Conversation with My Scale
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
Scale: I can make your day or I can make you give up on losing weight.
Me: Have you noticed that I have stopped stepping on you every day?
Scale: Yes, I have. Why did you stop? I enjoyed your morning visits. Love you being disappointed with the number I showed you and then you would get depressed and eat everything in sight because you felt it was useless trying to lose weight and be healthy.
Me: You sure knew how to push the right buttons and show the gains but I have realized something.
Scale: What is that?
Me: Your numbers are just that. NUMBERS! You do not show the inches that I have lost and self esteem I have gained.
Scale: Now why would I want to do that? Make you happy???? Not my job!!!
Me: No it isn't your job to make me happy. It is up to me to make me happy and to succeed in my weight loss journey. So from now on, I will only step on you on Saturdays and work hard all week to have you show me a loss no matter how small.
Scale: That doesn't make me happy seeing you only on Saturdays from now on.
Me: But it makes me happy and that is what counts. See you Saturday!
