Get Off The Scale

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

"It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!” ― Steve Maraboli

For some of you that follow me, you may notice that sometimes I'm big and sometimes I'm small. If I really had poor self esteem, I would have shut my account down after I gained weight again. But I won't be superficial. I am a real human being just like all of you. So I want to be real and I am willing to expose myself and help someone who may be going through social withdraw because of a "short coming." It won't be like this always but you will watch me get back to where I was. Be encouraged!

I am not saying to sit down and do nothing. You will not maintain a healthy lifestyle that that way. Just don't base self worth on that number. I say that fat loss is more important than weight loss. Do you need motivation to get started?

Here at MIF we promote living your best life physically, mentally and emotionally. We also love to jump rope! One of the best exercises on the planet. You can work out your whole body in a little bit of time.

So there you have it! Hopefully, these reasons have inspired you to say F*ck the scale and to start living a healthy lifestyle. We also hope that you give jumpring rope a chance. We have jump ropes available here on our Website, as well as mats, starter sets, and tutorials. Be sure to connect with us on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram for news, events, exclusive workouts, and contests.
