Forgetting about the scale!

Posted by cleancowgirl on July 16th, 2012 |Filed Under Uncategorized |

When I  first begin taking steps toward a healthier me, it’s easy to think that the only thing that matters is the number on the scale.  I am obsessed with the scale.   After all, that message is reinforced everywhere you turn. We have tickers that document how much weight we have lost or need to lose. Weight Watchers sets 10% goals, and in every form of media - no shortage of advertisements offering ways to lose the excess pounds, shed the unwanted weight, win the battle against the scale.
It is total BS!

Look, the scale is a great indicator of progress, but it is simply that - ONE indicator. A SINGLE data point in a sea of potential progress markers. Why did you start this “journey”? Was it just to lose some arbitrary amount of weight with a total disregard to your overall health? If so, cut off an arm and cauterize the wound.

No, I suspect like me  that you are taking steps toward a healthier you, a stronger you, a more confident you. And that, my friends, is NEVER going to be reported by the scale.

Tommorow I will post ways to keep up our momemtum without looking at the arbitrary number.
