Breaking up a bad relationship is never easy. When that relationship is dominating your life and making you miserable daily, it’s also very difficult to terminate that relationship. Today, I want to tell you about one of our AlaskaFit family members who recently ended a terrible relationship and inspire you to do the same.
“Amie” (not her real name) came to see us about 6 months ago because she was feeling awful. The scale was creeping up, she had no energy and overall just felt flabby and old.
She started in our Fit program and began meeting regularly with our Nutrition Coaches. It was in these meetings that she revealed her painful relationship.
The relationship wasn’t with a person. Amie’s relationship with her scale was dominating and terrorizing her life. She would wake up in the morning, feel great, step on the scale and when it didn’t say what she thought it should she would fall apart. There would be tears, name-calling, berating herself for not being where she thought she should be. It was truly awful.
The worst part is she thought this was “normal.” Don’t all women torture themselves because of the scale?
The answer is no…they don’t. Many of us do, but the scale should not control your moods, thoughts and your self-worth.
Through her nutrition coaching meetings she learned that the scale is not the judge of who she is as a person. The scale cannot pronounce her a failure and it was in her power to ditch this stress from her life entirely. She learned the strategies to propel her to successfully achieving her goals. She learned new ways to measure success.
This change of mindset is a HUGE accomplishment! And it is SO much more important than anything the scale can tell her. We like to call her results “Getting into Life” results.
Through our Fit classes, she is stronger, her “flabby spots” are tightened up, she has more energy and confidence. She now loves her strong, fit body.
