So many women are chained to the scale. In a daily ritual, often first thing in the morning, they get on it while recounting everything they have eaten or not eaten and waiting with baited breath for the number to appear.
Are you one of these women? If so, you’re not alone and can probably answer this next question very easily.
What happens once you see the number on the scale? For most of us, one of two things will happen: you feel better about yourself or you feel like crap.
See what happened there?
The number on the scale just dictated how you will feel about yourself for the day.
The number on the scale measures weight, which is the force pressing against it.
The number on the scale does NOT represent
- your worth
- your quality of life
- if you are loved/appreciated
- your desirability/sexiness
- your successes or strengths
- how much of your weight is made up of muscle, bone, fat, tissue, or organs
- whether your day should/will be good or bad
Why then do we let the scale dictate all of these things? How is it that we can get on the scale feeling good and beautiful, but get off feeling defeated and depressed?
Move beyond the scale!!!
Get off the scale and live your life instead. Focus on how you feel, move, perform. When you wake up in the morning feeling good, don’t get on the scale!!! FEEL GOOD! If you wake up in the morning feeling bad, instead of getting on the scale, do something that makes you feel better.
Some women who have thrown away their scales have reported feeling a sense of freedom and happiness, being more connected with themselves, and having a better body image.
