Scale - a device used to measure mass.

The bathroom scale - a device designed to mentally torture humans every morning by getting them to stand on it and then showing them a number.


Of all the good indicators of health and fitness, we choose a number on a device that only measures total mass.

It doesn't measure how much of that mass is muscle, bone and organs vs. how much is fat (unless it’s a real fancy scale).

It doesn’t tell you your resting heart rate or blood pressure. It knows nothing about stress or hydration levels or how well you slept last night.

It doesn’t tell you your total cholesterol, much less how much of your cholesterol is HDL (good) vs. LDL (bad).


The scale is probably the single least informative indicator of your current state of health and fitness, yet every morning you shuffle to the bathroom and get on it buck naked because every ounce matters.


If this one-dimensional snapshot every morning determines whether you’re succeeding or failing at living a healthy, active life, then the scale is a FOE.


The scale is your FRIEND if it’s part of a multi-dimensional snapshot consisting of mood, energy levels, sleep quality, waist and hip measurements, how your clothes fit and most importantly, overall happiness.


Personally, I like the scale to be more of an acquaintance than a close friend. Someone that you are cool with, but only see at your friends kids birthday parties a few times a year.


Don't let the scale be your only measure of progress...Look in your email from a couple of days ago and do the self-evaluation I sent.

Keep Moving,

Coach Dom
