To: My Scale

Dear Scale,

Thank you for all of your hard work, but your services are no longer needed at this time.  I appreciate your consistency and your truthfulness, but I have come to some very important conclusions.  I don't need you anymore.  You create numbers.  Numbers that do not rank value.  Numbers that do not determine beauty.  Numbers that do not determine my worth.  Numbers that no longer serve me.  Our love affair has been tumultuous, some days you were my best friend and other days my worst enemy.  But my new love affair is with myself.  I look in the mirror everyday.  I look strong, I look fit, I look healthy.  My focus is no longer on pleasing you, it is on pleasing me. 

Your new home will be in my closet.  You will be periodically called upon if my clothes no longer fit to assess the damage, but that is it. You will like it there!  I have some beautiful high heels that you can flirt with. 

Thanks again for your loyal self-esteem boosts and beat downs, but I can take it from here.

  1. I'm so with you on this one. It's so freakin hard to stop getting on that scale, though. Totally makes or breaks the day sometimes...and it shouldn't. I need a scale intervention!
