You hop on the scale.
The number’s gone in the wrong direction.
This is now a trend.
You might be diligent about your efforts.
You might not be.
The point is, you’re not seeing the outcome you want.
The loss or gain just isn’t happening.
So, what do you do?
Do you freak out?
Do you stop weighing yourself?
Do you let this number ruin your day?
You could stress about about your weight.
Or you could explore why it even matters.
Is the issue your gravitational relationship with the earth?
Or your relationship with yourself?
The latter will likely benefit more from your attention and effort.
Your weight will follow.
After all, it’s only a measurement of force.
Influenced by countless factors
It’s probably that you see your weight as an indicator of your health.
Your ability to keep a promise to yourself.
Your worth as a human being.
Your control over your life.
Your weight is none of these things.
Can these factors be reflected in your weight?
But if you are looking to change these factors, address them directly.
The weight will do what it needs to do.
Want to get healthy?
Want to keep promises to yourself.
Keep promises to yourself.
Want to be worthy?
You already are.
Want control over your life?
Good luck 🙂
Unless you compete in weight-regulated competition, there are countless places more worthy of your attention than the scale.
Like how you live your life.
What you do.
If you want your weight to reflect a most excellent life, live a most excellent life.
If you want your weight to reflect that you love yourself, love yourself.
Fake it til you make it if you have to.
Even that will be more effective than freaking out over gravity.
You’re worth it.
As you are.
You’ve got this.
