It’s really hard for my clients to not focus on the scale. It’s an easy number to follow and measure. Except we actually can’t directly control it. We can only indirectly control it with behaviors. So maybe instead of making a weight your primary goal, why not pick the behaviors that will affect the scale? This is behavior versus outcome goal choosing.
Yes!! It’s so hard to change your mindset and ignore the diet culture that is continually pushed upon us. A lot of my clients still find themselves focusing on the number on the scale BUT my clients say they know that working out makes me feel strong af and also boosts their health and that is one of the most important factors.
