Weight is just a number
Sunday, September 02, 2012
I know we are told this all the time - weight doesn't measure your worth, weight does not define you, weight doesn't even fully define your weight loss success. I finally internalized this. It was something I read on someone's blog or page or somewhere, and since I don't even remember where it was, I don't remember who it was either, so I apologize for not giving credit where it's due. They pointed out that weight is the force on an object due to gravity. Since gravity differs on each different planet, our weight would differ there as well. At my current weight on Earth, I would weigh 100.5 lbs on Mars (can I move there, you think?) or 681 lbs on Jupiter. Weight is still a good measurement to track progress, but it made it all relative to me when I realized weight differs depending on the effects of gravity throughout the universe.
Edit: It looks like people are not getting my point. I want my body to be smaller, with less fat, and better health. I DON'T have a specific number I want to weigh!
