Ignoring the Inches

Wow... when I got rid of the whole scale and tape measure circus, I didn't realize that I was going to trade one show for another.

I'm all about ignoring the inches right now. I know the weight loss game drives me crazy.

I'm also trying to ignore the inches game... which is a bit harder.

We want to see progress.... put work in, get results out. Sometimes our bodies don't work that way. Or sometimes they do, just on a time delay that we aren't prepared to accept.

Health and Well-Being

Although this is over 6 minutes, I think it is a worthwhile view for those of us who struggle with body image and keeping our perspective. My favorite quote?

At 4:39 when she says, "If we could get people to focus more on their own health and well-being, I think everything would just become secondary to that."


Cheers to focusing on health and well-being in 2014. (And to keeping my butt off the scale and away from the darn measuring tape....)
