Scales Aren’t Scary

Someone standing on a scale

You find yourself in your doctor’s office having a glaring contest with your scale’s ugly uncle. Your palms get sweaty, or maybe your heart rate picks up. Or perhaps you close your eyes and pray that the good doc doesn’t tell you how much you weigh.

You hate scales. ALL. OF. THEM.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Your scale isn’t a drill sergeant; it’s your healthy weight compass. As long as you’re heading in the right direction, keep doing what you’re doing. And when you find that you’re going the wrong way, get back to the basics:

  1. Eat more Fiber
  2. Drink more water
  3. Stop eating when you’re no longer hungry

Use your scale regularly. Leave the dread and fear to spiders. After all, they’re mobile while you sleep. Your scale is not.
