My relationship with you, dear Scale. {A letter.}

Dear Scale,

I'm sure you've noticed some distance between us. Don't act like you don't.
We used to be so close, I know. Some might say slightly obsessed.
But you know what, Scale, I just felt like we didn't have a very healthy relationship anymore.
So up and down with us, you know?
Some days, I would love you so much.
Other days, I would want to throw you in the trash can and never see your face again!
But most days, I was just convinced you were a liar.
Now, I think we can all agree that that type of relationship is frowned upon.

So you see, Scale, I think that it was just necessary that I took some time apart from you.
And you know what?
Not seeing you for about 2 weeks has made me really happy.
At first, I was nervous and a little anxious to see you again.
But then you know what happened?
I stopped worrying.
I stopped fretting.
I stopped analyzing.

I must tell you, it's been very freeing and it's been very enjoyable!
I don't have to feel guilty, like I used to, knowing I was going to see you the next morning after eating a scrumptious somethin' or other.
Now, I just enjoy that scrumptious somethin' or other and carry on with my life.

Dear Scale, I see you've been collecting some dust since I've been away.
And maybe, one day, I'll dust you off and we can hang out again. In fact, I'm sure of it.
But right now, I've met someone else.
He's called: "Shut Up and Eat That Pizza If You Want To, Weirdo! Just Don't Go Crazy and Eat The Whole Dang Thing!"
He's pretty cool and I kind of like him a lot.

So anyway, Scale, I just thought I'd let you know what's going on.

Stay cool.

Hug hug, kiss kiss, hug hug, big kiss, little hug, kiss kiss, little kiss.
{Nacho Libre, anyone?}



  1. winner winner chicken dinner!

    my scale and i are estranged atm.


  2. Happy separation!

    I haven't lived with a scale in over 10 years and not sure I ever will again.

  3. Maybe you can bring him a crunchy toast...

  4. Ah the scale ... Love, hate relationship. Mostly hate.

  5. a scale i don't even know what that is. i think i had one once until i kicked him out. he was a freeloader always putting me down!!!

  6. I love that you cheated on your scale with V Dizzle. He's probably easier to talk to anyways...

  7. In all reality, who cares what the scale says as long as you think you look good, that's all that matters! :) I don't own a scale and I'm too afraid too! Lol

  8. I broke up with my scale as well.

    I think that you and "Shut Up and Eat That Pizza If You Want To, Weirdo! Just Don't Go Crazy and Eat The Whole Dang Thing!" will be really happy together!

  9. i have that exact scale! ha. i wish i worried more about how my clothes fit, less about the scale. i may need to ban mine too!

  13. You're kind of perfectly describing my relationship with the scale right now. We're taking some time apart as well, and it's been GREAT.

  14. LOL omg did you really quote Nacho Libre?! I LOVE you. Chancho, I need to borrow some stretchy paaants. And the scale and I are needing to get friendly, I've avoided him for like YEARS. It's time.


  15. being separated for a while can help a relationship ;) I have been separated from my Mr.Scale for a really, really long time. It's super cool.


  16. But what if you are the the prettiest asian ever and need not look at a scale ever. Ever.
