More than a number(on the scale)
Saturday, January 18, 2014
Ugh...I have such a love/hate relationship with my scale. I know that I am more than the number on it but yet, that number makes or breaks my day.
I made a New Year's resolution, which I don't normally do, to do weight AND measurements every Wednesday morning. I have stayed true to that resolution and noticed that my weight may not change, much, my measurement do. Since January 1st, I have only lost 3lbs but lost 6 inches(total) from my chest, waist and hips.
I wish I could convince myself that number doesn't matter. What matters is how my clothes fit, how I feel about myself and most important is that I am a good role model for my 13 year old daughter and 11 year old son. Neither one of them care what I weigh, they care that Mom runs marathons and they will get to go to Boston next time I go.
Hopefully, through this, I will see that it isn't only the scale that tells the story but the inches tell more of the story.
