# Einstein Was Right: General Relativity and Your Bathroom Scale

Score one for Einstein and then score one for Our Lady of Weight Loss!
A new study has confirmed that Einstein’s theory of general relativity works on extremely large scales.
Researchers found that no matter how large the scale, the equation of general relativity predicts the way that mass pulls on other mass in the universe … which leads us straight to the bathroom scale!
What does the scale measure?
Do you know what the scales really measure – scientifically that is? As Einstein so brilliantly theorized, every object in the universe with mass attracts every other object with mass. (Some more massive than others!)
Therefore, there is a pull – a force – an attraction (even better) between you and the Earth.
Your bathroom scale measures that force of attraction and that force is called your weight! If you look at it in those terms, it takes the emphasis off fat and puts it on gravitational pull. Nowhere in scientific date – that I could find – does it state that the scale measures hideous fat. It is only a number, and I realized that I didn’t have to be in a twist over the attraction between the Earth and me. After all, I am happy to be considered attractive.
Let’s promise here and now that we’re not going to get fixated on the numbers. The turtle wins this race and numbers fluctuate with the wind. Seriously, even the weather can make you retain water!
Nevertheless, statistics show that people who weigh themselves regularly not only lose weight faster, but keep it off longer.
How often should we weigh-in and what is the best way to weigh-in?
If you are like me – the kind of person who allows the number on the scale to dictate the mood of the day, then only weigh yourself once a week and on a day when no one is depending upon you in any big way. In other words, weigh-in day is not the day to dispense life advice or operate heavy equipment.
And remember, only weigh yourself first thing in the morning, after you ‘relieve’ yourself, before coffee, and NAKED, of course. Every ounce counts.
And for goodness sake, find the right spot. Tiled floors offer varied readings, depending on the dip of the tile. Take advantage of that dip – find the lowest point, and leave your scale there!
Tasty Tidbit:
If you are weighing-in at one of those group meetings and have had a ‘bad’ week, consider putting together a light weigh-in outfit, including the lightest underwear possible! Here follows a chart courtesy of HerRoom Lingerie.
Average weights of underwear styles:
Underwear Style / Weight
Water bra / 1.00 lb.
Padded underwire bra / .40 lb.
Underwire bra / .35 lb.
Softcup bra / .30 lb.
Full panty / .20 lb.
Bikini panty / .10 lb.
Thong / .05 lb.

Thanks for the laugh this morning, Janice! Much as I love the idea of .05 lb weight of a thong, I still can’t wear ’em! I will search for that low point in the tile floor to lessen my “attraction,” however.
Wanted to mention that Dr. Nancy is soon to release a special report for Baby Boomer Women in their 40s and 50s that is packed with tips for feeling great about ourselves and following our passion. Plus a free report on 20s women so we can better understand the younger generation at work and at home.
Thanks for all you do. I love getting your emails and always find something interesting and helpful.

Thanks for the great post. It gives me an idea to weigh myself from time to time for me to monitor how I lose weight. Thanks for this wonderful post of yours.
