I wake up to the joy of the sun shining out the window! The birds are singing in the trees! The day is finally not a wet, windy and stormy summer day. There could not be a much better day than this.
I get in the bathroom and the first thing I see is - The Scale.
I hear it whisper to me, beckoning me. "just put one foot on. Trust me!"
I glance at the scale, knowing that it has not been my friend, as of late. but, I have been working hard. I have been tracking, I have been walking, I have been drinking my water. Maybe, just maybe, today is the day.
I put one foot on the scale, the scale turns on, sending dashes across the screen. I put the second foot on. I hold my breath, don't know why, I just do. I look at the zero's crossing the screen like little pac-men. And then I see it.
I see the *&@% numbers that I have been dreading to see. I have not broken my plateau.
The Scale, the numbers reflect back at me. Laughing, taunting, telling me I failed.
I see the sun shining, I hear the birds chirping, I know the rain is raining on someone else today. I decide that I will not allow The Scale to decide my fate today.
Today Scale, you win! Tomorrow, I will conquer you!
