What does the scale mean?

Not sure of the source, but the message is powerful.

    I have parted ways with my scale awhile ago. I didn't like the fact that I could gain or lose depending where it was placed in my apartment. More importantly I did not want it to have the power to determine how I felt about myself on a given day. So now I know how I am doing according to how my clothing fit and the non-elicited comments from my friends. I have accepted that losing my weight is going to take some time and it is just one of many things in my day that define who I am and what is important to me.
Thanks for the posting this blog, Celia. I am certain it resonates with many of us here at Spark. emoticon

    That is so true! And something we all tend to forget too often when we start on a weight loss journey. Important reminder for us all, thank you. CJ

    So very true! I am not weighing for one month. Giving myself time to just work on being consistent and not worrying about the little ups and downs.

  Scale weight is just that....& it doesn't give one the full truth that is needed to get & stay healthy. In fact, it can be a hindrance. One needs to know the lean body mass, body fat percentage & the scale weight as it all relates to height & exercise level. Not having this information nearly caused my death a few decades ago. Now, I know better.....& I'm still alive.

    Yes, we're more than a number on a scale and more than the shape of our body parts.
