Over the last several years, I have allowed my self-worth to be defined by a number. Every week I would get on the scale only to see it creeping it’s way up. I would step off that scale with my head hung low and immediately get down on myself for the mistakes I made the past week that led up to the weight gain. I was never able to weigh myself more than once a week because I allowed the number to define my worth and I began to have a very unhealthy relationship with the scale.
It has taken some time, but I no longer allow the number on the scale to define me. Sure, I get frustrated when I’ve gained weight but I am beginning to understand the science behind the why. I am working on having a healthier mindset when it comes to weight loss and that means allowing myself to weigh every day (give or take a day) and being able to understand that perhaps it was the chocolate cake or the salty popcorn that put me over the edge. I now understand what I need to do in order to keep seeing the scale go down. Do I always do it? Of course not. But I understand what to do and the choice is mine.I am not defined by a number on a scale. I am a child of God and He sees me beautiful. Click To Tweet
