So, I got on the scale this morning and surprisngly, I've lost 20 pounds. Woo hoo! As I stood there gaping at the number on the scale, I got so excited. Of course, I stood there for a long time, savoring that number. Why, you ask? Well, because that 20 pound loss was after 3 days. I got off the scale and watched it reset itself, with that message at the end . . . ERROR. Well no shit, Sherlock. Then I got back on it. A 3 pound weight loss. I'll take it.
Why do we get so hung up on a number on the scale? I mean seriously, yes, I need to lose weight for my health, but I'm in better shape now than I was 10 years ago. My clothes are fitting better, and I feel better. Still, it's not enough to make me stop obsessing over that damn number.
So today's motto is . . . It's Just A Number . . . play the lotto
