[Listen to me read this post out for you on Spotify]
You’re worth far more than any number on a scale.
If you don’t have to, seriously, NEVER weigh yourself.
Is it actually useful to know your weight and how it fluctuates daily, weekly, monthly? Be honest.
Instead, it’s far more useful to note how your body is feeling. How are you feeling at the moment? Are you a bit bloaty? Are you in pain? Are your clothes tight or uncomfortable?
If stepping on the scales makes you feel so crappy that you lose motivation then remove that toxic bitch from your life!! No BODY has time for that negativity.
If you’re losing confidence and beating yourself up because of those scales, get yourself out of that depressing cycle.
You have the power to remove those negative influences in your life and become more productive in your journey through life.
And remember, our weight fluctuates so much that we weigh differently at different times of the day. The amount of water you drink or whether you’ve emptied your bowels will make a lot of difference. Even the amount of sleep you get will change your weight!
So weighing youself day to day doesn’t actually matter. You know what does matter?
How strong you are becoming as you train your muscles to lift weights.
Holding that yoga pose or nailing your pilates routine.
Reaching your goal of running a few km or completing a marathon.
Feeling confident when you look in the mirror.
Loving yourself because you’re worth it!
It’s rare that I check my weight anymore. When I do, I accept the number that appears on the dial. It’s only a number.
Working towards fitting into a pair of jeans or a slinky dress is a great goal, but you deserve to love yourself and feel worthy in the clothes you are already in. No matter the size.
