I just saw a post about self-love advice and one of the points was “Ignore the scale”
IGNORE THE SCALE
I’m saying this in all seriousness, as someone who has been struggling with being underweight in all of his life; check your weight regularly if you know that you tend to have issues with weight that influence your health. And even if you didn’t make any progress; love yourself. The scale doesn’t dictate your worth, but it very fucking well gives you information on your health. And if you work on getting to a healthier weight, you’ll find that it makes you feel better, too, about yourself and your body.
Bodies weren’t made to be unhealthily over- or underweight, and if your body struggles with weight, you will struggle with life. If you have problems with loving yourself, and happen to have weight issues too, don’t ignore them. Face your weight, and please don’t tell yourself it doesn’t matter, because it does matter. Love yourself for working on it, not for ignoring issues that have an influence on your self-image and health.
