I hit a number on the scale that I never wanted to see again a few days ago. I have been fixiated on that number ever since. I remember this number from my past. I remember squealing in delight seeing the number on the scale and thinking how far I had come. I recall buying a new pair of jeans and being very excited ablut the smaller size. Fast forward to this week and the same number has had me in tears. I had passed this point, right? This was supposed to be history never to be revisited.
What has changed? The number is the same. My perspective, however, is much different. What i have realized is that I have a choice. I can continue to berate myself about taking a detour in my weight loss journey or I can choose to resume the journey with confidence that my today doesnt have to be my forever and know that with the right choices I can lose the weight. The number on the scale doesnt define me. Its just a number.
