Pssst! Hey, you. Yes, you. Are you trying to lose some weight? Yeah? Come closer so I can offer you a word of advice. Don’t trust Scale! She, yes, she, is full of drama and, worst of all, she is a liar. Yes, she is! Ok, maybe that was a little harsh. Let’s just say she doesn’t tell the whole truth, she is deceitful and she is definitely full of drama.
I’m not talking behind her back. This isn’t something she doesn’t already know about herself. I’m just trying to help you out.
Let me break it down for you. The part that is the truth is that you stepped on the scale and you weigh _____ but what does that mean exactly? Especially when you’ve been watching your intake and working out? What is the composition of that number she is so boldly displaying. How much is muscle? How much is
? How much is fat or water? Has anything shifted? Did you lose any fat from your cardio workout? Did you gain any muscle from lifting this week? When you reduced your sodium intake did she acknowledge your change? Has she noticed the inches lost on your waist? The fact that you can now fit in a new size dress or shirt? That you can run longer and stronger. The new bra and panty set you can now fit? That you can press more weight and more reps than last week? Must I continue? She hasn’t said anything about any of that has she? bone
Then, after all your hard work, she’s got the nerve to project drama. After stepping on her you can feel like you are having an anxiety attack. She will have you thinking nothing has changed. What’s it all for? Why bother exercising, counting calories, reducing fat intake, watching portion control or whatever it is that you do. Making you feel overwhelmed, incapable, wanting to give up, worthless, defeated, not good enough and worst of all, She will have you wanting to eat to comfort the pain.
Trust me, I know. She had me all messed up, panicky and stuff. I was jumping on her multiple times a day. Sometimes she had something good to say, but more often than not it wasn’t good. I would be upset and the drama would start all over again. She
! Do you know that after all this time she still tries to lure me back. She can be like a drug. Don’t, I repeat, don’t let her control you. is bold too
How did I get free? I had to break the addiction and loosen that grip she had over me. The truth is you have to set and evaluate your own parameters of success and not look for it outside yourself. I look for NSVs (non-scale victories). Like dropping a size, fitting into an article of clothing you couldn’t fit before. Jumping higher and doing something I couldn’t do before. Other measurements like inches lost or BMI (Body Mass Index) which gives you the breakdown and composition of Scale’s number, are ways to better evaluate your success. Don’t let her control you.
I could go on and on about Scale’s antics, but I think you’ve heard enough. I know you thought I was gossiping about Scale but this is not some hearsay off the street. This is first hand experience. That was how Scale handled me and did me wrong.
I’m sure this is one piece of gossip you were glad to hear. Now go tell someone else!
