Get off the scale! You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty, and social acceptance. Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverence when challenged in life. It's true…the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship to gravity. That's it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don't give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life!                                                                                  You are beautiful!

  1. A message with great impact—thanks for posting! Society tells us we should be tied to the scale….and we do have to be reminded that there are other things that make us who we are—-it’s not all about our weight—-it’s about what is inside of us. Thanks for the inspiration today, Suzi! ;)

  2. You’re welcome Cara…you are so right, and I am determined to help remind myself and others to be confident and focus on being healthy. A number is just that–a number. Like you said, it is what’s within us that truly matters :)
