So when she asked me “Mom, what does a scale do?” I was a little surprised but I told her, “honestly, scales don’t do much- they just tell us how much we weigh.” She hopped on and saw how much she weighs and then proceeded to ask me how much I weigh- I smiled and said “about 228 pounds”. Her response was typical kid fashion “WOW THAT’S A LOT!” I laughed and said “it’s a bigger number than yours, because I’m bigger than you are. As we grow up, our bodies become bigger and change- along with all sorts of other thing in our lives. We get new jobs, get married, maybe we have kids, we age… Our bodies change throughout our lives. The number on the scale will change a lot throughout your life.” And I continued,
Now to YOU my friend and mom reading this- remember. If you are having a day where the number on the scale isn’t reflecting what you want to see- Your weight does NOT define the amazing woman you are. It is simply your weight.
