Live It Naturally Well

February 2023

Mental Weight

"A scale is the fastest way I know to add 20 pounds ...

to your mind."

  • Amy Kramer



It's been a couple months but I finally stepped on the scale the other day.

Like you, I have have a love-hate relationship with the scale ...

admittedly it leans towards the hate side.


Today, we became friends.


The scale represents a lot of things in our health but

we usually only just see it as a device that leads to

talking poorly and scolding ourselves afterwards.


It is an intimidating device that I think says more

about our mental weight than our physical body.


We carry that number around in our head using it as a stick to

beat our body into doing better like it is a poor grade on a report card.


That is why I have avoided it and usually ignore it

as I walk past it daily to get in the shower.

Who needs that kind of negativity in their day right?


I have been working on deepening the relationship to love myself as I am.


A scale seemed like a bad addition to this delicate relationship.


That number is just a number and yet,

it can quickly destroy the progress being made to unite me in body, mind and spirit.


It was in this relationship with the scale I discovered who I really am though.


When I stepped on the scale the other day, I didn't have any expectations.

It was more a challenge to see if I have accomplished alignment

in believing that it truly is just a number that doesn't define me.

That the changes I am making in my life, diet and health are creating the desired side effects that includes weight loss.


Weight loss is a side effect not a goal.


This is where diets and lifestyle programs fail because emphasizing weight loss as the goal is not ever really the goal for good health and long term weight loss management. This is why diets need to be repeated over and over again with dismal results and weight that comes back on our body.


Long term weight loss comes with health improvements that can only be achieved when we address all the other things going on in our health.

Weight loss is truly a side effect of more important health work

focused in our mind, body and spirit.


In my work changing that perspective for myself, the scale becomes my confident.

It is the device to confirm for me what I am seeing in looser clothing, needing to constantly pull up my pants when I walk and feeling happier, more energetic, alert and most importantly,

like myself.


Through that the scale & I formed a new friendship.


Book your appointment with me to change the game in your health.


Release the mental weight you hold.



Hello! Nice to Meet You

Hi, my name is Amy and I'm a mom, wife, employee, business owner and woman who was overwhelmed with her life. I kept wishing things would get easier, simpler & less stressful but each day I'd wake up to the same stress, chaos and to-do list over and over again. It started to impact my health as well, making even easy things seem like a burden. There had to be a better way and just wishing for it to change didn't seem to be making it happen.

I started writing a blog about how it was impacting my health, relationships & life while describing my struggle with how to make things better. It was then I discovered the solution was as simple as changing how we did basic every day things & what it truly means to live more naturally & simply in today's modern world.  I followed this up with formal education to practice holistic health and provide natural support to my own family and now you too!

What emerged completely changed the course of my family's life, created Dragonspit Apothecary & instilled a love of pure nature to help us feel our best every day.
