Get Off The Scale : Quotes

Get Off The Scale!

by Steve Maraboli

[Author of  “Life, the Truth, & Being Free”]

 You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

 Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

 It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!

  1. As a teen I’m worried about my weight all the time. I’m a bit on the chubby side. I’ve always put myself down because of this. Although I’m smart, funny and people call me beautiful, I tend to ignore that and only look at te negative side. I feel insecure at times. I’m trying to change and lately I’ve been seeing myself differently.
    This is a well written and deeply inspiring quote :)
