The number on the scale is not an indication of your worth. Some people look at the number on a scale and it tells them one thing, it tells them how much they weigh. That’s it.
However, it doesn’t work that way with my clients. The number on the scale tells my clients how they are suposed to feel about themselves that day. Do you know what I’m talking about? Does this describe you? If the scale is 1, 2, or 5 more pounds than you wanted it to be, do you have a terrible day? Do you hate yourself? Do you wind up crying, bingeing, purging or just feeling plain crummy? If so, then it’s just not worth it. Don’t let the number on the scale tell you how to feel about yourself. Some people can look at the scale and it means nothing other than what it means, that they weigh x number of pounds. If you are not one of those people, then throw out your scale. If your scale tells you whether or not you are going to have a good day, then It has too much power over you and you need to get rid of it. You need to take care of your body to the best of your ability by nurturing it with healthy food and healthy exercise and healthy thoughts and healthy habits. But for you, weighing is not a healthy habit, it’s a way for you to hurt yourself. What do you think? Do you weigh yourself? How does it make you feel?
