You heard me, just ditch it! So many of us become addicted to getting on the scale every morning to judge what we ate the day before, or for some of us maybe to shame ourselves for not getting to the gym. For many stepping on the scale daily can sabotage your healthy lifestyle efforts. How often have you worked out really hard, eaten really well and stepped on the scale and you gained a pound? Then, out of frustration, the next day you eat two pieces of fabulous chocolate cake and the scale drops!?!?! This is enough to drive anyone that is trying to lose weight, crazy.
I used to be on the scale daily and seriously drove myself to eat more and exercise less. To me it was depressing watching the scale move ever so slightly to get to a desired number. Some arbitrary number that I thought sounded good. So I would sabotage myself and have a bag of chips on the couch. It wasn’t until years later that I learned to accept how I was built and what my healthy weight was.
If you are exercising regularly (3-5 times per week) and eating a relatively clean diet you will be at your set weight. A place that your body is comfortable and running most efficiently. Embrace your body and where it is at. Quiet all the mind chatter about your weight, take a deep breath and know that everyone is different and you don’t need a scale to determine your self worth. Keep everything simple and you can achieve the balanced body you may desire.
I know this ended up a little mushy but seriously LOVE your body and stop driving yourself nuts on the scale!!!! You will thank me later........
