As I stepped on the scale for my final 100 day weigh in, I kept repeating to myself. โฃ
โฃ

โฃ
And no matter how many times as I told myself that, my heart still sank a bit when I saw the number. โฃ
โฃ
Immediately I started to compare myself to all of the other women in the test group with me. โฃ
I started to question where I couldโ€™ve done things differently. โฃ
โฃ
In the past I wouldโ€™ve let that number consume me. ๐๐š๐ซ๐š๐ฅ๐ฒ๐ณ๐ž ๐ฆ๐ž. And likely derail me completely off track. โฃ

Not any more. โฃ

It doesnโ€™t measure how much stronger I got. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much faster I got. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much more energy I have. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much better I sleep. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much my mindset has shifted. โฃ
And it most certainly doesnโ€™t measure my confidence or self worth. โฃ
โฃ
So whether it was 5lbs down or 50, I no longer let one number negate or determine my hard work. โฃ
โฃ
I took note of the number, hopped off, and went on with my day. โฃ
