In a recent interview with People magazine, Janet Jackson said that she never weighs herself.
“I don’t know how much weight I’ve lost, only because I stay away from the scale,” she said. “I don’t think [stepping on the scale] is healthy. You’re setting yourself up to fail.”
I am actually in the same boat. I haven’t owned a scale since high school, because I know that if I start weighing myself with any regularity I will become unhealthily obsessed with the number I see and start worrying about everything I eat. As far as I’m concerned, if I’m eating well, exercising, and my pants fit, I’m doing fine.
But some people can’t exist without knowing those numbers, and I wonder where you, my Gloss reading friends, fall.
