Hey guess what? Have you ever had anyone ask you that question out of the blue and you have absolutely no idea what to guess? If not, you just have. Well, anyway, yes today is weigh-in day. That means we have to step on the scale and check our progress. Yes folks, you naysayers of the scale, it’s a great way to check your weight loss progress. If you have a scale like mine it will tell you to the tenth of a pound. So you can see if you lost a little or a lot or gads—none or double gads—gained.
Right now I’m in North Myrtle Beach. I’m actually writing this blog earlier so don’t know how the scale is going to treat me. I will however, have my scale with me and won’t allow a week to go by without weighing in.
We are in North Myrtle Beach celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. Even though that seems like a long period of time, it has gone by so fast. In fact, tomorrow is our anniversary day. Yes, we are going to eat out. But we are going to eat on plan. We already know where we can do that. That’s planning. In fact, we had the whole week planned. We have lost on this diet and we aren’t going to compromise the plan. If you’ve been dieting long, you know how hard it is to lose and how easy it is to gain. So we aren’t going to gain on the trip.
Did you know that a physician once placed dying patients upon a scale in order to measure the weight of the human soul? His conclusion was that the soul weighed 21 grams. That’s the weight loss at death according to Dr. MacDougall in 1911. Lots of uses for the scale.
