During a recent run I realized something…
…it might be time to throw away my scale.
Too often I let the number on the scale control me.
And that got me thinking, why do I let the number displayed on the scale control me when I know…
-I workout regularly (I’m in the middle of a running streak which means I’m literally active 7 days a week)
-I drink 8+ glasses of water a day
-I eat a balanced healthy diet and don’t overindulge in snacks and desserts
I can confidently say I’m taking care of my body so why do I let a number make me feel good or bad about myself on any particular day?
Maybe it’s time to throw away my scale.
I’d love to hear your thoughts…What is your relationship like with your scale? Do you use it to check your progress? Do you obsess over the number? Does it keep you on track for your goals? How does it impact your thinking and choices during the day?
