Over the course of my weight loss, I became addicted to the scale.
I weigh myself at least once a day, and today the number was about 2 pounds higher than it was yesterday. Immediately I was tempted to stress, worry, make myself throw up, go to the gym (even though today is my planned rest day!) and in general be a grump.
But I will not! I am so much more than a number on the scale. That. Umber says nothing about who I am to my husband, my family, my friends, and truly it says very very little about my true health at this point. It is still 12 pounds lighter than it was 12 months ago. And about 5 pounds lower than it should be for me to be within a healthy weight range.
Today, the scale won’t rule me. I won’t judge myself based on this number, but I’ll judge myself based on who I truly am.
