I found out about the YAY SCALE! Here are some samples...
These scales totally rocked! I think I need to make my own "YAY" scale. It was a great reminder that I am worth far more than a number that the scale provides. The scale and my clothes are feedback, but there is so much more to me than just those numbers.
I forgot the entire purpose of the jeans project. It is to demonstrate pride in your body, but I also think they sew the patches together to make blankets for AIDS patients? I'm sorry I am fuzzy on this one.
The biggest thing I walked away with from this group was a quote inside their brochure:
"Despite all the pressure I feel to attain physical perfection, I have realized that in the end, when I look back, the things in my life I will be proud of will have nothing to do with the size and shape of my body."
POWERFUL. I think I need to memorize that one.
