Get Off the Scale! You are beautiful!

A beautiful poem by Steve Maraboli, for all women out there. Happy Women's Day!

Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable.

Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are.

I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it.

I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humour, and contagious smile.

Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true; the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity.

That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love.

Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!” ? Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

I don't find overtly obese women sexually attractive at all.

God bless your soul and thank you for your kind words but I won't relax and believe that I am beautiful just because you said so. I will keep on climbing that scale until I reach my ideal weight.
