These numbers do not define you. Are you hearing me on that? You need to hear me. You are not defined by a number on a scale. It is a number. It does not reflect you as a whole. It does not reflect you as a person, as a woman, or as a child of God.
On Tuesday, I issued a challenge on my Periscope broadcast. I challenged my viewers to stay off the scale for the entire month of February. I challenged them to just spend the month working on fitness, making healthy food choices, and loving who they are inside. I challenged them to let go of that number that plagues them.
Let it go!
Why would I issue such a challenge?
Because health is not measured entirely in a number. Because you can start a fitness program and GAIN weight due to building muscle. And because we are women and our bodies go through cycles and water retention is a real thing.
And... most importantly... because the depression that occurs in the minds and hearts of countless women over a number is something that I want to stop.
So I encourage you, dear readers, to hear what I am saying and to understand that your value and worth is not defined on the scale. You are more. You are so much more. For the rest of this month, stay off the scale. Put it away where you won't see it. Allow yourself to love the person you are without berating your efforts because of something you stepped on in the bathroom.
