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
Not the cutest picture on the right but that was from one of my very first workout videos 9 months ago
Wearing the same tank top a few days ago and I noticed how loose it was .
It use to feel tight and I hated that it showed my big belly and rolls but it’s what I had at the time .
Some days when I’m obsessed with that number on the scale I get discouraged and down on myself because I’m stuck at a certain number and it’s not moving down or I’m not the weight I want to be which is like 10 lbs lighter .
It took me 9 months to lose 10lbs and I’m determined to not take another 9 to lose 10 more .
I still want to lose at a healthy rate but I know if I had eaten better in the last 9 months that I could have lost more .
I’m trying not to become obsessed with that stupid scale so non-scale victories like this help me to stay focused...honestly it doesn’t turn my mood around 💯 but it does help a little .
I’m trying, I’m doing it, I’m here for myself everyday, I’m putting in the work, I’m staying on track as much as possible with my nutrition (because no one is perfect) and I’m trying to stay positive .

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......

My biggest struggle... the treacherous scale! Well, here’s to day one starting out a new day and saying adieu to yesterday.
Happy to have a loss this week! I have to turn it up in the exercise department tho. Hoping for 2lbs next week
CONFESSION TIME- So if you have been following me since I started this page you know I HATE SCALES. 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️I have always had a phobia about the numbers ( I’m sure I am not alone) we know we are SO much more than a number on a scale but yet it’s NECESSARY to figure out where you are in terms of your calorie brackets. Well I braved it out and now I have my numbers to start from. We all have to start somewhere!
I knew they would be high, but I am not beating myself up! It’s not how often you fall but if you keep picking yourself up! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
Anyway my cat seemed more excited about the scale than I did!!
OH HOT DAMN, THIS IS MY JAM 🎶 🤩🤸🏻♀️ This is probably the fifth or sixth time that I’ve done my 3 day detox 🌱💨. I don’t do it solely to lose weight or inches ((although it doesn’t hurt)). I do it to literally refresh my body and my mind. 🙏🏼🧘♀️ And DAMN, do I feel refreshed.
After two weeks of drinking too much wine, eating too much sugar, and feeling so damn bloated, I knew this cleanse was exactly what I needed to kickstart the new year.... I’m back to square one baby...
Let me just say, these numbers blew me away 😳 and are A LITTLE HIGHER than the numbers I usually see after this cleanse.👆🏻 But, it just goes to show to you how RIDICULOUS the scale is when you’re puffy and 💯 off your A-game. #HateTheScale
So now that that’s over, I’m ready to make 2018 my B!+@#! Whose with me?! 🙋🏻♀️
Something very exciting has happened and I have the opportunity to share it with a select few people!! 🙌
I was invited to be a part of a workout test group for a new workout program being released next month!
If you don’t know what this is, it is a private group that is being ran by the amazing celebrity fitness trainer that has created the programs 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, Country Heat, Hammer and Chisel, and now a new program 80 Day Obsession. 🤩🤩So yes I am beyond excited to have been given this opportunity! 🤩🤩 Her programs 😅and nutrition 🍏plans have done wonders for me and so many other ladies on my team.
So if you are ready to get off your butt 🍑, quit with the excuses 🙅♀️,and ready to really commit and see results, this test group is just what you need!!! 🔥
It will run from January 15- April 15, it will get you ready for those summer 🌴vacations early, so you are not running around last minute trying to fit into that bikini 👙. ⭐️Remember⭐️ I can only have a few of you join me. So let’s start this New Years 🎉off together and right so that we are in the best shape by April!
Serious inquires only, and only open to those who are not working with a coach, or are a coach currently. 🦄If you are READY for some changes in your life, drop your favorite emoji below and I’ll get you all the details 🦋
Rifling through some photos today and came across these two.
This is why I hate that bloody scale. 5 pounds in the difference, and would you believe it’s the picture on the right that is heavier?!? Huge thank you to both Sagi and Autumn for the change in mindset and the motivation to keep on going!

Never miss a Monday but I failed this week. I took the kiddos to do stuff Monday and yesterday but hit the gym hard today doing muscle pump and zumba, I feel energized. I hate the way I feel when I miss my workouts, they have become my me time, my challenge myself and therapy time (I can often clear my thoughts of all the clutter and negativity and leave feeling like a bad ass!) Thanks to my Zumba ladies for making workouts such a joy!

Today while getting ready for my workout I had to take a double take in the mirror. I actually look slimmer and to think I was disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning.
Stagnant! Okay I know we ALL hate the scale!! Scale is evil!!! Gotcha. But I'm not happy right now because I have been at this same number for a month!!! I have a little less than two months to my next goal (180 lbs), and right now that feels impossible!!! Next week I'm doing measurements, but I'm not happy about that either. So... I don't know what to do. Starve? Keto? I hate food right now.
