I use my scales to let me know how my weight management program is working toward making me healthier. To be honest, the more weight I lose, the more my skin sags and wrinkled my face, neck and hands appear. But with each lost pound and each new wrinkle, I feel better about myself. The wrinkles are much more lovely than my former smooth skin ever was. My scales do not judge me, nor do I judge myself by them. They are just another tool I can use to my advantage.

When I saw this quote I smiled and nodded through the reading of it. I love it. We are so much more than our appearance. We should be judged by our character, not by our weight.

Thanks for your frank comment, Brenda!

Very good. A measure of our relationship with gravity, nothing more!

Advertising also tells us that we are worth more if we use certain cosmetics, wear trendy clothes, drink the right soft drink, etc. Dissatisfaction is a powerful tool.

Really good message! Thumbs up People put too much emphasis on looks. Being the perfect size is just one aspect, then there's plastic surgery and all the other stuff MaryE mentioned people do! For what?

I know I'm not normal but I would be more apt to like someone who doesn't put too much emphasis on their looks. Those are the people with real yolk!! The guy wearing shorts and white socks with his sandals is my pick (Yes, I married him. Sorry ladies he's taken! Hilarious! ) over the guy in Versace loafers and a diamond laden pinkie ring. Someone who's all dressed up in their expensive clothes and whatever else might just be covering something up. Looks pretty on the outside, like a decorated empty shell with no yolk on the inside.

It would be great if people started looking to beautify their inside because there's just too much ugly going on in the world right now.

No yolk! I love that expression!

I will never forget my friends reactions when I started dating Bob. At only 28 years he was a big bellied, totally bald, man with no chin. They took one look at him and told me "You can do so much better then that!"

But he was intelligent, kind, gentle and loving...all the attributes that made him my dream man. I kept the man and found new friends!!! He definitely had yolk.

You guys are down to earth people. I like that.

But I have to be honest and say that my husband's handsome looks were what attracted me to him before we ever spoke a word to each other. He and I spent a couple of weeks eyeing each other on our college campus before we ever spoke. We had no classes together and no common friends, so he had to come up with some reason to approach me. So it was physical attraction that brought us together. That sounds superficial to me now, but we have been married for 50 years so I guess it was meant to be.

Nancy, it may have been physical attraction that brought you together, but, after that initial meeting, it had to be something much deeper that held you together. Not all good people are ugly and not all ugly people are good. The point is that it is the inner beauty that matters in the end. You looked past his exterior to find the goodness inside. Lovey dubby

That's wonderful, Nancy. I think we are all made to be attracted to someone's looks. Physical attraction is good. Not the same as being attracted to his shirt or shoes! Hilarious!

I think my husband is very handsome and as I recall, my heart started to race the first time I met him. Sometimes my knees would get weak. I hated it because I couldn't control my emotions around him. It's difficult to play hard to get when you're mush! Rolling on the floor laughing After all these years he would probably love to read this.

Christine, maybe your playing hard-to-get was the same as how my dad used to describe my parents' courtship.

"I chased her til she caught me!"
