For many the scale is a 4 letter word, a obsession, and a reflection of your hard work… But why do we put such an emphasis on it? I will be the first to admit that I used to be obsessed with the scale. That I would weigh myself every morning and even when I was sick. I got on that damn thing just hoping I would see a loss and feel better about myself. That number could make or break my entire day. Instantly putting me in a bad mood if I jumped on and saw that it did not budge and I was busting my ass all week. Thats it! All that hard work and nothing… I give up.
Now let me tell you how I am Fuck that scale! It is not the only way to measure progress. That number IS NOT a reflection of you, and your body can be a stubborn ass and hold onto weight for many reasons. Just this morning I am hearing everywhere. I have been working so hard, I hopped on the scale and its not what I want I am so discouraged. Well let me ask you… How do you feel? Really since you started how do you feel? Are you happier, more energy, feeling better, lift your head a little higher because you are doing something for YOU! No one else. Remember there are other ways to measure your progress.
You started this journey for more than just that number. It will move, sometimes it can take longer than others. But when it gets tough, when you want to throw in the towel. Find someone that will help bring you back to it. Find a person that can remember Why you started in the first place. You can do this! You deserve to feel amazing!
