Weight Loss Innovation: Ignore Reality

Scales are banned at Planet Fitness --Tootsie Rolls are not. (NH Magazine/Brad Fitzpatrick)

Forget about counting calories…  Here’s a New Year’s resolution you are guaranteed to keep: Don’t weigh yourself.

Scales are banned at Planet Fitness, an otherwise stellar institution that gives out free pizza and purple Tootsie Rolls and doesn’t screw you with outrageously high membership fees.

People who say they don’t want to be defined by a number are living in La-La Land. Find out why by reading “Weighting for Validation,” my latest “Last Laugh” column for New Hampshire Magazine.

(Note: Brad Fitzpatrick is the same talented illustrator behind the clever Forbidden Fish Pedicure cartoon for NH Magazine).
