January is all about resolutions, right? How many thousands make their weight (as in losing it) a goal for the year? I know I do. Every. Single. Year. And how many of us fall off the wagon by the end of February, at least a little? Again, likely thousands. That elusive “perfect” number on the scale can be the source of so much pleasure; but for most, I’m betting pain is the more common feeling.
I am one of those people who (despite being pretty fit, with weight well within the normal range), is kind of obsessed with the number on the scale. It irks even my trainer when it’s at the lower end, and I’m still focused on making it lower. So when Alyson of The Average Girl’s Guide approached Erika of Style Activist and me about making February a month focused on health—not that number—I thought, I need this. Especially since after finishing my third Whole30, my results aren’t quite what I got from my first Whole30, but more about that later.
We hope you’ll join us in stepping away from the scale this month, and visit all our blogs for posts on fitness, healthy eating, and real-life body talk. Be sure to leave a comment or tweet us @AvgGirlsGuide, @StyleActivist, or @gritandglamour if you have questions or want to share your thoughts.
If I can do it, you can. Who’s in?
