So you woke up this morning, made a protein breakfast (even though you felt like eating a pizza) and you tried to walk as much as possible. Then, you climbed those stairs, got to work all sweaty and ate another protein meal (even though you felt like eating a pizza). After a week of basically doing things you really don’t like, you certainly thought that you lost at least three pounds. You took the scale ceremonially, placed it in the center of the bathroom, and you stepped on your throne. Gosh, you already feel like a winner, and who knows, maybe it was four pounds (those steps were really big). WHAT!? You lost only one pound? The scale is obviously not telling the truth! Here are the things that your scale should tell you instead.
1.”Thank you for not eating pizza”. Surely, this is the first thing that every scale should tell you. Pizza is also a symbol for all that wonderful junk food out there you have been avoiding because you want to lose weight. That’s also why you go hungry when you go to bed each night and you refuse to go out for a drink (some drinks have the same amount of calories as pizza!). So a little thank you from your scale would be nice from time to time.
