My weight in the morning can make or break my day.

My weight sets the tone for my day and determines my mood.

Weighing ourselves every day is a double-edged sword. It can hold us accountable but also drive us crazy.

While I do believe it’s important to periodically weigh ourselves, I don’t believe it is necessary every day.

Our weight fluctuates daily based on multiple factors. Look at the overall trend rather than day-to-day fluctuations.

If the scale is causing us stress, consider weighing ourselves less frequently.

Our weight shouldn’t control us. A scale shouldn’t control us. A number shouldn’t control us.

Please remember, we’re all fighting mental and emotional battles that you cannot physically see.

Extreme Dieting, Eating Disorder

Extreme dieting is not sustainable and has negative side effects.

I’ve done it.

Here’s what I felt when I restricted and deprived myself:

1. Depression

2. Low energy

3. Bad moods

4. Irritability

All I thought about was food. My work and social life suffered.

I still don’t have a great relationship with food. I still am afraid of food.

I’m aware of my problem and have been working on it. I’m slowly getting better and healing.

So please take it from me. Life is a marathon. Taking care of ourselves is a lifelong process. Whatever your goals are, please take your time and work toward them in a sustainable, healthy way.

I Will Get There

I’m taking my time building the life I want.

I’m trying my best to be patient, trust the process, and enjoy the ride.

I’m building the foundation one block at a time.

It’s difficult seeing others ahead of me and speeding through life.

That’s why it’s important for me to put blinders and ear muffs on.

This is my journey. This is my life. I shouldn’t compare myself to others.

I can control my effort. I can do my best and give it my all. That is enough.

I will continue taking one step at a time and one day at a time. I will continue minding my own business. I will continue making the most of every day.

I will get there.
