Here’s the thing: I’ve spent way too long caring about the number on the scale and the arbitrary calculation of my height-to-weight ratio. Not caring about the number on the scale is so foreign to me. For the past seven years, I’ve weighed myself multiple times a day, changing my intake (usually decreasing it) to… Continue reading Weight, BMI, and Other Really Irrelevant Things
This is the excerpt for your very first post.
Aka Idina Menzel belting Seasons of Love ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee-- in inches, in miles, In laughter, in strife-- in five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes-- how do you measure a year in the life?

Because I cannot resist fighting back against diet culture and… Continue reading you don’t need to make your new year’s resolution about shrinking yourself.
