I’m truly convinced the scale is the devil, my scale in particular. Your scale may be okay – but my scale tells me lies. ?
Recently, I went to the doctor just for my annual exam and the scale there told me a higher number than my scale at home. Somebody scale is lying and it’s probably not the doctor’s scale. ?
While I know I haven’t gained weight because I wear waist beads to track my weight loss and they are falling, it was that immediate reminder that:
1. I need to get a new scale
2. My starting weight was higher than I initially considered it to be and
3. I’m not as close to my goal as I assumed it to be. #ouch
To be transparent, that was a lot for me to process at that moment and I’m grateful that I had some trusted friends to listen when needed.
What do you do when you have to face those tough realities that are not what you want to hear?
You continue to move forward and show up for yourself. You also remember why you started. Consistency of good eating habits, working out, drinking water, and doing what is healthy for you is the only thing that will help you reach your goal.
I’ve learned to love myself at all stages of my life. While I would love for the scale to be the number, I saw at home, I find comfort in knowing I’ll eventually get there and this is just another excerpt in my life journey.
Scripture of the Day: “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV
