1. Step number one: throw the scales out. I’ve never owned one. You don’t need it to know if you’ve gone off track a bit, and you don’t need it to get you back on. You and your awesome body are doing just fine xo

  2. This is the first time I read that someone found so many lovely and appreciating words for her body! It is so true what you write. Our body mostly never suffices to our expectations but once we try to understand the work it has/had to do our perception changes dramatically! This is a wonderful reminder to cherish and foster our bodies! For this lifetime we only have this one.

    1. Erika, thanks so much for sharing your wonderful thoughts and kind words! It is so funny on one small aspect of our physical health, such as weight, can cast a shadow on the countless wonders and miracles that our body performs every day. It definitely helped me to identify the positive things about my body, and I am glad that you could relate to this, as well.

      1. Absolutely, Kristy. Also you reminded me to look at my body from a different point of view. It is like in life. The little but obviously very bothering situations make us blind for the blessings we are still surrounded by.

  3. I find myself measuring my worth by how much I weigh. It really is ridiculous, isn’t it? I loved this article and am inspired by your ability to remember to come home to yourself and your truth. You’re awesome ❤

  4. I am with you Kristi…the scale does not measure our worth but I am like you and there is certain weight that I am not comfortable with. My depression has caused me to be pretty sedentary and to do some emotional eating but I am gearing up to exercise more and improve my eating habits so I can be healthier. Losing weight will just be a benefit….

    I especially liked how you appreciated everything your body does for you. Puts a lot of things in perspective.

    1. As always, I am glad that I am not alone in this unhealthy relationship with emotional eating and the scale, and I am even happier that we both are focused on cultivating healthier habits. Our bodies are truly amazing, and they deserve our love, respect, and care, no matter what the number on the scale is.
