I avoided the scale for like a full year because the number that you see doesn’t matter; what mattered for me was how I felt in the clothes that I was wearing and how I physically felt about myself.Amanda Batula on her weight loss.
Amanda further reveals,
My weight fluctuates every single day I go up and down 5 – 10 lbs throughout the year but as long as your favorite pair of jeans fit that’s the end goal so work on maintaining that and not the number on the scale.Amanda Batula on her weight loss.
