No Weigh

Do you find yourself staring at the scale every day...

Or sometimes multiple times per day, just willing that number to go down or be smaller?

Are you obsessing over what that dial reads?
Do you feel like you've wrapped your self worth up in that silly number?
I hear you!
It's still a constant battle I have with myself.
What's really silly is that weight fluctuates day-to-day, even hour-to-hour.
It's one thing to track your progress, it's an entirely different thing to let a number determine what kind of day we'll have.
We can drive ourselves crazy watching that number go up and down, up and down all day everyday.


Well, one of my health & wellness support groups is doing something really refreshing, it's called "No Weigh October."
Basically, we're banding together to stay off the scale for the month and give ourselves a much needed break from the scale addiction...
Not to mention the worry and stress and FRUSTRATION if that number goes up instead of down.
Here's how it works:
We record our final weight, along with bust, waist, hips, upper thigh and calf of dominant leg, and bicep of dominant arm measurements. Then, we just live our lives the rest of the month, focusing on our fasting, nutrition and activity levels and forgetting about that darn scale.
On October 31st, we will weigh and measure again to check our results.
Here are my starting weigh-in and measurements:
Weight: 131.6
Bust: 33in
Waist: 28 1/4in
Hips: 36in
Upper Thigh: 21in
Calf: 14in
Bicep: 11in
I can't wait to see my results at the end of "No Weigh." It's amazing what you can accomplish with like-minded people and the right support systems.
No weigh we go!
Carly

Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif
