It’s Just A Number

It’s take a while for my accountant-brain to figure it out, but the number on the scale is just one measure.  One quantitative measure.  Like the number of cm/inches lost.

But it’s not just the quantitative that matters – the qualitative factors count just as much (if not more!).

What do I mean?  If you can record it with a number, it’s quantitative.  You can quantify it.

If it’s harder to measure, like the mood boost after exercise, it’s qualitative.  From my experience, it’s these things that make these life changes worthwhile.

  1. Hardest thing to learn – and relearn – and learn again. Every time I think I’ve got it, I get reminded that that scale is just one piece and that I give it too much value most of the time. Lovely pic!
