I’ve tried to write this post 3 times and always end up deleting my previous efforts. So I’m gonna go with the flow for this one, try to write coherently, and hope you understand where I’m coming from.
I don’t weigh myself. WHY? Because I truly feel, for most people out there, they will never be happy with the number they see on the ‘sad step’ (perfect name for it I think!)
This is a recent lifestyle change. About 6 months ago I still weighed myself regularly (every week or so), and in the past I have gone through periods of weighing myself extremely regularly along with restricted eating. I’m at the point in my life where I don’t want to feel bad after stepping on an apparatus. It brings about such a feeling of self-hate that I’m not prepared to have in my life anymore.
If I feel good about myself and my body and my clothes fit how I want to, why should a figure change that? And more importantly, why do we let it? Why do we let silly numbers dictate our days/weeks/lives?
If you’re on a weight loss journey I can see how it helps, but sometimes the weighing scales really aren’t the true indicator on to whats happening with your body. Go with what you see in the mirror, how your clothes fit compared to how they used to, do you see new muscle definition where you didn’t before?
I have no idea how much I weigh right now, I eat healthily and workout a lot AND I treat myself too. I don’t want anything to change my positive mindset, so I don’t want to know. I’m come to the point where I can honestly say..
I DON’T CARE.
Which feels so bloody liberating to say.
For the first time EVER in my life, I’m happy with my body. Its about time.
Do you weigh yourself?
