The stone is an informal unit of measure equal to 14 pounds avoirdupois. I was thinking of ways to make myself seem smaller so I thought about the stone. My weight is only 17 stones. Yes, it’s another weigh in day. I’m always thinking of ways to make the scale like me. If I thought, I was only 17 stone maybe I could see myself as lighter than I am. For those who use stones (I’ve seen some on blogs and message boards) you already know my 17 stones is not very good.
So much for using stones. I’d be better off using “tonnage.” Better yet, just stick to pounds. The scale knows all about pounds.
Weigh in day quotes:
“I used to weigh myself every day at a certain time of day. Then I would write down the number and measure my body fat. It wasn’t a healthy way to live.” Katherine Heigl
“A year from now, you’re gonna weigh more or less than what you do right now.” Phil McGraw
“I hope in my lifetime we can all continue to laugh at ourselves and not put down anyone for what they weigh.” Richard Simmons
“It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!” ― Steve Maraboli
“In two decades I’ve lost a total of 789 pounds. I should be hanging from a charm bracelet.” ― Erma Bombeck
“I’m going on a diet. (Crud, I know)
I am going to be cranky.
I am going to be irritable.
I am going to be moody and sad and mean.
And, yes, I am going to be hungry.
Please don’t feed me, even if I try to bite you.
Please don’t tease me, I may hurt you.
Please don’t try to encourage me, I may growl and snap at you.
Please don’t help me, I may blame you for everything aggravating in the known universe.
Please don’t be offended by my scowl, I cannot smile.
But most importantly, please keep your distance until this trial is over to prevent any unnecessary casualties.
Thank you for your understanding. ” ― Richelle E. Goodrich
