A Letter to the Devil

Dear Scale,

I am writing this letter to let you know that I hate you. I think we should break up. I don't like your honesty. Can't you sugarcoat things for me? I mean what's a few pounds less once in awhile? We have talked about this before...but NO, you continue to show me what I don't want to see.
I know we have been together for awhile. This might be hard on you. Deal with it buddy. I don't want to have to go all Jerry Springer on your ass. I am sorry you have had to live right by the litterbox. But space is limited.
Perhaps we can get together on the moon. Where you will show me the numbers I long to see.

Until then,

Your ex-friend,


P.S. Um....okay, so you know I am not getting rid of you. But, Oprah said we need to share our feelings with each other.

  1. LOL... this post REALLY reminds me of Jen Lancaster. Especially her diet/weight chronicles in "Such a Pretty Fat."

    I think one time I got mad at the scale and tore off all my clothes in the middle of the afternoon and weighed myself again and yelled "Liar!" at it. This was only a couple years ago too, not when I was younger, which makes it even funnier to me.
