What do you do when you’re doing everything you’re supposed to be doing…
… and you’re frightened and confused when you step on this?
Today I stepped on the scale in my own home. Something that hasn’t happened in NINE months. I can tell you with the utmost honestly that I have GAINED 20 pounds in one year. TWENTY!
I feel so lost and confused because I don’t see how that is even possible. I’ve spent all day playing every scenario over in my head, from the scale is broken (it’s not because my kids’ weights are spot on) to maybe I’m “retaining water”. HA!
The truth is, SCALES DON’T LIE (Running of the Reese’s says so) and now I have to deal. Mostly I’m just trying to deal with my emotions and trying to convince myself that a number doesn’t define me! I’m still the same person I was yesterday when I was blissfully unaware of what my “number” is.
