Don’t Be Afraid of the Scale!

Updated: Apr 2




I wish bathroom scales were never sold and didn't exist. Do you think any ancient civilization ever weighed themselves? I'll tell you a little story about when I was pregnant with my first child and I was all of 23 years old. I started to gain weight rather fast and I must have been at a doctors visit in the beginning every two weeks or so. Well, I was blowing up and we assume a lot of it was water and swelling. I became so panicky that I started to cry in front of my doctor. I was a young girl and wanted to wear bikinis after I gave birth and started to think I never will again. My family told me I looked beautiful as families often do. Well, my kind smart caring OBGYN told me I didn't need to get on a scale again because it upset me so much. He felt that me being happy and calm during my pregnancy was much more important than the scale. And I gave birth and 8 weeks later I was bikini material again and the scale came back to my bathroom and I became neurotic once more. So, then I decided to uninvite and say goodby to the scale for the rest of my life. I had three more children after that and I'm a no-scale girl. Now I have a tight pair of jeans I try on now and then just to make sure I'm ok. Im a grandmother now and my caring has diminished however I want to stay healthy, energetic, and ok in my skin. So if my grandchildren are jumping on the trampoline I'm right next to them.
