A Scale Can Never Measure Your Worth

A One-Minute MUST-READ if your weight bothers you…



As a fitness coach for the last 20 years, and someone who helps others achieve better health, fitness, and weight loss, I still see too many people obsess over this one thing.


What the scale shows you.


Sure, if you have some unhealthy weight to lose, by all means! Studies show 93% of health markers improve from proper weight loss alone. So do it however you can safely and sustainably.


BUT if you get too obsessed over just what the scale shows you, it’s a never-ending roller coaster ride full of frustration.


What the scale CAN’T measure…


The scale can’t measure the feeling of joy you get when you can bend down and play with your kids or grandkids without pain


The scale can’t measure the positive impact of you cooking and sharing a wholesome meal at home with your family


The scale can’t measure the pride you have by going to a restaurant and choosing a healthier meal instead of defaulting to the high-calorie pub grub


The scale can’t measure the influence on your kids when they see you take time for yourself to work out at home or leave for an hour with your gym bag


The scale can’t measure the importance of having healthy blood markers after your annual check-up


The scale can’t measure the confident feeling you have when you slip into a new outfit and love the way you look


The scale can’t measure the feeling of admiration you have when your spouse or partner touches you and gives you “that” look


The scale can’t measure the feeling of freedom you get when running on the beach barefoot or the feeling of functional fitness from driving the golf ball hundreds of feet


The scale can’t measure the positive side effects from when you don’t need those medications anymore


The scale can’t measure the priceless and proud feeling of getting a new promotion at work because of the confidence and endless energy you have


The scale can’t measure the feeling of trust and mobility you have when running behind your child learning how to ride a bike


The scale can’t measure the feeling of strength and stability you have when helping move furniture up flights of stairs into your friend's new place


The scale can’t measure the precious memory of you being around long enough to dance with your son or daughter on their wedding day


The scale can’t measure the magic moment of sitting back and savoring the sunset well into your seventies next to the one you love.


==============================================================


While you continue on your wellness journey to living your best life, I hope this showed you what really matters, and took some of the weight off your shoulders today.


And to remember that the gravitational pressure of you on this earth doesn’t measure your SELF-WORTH.
