The day of gratitude is over. I ate like there would be no tomorrow. Ugh! I have to face the scale. After all, I got to the weight I am because I hated being a “number”. I wanted to be more than digits…I wanted to feel value and love myself. Now I laugh because I have a scale that doesn’t show my weight.
That’s right. Ask me, “How much do you weigh?”
My reply will be, “I don’t know!”
It will be the truth despite my weighing myself every morning.
The Zero Scale. It’s the most amazing scale.
I remember a weight loss group. At first, the numbers on the scale decreased rapidly. After about three months, it slowed down. It became frustrating. I spoke up, “Why does our self-worth center around a number? A scale? Why can’t we like ourselves for who we are?”
I spoke out of frustration, but really wouldn’t the world be a better place if we liked ourselves for how we felt rather than how we looked? If others saw us for who we were instead of judging us by our weight?
Often I had told my mom that I did better before I started to try and lose weight. Food journaling leaves me consumed with food. I have to write it down, but all I think about is food if you think even for a minute that those thoughts become an obsession and that putting lead to paper stifles that you’re bonkers! No offense, but seriously!
Here’s another thing… every time I lose ten pounds, my body rearranges itself. If I gain back five pounds, it comes back somewhere else. I weigh exactly what I weighed eight years ago. The difference? I’ve gained and lost the same 20 pounds over and over, and now, while I weigh the same, I have a different body. I gotta tell you, I liked the original one far better.
The Zero Scale is going to change the thinking process of people everywhere! It doesn’t show your weight. It shows only the changes in your weight. No more terror–the Zero Scale will let you know if you’re gaining, losing, or maintaining. No number to be judged by.
It’s also intelligent. It tracks changes over time, so you know how your weight has changed since that beautiful day you and it met.
Since I am a pro-dieter, I prefer scales that show any weight loss…the Zero Scale measures in tenths of a pound. It’s a beautiful thing. Achievement can be seen far more readily.
With the ability to program four users, it’s perfect for a family, and if someone gets sneaky or forgets to set it to their own profile, it’s easy to re-calibrate it back to Moi!
The Zero Scale is like hindsight. It shows where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. It allows focus. It doesn’t intimidate.

How do you prefer to weigh…seeing the “Big Number” or looking at the “history”?*I received the Zero Scale through Family Review Network. The opinions, where expressed, are my own and were in no way influenced by the sponsor. Other experiences may vary.
