WW: The scale is fighting me back.

I stepped on the scale today and my weight stayed exactly the same, which would be great if I had already hit my goal weight but I haven't! Bastards! I'm not really that upset about it in actuality because I have been talking about starting pilates and I haven't done it yet so my body is clearly telling me to step. So I will this week, I'm going to do it tomorrow and I'm scared. I've tried pilates a few times in the past and walked away mangled and sore. But that's the price I have to pay to make the scale move.

As Madonna sings in American Life "I do Yoga and Pilates. And the room is full of hotties. So I'm checking out the bodies. And you know I'm satisfied."

As everyone probably knows Madonna by now that she Kabbalist and all the proceeds of her moral based children's books go to charity. I've only read The English Roses and Mr. Peabody's Apples. I really liked Mr. Peabody's Apples as it was about not making assumptions about others.

In my Fifi Award gift bag, I received a Slatkin Kabbalah Candle in Spiritual Cleansing which has notes of Red Frangipani, Heliotrope, Musk, Vanilla, and Creamy Sandalwood.

Anyhow, inside the packaging of the candle was the famous red string which is supposed to be worn on your left hand to guard against evil until it falls of by itself. The color red for Kabbalah symbolizes power and energy.

As I'm basically on a journey of cleansing my spirit should I burn the candle and sport the famous red string?

Pilates-> Madonna-> Red String-> Guard Against Evil -> Happy Me?

I don't want there to be rumors that I've gone all "Hollywood" and I certainly don't want to have to defend myself on the Today show on what the virtues of Kabbalah are. I just want to burn the pretty red candle and find out how long that red string really lasts. I have issues with wearing things on my wrists and don't wear bracelets or watches and I hate when people grab my wrists so I question if I should go forward with this.

You tell me, should I burn my candle and sport the red string?

I don't know, I think that candle sounds like it might smell really nice. Could you work it so you could wear the candle and burn the string? Admittedly, it'd be tricky to tie the candle around a wrist.
The red string always reminds me of the string that used to be tied around the dimsum/pastry box my mom used to pick up from this one place in Oakland all the time. Anyway, the red string makes everyone look like a ninny, so I'm with Katiedid: wear the candle!
Wear the candle! The scent alone will be motivating for you.

And hang in there.
If you don't want to wear the string on your wrist, you could wear it somewhere else. How about in your hair? I don't recommend you putting candles in your hair.
Yay! I did it and the Ci-Boy is wearing the red string!
