I have been down on myself lately. The scale is not being kind and it is not reflecting what I am feeling. I have been working hard and feeling great but then that darn little number has to shut it all down. Why do we put so much into the scale?
I always try to live by these words, "The scale does not define me" but yet the stupid scale always can bring me down. So I needed a little pick-me-up and my daughter was just the person....
We were watching the Biggest Loser together last night. It was make over night and I was tearing up as I watched the contestants see their families. But as we were watching I asked my daughter if she thought I should go on the Biggest Loser to finally get to where I want to be. And here is her response:
"MOM.... are you crazy! You don't need to go on that show because you already look good. If you went on that show, you would shrink to nothing. You already know what to do and have lost weight just by eating right and working out."
Oh my gosh.... nothing like having your daughter put everything into perspective. She is only 9 by the way.
So enough self pity party for this girl. Because my daughter is right... I do know what to do and what it takes to get there. I just have to keep on going. And I also need to stop stressing about that darn little number on the scale. Because I am more than that. I am going to be the Super mom my kids and hubby need! I am going to finish this and show how strong I really am.
I feel renewed today and know that I got this. And I have this beautiful young lady to thank!
