Every morning.  Every single morning.

I step on a scale.  I see a number. 

I allow the number to determine my mood.  My self-esteem.  My self-worth. 

It is a number.  A number with too much power.

I cannot do it anymore.  I will not do it anymore. 

It is time to let go.

I am turning 40. 

I want to like me.  

 I want to be strong and happy with my body. 

It is time for me to accept that I have the power.

Not a number.

Goodbye, scale. 

It is my turn.


  1. Amen sister!!! I hope you can have the will to follow through because it is a freeing feeling... to not be bound by the scale. Being healthy is one thing, but the scale isn't a measure of "healthiness." However, your mood, drive, motivation and overal HAPPINESS is a better indicator of your overall health!!!

  2. Could not have said it better ladies.


What say ye?
