Before we get to the creativity tip, does it seem extremely freaky to you that when I searched the Web for images to illustrate this, most of the scales had my exact weight?
But I digress.
If you've set creative or personal resolutions for the year, remember this critical success factor: Have measurable goals along the way, and track your progress. Don't wait. Start now.
For example, I put on three pounds over the holidays -- as every scale in the universe apparently knows. This is unacceptable, and I will be losing those three pounds pronto. Weighing in daily keeps me on track.
Find the tracking method that works for you, and use it!
Bonus creativity tip: If you were tempted to say, "Three pounds? Big deal. And you only weigh 128 pounds?" then:
A. You are not a chick.
B. You are not a five-foot-"tall" chick.
It's all a matter of perspective, my friends.
