Do you hate the scale?🙈
If I asked you for a one-word feeling about the scale I’ll bet it could be something like:
If you have any of those feelings then I am going to teach you how to get over scale drama for good!
When I work with clients one-on-one who have scale drama, the first thing I ask is why. Why do you feel frustrated, mad, upset? You think it’s because you’re doing everything right but the scale isn’t moving, so your anger is justified, right? But that’s actually not it…
What creates your feeling about anything is your thinking. What is the thought you have before you feel frustrated? Is it something like:
❇️ This isn’t working
❇️ I’ll never lose weight
❇️ I failed again!
All of these BS thoughts are what you should hate- not the scale. The scale is totally neutral. It’s a data point. It’s a measurement tool. Do you have drama over a measuring cup? Do you have drama over a yard stick? Of course not because your thoughts about them are totally neutral.
When you create thoughts about the scale, ask yourself, “Is that thought serving me in any way?” If the thought is like those above, then let me help you with the answer: NO! It’s not!
Negative thoughts produce negative results.
Positive thoughts produce positive results.
You just have to decide what you want to choose.
Here’s how it works:
A person who thinks thoughts like:
❇️ I’m committed to getting results
❇️ I’ll keep trying regardless of how long this takes
❇️ I’m willing to take consistent action until I get results
Will ultimately get great results for two reasons.
1: They are choosing results-producing thoughts, and
2: When they choose results-producing thoughts, they feel feelings that inspire them to take the actions required to produce results.
When you are stuck in the loop of BS, negative thinking OF COURSE you aren’t getting the result you want because you are willing your thoughts into reality, or essentially creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Next time you get on the scale, notice your thought.
You get to decide in that moment if you want to choose a result-producing thought or not.
If you want to create new results, and need help getting there, please reach out to me so we can talk about how to take this work to the next level.
Have a great day everyone.
