For so long, I used to be fixated on the number of the scale. How i felt would be based on the number on the scale. What I chose to eat that day and how much exercise I should do would be based on the number on the scale.
The number on the scale would make me so anxious.
Now I look back, I realise that it was the completely wrong mindset.
I now think about the following:
- How can I become a better person?
- What improvements can I make in my life?
- How can I support those around me?
The number on the scale is only a tool in which you measure your progress. The number on the scale does not define you. You are more than just a number.
We need to seek happiness and love ourselves for who we are and better ourselves everyday.
