Lately, I’ve been thinking about the meaning and mission of Weightless. I know that some of you have been reading my blog for a few years, others are new readers, maybe some have even stayed with me since the very beginning, November, 2009.
The name “Weightless” was suggested by my close friend Jenny. I wanted something that conveyed my belief that our weight doesn’t dictate our self-worth, that we’re whole and good and enough regardless of the number on the scale and the food we eat, that we don’t need to internalize our society’s ridiculous infatuation with thinness. And so “Weightless” was born.
