The Scale and How to Own It - and not let it own you.

Ladies and Gents The scale really messes with your mind sometimes ...One day it boosts your motivation and the next day it will destroys it.....

What will happen when we get to goal, will the scale bring us a reward then? How bout even when we are below our goal (and it will happen) will the scale give us a prize and, put our name in lights!!!?

Will the scale seem so powerful in our mind when we are at goal or will the goal WE achieved be our focus then and the scale will simply fade into the back ground finally like it should be.....

For most people, the scale is the task master telling us whether it approves of us that day or whether it disapproves of us...and perhaps even worst it tells us what the rest of the world will think about us today....

How much weight did you loose.....ummmm let me ask my scale....

How did the tool to collect data for us get sooooooo much power from us that it will actually determine how we feel and how we act each day...

If you have an up and down relationship with your bathroom scale, I'm right there with you and I feel it just as strongly.....We should have even/positive emotions everyday and our actions should stay consistent with someone moving in the direction of his/her goals. In fact having the ability to sustain even/ positive emotions is key to successful weight loss.

The scale needs to be demoted and WE need a promotion....I'm all for giving us a raise! Let the scale become that thing that works for us again not the other way around:)

I'm gonna tell my scale(with a smile): "HEY I'm the boss of you and you will be my servant....Your job is to provide me with some daily/weekly data as I need it and as I move myself to my goal, "
