The Scale - Love it...Hate it...

Today I hate it!! Once again, I jumped on the scale, hopeful, that stupid little digital square would tell me what I want to know. And once again, it has not moved.

I have not had any weight loss for over a month. My food is in order, I'm exercising enough (my body hurts every day ~ so I know I'm giving it my all), I'm getting my water in, journaling, blah, blah, blah....

And the scale just blinks at me ~ "You're still 237"...Augh!

By God's grace, I have not given up. Prior to this year, I would have. I have allowed that scale to tell me who I am. Every day it says, "Yup, your fat, your still fat, you're a fatty!!"

But today, I'm not going to listen to that stupid scale. I don't believe what it says. I'm leaner, I'm stronger and I'm looking a lot better!!!

I have to remember there are other things that show me that I'm on the right track.

1.) People are noticing.
2.) My clothes are falling off.
3.) I like what I see in the mirror.
4.) I have less saggy fat hanging around.
5.) I have energy, more than I've had in years.
6.) I am stronger, healthier, happier, saner and excited!!

So sorry scale, NOT TODAY, I'm not going to listen to you. I'm going with what I know.

Does the scale tell you who you are? If so, don't listen to it!!



  1. Don't listen to that scale. Those are awesome things to notice on your list. Awesome!

  2. Scales suck... honest truth. I just asked mine the other day. :(
