My first time on the scale in years

My first time on the scale in years

✍️My first time on the scale in years ✍️

If you have been following us for a while, you would know I don't use the scale numbers to track my progress. Reasons are-

- I found it extremely stressful that my mind is affected by what the number is showing. It has never been a motivating tool for me
- My weight can fluctuate up to 4kgs overnight (Yup, you read this right). If I have a high carb day, my body retain so much more fluid than usual.
-My ovulation cycle affects my weight up to 5kgs in 2 days. Whenever I approach my ovulation cycle, my body retain more fluid as bloating kicks in
-Lack of sleep and stress can affects my weight significantly as well
- I used to obsess to be skinny, I wasn't healthy and happy. I wanted to be my goal weight, 45kgs (I am 167cm tall). I was mentally and physically ill. I would starve myself if I had a big meal the day before. I didn't see any progress and rely solely on those scale numbers to tell me if I am doing something right
- I now do not see that numbers determine my progress. I am leaner, but heavier now. I ask now, what's the purpose on those numbers?
- Everyone can have very different views on those numbers. People thatare taller will often weight more compared to a petite size female. Does that mean we judge and compare our bodies harshly against another?

The list goes on.....

I want to put this post up because by the BMI scale (I know not a good scale to use) I borderline the healthy range. If you knew me in real life you would never think how heavy I am. So what's more important? Those numbers on the scale? Or feeling good, healthy, have more energy to do things you enjoy, nourish your body with food that benefits your health?
Those numbers on the scale only tell you all your hard work is pretty pointless if heaven forbid you gain a kg or two because you had a big meal? Bare in mind, you cannot and will not gain 1kg of fat overnight.

For those who are curious, the scale says I am 69kg last night and this morning is 66kg😆😆😆Not that I give a 💩💩💩 now, but I would be stressed for ages if this happened 4 years ago.

Don't let any type of numbers tells you that you are not giving your best, other than feeling 10 out of 10 💖
