to empower us. That's where we have each other! I'm root'n for you! I KNOW you will do whatever it takes.

    Yes, that SCALE. She kind of rules your life.

    Don't worry she'll come around and be nice to you soon!

    It can be our enemy as well as our friend. Sometimes, when it doesn't work in our favor, the tape measure is a good way to measure as well and is not so discouraging as muscle weights more than fat! The truth will come out no matter what we do. When we dance to the music, we have to pay the piper! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
