Of course "Lo" means the scale, one, can't spell, and two, needs a battery change but it's one of those lithium types that I don't just have lying around, so I need to plan a trip to the store.
But as I pondered the read out, "Lo," I thought, wouldn't that be nice if the scale read:
- "Just Right"
- "You can do it!"
- "Way to go!"
- "You know you have what it takes!"
- "Get off you butt and MOVE IT!"
- "NO MORE EXCUSES!'
Except that we still need ways to gauge our health. For me, those ways are making a majority of my food choices from raw fruits and vegetables, juicing green stuff, eating lean meats and good fats, limiting my processed foods, avoiding my allergens and indulging once in a while rather than indulging all the time and having a veggie once in a while.
Anyway, the scale is broken, my kid is napping, I'm headed to the basement to hop on the treadmill, it's snowing outside, and I don't feel like going out to buy a new battery just to step on the scale to see what my weight is today. I know I am down from last Friday, maybe a pound or so, just b/c last Saturday my scale did work and it read 137.6. Whatever. For my body, I know what foods to avoid in order to keep my weight around a certain number...I just have to decide to do it or not. And this past week, I didn't make that choice...
