I have fancy bathroom scale which for some unknown reason has taken residence in my kitchen. It weighs in 1/4 lbs which is good if the lbs are going down but when they start creeping back up again can be depressing. However that 1/4 lb could be last nights dinner and by tomorrow it would be gone again.
I don’t remember there being a bathroom scale in the house when i was at home. If you wanted to weigh yourself you had to go to the Chemist store. These days we are obsessed about how fat/thin/big/small/dress size we are. Yes has a nation we are getting bigger because we eat too much of the wrong things namely sugar and fat. The thing is who says who is fat and who isn’t? Some one in a room somewhere that’s who.
It is time for me to throw away the scale. Okay i may not throw them away but put them away. I know what size i am, I am me sized. Because i find it difficult to walk long distances i find myself sitting and people watching and unless i happen to see identical twins every person that walks pass me is different. Some are taller, some are smaller then me, and as for size, we come all sizes and shapes.
We have been conditioned by people who don’t even know us to be what they think we should be. Mostly we are influenced by media, by advertising and by good sales people who tell us what we should and shouldn’t do or not do. We need to find out who we are and embrace our differences, accept them. I believe that until we know who we are and where we would like to be we will always walk someone else’s path and not our own.
