Our Journey's are more than a number - Group talk week commencing 7th February 2022.


When standing on the scales whether the bathroom, chemist, doctors, hospital or here, they only show you a snapshot number at that point of time. They give you your relationship between you and gravity.


That moment can bring delight, contentment and gratification, but it can also bring misery, disappointment, upset and unhappiness.


Your emotions can motivate, drive and inspire your journey but they can also discourage, hinder, prevent and dissuade our continuance of our journey's, it's at these times where Non Scale Victories change your focus away from that snapshot number to the bigger picture.


It doesn't matter where you are along your journey i.e. the beginning, middle, goal or maintaining, Non Scale Victories are so very important and you should take time to consider paying attention to them along your journey.
