#Repost @alexlight_ldn • • • • • • I used to obsess over trying to find out how much celebrities weigh. And yes, I am embarrassed to admit this now, but it’s the truth. ⁣ ⁣ Some had outright revealed theirs, to the pound, and others had given a ballpark number, and they were all listed on this (thankfully now defunct) website that I would spend hours on. As I uncovered the weight of a new celebrity, I would either feel good – I weighed less! – or feel worse – I weighed more. It was a weird kind of torture that was addictive to me. ⁣ It was the same with women in my life, too – I was desperate to know their weights, for better or worse. ⁣ ⁣ But here’s the thing – you cannot compare one person’s weight to another (see picture!). One of the members in my private FB group (link in bio) posted this and 🤯🤯🤯 These ladies are of course all a slim weight but I don’t want that to be the point of this post – this post is about comparison. We are each built completely differently – shapes, heights, bone structure, muscle and fat ratio… Ethnicity plays a part, too.⁣ ⁣ We are all unique – it’s what makes life rich and interesting and WONDERFUL. Besides, what we weigh should not matter. Ever. I reduced myself to a weight on the scales, and used that as a tool to make myself feel bad, like I didn’t measure up to others who weighed less. Imagine what I could have done with that time and energy instead. It makes me sad to think about it. ⁣ ⁣ It’s why I refuse to ever tell you guys my weight on here. I get asked this a lot – but there is no point. It only leads to comparison and that is futile and damaging and a total waste of time. ⁣ ⁣ I want to leave you with this: scales can’t take into account how much you make people laugh, how good you make people feel, the good you do in the world, how loved you are, how worthy you are, what a kind person you are… What you weigh is not an indicator of how deserving you are of love and happiness. *i can only find this pic on Pinterest without credit – if you know where it’s from, please let me know!
