You are more than a number on a scale. A number has nothing to do with who you are as a person. It is in no way a reflection of who you are and all of what you have to offer. That’s why it is important that you not allow it to dictate your happiness. A number is just a number. Instead of focusing and obsessing on the scale, focus on how you feel and ensure that you are healthy and happy.
Coincidentally, being at peace with yourself will help you to lean out without you feeling stressed out about it. It’s important that you take care of yourself not because you have to, but because you want to, because it’s what’s right for you. When you do this, you ultimately shed the excess wait because you already possess behaviors that are conducive to you being lean and healthy.
Always remember that regardless of whether you have a few extra pounds on or off, you are worthy of your own self-love. You are worthy of the best. That’s why it’s important that you be your top priority. This is what is natural and normal.
