Most of us are accustomed to using the scale to measure our weight. That is all fine and good as long as we stop there. However, the struggle comes when we then allow the number that we see to determine how we feel about ourselves. This is the point where we chose helplessness over hopefulness. The scale does not measure self worth.
I have definitely had my struggles with the scale and I have launched into a number of self-berating sessions, but ultimately it’s not feelings of shame and helplessness that propelled me forward in my journey with weight.
