An Abusive Relationship

January 5, 2011

I heard someone say the other day that they realized that they had a verbally abusive relationship with their scale. It wasn’t until that moment that I realized  I had a problem…. but mine goes even farther than verbal.

It happens almost every day…but always in private.

It starts with a few choice words as it doesn’t show me the numbers I want to see. My abuse use to end there . Now I am somehow convinced that it is lying to me and I want to prove that I am right.

I get off the scale and quickly get back on….in hopes that I might trick it into thinking I am someone else. When that doesn’t work I slowly rock backwards…digging my heels harder and harder into the scale thinking that just maybe if I evoke enough pain it will finally give me the number I so badly want to see.

This routine continues as I proceed to jump up and down on the scale…then in anger I leave the room.

I know I need to be nicer to my scale. It has worked hard all these years and I am going to try to be more understanding.

If that doesn’t work the sucker is headed for the dumpster…

    Have you tried “innocently” pulling up on the towel bar?
    Just to assist in your balance of course. 🙂
