My Enemy – My Scale
When I began my journey to lose my unwanted weight, using quantum physics, in 1996 my scale was my enemy. Perhaps you can relate. I hated my scale – because every time I got on it, it told me something that didn’t feel good!
In fact, my whole “fat” life, my scale almost always told me what I didn’t want to see. Even when I was dieting. Even when I was working out. Oh sure, there were times where I lost some weight and I was happy. But, always, given enough time, that scale would once again show me numbers that confirmed that I weighed more than I wanted!
I know what you’re thinking: “Greg, that scale didn’t make you overweight. That’s not even logical. The scale was only reflecting the reality that you were overweight; the scale was only the tool that told you how things really were.”
Why Your Scale May Not Be the Friend and Ally You Think It Is
And I’ll counter with these answers.
First of all, we now know know that our universe is not logical in how it functions. So, when it comes to losing unwanted weight, quantum physics says you can all but throw logic out the window. After all, what has counting on logic gotten you thus far (except more unwanted weight)!
Second, we now know that there is no such thing as objective reality. Reality is subjective; quantum physics teaches us that each observer sees her own universe. Reality does not await our discovery in a pre-determined state. We create our reality by putting our observations (and, more importantly, our expectations) on the quantum field of sub-atomic particles.
Third, we now know that our outer world, what we see, is nothing more than a reflection of our inner world, how we feel. Quantum physics teaches us that how we feel always trumps what we do; even the “best” weight-loss actions will not counter how we feel about those actions (and ourselves).
Everything you just read, by the way, is pure, scientific fact. Not pie-in-the-sky, gee-wouldn’t-it-be-nice-if-it-were-true philosophy.
So, given those scientific facts, think about what a scale might really represent for you. If you feel overweight, if you believe you’re overweight, if you know you’re overweight, if “overweight” is your state of being, I can guarantee you that all a scale will ever do is confirm those things for you.
Your Scale, Literally, Reflects What You Expect It to Reflect
And, of course, once a scale confirms those things for you, your habitual thoughts and beliefs of “I am overweight” are only solidified. Which has the unfortunate side effect of making those habitual patterns of thought and belief all the more real for you. They become an even greater part of your individual universe – your individual reality.
What’s the antidote? Throw your scale away if you have similar feelings about it to what I did. Banish your scale as part of your weight-loss routine. Instead, rely on how you feel and change the stories you’re telling yourself about your eating, your exercise, and your body. By telling the best possible, believable stories you can.
Set yourself free. Give yourself a chance to believe and see a new reality. Feel and see the difference it makes for your weight loss.
