There were days that I would weigh myself 14 times a day. I would allow that number to dictate how I felt. I would weigh myself first thing after I peed, stark naked and be like booyah! Then, I would drink my first 16oz of water, have my breakfast, go back to the scale, get nakey, and then boooom I gained 4 pounds. I knew, that in all reality I hadn’t actually gained weight that would stick with me, but I would still get down on myself because I was 4 pounds heavier than I was an hour and a half ago. Drama queen. I have had far too many conversations about what that dang number says, it’s really getting out of control with women, young and old. I decided about two months ago to hide my scale, it has done me a world of good. I am all about healthy. I believe that everyone woman should look in the mirror and feel confident, beautiful, and ready to take on the world.

I challenge you for the entire month of November {or maybe til Thanksgiving} not to weigh yourself. To make healthier decisions… Eat breakfast everyday, do an hour of activity 5 times a week, to not binge on the weekends, to eat wholesome foods, but no weighing yourself. Take pictures, rely on those to show you how much you transformed over the month. Sometimes we tone up and gain muscle {which we all know weighs more than fat} but lose inches. I mean what would you rather have a smaller number on a rinkadink scale or to feel more confident in your clothes? I know which one I choose. I’m going to take the challenge with you. I’ll weigh myself the first day of November, take a picture of myself from all angles, AND measure myself. I’ll use my instagram page to do check ins, talk about  workouts, food, recipes, and just to have a sense of community. I’d love for  y’all to join the conversation too- just use #noscalenovemberSMF so everyone can encourage each other.

We are the woman in Proverbs 31: 10-31. Our worth is far more than any number. Our worth is laid out perfectly, in black and white, written by our Creator.

You’re worth more than diamonds,

  1. I haven’t stepped on the scale since…..no idea when…but I am happy that I am still able to wear the jeans that I bought years ago.

  2. Our true self is inside us.
    I wish you good health on your changes and challenge.
