The Scale.

It's a demonic device created to torture women (men, too).

I think they should be banned. They do not do anyone any good hanging out in the one room we cannot avoid...the bathroom. I petition for it to be thrown out. I've not weighed in a few months. I know I've lost weight. My droopy underwear is evidence.

Our focus should be in what we put inside out body. The scale does NOT tell us whether we are healthy or not. We need to channel our obsessive (dieting) nature into healthy eating habits, not how many pounds that was lost/gained.

I dare you to lock away that evil device. I double dare you not to touch it for 30 days. Who is up for the challenge?


  1. :sighs:

    I will try.

    The scale is part of my obsession. It's going to be very, very hard. Then again, I wonder how long I can move it out of the bathroom before my husband notices it's gone. I've wanted to throw it away for a while, but he insists that he wants it to be available.

    But, you're right. I'll wake up feeling great, and if the scale doesn't tell me what I want to hear, something changes. I need to stay away from the damned thing.

  2. I agree, I don't think it's necessary to weigh yourself very often. I use the way my clothes fit and how I feel as a guideline to how I'm doing. When I was actively losing weight, I weighed myself once a week. Now that I'm maintaining that weight loss (2 years and counting!) I rarely step on it.
