It’s Not About the Number on the Scale…

Image result for number on scale doesn't matter

I’m such a hypocrite.

Because I hit the scale every morning and depending on what it says, I let it influence my mood.

I’m writing this to convince myself it’s not about the number on the scale.  It’s how I feel every moment of every day.  How I treat my body.  How I eat.  How I workout.  How I sleep.  How I rest.  How I live.

This is what matters.

It’s not about how I look in the mirror.  Nor about how my clothes fit (because it’s hard to find clothes that fit me and look good on me unless it’s workout gear).

It’s all in the mind.  It’s accepting me, and how God designed my body and being done with it.  There’s no manipulation.

The only control is the day-to-day activities/fuel I do/feed myself.

These little decisions that add up in big ways.

It’s mental.

So stop playing the game society tells you to play.

Lead with your heart, soul, mind, and spirit.

The rest will fall into place…

  1. You are gorgeous… It’s a shame that society has made women beat themselves up, where we feel we need to be perfect… BUT what is perfect?? I’m always in awe of people who are not perfect, but radiate true happiness, no matter how they look —- suddenly, we can see their beauty too. Let’s strive for that! 🙂

  2. I gained .2 pounds this week. It’s hard not to make that influence us since we grew up being told how we should look, what we should weigh, etc. Today I choose not to let it bother me!

  3. I find scales useful when I’m obviously trying to lose some weight-like after the triple threat of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It can definitely be a motivation tool. Other wise I just try to live right and let nature take its course.

  4. The number I see on my scale is basically the same one I always saw, but my body looks a lot different than it did 5 or 10 years ago, when I weighed the same as I do now!
