Yesterday a client stated: "I'm drinking more water, eating better, have cut down on my alcohol intake, yet the scale still makes me feel so bad."...
I responded: PLEASE remember, the scale is just an "overall number". The scale does NOT show:
How much better your clothes are fitting
How much your blood pressure/cholesterol/blood glucose numbers have improved
How you no longer breathe heavily while climbing stairs
The number of fruits and veggies you eat every day
The number of medications you've been able to stop taking since getting healthier...and so much more.
While the scale may be limited, please do not limit your thinking!
Never let the number on the scale become the only measure of your worth; make healthy choices, most of all BE CONSISTENT, and trust the process.
