Weight Perspectives

Friday, February 23, 2018

I remember when the scale used to make me cry. But I was also obsessed with a number, and thought that was my value as a person. Today I'm grateful that I know I am more than just a number on a scale! I'm a good person who loves people, and I can do anything I set my mind to. I quit focusing on that stupid little scale, and started focusing on changing my life into a healthier lifestyle - and SparkPeople has been such a big part of that! I'm so very grateful for how this has helped turned my life around. I may never be a size 0 but seriously, I don't have to be to be happy!!! May we all see our worth as more than a silly little number on the scale!!
Blessings to you all!

    Isn't it a great feeling to put it into perspective! When trying to lose weight, I can become addicted to my scale - it rules my day, my mood, my attitude and ambition. I have gotten to the point where I put it in the closet and only haul it out on Monday to weigh. It's really all about doing the right things for the right reasons - better health - not a number on the scale! Way to go!
