I Quit...

… The scale that is!

I’m tired of stepping on it and getting discouraged because it doesn’t move! I hate the way it makes me feel like I am putting in so much work but getting no results! I don’t like being ruled by a number. I don’t like the negativity that I associate with the evil little thing… I don’t like the negativity that I associate with myself because of its lack of movement, or its movement in the wrong direction (but who’s fault is that really?)

So I’ve decided to quit the scale and I’m not taking measurements. I’m just focusing on myself! I’m focusing on the way my close fit… the way I feel when I look in the mirror… I’m not letting the numbers rule me anymore. I want things to be different this time! I want to be able to actually make it through a summer and holiday season without gaining at least 10 lbs (if not more)! I want my focus to be on positive lifestyle changes and not getting caught up in numbers! If and when people ask me how much weight I’ve lost I want my response to be, “I have no idea!”
