We were honored when our friends at Eating Recovery Center asked us to be a partner for their Eating Recovery Day again this year. This year's theme was #MyRecoveryLetter, and we decided to write our letter to "The Person Who Stepped On The Scale This Morning".
To the person who stepped on the scale this morning,
You probably think we are going to tell you that you need to SMASH your scale, but we aren’t. We know what it’s like to live and die by the number on the scale, how your whole day can be determined by one number. We know how that number can determine what you eat or how much you have to workout. Our wish for you is that for today, one day, you can allow yourself to see past this number. We hope that you realize that you are worthy of love, and if you’re struggling, worthy of help, regardless of what the number says. This number cannot tell you how brave you are or how strong you are. It cannot tell you how you are going to change the world. You inspire us everyday to keep SMASHing stigma and raising awareness. If there ever comes a day where you do want to SMASH your scale, we will be right here cheering you on.
