HEALTH : why i don’t weigh myself

comments 6


i realise that this is very sensitive subject – weight and body image.
so i just wanted to give a little warning that this video is about those things, if anyone thinks that they might be upset about hearing me talking about this.

this is a very personal video, with my very personal opinion on the matter of weight and what the number you see on the scale says about me. there will of course be a lot of you who watch this that disagree and think that weighing yourself is the healthy thing to do. it is nothing wrong with having different opinions. and like i say in the vid, there are circumstances that might absolutely call for the scale just to be on the safe side !

i do believe however that there will be those of you out there who feels the way i do, and that it might do some good to stop weighing themselves all of the time. but that’s just my guess, you will have to tell me how you feel after watching the video ^.^

i would love to hear your thoughts about all this. the more we talk about these things, the more relaxed we become. that’s what i believe anyway.

and no matter what the number is on your scale, i want you to remember :
it. does. not. define. you.

  1. I used to weigh myself, but not anymore. It must have been more than a year since I’ve pulled out the scale. I still count calories but I’m fine with that. I eat very healthy and I enjoy making my own meals. I understand that constipation, PMS, or just water can affect the number on the scale and can really ruin one’s day if you go on it with an expectation of what your weight must be. My thought is “if I feel comfortable with how I look, why should I go on the scale? It’ll just ruin those happy thoughts I currently have.”

    Thanks for this video Jenny. You rock.

  2. I haven’t weighed myself in a decade. I feel I know my body, my mass as an organism in my environment. I’m in the best shape of my life, despite that I’m getting on. Paul.

  3. I weigh myself twice a day, and I agree with everything you’re saying! It stresses me out, and I get very upset when the number is not what I hoped it would be. I’m at a healthy weight, so there’s no reason to check in this often. I stopped counting calories a few years back, which was a good change for me, but I simply replaced that crutch with frequent weigh-ins, I now realize. It’s a challenge to lose the control that numbers provide and trust my body — thanks for the inspiration to do so. <3

  4. Your ideas on diet and exercise liberated me so much. Thank you Jenny! I always used to think that diet & exercise are not meant to be painful and restrictive, and that a ‘no pain no gain’ mentality is unhealthy, unsustainable, and the reason the majority of people give up on ‘fitness’. Its so refreshing to see that I’m not the only one who feels that way.

  5. Thank you so much for all of the positive body image posts. I have only recently discovered you and your blog, and I can’t tell you how much you have begun, little by little, to change the way I view my body. You are an inspiration. Keep up the great work!

  6. I agree! Weighing yourself doesn’t do much good, unless you actually need to know your weight for something in particular. But for the most part, it shouldn’t matter so much as to what you weigh as long as you are comfortable with how you look and feel. I weigh much more than I did 3 years ago but look and feel much better about myself!
