Here is my thought about the weighing scale . First of all, I do not care about it, second, I have seen how crazy and superstitious it gets when someone cares much about it. It can slowly consume you mentally. It can stalk your days and nights and bring about unnecessary weight obsessions that should have been avoided in the first place. Sure, you can step on the weighing scale once in a while but you know it is a problem when you weigh yourself daily or weekly or monthly, I mean what are you looking to see? Nothing happens in a week that’s for sure don’t even get me started on how nothing happens overnight.
In my opinion , in as much as the weighing scale’s job is to remind you of your weight gains and weight loss targets , it also strips you away from Life. The ability to eat that cake at your best friend’s Birthday party or even go on a date and sip on that glass of wine. Don’t get me wrong I am not telling you to go gallop a whole bottle of Chardonnay or eat a whole box of Pizza or devour half the cake by yourself, all I am saying is an obsession with the weighing scale may affect your life negatively if you are not careful. You may be too engulfed in the thoughts of what the weighing scale said about you yesterday and forget that it would mean the world to your friend if you just picked that piece of cake at her birthday.
or it would put a smile on your spouse’s face if he was not toasting to a glass of wine at the dinner table by himself because the weighing scale said you need to cut down on stuff.
or it would mean a lot when your friends and Family can still enjoy that occasional pizza and have a laugh with you because you were born to do that
Come on , as long as majority of of the time you are eating clean and working out , cut yourself and the people around you some slack . You do not need a freaking weighing scale to determine your next moves. Life is all about moderation and wisdom.So shove that weighing scale down the gutter, live a healthy life wisely
