I need to write this post…because it’s something that I struggle with..YES I STRUGGLE.
It’s your best friend when it’s less than the last time you stepped on it
It’s the spark of a depressing day when it’s up
It’s the instigator of dehydration and starvation
It’s the validation I crave
It’s the most cussed annoyingly and dependent thing I HATE to have to have
I stepped on the damn thing this morning and guess what, it read high..higher than I want to admit. I freaked. What a shitty way to wake up.
I then started the whole mental talk:
- You need to be the cleanest eater this week
- You need to work out more
- You need to wear a loose dress cause you’re fat today
- You need to seriously stop snacking at night–YOU KNOW BETTER
then I.STOPPED. and SNAPPED OUT OF IT!
What the hellz bellz am I doing to myself? This is stupid. This is END FAT TALK WEEK for Christ Sakes Michelle. Snap out of it. So, I Twittered and Facebooked..because frankly, there people get it.
I asked: Do you weigh yourself?
TaydorTott It becomes obsessive so I just don’t do it! I can tell if I’ve gained weight by the mirror or clothes!
MATTIDW I hate weighing myself
SeeSarahEat I weigh in 1x/week to check in. If it starts going up too much I know to adjust a bit. But it doesn’t rule my life (anymore)!
FindingJewels i feel like the scale is good at keeping me accountable, but i sometimes allow it to dictate my self worth that day =\
I Facebooked about it and got some other interesting responses, Men this time weighing in!
Maria G Gomez Bernardezweigh your soul…
really, whatever it is you focus your energy in, grows, so I think it’s better to focus on the things you want to grow in your life instead of in those you want to get rid of 😉
