Love this!! Thanks for sharing. It's sad how we can feel strong, successful, and loved one second and then doubt ourselves the moment we step on the scale. I learned it was better for me not to step on one because I used to be either way to excited about a simple number or it ruined my day. I love that you finished with reminding yourself of the truth that whether you gain or lose a pound doesn't change the way people love you or the opportunities you have in life. AND I believe the more confident we are about ourselves, the better the opportunities we will have. I remind myself weight doesn't equal worth or tell me all the awesome things my body can do!! So I'm with you Adios scale and the strange power you have on me; I am so much MORE than the information you can tell me.
