Scales are the Devil

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Scales are my nemesis. I've never liked them. It's easier to think of them as liars than as revealing the truth... or it used to be! They were like a demon in my life, and made me so crazy!

Then I realized one day the lie was the ones I told myself. That I was just a number, that it was the only thing that mattered, all of that negative self-talk that used to be the core of my living life.

Today I don't do that. I am focused on goals, things I can do daily to help me feel better and live a healthier life! For example: today I took a 45 min. walk before work, and it was beautiful and cloudy outside, perfect weather for my walk!

Then I had to take my smidget for a well-check at the doc, so I weighed myself. It's been about a month or so since I stepped onto the devil to see what lie it would tell me. Turns out it wasn't so ugly, I'd lost a couple # in that time (despite the horrid migraines I've had in the last month and the carb-craze that tends to accompany them!). Not where I "want" to be, but still moving forward.

So, yeah, that devil lost today!! Yay!
