Numbers on a Scale

I remember when I used to value my results by a number on the scale and whether or not my thighs rubbed when I walked. Sounds ridic writing this down but it's true. I used to binge and starve myself back in highschool in order to stay at a certain weight. 
..

It lasted a few years and then I threw away my scale and I broke that daily habit of valuing myself by a number on the scale. I was MORE concerned with the "look" of fit rather than actually being fit. If you have struggled with achieving the "look" then I encourage you to do a few things. 
..
#1 throw out your scale
#2 hide your tape measure to only check 1x a month
#3 start writing in a journal and track what your body CAN do and celebrate that! How long can you hold a wall sit!? How about a plank!? What are you lifting? Have you increased your weights? Or what's your 5k time? Did you meet your water goal? What about less sugar? More veggies?

What I'm saying is that Fitness is measured by what your body CAN do. I never want to encourage you to "look" a certain way. I know that life and it sucks. You will never be happy if thats your goal. Surgeries, starvation and hatred for your body is NOT the answer. Instead Love is always the answer. πŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’–

Btw, I'm happier now and I'm stronger than I've ever been. YES my thighs are thicker than ever πŸ‘ŒπŸŠπŸŠand I still don't have a scale and I have no idea what I weigh and I don't care.

WE ARE WORTH MORE THAN A NUMBER. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜
