Diet culture teaches us that we are worthy of love, fun, happiness, and life only when we are at a certain weight. When we are not there, it tells us, we must constantly strive to get to a lower weight.
The truth is, your weight does not equal your worth. You don’t need to earn your worthiness. You already are worthy, no matter your weight, shape, or size. You are worthy.
Getting on the scale and losing a few pounds doesn’t make you a better person than you were the day before. It changes nothing about who you are as a person and the kind of energy you deserve to attract. If you gain a few pounds, again, it changes nothing.
Your weight does not equal your worth. It simply measures your relationship to gravity.
