Weighing ourselves is a common thing that we all likely do.

We tend to weigh ourselves as we exit the bathroom, enter our bedrooms, or even just before we leave the house.

Instead of placing the number in your mind, I am going to give you an alternative for ONE week.

I am challenging you to go one full week without weighing yourself.

Take The Challenge

Use this week to instead focus on the successes that you experienced (going to the gym, eating a banana instead of cookies, sleeping an extra hour, drinking several cups of water).

Remove all negativity: Remove your thoughts about how many pounds you want to lose, the areas of your body you are unhappy with and, overall, any thing that brings you stress or unhappiness.

Too often we place our focus on what we did not do, what we have done wrong or what we still need to do — instead of all of the wonderful things WE DID DO!

These are all negative thoughts that poison the mind and prevent improvement.

These thoughts weigh you down, bring you stress and aggravation, prevent you from being happy — and decrease you opportunity for success.

Therefore, use the next week to detox your negative thoughts (including the number on the scale) and instead begin taken steps to learn to love yourself.

Love yourself for all of the wonderful things you have accomplished, done correctly, succeeded in, and so forth 🙂 I am sure there are a TON, but you have overshadowed them on all that you did not do right. Stop that!! ❤

Love yourself

Those few minutes that you would have spent weighing yourself, you can instead look in the mirror and remind yourself of you beautiful or handsome you are.

This sounds silly, but it is really nice to hear from yourself. The more you tell yourself how much you truly do love yourself, the more you will believe it and then express it in your actions and behaviors.

Loving yourself expresses confidence, which allows you to be positive, thus happier and overall successful in all that you do. 

Try this one week challenge and take note of the changes that you feel each day.

You will be very surprised of how much this small change will impact your life!!
