To Eat or Not to Eat, To Weigh or Not to Weigh

(A post in the form of JackSh*t Gettin Fit)

To eat, or not to eat: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the tummy to suffer
The hunger pains and calorie counting of outrageous proportions,
Or to take arms against the scale of troubles,
And by opposing it do we end the weighing? To eat: to weigh;

No more; and by weighing to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural pounds
That flesh is gaining, 'tis something
Devoutly to be wish'd. To eat, to weigh;

To not weigh: perchance to not weigh: ay, there's the rub;
For in that lack of weighing what goals may not come
When we have shuffled off the pounds needed,
to exercise ourselves daily: there's the respect
That makes us free from a number;

For who would bear the lack of weighing,
The societal norm, the "healthy" BMI,
The pangs of gaining weight, the size of our clothes,
The insolence of the scale and the fickleness
That patience of the flashing number,
When he (or she) himself (or herself) might his (or her) goal make
With so much work? who work so hard,

To grunt and sweat under a healthy life,
But that the dread of not losing any weight,
The undiscover'd country of skinny
No traveler hopes to return to Fatville, it puzzles the will
And makes us rather annoyed with the scale
Than why do we weigh?

The number does make cowards of us all;
And thus the scale makes us resolute
We are sicklied o'er with the thought of the number,
And enterprises of great work and labor
With this regard our efforts sometimes turn awry,
And lose the poundage with action.

Get Mean. Twisted Evil Make a Decision. Exclamation Choose Health! Cool
