Hey hey heyy ya’ll! I feel like self confidence and anti-ED posts are really helpful. Not only for all you guys, but for me as well. Today, I wanted to talk about the scale. The notorious thing that many girls rely on day after day. Not gonna lie, I relied on that stupid thing too. I would weigh myself 2, 3, 4 times a day. And every time, it would make me cry. So why did I keep on using it? Because the stupid ED was in control. So I wanted to talk to you guys about how to let go of the scale and just live life. Because you know what….LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.
I haven’t weighed myself in about a year (partly because my parents hid the scale and partly because I could care less). And guess what? I have absolutely zero desire to do so anytime soon. As long as my clothes still fit and I feel good, then I’m happy! When I go to a doctor’s appointment, I asked to get weighed “blind.” That means that I go onto the scale backwards and I do not see the number. They are totally fine with that and I end up being happier too.
One day, about three months ago, I was looking in my sister’s room for a shirt. In the middle of my search, I found the scale. I had two options: let the ED take over and weigh myself or say, screw you ED and walk away. You know what I did? I walked away…take that ED! At that point, I knew that I was in control of the ED. I am so much more strong than that stupid ED will ever be.
Whenever I have to fill out some sort of paperwork with my weight, I just write what’s on my drivers license. I might be more, I might be less. But you know what? Screw it. I feel good. That’s all I care about.
P.S. I don’t know if any of you guys noticed but when I refer to the ED, I call it the ED. Not my ED. Because guess what? I am better than it will ever be.
I know that all I have said it easier said than done but you can achieve it over time. I promise. And I don’t break a promise.
