Actually, the title could be the entire blog post:
DITCH THE SCALE!
Do it. Right now. Stop weighing yourself. Has weighing yourself ever brought you long term satisfaction? NO. What do you hope to accomplish when you step on the scale? What do you really learn when you see that number? Is it uplifting? Does it make you feel good about yourself every time? Does it add quality to your life? Does it increase your libido? Does is add years to your time on earth? Does it help others? Does it benefit society? Does it enhance your worship of God? Does it make a difference in the world? Does it feed the starving? Does it clothe the homeless? Does it add to your financial security? Does is make your children smile? Does it create fond memories? Does it love you? Do you love it?
So much time spent measuring ourselves on the scale. So much wasted time. Let’s start living beyond the scale…. you know… life, that place where the really important stuff happens.
Great post its all about feeling good
Yeah, and the scale doesn’t help me with that… obviously lol.
Roni at Roni’s Weigh posted a really good post about the scale not too long ago.
I’m not there yet. I see it as a tool, but when I play too much into the result… I tuck it away. I don’t feel like it’s healthy if it changes your outlook on the day.. good or bad. It’s definitely a slippery slope though.
I’ll check out Roni’s post. I know. It’s a process. I used to see it as a tool and then I started asking myself if that was really true. Is it a tool that helps me accomplish something or gives me information that will benefit me in some way? Not really.
Here’s the post that led to the post in my 1st reply… it’s very eye-opening and she’s right on.
