The other day, I was looking at a scale, and thought I should weigh myself and get some new numbers. In the past, I have rarely weighed myself, because the numbers on the scale have always made me a little nauseous. I have this body image in my head that doesn’t correlate with the numbers on the scale. I don’t understand why I think I need to be light as a feather, or weigh 120 pounds, or the like. All my life I have watched those numbers go up, and down, and up, and down, and up again….you get the idea. It has only been the last two years, that the numbers have slowly decreased and stayed that way. Back to the other day, I looked at the scale, and started to get that nauseous feeling, then paused for a second. For the first time in my life, I thought….I AM MORE THAN A NUMBER. That day, I didn’t get on the scale and don’t really have plans to step back on it anytime soon.
Right now, I feel better than I have ever felt.
Right now, I am in the best shape of my life.
Right now, I look better than ever.
Right now, I am exercising almost daily.
Right now, I am the happiest I have ever been.
Right now, I am the most content that I have ever been.
With that in mind, I don’t need a number on a scale to either confirm or contradict that. I will keep doing what I’m doing, looking forward, and learning more and more about living a healthy lifestyle.
