Out running errands in the city. Doctor appointment went great. Was released and just keeping a watch on everything. Had to step on the scale 🙄 (the only time I do now) and I am down 3 lbs. Might not seem like alot, but I have gained alot of muscle mass over the last couple weeks. .
Had a healthier lunch and limited myself on the Bread intake. But, still working on water intake, so got me water for the drive back. I am on #5
for the day 👏 this is on my goal list. .
Will be making my fav spot for homemade ice cream 😋
It’s a love-hate relationship with this thing. And no, I wasn’t up this week. I was actually down 4lbs from last week. I was shocked though to see the scale down this week. I’ve felt like I’ve gained this week, felt bloated, bigger. So I was pleasantly surprised. That makes a total of 21lbs I just can’t tell it yet exactly!! I’m glad to see the numbers going down but I’m ready to feel the difference!
Anyone have this love-hate relationship with the scale? Don't define your self worth with a silly number. I know this can make or break someone's day each morning. Try weighing once a week. If you're driven to weigh yourself daily, take an average for the week. Everything from water retention to the humidity in the weather can make your weight fluctuate.⠀

Little over 2 weeks.. Meal prepping and not a single cheat.. Working out 6 days a week..tons water and getting sleep.. How much does the scale say I lost.. 0! Not 1 oz.. Thankfully I was smart enough to measure.. 1.5 inches off waist, 1 off hips and almost 1 to each thunder thigh.. I hate the scale! But love my measuring tape!
I’m too obsessed with it. It literally gauges my moods and that’s some bullshit. I d gained 2 pounds since last week and have done nothing different than weight train which I know can affect weight, but then in my head I’m like fuck weight training. Meanwhile I’m liking the results I’m seeing so this scale needs to go for a bit. I step on it daily knowing I shouldn’t. I’d like to hide it for a month, but I’ll start at a week and see how it goes. Argh #weightlossjourney #scale #hatethescale #whyamigainingweight
So this is why I get soooooo confused these photos are only 1 day apart, yesterday top and today bottom. Today I had a higher water % and higher muscle % but a lower body fat %. This is a 0.8kg difference, just goes to show that the best way to judge it is with measurements. My weight fluctuates so much I'm constantly battling with the scales!!!!! The 1 thing I know for sure is that life's too short to get upset about things like the scales......instead live to the best of your ability and without regrets, have that piece of cake and enjoy it and do what makes you HAPPY!!!! Whatever shape, size, colour, sex, religeon you are......own it, it's yours!!!! #hatethescale #weightlossjourney #myweightlossjourney #heapthie #happier #livethelifeyoulove #itsallaboutbalance #iammyworstcritic
We are our own worst critic! I am guilty of it too. I look in the mirror and can find 10 things negative before I can point out one thing positive. I always tell the ladies on my team the importance of taking photos when they start their journey because the scale can be your worst enemy at times.
I felt I wasn’t making the progress I wanted, the scale hasn’t been moving much and I’ve been working my butt off with my workouts and was getting a little frustrated. On the left was day 1 of this program, and the picture on the right is today, day 34, with only a 2.5 pound difference.
I wouldn’t stay on track as much as I do if it weren’t for my amazing team of ladies and our accountability groups. I am opening up 5 more spots for the remainder of this month. If you want to join in with us, leave me a comment below!
If you've ever worked with me....you know I friggin hate the scale! Mostly because that fluctuating number is so inaccurate, but also because I've seen it take people from feeling great about themselves, to completely tearing them down.

Drum 🥁 Roll Please...... and the result are I LOST 0.0 LBS!!!🤭🤔 SAY WHAT?!?!? That’s right. My weight has remained the same. I started at 146 Day 1. I lost 3lbs at the end of Phase 1. I just completed Phase 2 on Sunday and my weight is back to 146lbs. How crazy is that? So I have a hate hate relationship with the scale. Ya know that lying little piece of plastic in my bathroom. I have felt SO STRONG 💪🏻 I have more stamina in my workouts, my nutrition has been on point and I have had SO MANY NSV’s. But I stepped on the scale and saw my number and felt like crap 💩 here I have been killing it, feeling great 👍 seeing so many results and that little number brought me down 😨 like all day Sunday was in a funk! I kept looking at these pictures not able to compute HOW what I am seeing in these pics and what I am seeing on the scale are not jiving. By that evening I was still all blah. I ran a bath 🛀 and marinated in my thoughts good and bad. I got out and looked at these pics again and realized IT DOESN’T FREAKING MATTER what the scale says! I am SEEING RESULTS, I am going down in clothe sizes, I am feeling Strong 💪🏻 lifting heavier and feeling mentally SO MUCH STRONGER in this 50 days than I have with any other program I have done. I am Obsessed with my results, I am obsessed with becoming the BEST version of ME I can, I am obsessed with empowering other other people to do the same! #ditchthescale #hatethescale #obssesed #teamac @autumncalabrese #results #thisworks #itworksifyouwork #lbs #beststrong #beyourself #loveyourself #mindset #nsv
In light of transformation Tuesday, I thought I would share a little something with you all... I’m struggling today- I had my husband hide my scale AGAIN this morning. I’m to the point where I weigh myself almost every hour. After I eat, sleep, drink, go to the bathroom, workout, shower, etc. I’ll even weigh myself at 3 am when I’m up with our baby... I’ve become obsessed with the number and It’s becoming a huge problem for me mentally. I look at these pictures side by side and I am sooo proud. Left side>> my baby is four months old and I’m still in maternity pants because that’s all that fits. Right side >> just a couple months later and I’m in SHORTS. But then when I step on the scale, all the pride from my progress slips away. 70% of my brain knows this is obnoxious and knows I am doing an amazing job and that these things don’t happen over night. But then the other 30% chimes in and reminds me that I’m still not in my favorite pair of jeans and That I’m still 30 lbs away from my goal. I felt AMAZING after my workout this morning. Like a total bad ass. But then I wasted an hour of my life searching for that stupid scale because my mind has convinced itself that the number on the scale is what determines my worth. I am super thankful that my husband was so good at hiding the scale lol but I’m also so thankful for my team who is constantly reminding me that I am so much more than that number.. someday I WILL get to the point where I no longer feel the need to weigh myself. I WILL get to the point where a number will not define me or determine my worth... but until then I will continue to seek strength from my team and dive into personal development.. because my health journey is just as much a mental and emotional transformation as it is a physical one. #struggle #transformation #victimofthescale #myfitnessjourney #healthier #happier #goals #mentalgains #progress #worthy #personaldevelopment #watchmegrow #hatethescale #loveyourself
Biggest weight loss I’ve seen in over a year. Started working out and tracking in early January at 188lbs. Started liquids during the day on Tuesday. Again for Wednesday. Yesterday, got super sick and actually ate food. Now down a couple of pounds but I’m home sick and eating everything in sight. Guessing this weight will go back up. But it’s fun while it lasted. #wls #vsg #regain #hatethescale
Non-Scale Victories are the best part of the journey!
Because we all know the scale is a hater😡😡
Day 21/80 of my new program and I haven't lost a single pound.🙄🙄🙄 I could quit. But I'll never see that number on the scale if I give up. It's not easy to push through sometimes but I can do hard things. I couldn't do this move 3 weeks ago. Proof that I'm stronger than I was on Day 1.💪 Every single day is a small victory.❤️ Giving up wouldn't be fair to that girl I was 21 days ago.
So I keep moving forward......

Happy to have a loss this week! I have to turn it up in the exercise department tho. Hoping for 2lbs next week
