~ you are not defined by a number ~
There’s the number on the scale, the number of followers, amount of reps at the gym, amount of money, and so so much more. These numbers have become such a focus in our lives that we tend to lose track of what’s important.
This morning I stepped on the scale and I was instantly transported into a feeling I hadn’t felt in a long time. I was mad, sad, scared, ashamed, embarrassed… I’ve felt great, but how could I possibly see this number on the scale? I do everything “right” so how could I feel so wrong?
When I first started this account I was solely focused on losing weight. I had no intention of creating a healthy lifestyle, I just wanted to see a much smaller number on the scale. It was my only goal and I was willing to go to extremes to get it.
Along the way, I’ve discovered SO much more than I could have ever imagined. I’ve found a life I love to live, in spite of whatever number I see anywhere in my day. Is it always easy? Hell no. The way I felt this morning was like taking 10 steps backwards. But I’m working on taking 20 strides forward and becoming an even better version of myself. One that accepts rather than tearing herself down.
Sorry for the rant, but sometimes I think I can’t possibly be the only one feeling this way and that maybe someone else needs to hear that they are freaking fabulous. Because numbers in any form don’t define you. You define you. Eat a snack, buy that shirt, take a nap, treat yourself, and just smile. The numbers AREN’T WORTH IT
(I say on all caps as I scream it to myself)
Ok I’m done y’all! Happy Thursday! Kick butt today ❤️
