Why you need to stop stepping on the scale multiple times per day 👇
I will admit 🙋♀️ .....
when I was at the height of my anorexia and bulimia, I would step on the scale atleast 10x per day.
Each time that I did, it affected my mental health in a negative way resulting in increased self hate.
How could I let a simple number affect me so badly?
Because I allowed that number to define my self worth. .
6 years later, I am on the mend.
I became informed, educated and found some inner peace.
It is my mission to show others that there is a a better way to be happy, informed, empowered and most importantly CONFIDENT in their own skin. .
You should only step on the scale first thing in the am before you have eaten/drank and after you pee/poo.
Anything after that, is inaccurate. ❌
So please stop stop stop hurting yourself by stepping on the scale numerous times per day. There is NO logical or scientific reason for that.
As you can see, my night photo is clearly different.
I am “up 4lbs” - I KNOW this is not fat as that would be physically impossible for me to do in one day. .
How is this possible? 👇.
🖤 I drank atleast 11L of water yesterday because it was hot as a mother and I did more cardio yesterday then I normally do. Water occupies volume - which creates “weight” not fat. .
🖤I ate - lots of delicious food. That food also occupies space in my belly which causes “weight” not fat. .
🖤Medications - i just recently switched up my birth control. I find that I am holding more water because it. This is Normal.
Same thing will happen with antibiotics if you find yourself on them. Don’t stress - that’s just water not fat. .
🖤Bowel Movements- because I have been changing the macros of my diet so frequently (due to my upcoming fitness show), my BMs have been sporadic at best (TMI - sorry, but it’s all relevant)
Butt, (lol) if you haven’t pooped all day then you can expect your weight to reflect that. 💩
Be kind to yourself friends #fuckthescale .
