Please just let me do me. I'm so not about that scale life.

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Anyone that has followed me throughout my journey knows that I don't believe in weighing myself. This past summer I worked with a trainer, and she insisted that I buy a scale to track my weight. I did, and regret every bit of it.

Before I purchased the scale I never worried about a number or if I lost or gained weight. I just enjoyed working out and having fun doing so. Now I feel like knowing my actual weight is putting pressure on me and is discouraging me a lil.

Never again will I listen to anyone else. I'm doing what's best for me. I wish I could get my money back for that scale, but I guess I'll throw it in the trash.

    Thanx Ladies! I'm definitely never weighing myself again. I did so well not knowing my weight.

    I feel ya! Do you an let no one take away your power/right of choice. The trainer was ok in her opinion, but should've respected your right not to use one.

    I know where you're coming from. The numbers on the scale can determine the rest of your day.

    In theory I understand why it's used to measure progress but I would prefer to use how my clothes fit and how I feel.

    I've heard of people measuring themselves EVERY DAY and I refuse to do that. I'm not going to let a scale control me like that.

    In life, you have to find what works best for you.

    Donate it to Goodwill or something. It could be a blessing to someone else. Don't let it get you discouraged emoticon
