I know you think that stepping on the scale is giving you control over your body and your food intake. But what if I told you that stepping on the scale is the very thing that is making you out of control?
It goes a little something like this:
1 - You step on the scale
2 - If the number is higher than desired, you eat less. If the number is lower than expected you continue eating less to “continue your progress”
3 - Your food intake in controlled by the number, not your intuition or your body’s actual needs
4 - The restriction is unsustainable leading to chronic episodes of overeating
5 - anxiety takes over and you step on the scale again repeating numbers 1-4
I know you think that stepping on the scale is going to one day be the thing that connects you with your body.
I promise you, it will never be the tool that does that for you. In fact it is the very tool that is preventing you from connecting with your body.
I know it’s scary to think about ditching the scale. And it’s a very normal human reaction to want to ease the anxiety right away. And you may feel a relief temporarily when you step on the scale but continuing to step on the scale is just deepening the void of this cycle. The only way out is to stop stepping on the scale.
Only then does the journey of reconnecting with your body and making peace with food become possible.
Good news for you, you don’t have to try this alone!
