I love this

Whenever I weight myself I get so caught up in the number, when in reality it shouldn’t make a difference. I need to get in this mindset!
Alright so here goes nothing. I know people always told me i didn’t have anything to lose, and I didn’t. But, I felt like i was chubby and so under toned, it was murderous toward my self esteem. The photo on the left is from April in 2011 weighing 123, the right one was taken the other day weighing in at 143. THAT’S 20 POUNDS MORE THAN I USED TO WEIGH. I don’t think I’ve ever fully believed that the scale doesn’t matter until I saw these pictures side by side. It’s so insane that muscle makes that much of a difference. I am just posting this because, I know there’s people out there who stress about the number on the scale. But, you should know that it’s nothing but numbers. From this day on, I’m never weighing myself again. I’m only gonna focus on how i look and feel, because that’s what really matters. Welp, I love you guys. (:
love me some good non-scale victories! you go girl :)
This is fucking fabulous holy shit
This is why I take pictures on the first day of every month. I weigh myself weekly, but only until I get back into my comfortable range. Then I’m going to try to wean myself from the scale completely.
yessss this is what I’m talking about! Love it!
