ONE of the most common things people in our Slimpod Community on Facebook raise with me is their relationship with the weighing scales. One lady asked if I could help her to understand more about the effect the scales have on her emotions because she thinks they’re partly to blame for her self-sabotage. As this is one of my favourite subjects, I’m more than happy to oblige!
In this video I explain how that piece of metal in the bathroom can actually control your emotions, making you feel happy or sad, and I discuss how a lot of people are obsessed with weighing themselves.
So after you’ve watched the video, here’s your task for this week. Take some time out to think about your relationship with the scales. Does it have a positive impact on your daily life? When you hop on and off does it always empower you to keep your weight in control? If so, then that’s absolutely wonderful and continue to do what you’re doing!
However, if as a result of hopping on the scales you eat to make yourself feel better or give up your healthy eating because you think there’s no hope and you’re a failure, then this is no good and it needs to stop because your relationship with the scales is destructive emotionally and it’s helping you to self-sabotage.
Drop me a comment below and tell me about your relationship with the scales. Does it make you feel good or bad?
