Hello and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Cory and I attended the wedding of one of my sorority sisters, and it was a lovely event! She and her groom looked fabulous, and it was great to be back at our alma mater for the reception!
I spent Sunday afternoon with my parents and the evening was enjoyed by “un-plugging” and reading my Self magazine that I picked up from my parent’s mailbox 😉 One article peaked my interested, and seemed like a perfect follow up to my food anxiety post.
A few of you commented and/or emailed asking how I “got over” my food anxiety, and I think The Scale had a lot to do with it.
I’ll be honest – a few years ago, one pound could make me feel like Two Ton Tessie. On the other hand, one pound could make me feel like a SUPER MODEL.
Clearly, it was an unhealthy relationship.
Around the same time I was getting over my food anxiety, I dumped The Scale. I stopped allowing my anxiety about food, weight, and life in general dictate my self-worth.
I think of my dumping The Scale as breaking up with an unhealthy boyfriend. The scale usually made me feel about about myself, but then made up for the emotional abuse by providing false securities.
After The Scale and I broke up, I gained a whole new sense of confidence and lost a ton of inner drama. And that’s what worked for me!
Let’s chat – What works for you in regards of stepping on the scale? Everyone’s preference is different – I’m not saying mine is the right one! This is simply what works for ME.
