Too Hard

Sometimes when you are trying too hard to make something work you need to step back and get some perspective. Often going to my naturopath does that for me. This past time she helped me realize that I am working too hard at this. It is just a number. I have long put too much credence to the number which is why I didn't weigh myself for years. The number, no matter what it was, upset me. Why? Because it was a symbol of all the things I am not - thin, beautiful, perfect. So now, I weigh myself, but I just let the number be what it is - a measure of pounds that I am at that moment. If it is higher then I want then I'll just eat better today and see what it says tomorrow. But I won't worry about it until then.
