But even more importantly, is to know that you are not defined by a number. You are not loved based on how much you weigh, what pant size hangs in your closet, or how many calories you’ve logged in an app. You are not a number. You are so much more.
This life is far too short to waste waging war with the scale and yourself. And you cannot be who you were fully created to be and live the extraordinary life laid out for you when your identity and worth belongs to a number.
During college I met with the scale daily, after college it was maybe weekly or monthly and later on in the midst of whacking out my hormones and gaining weight, I realized the scale was doing nothing for me both mentally and physically. And when I stepped off the scale once and for all and started taking care of myself by resting and eating well, my jeans stopped getting tighter. And almost two years later I’m still in the same jeans and eating lots of good food along the way.The scale means nothing.
