Lesson 5: Re-evaluating the Role of Weight and Scales in Your Health Journey
In this lesson, we will explore the idea of re-evaluating the role of weight and scales in your health journey. Many people have a strong attachment to their weight and often rely on scales to measure progress. However, it may be beneficial to question this approach and consider alternative methods of assessing your overall well-being.
1. Reflect on your relationship with weight: Take some time to reflect on your current relationship with weight and scales. Ask yourself questions such as: Do I feel obsessed with the number on the scale? Does my self-worth depend on my weight? Am I constantly chasing a certain number? Understanding your mindset and emotions surrounding weight is essential to making a change.
2. Understand the limitations of weight as a measure of health: Recognize that weight is just one factor in determining overall health. It does not provide a comprehensive picture of your well-being or indicate your body composition, muscle mass, or overall fitness level. Focusing solely on weight can be misleading and may not accurately reflect changes in your body.
3. Shift the focus to health and well-being: Instead of fixating on weight, shift your focus to overall health and well-being. Consider other aspects of your health journey, such as your energy levels, strength, flexibility, mood, and quality of life. Pay attention to how you feel physically and emotionally, rather than being solely concerned with a number on the scale.
4. Explore alternative measures of progress: There are several alternative ways to measure progress that can give you a more holistic view of your health journey. Some examples include body measurements (such as waist circumference or hip-to-waist ratio), physical fitness assessments, how your clothes fit, improvements in strength or endurance, and changes in body composition (such as decreased body fat percentage or increased muscle mass).
5. Set goals focused on habits and behaviours: Shift your goal-setting approach from weight-related goals to habits and behaviours that support a healthy lifestyle. Instead of aiming for a certain weight, focus on goals such as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and practicing self-care. By focusing on sustainable habits, you are more likely to achieve long-term health and well-being.
Consider how much importance you place on the number on the scale and whether it is truly serving your overall well-being.
Start shifting your focus towards health, well-being, and sustainable habits that support a healthy lifestyle.
Explore alternative measures of progress and seek support if needed as you continue on your health journey.
Remember, the goal is to prioritise your overall well-being, rather than a specific number on the scale.
