If you have ever watched your weight, you cringe when the nurse directs you to stand on the scale before seeing the doctor. Like most women I am not happy with my body. This past week I have had miserable cold. I haven't exercised and have eaten anything that comforted me. My husband even cancelled our tickets for the symphony so that they wouldn't toss me out for my disruptive cough.
Getting to the point of all this as I justify what happened next, I hopped on the scale at the doctor's and watched as the scale registered a number that was six pounds more than what I saw at home last week. I was so floored I found myself making excuses to someone who really didn't care. You can imagine the inner dialogue I had with myself. It was not pretty.
Today, I braced myself and stepped on my scale and guess what! It was where it was last Friday. Moral of the story and a lesson to be learned is not to pay attention to that scale at the Doctor's Office!
