To Hell with the Scale

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

So, I have always been hung up with the number o the scale. Every since I have dealt with my body image, I always have a number in mind of where I want to be. Well, I am TIRED of that number haunting me. I am tired of being disappointed when the scale does not show the number I want to see. It is extremely frustrating when I think back on how upset I get with myself because of that damn number, completely forgetting all of the hard work I've put in at the gym and how much stronger and healthier I am becoming. NO MORE! I refuse to let a number drag me day and throw me off focus any longer. My measuring stick is changing. I am going to concentrate on shortening my mile time, having better endurance and watching my clothes fit differently. After all, the number is really not what's important. What is important is me being healthier and feeling good about myself. So, TO HELL WITH THE SCALE!

    Well said! I'm not gonna lie, I am addicted to my scale and weigh myself several times a day. BUT I won't ever let that number get me down!

    The scale is my mortal enemy . . . it is so deceitful. I'll be feeling all good about myself and in an instant of stepping on it . . . I feel defeated. I KNOW my body is changing . . . I can see it . . . I FEEL better . . . but that dang scale just won't let me be great. I know your feeling. Don't weigh yourself as much. Focus on how you feel, how your clothes fit and maybe even on measurements. The scale is not end all be all. I am so with you . . . TO HELL WITH THE SCALE!

    Amen!! I gave my scale to Good Will years ago. I agree with everything you said about how frustrating and upsetting it is to look down at the number, finding out I gained a pound when I was SURE I lost a couple. I was obsessed with that white flat thing sitting on my bathroom floor. It held so much power over me! I'd weigh myself 2 to 3 times a day which often caused anxiety. It became counterproductive-- if I did gain a pound after working out/eating right for a day, I'd get pissed at myself and then pig out. Soooo finally i decided the same as you-- "the hell with the scale".
    My clothes are my gauge-- I've got 3 sizes to choose from in my closet! But I've recently decided to get weighed at my doctor's office once a month so i can track my weight here. I haven't done that yet-- still a little nervous about that number. lol
    thanks for starting this blog:)
