Earlier this week I read an article in the New York Times that spoke brilliantly on the immorality and damage our society’s unrelenting focus on the scale inflicts on people, particularly women.
Rather than take much time telling you about it, I’ll just urge you to read it. Especially if you:
Let your scale dictate your mood.
Still think there’s a direct relationship between scale weight and health.
Believe (even subconsciously because that’s where much of this occurs) that your value lies in being as small as possible, or at least smaller than you are now.
You can read the article here:
Please let me know what you think about it. Whether you agree or disagree I’d love to know your opinion. This is incredibly important stuff.
Lastly, every other week we get a box from Imperfect Foods. They offer fruits and vegetables from local farms and purveyors that would otherwise get thrown away due to minor cosmetic imperfections, as well as various grocery items.
We get all sorts of things from them and have always been happy with their products.
If you use this link you’ll get $20 off of each of your first 4 orders. (That’s $80 off!!!!)

P.S. The article – Diet Culture Is Unhealthy. It’s Also Immoral.
