Ugh, That Scale Man!

A moment of honesty here…I almost had to break up with the scale. But we talked things through and I’ve decided to give it another chance. And by “we” I mean you and me by way of this post here so thank you for the talk.

Truth is the number on the scale hasn’t budged for a while and I am pretty frustrated. I was REALLY enjoying my own little game to see how many of my health metrics I could change and how what I would eat could change them. But they have been sitting strong and steady at the best they have been my entire life and it FRUSTRATES me. Say what!?! Yeah, I know it sounds stupid but this is just where my head is at right now. The “game” is over and I am bummed. This is where things can get real bad real fast for me if I’m not careful. I don’t want to get too discouraged by the numbers and start to overthink things.

So instead of spiraling let’s celebrate a non-scale victory by sharing some more side by sides I never thought would see the light of day. I started off this summer wearing swimsuits I have owned for years but had never worn because they were too small. And now with summer coming to an end some of those same swimsuits are now too big! So yeah, the scale hasn’t budged but that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening. That doesn’t mean the work I’m putting in is all for nothing. And that ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT give me an excuse to fly off the rails and self sabotage. There IS a transformation there and it cannot be measured by the scale alone. Period.
