You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.
Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.
It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!"

Okay so things aren’t divided into weeks on this method, but I wanted to post an update at the end of the first week.
I bought all the supplements I’m supposed to take, and have gotten into the habit of taking them every day. They were very easy to find- I bought mine at walgreens, but noticed them at walmart when I was there as well. Taking the supplements has made a huge difference in my digestion. I feel fuller for longer after I eat, and I just feel like I’m digesting my food better in general, if that makes sense. That also might have to do with all the water I’ve been drinking. I’ve been really mindful about when I’m drinking my water and how much I’m drinking, and it’s made a huge difference especially in my skin. I’ve also been practicing visualization. I think that picturing the way my day is going to go has really made a difference, and I feel like I have a more positive outlook in general.
I do need to focus more on eating more real foods. I eat a lot of organic food and things that I consider real foods, but I haven’t really stepped that up at all. I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight, or really that any big changes have happened yet. But this method is all about gradual changes, so maybe it’s supposed to feel like that.
