Maybe A Pose Will Help

Drop a heart if you hate the scale.

If I could drop a million hearts, I would. I HATE the scale; I know I talk about my hatred often. But, honestly, I don’t think I mention it enough because time after flipping time, people tell me weight goals and not fitness goals.

Fitness trumps weight any day!

Before football season started for my son, my husband was on a mission to have him gain 30 pounds. He put on 30 healthy pounds with top cuts of meat, protein, and lots of meal prep done by yours truly. We purchased a second refrigerator so we could store all of his healthy goodies. We became OBSESSED with weighing him. Cheers would erupt when he put on a few pounds. When he finally hit the 30-pound mark, my husband booked a dinner at Fogo de Chao Brazillian Steakhouse.

The waiters constantly bring our the best cuts of meat that are flavored for the Gods. All of their sides are cooked to perfection and leave you dreaming about them for days on in.

My son’s eyeballs popped out his head when he took his first bite of the juicy steak. And judging by the look on his face, I knew it was going to be a long while before he flipped over the card the restaurant gives you. One side is green, and it means give me MORE. The other side is red, which stands for STOP.

With jealous eyes, I glared at my son.

If only I could be rewarded for moving up two sizes or so in my clothes. Now that I can do it quite easily. All I have to do is skip my workouts for a few weeks and eat as though I belong on the D-Line (football). EASY!

Last night I told my son to step on the scale, and he smiled when the number read 260. So I thought, okay, maybe I’ll try this thing out as well. So I stepped on very lightly because I believe that helps: right? NO!

If you said no, then you’re right.

Next time I’ll step on lightly, and maybe just maybe, I’ll throw in a sassy pose and wait for my reading.

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. Girlfriend, I broke and threw that daggone scale out decades ago. 👣 As you noted, healthy is the key. Years ago when my aim was to lose a little weight while working out, I was so bummed because I was gaining weight and not losing. 😣 The trainer said that I was building muscle and that was fine. But when I looked at myself in the mirror, I was in no way overweight although I wore a size 12. BUT, my frame is different and a few people who I told what size I wore reminded me that Marilyn Monroe wore a 12. Like her, I didn’t look that size. It was all in what I selected to wear that was flattering to my size 12 frame. Hell, I was healthy, and that’s what mattered to me!

    So what were you talking about again??? 🤔 Oh yeah, that evil scale! 😱

    1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 The scale is the devil!!!

      Size 12 is a nice size. We are condition to think “oh nooooo double digits”😳 but size of clothes don’t mean a thing! My healthiest clients are not size 2’s! I train to put meat on those bones 💪🏽

      Yes you are right clothes matter and the right fit will have you all the way together ♥️

  2. I hate the scale and my weight is normal. Every time I go to the doctor I feel that I am being judged. Now I close my eyes and ask them not to tell me my weight. There are many aspects to being a healthy person and weight is just one. My cholesterol level was sky high until I changed my diet.
