Throwing Away My Scale – Colleen At The Ridge
Disclaimer: This is not my butt, as much as I would like for it to be.
I’ve been working out for a while now, and feeling pretty sassy. My trainer, Annie even told me I should eat more, because I wasn’t losing any more weight. I know that sounds weird, but I was working out pretty hard, and my body was holding on to everything I gave it!
Guess what you should NEVER tell me? To eat more. I take it to heart. I have been a carb eating maniac. Unfortunately, while I am working out more, I am not training for the Olympics and there’s no need to carb load.
Before this realization, I got on the scale and saw the number. It truly put me in a bad mood for the entire day. I gained a few pounds. Therefore, I have decided to get rid of the scale…and cut back a bit on the carbs. I love that the trainers at The Ridge never make you feel guilty, and will discuss nutrition and your diet with you. I talked to Annie about it, and I am going to take my carb addiction one day at a time. I did NOT tell her about eating an entire bag of Twizzlers.
I liked feeling sassy. I know my body isn’t perfect, never will be. I am 41 and have 3 kids. I like to eat, and I REALLY like to drink wine. I have decided the answer is to keep working out with Annie, and forget about how much I weigh.
I am stronger, and feel better than I have in a long time, that’s what I am going to concentrate on. Stupid scale.
