Doctorโ€™s appointments used to haunt me for weeks, simply because I knew it would be the one time Iโ€™d step on the scale.โฃ

The other day, I walked in for an appointment and hopped on the scale. My sneakers and coat were still on, I just ate a meal, had drank water all morning, and didnโ€™t flinch one bit.โฃ

โฃ
Instead of completely avoiding the scale, I started weighing in more often.โฃ
โฃ
A few months back I decided I was in a place where I was mentally ready to tackle that fear (๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ).โฃ

First, I watched one of my favorite trainers track his weight on his stories daily (๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜‘๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜š๐˜บ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ต).โฃ
โฃ
Then, I started to learn and understand some of the reasons the scale may fluctuate from day to day.โฃ
โฃ
Lastly, I started to step on the scale daily and share the process on my stories.โฃ
โฃ
For one, this held me accountable to actually following through with it, but two I hoped I’d be able to help someone else normalize their relationship with the scale like Jordan had done for me.โฃ

Not only, did I continue to successfully lose weight, but I also started to normalize my relationship with the scale.โฃ
