Smash Your Scale Contest

BigBodyBeautifuls! My darling friend, Nicole at Veggiecakes, along with Bob’s Red Mill, invites us to smash our scales, take a snap of the damage, and enter to win great prizes!


What a fun and easy way to celebrate health instead of a number, to cleanse ourselves of weight obsession, and learn to love who we are now. Let’s make one of our New Year’s resolutions a vow to smash the scale!

Hurry, the contest ends on Jan 31. For details, visit: Scale Smash Holiday Cleanse.

    Now I wish I had a scale to smash! I haven’t owned one for years because I became too obsessed by the numbers! When I go to the doctor I make the nurse promise not to say the number out loud. 🙂

      HAhahaa! My husband bought a scale some years back and I was like “Oh, Nooooo…get that thing out of here!” But, it’s actually fine. I got over it. I weigh myself sometimes and it’s always within 10 pounds of my magic number. I’ve gotten so comfortable with it all that when they weigh me at the doctor’s, I always yell “Whooohooo, I got the high score!” The chicks there always crack up at that.

      The number means nothing at all. It’s all about how we feel. And, if it takes not owning a scale to get past the obsession, or having the nurses not tell you the number so you can keep from spiraling, then that’s the best and right thing to do. You know what you need, my love. I honor your process completely.

      Oh, I read your blog post from today and need to get over there to comment on it. I can’t wait to share my thoughts. But, I’ll preface it by saying: YOU ARE MY IDOL!! And, I love you!

    Happy New Year Darlin’ Just finished reading both this and your Christmas Balls post. Six divorces between 2 parents? My head spun. But such is life? My own childhood was fodder for a Lifetime Network Movie. Looking forward to sharing lots of posts in 2014. We’re both having a wonderful year.

      Frances-LOVE!!! Thanks for stopping by, sweetie. Yes, sigh. Both parents married three times and there were numerous other pairings from my mom’s side of reality. It was quite exhausting, but this upbringing taught me to be tough and self-reliant. So, it all worked out. I would LOVE to know more about your “Lifetime Network Movie” of a childhood and, like you, look forward to a year full of interesting posts, great fun, and connection. I just love ya, sis. XOXO

        Hahahaha! My book of poetry was published in 1998. It’s called “Breaking the Sacred” and was put out by a small press in Michigan, Angelflesh Press. Sadly, the editor of the press never got an ISBN number for the book, liked he promised, so it’s all but impossible to find. I have only five copies left. We did an imprint of 1000 copies and the rest are lost to time. But, yeah, my past has been fodder for lots and lots of writing until I got bored with my story and its negativity. I’m a whole new shiny fish now and rarely look back there. 🙂 Love you, sis!

        You got it, babe. But, I’ll do you one better. Send me an email (liz[at]lizcasey[dot]com) and I’ll send you an electronic version in PDF format. XOXO

      Hi, LB-Baby!! Happy New Year to you, too, my biker-babe friend. How were your holidays? Did Santa bring you a new bike? Are you coming out here soon? 🙂 Stay warm in all those freezing temps, my sister and know that you always have a place in the sun over here. Much love to you!

      hobo hippie (Ana), Thank you so much for the kind words, friend and for the likes on some of my posts. Would love to have you as a follower.

      By the way, I used to read Cokefish. I even submitted a poem or two to Aplha Beat Press waaaaay back in my poetry days in the early to mid 90s. I’m not a Beat poet so I was rejected, but I don’t hold it against you. It was the right decision. 🙂 Anyway, I loved your poetry rags so much. My pen name was Elizabeth Florio back then; I was widely published in lots of rags all over the place and had such a blast. Those were good, productive days for me.

      So, your blogs are way cool! Am having the best time exploring your spaces. The art is amazing. Keep it going, sis. I’m loving what you’re vibin’. XOXO

      LOL! Such and editor thing to do. I love it, sis. I have that affliction, too. I’m a professional writer and editor: technical, copy, and creative. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t read the newspaper anymore and am tempted to whip out a red Sharpie and correct advertisements on bus benches, etc. I read a book and it comes away all marked up. I have eased up in recent years, though, because I simply don’t have the energy for it that I used to. Hugs to you, my darling editor-sister.

        I feel better now Thanks! I have suddenly developed a problem with typing- I keep having to retype everything- it takes twice as long- it’s a long story but I think I know why- thanks for the hugs same back to you-have a good night-hobo

        Who do you write for- if I may ask? my husband who died 3 years ago and I were publishers of a “beat” press “Alpha Beat Press” we had some underground magazines and published poetry books too. I miss that but now I blog and really love it- hobo

        Hi, Hobo Hippie. I’m a 16-year Sr. Technical Writer for a huge tech company at the moment, professionally, but I have written for tons of poetry presses, magazines, and a few newspapers over the years. I submitted to your press and used to read Cokefish. Those were the good old days for sure. Glad that you love blogging. I do, too. 🙂
