"The Number on the Scale Does Not Define You"
I have decided to participate in No Weigh in April. I'm going to try really hard not to weigh myself. Currently, I weigh myself everyday come hell or high water. That number can definitely have an impact on my day. I know that I am not defined by my weight, but when you work out hard and eat clean and do not see those numbers getting smaller, it can be defeating.
Way back in January, I read this post on my hero's website. Swim Bike Mom, aka Meredith, had me in tears. Literally. I've been a slave to the scale my entire life, and it hasn't made much of a difference in my weight, but it has "weighed me down". I asked Swim Bike Mom then if I could repost her post on my blog and awesome human being that she is, she said "Yes!". Instead of reposting and getting on with my workouts, etc, I promptly hit rock bottom and began sitting on the couch eating whatever I felt like and not exercising one bit. So, needless to say, the post never happened. I've been back at it for six weeks now and I feel like I am finally ready to ditch the scale. (And yes, I am hyperventilating as I type this).
So here it is: I WILL NOT WEIGH MYSELF FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF APRIL!!! (but you better believe that I'll be standing on that bad boy May 1 ;)
