"Today, imagine that you live in a world where scales do not exist. " This is what Spark Coach asked me to do today. And to think about how I would judge if I am healthy and fit.
Oh, I can say things like my body wouldn't hurt. And I would be able to climb more than 3 flights of stairs without gasping for air. Or that my clothes would feel comfortable (and oh, I do want that feeling).
But coincidentally, a friend sent me this picture today. THIS is a picture of unhealthy and unfit. That cat that I'm holding is huge - and 3 or 4 of them would fit in my arms. So, right or wrong - I am still a visual person. I will judge my weight not just by how I feel - but also by how I look. And I do NOT want to look like this (although, to be fair - I was happy in that pic and I'm surrounded by family, so there's a lot going for me in the shot that I will not complain about).
