I don’t weigh myself! I shared this fact last week. So why do I not weigh myself (anymore)!?
The last time I did was in February; and it had been about 6 months before that. It was the most unloving thing I had done in a long time. I had felt “bullied” into doing it. My darling husband didn’t realize his suggestion of me weighing myself for my health journey to track my thyroid health was actually a terrible idea. He thought it would be helpful if I knew a reference point. But he didn’t realize how much of a trigger weighing myself is for the dysmorphia.
I have found freedom and a sort of kinship to two other amazing women who have created a voice to empower other women. BeautyBeyondBone (blogger) and Maddy Moon (blogger, podcast-er, personal development coach). They both provide amazing inspiration and hope to women all over within their given gifts and talents.
They have each shared in the past how they know they don’t want to weigh themselves. They realize how destructive it is for them in their self-love. I am there. I have not seen a conventional/traditional doc in so long that I haven’t had to be weighed. Now I feel empowered and strong enough to know how I would handle the institution if a doc asks me to get on a scale.
I will first ask if it is necessary. I will be upfront about the dysmorphia and would rather not be weighed. If they feel it is necessary I will let them know I will only be weighed if I step on it backwards and I don’t want to see the number nor be told the number.
I AM MORE THAN THAT NUMBER!!!
Some may say well then you haven’t overcome!? Are you really free!? But this is the thing…..when we KNOW ourselves and we continue to journey on our living in God’s will we learn even more about ourselves. Because of the fall we all have an area (or two or more) in our life where we struggle, where we need to be vigilant. I am free from the pain and burden of dysmorphia because I DO AVOID TRIGGERS. I am aware of what could be potential triggers and I don’t tempt the line.
Do you struggle with the number you see on the scale?
Stop weighing your value or worth based on the number you see on the scale. God doesn’t care about that number and neither should you.
Sit with this…..pray about it….journal about it….
Let’s oil up and tap about this!
Using grapefruit essential oil: diffuse or put on your pressure points or even on your tapping fingers…..however you feel grapefruit is going to be most supportive. This is the oil of honoring your body.
Now start your set up:
Karate chop spot: Even though I feel anxious about my weight (or fill in what it is about the scale or your weight that you feel most emotional about, be as specific as possible), I completely and totally love and accept myself. (3 times)
Let your heart guide you through the sequence tapping words of bringing to surface the emotions of it.
When I have checked in after 5 rounds, whenever I tap, I like to do a round of tapping thanking God. So I may end with something like, “Thank you Lord for how beautifully wonderfully made I am!”
Many blessings, prayers, and hugs dear beloved ones!
