I’ve said it before (in my “How much do you weigh” post), and I’ll say it again—I truly believe that one of the problems with the way women perceive themselves is the fact that we have the false sense that everyone else weighs less than we do.
To that end, I challenge all of you to post your weight below* and send shame packing!
For the record, I weigh 197 pounds, and I’m proud of my body. I work hard to stay healthy—I eat most of my meals at home and exercise for at least an hour almost every day—and I have low cholesterol, low blood pressure, and a low resting heart rate. More importantly, my doctors are happy with my weight, so why shouldn’t I be?
If more of us talk about what we weigh, then we can dispel the false notion that our weight is drastically different than everyone around us—even people we see as having smaller waists or more attractive bodies.
And once we realize that real women don’t weigh 100 pounds—unless they hover around the five-foot range—we’d probably feel a lot better about ourselves.
I’ve already admitted my weight—isn’t it time that you did too?
*Feel free to tell us a little of your story too.
