Ditch the scales! Today!
What does it mean to be emotionally attached to the scale? IF YOU ANSWER YES TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS ITS TIME TO GET RID OF THE SCALES! NOT TOMORROW OR NEXT WEEK! TODAY!
- Do you weigh yourself more than once a week?
- Do you feel over the moon if the scale is less than the last time you weighed in?
- Do you feel like crying if the scales says more than the last time you weighed in?
- Do you get annoyed, frustrated if it doesn’t move after putting in a really hard week?
These are just few of the questions that you need to ask yourself if you feel that the weighing scales has some power over you.
The weighing scales does not define you! It cannot measure muscle, it cannot tell you how much water you are holding. It is basically gravity!
I love when clients come to me and say “I am not worried about my weight, I just want to look and feel good and also get a balance with my nutrition”. I say great! Make sure you don’t go near the weighing scales or if you do don’t focus on the number. If you are feeling happier, looking better then it doesn’t matter what that number says. A few weeks later I will be contacted by them and the first thing they will say is “I haven’t lost much weight” We then look back over their set goals and they need to be reminded why they came in the first place.
Everyone gets so fixated on the weighing scales, even obsessed to some degree! If you feel this is you then some soul searching needs to be done! If you wake up every morning and the first thing you think about is the scales then there is a problem that needs to be addressed with a professional!
If you feel good, your clothes are fitting again, your skin is glowing then that is amazing. Isn’t that what everyone wants? to just feel good?
SO DITCH THE SCALES TODAY, TAKE MEASUREMENTS INSTEAD, TAKE PHOTOS, USE YOUR CLOTHES AS A GUIDE!
