I don't know what the appropriate category this would go under. I am making a huge thing here that is different form what is going on. I have decided to start intutitive eating and I am totally embracing it. I am a chronic dieter and I am DONE with treating myself this badly
and yoyo-ing all the time. I made a video on my blog about this breakthrough if you'd like to hear my point of view.
Anyway, if you are also doing IE or want to do it.. I am doing a Scale Smashing Party on my blog next week or so.
Throwing away or SMASHING (to be even more dramatic
your scale can be a GREAT stepping stone to this journey of IE. I have been so attached to the scale but as I am ready to let go of dieting forever I am also ready to let go of the scale FOREVER (unless I need it for like doctors or whatever). I no longer want to rely on the scale. A stpid number should not be the deciding factor in whether we feel good or bad that day. IT's a freaking NUMBER! No one knows that number EXCEPT US!!! Therefore the scale holds way too much emotional burder for any sane person to take.
So I am going to be making a video of myself throwing away my scale (not smashing becuase idk where I would do that haha I live downtown Chicago in an apartment building, don't wanna make a scene). But I will be making a post on my blog about this and I wanted to know if anyone else wanted to JOIN ME in this SCALE SMASHING PARTY!
Send me your videos of yourself smashing your scale or throwing it away and I will put together an awesome video of all of us revolting against the scale and the diet industry! This is how we can FREE ourselves! I hope you are as enthusiastic about this as I am!
I am planning on posting this on the blog sometime next week (or the following).
I really hope you join in! Make it a party! Do it with a friend! Free yourself of the control of numbers and the scale!
Send your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can't wait to celebrate this new path with everyone! CONGRATS to us for making this huge step towards self love and trusting our bodies!
