“Don’t miss out on 95% of your life, just to weigh 5% less.”

๐Ÿ‘Wise words I wish I had accepted a lot sooner in my health journey.

Iโ€™ve been having this conversation with friends, clients + new women in my community lately and I felt itโ€™s time to bring shed some light on it. 

โš–๏ธ The conversation is around how easy it is to let a number on the scale determine whether you have a โ€œgood dayโ€ or a โ€œbad day.โ€ It literally is the preface for the day ahead. 

Important considerations like cycle fluctuations, water retention, sodium, muscle growth etc. donโ€™t matter. All the emphasis is one a single number which determines = success/failure. 

โœ‹Hereโ€™s your permission to STOP that right now. A scale is a tool to monitor progress but, if it emotionally and mentally upsetting for you then itโ€™s time to reassess. 

*If youโ€™re under Doctors orders, then continue following that. But if you believe some magical number that you used to weigh in High School is going to solve all your problems, hereโ€™s some tough love:

Shift the emphasis from a number to having a healthy body + mind as a whole.

Ask yourself: 

๐Ÿ‘‰Why do you want this certain number? 

๐Ÿ‘‰What is so magical about this number? 

๐Ÿ‘‰How is the obsession affecting your life? 

๐Ÿ‘‰Other than reaching a certain (often unattainable) number, what needs to happen for you to change or shift this obsession? 

๐Ÿ‘Try journaling these thoughts out and see what comes up. 

Remember: your health is a journey, not a destination. You can always shift your habits to support, promote + reflect the best version of you.
