don't let the scale define you !

Tuesday, August 10, 2010





It's never been true that the value of a soul, of a human spirit is dependent on a number on a scale. When we start defining ourselves by that which can be measured or weighed, something deep within us rebels. ~ Geneen Roth.

Yesterday I saw a repeat show on Oprah with Geneen Roth. It was a real eye-opener for me. If you get the opportunity to watch this show please do.

  i needed to hear that

but my clothes are fitting better

    I too needed to read this. It is so hard not to measure your progress by the one thing everyone seems to ask about.

Thanks for sharing!

    Cute pics! I agree, the number on the scale is simply that, a number. I never let it get me down when it's not what I want to see. There are so many other things that are indicative of my progress and any one scale reading is just feedback for that particular time. It fluctuates so greatly. It's the overall downward trend over time that means I'm doing something right :-)

Day 4 - Shopping the perimeter

Sunday, July 25, 2010



When shopping make sure you shop mostly in the perimeter of the grocery store. Why you ask? Because that is where you will find your fresh and frozen fruits and veggies, meats and multigrains breads.
