Goodbye Scale, Hello Health

In case you didn't read my last post, I have decided to challenge myself to a 30 Days, 30 Reasons, No-Scale Challenge.  Starting tomorrow I will not step on my scale for 30 days.

Instead I am going to spend the next month focusing on all of the many reasons for exercising and eating right that have nothing to do with my weight or how I look.  I'm also going to spend a lot of time trying to change the way I look at my weight and my appearance, and the way it impacts my life.

Tomorrow morning I will hand the scale to my husband to hide from me, and I will post my first of 30 Reasons for taking care of myself.  I hope that you, my friends, will come along for the ride and help me out.  It's not easy to change 36 years of believing that how I look, how much I weigh, and what size I am in some way define or limit me.  It's not easy to stop believing that the goal of exercise should ultimately be a smaller number on the scale rather than what really matters - a healthy, happy life.  But I am hoping that I can come out of the next 30 days not only with a healthier body, but with a healthier outlook on life too.

So, here goes....goodbye scale!!!
