Raise your hand if you’ve ever written down a goal weight as part of your New Year’s resolutions. We’ve all done it and then felt pressure; it usually involves many mornings spent standing on the scale.

If you’ve found it hard to say goodbye to the scale, we’ve got some mindset-changing tips for you. We spoke with Amy Rushworth, certified health and life coach and founder of Wellness With Amy, who specialises in confidence coaching, to find out how you can start to accept and embrace your body minus the scale.
