There have been too many times where I have lost weight, a significant amount of weight, just to turn around and gain it all back plus some. And deep down I feel that if I "accept" the weight I am at and become comfortable at this weigh, I will let my guard down and the weight will find its way back. But am I being counter productive to my own weight loss? Is the constant stress I am putting on myself actually causing more harm? How can I achieve this weight acceptance and not become so comfortable that I return to bad eating habits?
For starters, I need to stop focusing on the number on the scale and just focus on a healthier lifestyle. Obsessing about that number is not leading to a better me. I am going to ditch my scale! Seriously, that scale is going bye-bye. And honestly, it is not like I am going to miss Mr. Scale. I have even mentioned in a recent blog post, The Scale hates me and I hate the scale. I let the scale dictate how I am going to feel the rest of the day and I need to stop it!
I will no longer give the scale power over me.
I accept my weight.
I will continue to live a healthy lifestyle.
Because self acceptance has to start somewhere, right? This is my somewhere.
