Ode to the Scale

This is how I am feeling today....

Ode to the Scale

I did everything right, I measured, I weighed,
I exercised daily, all food was homemade,
I had enough sleep, I drank lots of water,
I watched every calorie, I never did falter,
I stepped on the scale, I was so excited,
To see it go down, I’ll be so delighted,
I was shocked and surprised, I didn’t lose a bit,
The number went up, I couldn’t believe it!

What’s going on, I did everything right,
The scale must be broke, I gave the good fight,
What else can I do, how hard can I push,
Maybe next week I’ll see that big whoosh!

The journey continues, I’ll start a new day,
I guess I’ll continue to measure and weigh,
I don’t know what happened, I’m mad as can be,
But I did a good job so the scale can bite me!

    I love this - it's exactly how I felt this morning! Perhaps that scale should take some time off while we kick some more booty?

    I know what you mean, I agree completely
    I too am obsessed with the numbers I see
    Lower means for a happier day
    While higher makes me completely cray-cray.
    Keep doing it right and turn the other cheek
    Cause you'll kick that scale's A** this time next week!

    I just read your poem out loud - with feeling - to my husband... it's great! Thanks for the smiles!! (And I relate. All scales can be thrown off a bridge today, as far as I'm concerned.)
