@annethenurse:
"Let's talk about weight. Why is weight important to us? If you stand in the grocery store you'll likely see many cover stories about "How to lose 10 lbs in 10 days!" & "Lose 5 lbs FAST!" It's shoved down our throats starting at a very young age. Now I understand goal weights and motivation to see the numbers on the scale drop, but we should never focus on our weight more than we focus on achieving a healthy body composition. We are giving the scale too much power over us."
