I asked him to hide the scale!

As I continue on this journey of  lifestyle change, I find some really interesting lessons of life, obsessions, self control and many more.

A few weeks ago I asked my husband to take away the scale and hide it from me, like I vowed I won't look for it no matter what. Wondering why I did that? Well here's the answer: I was literally on that thing every hour. First thing I did when I woke up, mid day and evening, several times in between. It was drivin me carazzy y'all.  I didn't like what I was turning into. I picked it at once, sought help and I'm good now. On the first day I looked for it though🙈🙈🙈. He just looked at me and said,

      "well, we only go check on that weight once a week and we do it at the hospital, not here!".

I couldn't believe him! I just know one thing though, he's strong...
I'm settling in with the idea 2 weeks later, I keep grinding, going to the gym and working on my body and the food I eat. It works, no need to obsess over the scale figures.

I'm learning so much about me and life in general in this whole process. At times we are desperate to see changes, we want them real quick, we dread going through the whole process to make lasting changes. We dread the taste of vegetables and just meat, we struggle to learn to love the new path we're on. Soon, it won't be new, it will be a norm. We learnt to love junk foods  and snacks, we can unlearn and reprogram the new into our systems. We learnt negativity, fear, doubt and all sorts of things that are against us,  we can reverse all that and embrace the new and better!

Keep going, you can do it.
