You Are More Than A Number On A Scale

This month we are looking to help 2000 people drop a jean size on our diet plan!  At the new you plan we are totally and utterly devoted to helping people to lose weight, feel great and create a new healthy happy lifestyle!  Getting focused on losing weight is a positive thing, but it has to be in the context of you improving your health and your life.  You need to love and value yourself first.

The scales and your weight, do not tell you how amazing you are at being a mum, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a dad, a son, an uncle or an aunt.  They don’t say how much you kick ass in your career or hobbies, or how kind and caring and loving you are.  They don’t say how much you love animals, or support charities or your church.

I have experienced two very hard pregnancies that made me balloon up and experience the heart ache of being very obese.  But am I less of a person because I am over weight? NO.  I am not.  And I want to make sure that today, you realise that YOU ARE MORE THAN A NUMBER ON THE SCALE.

The scales represent just your weight.  We all want to slim and healthy, and to have good energy, self esteem and stylish clothes.  We all want to be comfortable and confident in social situations.  Wanting to lose weight is a positive thing as it helps us to improve the quality of our life and our health.  But just because we are overweight, does not mean that we are worth less as people!!  Look upon yourself with respect… YOU ARE AMAZING… you are on the right road, and you will get to your goal.  The more you learn to love and value yourself on this journey the easier and more enjoyable this journey will be!

It is SO IMPORTANT to feel good about yourself today, and do not let your weight equal your value.  YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN A NUMBER ON THE SCALES.  The more you realise this, the more you appreciate the value you bring to this world and the people that love you, the easier it will be for you to continue on your weight loss journey.

    The scales is definitely just a number. The more weight I’ve loss the less obsessed I’ve been with the scales because now the victories come from being able to look in the mirror and like what I see. It’s about being able to go shopping and picking out nice clothes…and not from the back of the rack where the largest sizes are kept. It’s about being able to run around & play with my kids. It’s about actually looking forward to going out and not feeling insecure about my size.
    I like myself again. No more self loathing. No more feeling ashamed. No more hiding away from society ;)
    I get compliments now on how well I look from people… The scales don’t tell me that lol!

    I will go to the enthe degree to help people if I can.
    I have been all sizes from a 10 to a 28 so GET IT….we are STILL the same person…no matter the body suit we’re wearing.
    I am blessed to be able to be all of the above with the wonderful people I have in my life to share this journey
    I am grateful to having discovered NY as it has given me the tools to take control of my weight for the first time in my life.
    oops……blowing my own trumpet here but yes we are more than a number on the scales or the number on a clothes label…..luckily for me I married a man who loved me for ME I was at least 16st when we met……now as the weight is coming off feeling a bit more confident on his arm, albeit he always made me feel beautiful…..it’s hard and I think it is down to the individual what weight or size YOU are comfortable with…..good luck everyone today….as we all know…it’s one meal and one day at a time on this journey, and how lucky are we to have this amazing wee family of support…..<3 <3 <3
