Don’t be a “scale” addict.

Ladies…I know we all have our own story and we all workout for different reasons. But I see A LOT of girls desperately trying to see lower numbers on their scales. It looks to me like the main reason they’re doing it (working out/eating healthy) is to see a low number on scales. The only thing thing keeping them going is the hope that one morning they’ll stand on the scale and their “ultimate goal weight” will be staring them in the face.

I believe, and yes this is my personal opinion, that what should be staring you in the face, is yourself in the mirror. Why not forget about the numbers for a while? Check your progress in the mirror, how your clothes fit, compare old photos with new photos, happiness, how well you sleep at night, how much energy you have, how strong you are mentally and physically, there are probably a million other reasons but these are the ones just came to mind now.

Different weights look different on every single body. Just because your favourite celeb has a bangin’ bod at a certain weight, doesn’t mean it’s going to look fantastic on you too. Honestly, the more muscle you have, the leaner you look.

Don’t let numbers define you.

    Funny, I also wrote a blog entry about this today. Something must be in the air around the topic of the scale. I like your perspective on this topic. I went at looking at the number just as data … nothing more, and nothing less.
