I know we hate the scale right?! I used to. I used to hate the scale. I would say, " I know from my clothes" I know from my inches.. I know right?
How did I know? By weighing my choices, by judging my days good or bad by how I felt, by what I thought I should be doing. Did I eat a dessert? Did I have challah? Automatically I weighed it as not a great day.
I have found in the last 8 years of my journey eating cleaner, less processed foods, coaching individuals and groups, that when we don't go on the scale we weigh ourselves constantly. We are judge, jury and even executioner and feel like, we can't care, don't care, are stuck and don't know how we got, where we got. Or that we are doing everything right and it just doesn't work, so do need the next crazy diet, the next disaster cleanse.
In the last 6 months guiding people, every day with positivity on how to approach the scale how to be positive with the scale and how to appreciate their body again, I have seen trust. Like this.
I went up, I am ok, my body loves me, my body is kind to me. That's is not how we weigh a day of food orgy in our minds. We would judge it as horrible and not see that our body is kind and we just feel disgusting because we overate and that doesn't suit us, it doesn't make up feel healthy or good, and maybe next time we can be kinder to ourselves right back and make choices that are more about how food makes us actually feel physically.
When we weigh in we can get out of our heads, we can get in touch with our bodies, and stop judging every bite and instead intuitively see through our tracker whats working for us in life and whats not.
Whats making us happy and whats not, whats delicious and satisfying us and whats not.
I know this video is 15 minutes Long, but its a truth bomb. Scale vs internal scale, where do you fall?
