You are more than a number!

Always remember- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

Today what I wanna talk about is THE SCALE! And hold on! I bet that when you hear that word, the adrenaline starts rushing through your veins, you feel the butterflies in your stomach and the fear of that useless object starts overtaking you!

It is so sad to see that so many women and obviously even men measuring their attractiveness through what the numbers on the scale show! I feel perplexed how to explain how useless the numbers on the scales are,so  I turned for help to my friend wikipedia and what it says is: “weight is the name given to the force on an object due to gravity.” So you are trying to convince me that measuring how gravity affects your body could be comparable to the way you see yourself, to how attractive you will feel and how sexy others think you are? Hm…doesn’t sound with much authenticity to me!

Let’s look at it that way. The gravity on Jupiter is about ten times stronger than the gravity on Earth. That means that if you go there you will weigh a lot more than you will weigh now. Does that make you look fatter? Feel less sexy? Makes you less attractive?? NO! Just because gravity affects you in different way on Jupiter, that doesn’t make you look worse! Then let’s move on to the Moon! There gravity is 5/6 less than it is on Earth. So iuhuuuuu you will be a lot lighter! Does that rise your self-esteem? Does it make you feel better? Well, it shouldn’t! You will look just the same way as you look now. So did you see, how you could weigh yourself, and the scale could show three different weights and you’d still look the same?

You are more than a number- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

I hope that is enough to convince you that the numbers on the scale, are not relevant to your attractiveness. Nobody cares how much you weigh. People perceive objects by the way they look. When you meet somebody, they won’t carry a scale with them. They won’t ask you to step on the scale, see the numbers and according to them decide if you are worth being their friend or not!

I read an article that gave me some things to think about. It was said how in Playboy you get all the measuremeants of the models beside their weight! And why do you think it is that way? Because nobody cares. These girls are hot no matter how much they weigh because proportions are more important for the way others perceive you! That is why if you want to keep track on your body composition, it is way better to grab a meter and take your measures, instead of ruining your mind with the useless numbers on the stupid scale!

Think about people with chicken legs and big bellies. And now imagine a fit, strong person. Both of them might weigh the same, but do they look the same? NO! I wouldn’t care how much they weigh! I’d just admire the second one and encourage the first one to get his nutrition right and start lifting some weights!

The numbers on the scale do not matter! It is just a trick of the marketing world. It is just a way of the industry to get in your head and make you feel bad, so you will use all their pills, foods, creams and other bullcraps to shape yourbody. But it won’t happen.You are not a piece of clay- you can’t be designed to look in certain way! Just take that wrong invention of humans-the scale…put it in a box, somewhere in the closet and forget about its existance. Live your life and enjoy it! And make sure that you never compare your attractiveness to some useless numbers!Remember- YOU ARE MORE THAN A NUMBER-YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!
