Why throwing away the weighing scales will finally give you the freedom you need to start feeling good (and fitting great into your clothes!)

When you consider yourself a smart, intelligent, successful, women, it’s a little crazy that you may be getting stressed out over the weighing scales, right?

I mean think about, think about all you do in a week, how hard you work, the time and effort you make into trying to make everything run smoothly. You push forward, working hard, improving everything, trying to fit everyone in, and some of you, are still hoping up on the weighing scales every week, and seriously berating yourself for ‘how big/heavy/fat/un-fit/failure-like I am’

Isn’t that just CRAZZZYYYYYYY?

When you really, truly think about it?

What on earth do you think the weighing scales tells you? Would you put your kids or partner up on the scales and start berating them or applauding them for what you see? Can you imagine hoe damaging that is!

And there it is, ‘HOW DAMAGING THAT IS’

That’s what you’re doing to yourself. You’re damaging your confidence, your picture of yourself, you’er dis-respecting the fact that you’re eating healthy, or the fact that you’re working out.

It’s crazy. I gave up the scales years ago, and encourage all of my clients to do so.

You know when your clothes are tight, you know when they fit well. You know when you’re comfort eating, you know when you’re looking after yourself.

You know when you’re skipping workouts, you know when you’re on it.

You don’t need the scales to tell you any of that.

You’ve a number in your head, a silly number that you picked and you want to get back to that number. You don’t know hy, you just think you’ll be happier at the number.

Not true.

Not true even one bit.

You’re worth so much more than a number on the scales. Break the habit. Get rid of it. Free yourself. Let it stop at your generation. Don’t let your kids see you weigh yourself. Give it up.

Work at being healthy and happy in yourself.

Workout, eat well, enjoy your life, when your clothes get tight, do something about it, before it becomes a big problem.

Pass down to your kids a good self-image, and show them that you love yourself.

That’s the biggest gift to you and the biggest gift you can give to your children,

Hope this helps,

Jessica Cooke
