I was at the gym the other night and I stepped on the scale only to realize a disappointment waving through me like a hurricane. I have been trying to exercise more and eat better for what?Only to find this disappointment.I then stood back and watched a few other people get on the scale. The first being a woman whom I thought looked terrific. She too expressed disappointment. Then two men approached the scale and they were pleasantly happy with the results of the reading on the scale.How can it be possible to have an inanimate object determine how we feel about ourselves?We just weighed our self-worth and that isn’t what scales are for.Scales are merely a tool to get feedback on where we are and where we may want to be as far as our weight is concerned. Using the scale wisely along with other measuring devices can be helpful and not detrimental if kept in perspective.Wise use of the scale depends on where you are in your weight change process. I say weight change because some people also are trying to gain weight where others want to lose weight.It is recommended at the early stages of weight change to weigh yourself daily.
