My departing thoughts were:
1. Step away from your scale. I repeat: step. away. from. your. scale. After the call, I was speaking with the other bloggers and Kelly said it best: a scale is a weapon. When your sense of accomplishment and self worth is based on your weight you will constantly deal with a skewed sense of your accomplishments and self worth.
2. Weight loss is not a useful measure of actual outcomes. We have been taught that weight loss is literally synonymous with beauty, health and happiness, but the truth is: it isn't. Figure out what you really, really want (happiness? to wear a bathing suit? run a mile in 10 minutes?). I think you'll find that weight loss is not actually necessary for the outcomes you desire.
Note: This segment features weight loss talk and discussion of weight loss surgery. I don't think weight loss talk is good for humans. And I absolutely will do just about anything to talk people out of weight loss surgery but absolutely don't hate on people who have decided it was right for them! #prochoicefeminist
