Finding the ‘zero-point’ of your conscience

By Leslie Michaelson

Recently I was cleaning out my kitchen cupboards and came across an old Weight Watcher’s© scale, the kind used to measure serving portions so that you can effectively monitor your weight loss program. To accurately weigh your portions, you must calibrate the scale’s zero-point. That is don by first setting the empty dish onto the scale and then you reset the dial to zero. From that point, any portion you place into the dish may be accurately weighed and monitored.
