I’m just so tired of it! I’m tired of it being the gauge of whether I had a successful week of exercise and eating right. I’m tired of it being the source of my good mood on Fridays. I want to cut the rope!
How do I do this though?
The scale is super important when you’re trying to lose weight. Sure I can take my measurements but that doesn’t tell me if my weight has decreased. In fact, I could measure myself and have lost inches but then step on the scale and be the same weight I was for the past few weeks.
But should the number on the scale really matter? Should I really let that number define me?
Of course the answer to both of those questions is no. I know this but I don’t necessarily know if I agree. It’s true that no matter what I weigh if my clothes fit and I feel good, that’s what should matter but I want to be a healthy weight. I want to go to the doctors and have him tell me I now have a healthy BMI, and in order to achieve that my weight has to decrease.
I continue to eat well and workout hard. I am loving the way I feel lately, healthy and strong but I have been stuck between the same 4 pounds since February and that is frustrating! This is the reason I am sick of the scale, because no matter how hard I work lately, it isn’t giving me what I want and know I deserve. I feel as though I am fighting an uphill battle and the scale is winning.
Have you cut the rope between you and the scale or how have you learned to control your emotions in regards to the scale?
