The Scale-friend or foe?
Do you have a scale? I don't. I think about getting one quite often, and whenever I am somewhere that I see one, I hop right on it, only to frown, or act shocked and appauled, as if someone shoved endless amounts of sweets and pasta down my throat when I was unconsious. How dare they. When your vertically challenged, a 3-5lb weight gain can be significant. So let's see....
Pro-Making sure your a healthy weight to ensure a healthy body.
Con-Stressing out about "The Number".
Pro-A way to keep yourself "In Check".
Con-Getting on the scale everytime you eat a hershey kiss, or getting on everytime you have a bottled water instead of a soda, and hope for results.
Pro-House scales are always easy on you.
Con-The scale at the doctors office always tell the bitter truth, and it's always bad news.
I feel that if I had a scale, it would bring nothing but termoil to my life. I will probably stick with not having one. My method is more simplistic, and less precise. Make sure you wear something fitted on a regular basis. It's when your in your wide-bottomed sweats, cotton capris, or hippie skirts that you lose sight of where you're at. Then you have an urge to throw your jeans on, and BAM!-you need a wire hanger to pull your zipper up. And you know how Mommie Dearest feels about wire hangers.....
