You Are Amazing! #WeighThis

You are Amazing

You are AMAZING! Read on to see why. This inspiring conversation has been sponsored by Lean Cuisine.

Last week I shared this thought provoking video from Lean Cuisine:

Lean Cuisine’s new campaign talks about what really matters. They ask a simple question:

What do you wish people would ‘weigh’ you on besides your weight?

When people look at me, I don’t want them to see my weight, age or anything else that doesn’t matter. Instead, I want them to see a woman who is not afraid and goes for what she wants. I always wanted to do something in the medical field. Going back to school after so many years was intimidating, but I pushed through it and am so proud of myself for doing it. I think I look pretty great in my scrubs.

What do you wish people would ‘weigh’ you on besides your weight?

I shared my full response to Lean Cuisine’s question in this blog post and asked you to weigh in on the conversation. The feedback I got from all of you here on the blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram was amazing. YOU are amazing!

You are Amazing

Your kind words and support mean so much to me, and I loved hearing what’s important to you. You are all so accomplished, caring and loving. You should be weighed on all of those things and more. I said I would be following up and sharing your answers to the question “What do you wish people would ‘weigh’ you on besides your weight?”

Since there were so many heartfelt answers, I have randomly chosen some to share below:

What do you wish people would ‘weigh’ you on besides your weight?

I wish people would weigh me on my humor, my giving ways, my honesty, and how great of a mom I am with my kids. – Nicole

My mind, my talents, my knowledge would be much better options than my physical weight. That should never define a person. – Debbie

My work ethic and how much I love my family and friends. – Pam

I would love to be weighed on my determination. – Jeannette

Weigh me on my ability of being a multitasker – handling kids, family and career all at the same time! – Debra

Being a woman in todays world is tough. We are ‘weighed’ on more than we should be – perhaps if everyone could just see us for women instead of how we look, dress or weigh. – Teresa

I wish they would weigh my heart and not go by appearances. – Lindsey

After years of trying to lose weight I have finally accepted my body and I am happier. People should weigh me for all the good, bad and hard experiences I have gone through. – Babita

I would weigh my faithfulness (that’s heavy!) – Shelley

I wish people would weigh me based on my kids. I’m proud of the job I’ve done with all five of my boys. – Jasmine

Some of you even said that you don’t care what other people think and don’t want to be weighed on anything.

You all have so many wonderful qualities and inspire me so much. You are amazing! It’s not to late too ‘weigh in’. Please leave a comment below. I would love to hear your thoughts.

  • I wish people would “weigh” in on my strength through the obstacles I have overcome. The empathy and compassion I have as a Disability Advocate to fight for equal rights. The sacrifices I have made over the years due to my injury leading to progressive diseases. My intelligence in completing my degree and still benefitting from courses in daily life helping others just not the degree title.
    While I have said all the above statements, I want to “weigh” myself to believe everyday these beliefs are true on my roughest day.
    Everyone has posted great answers and I wish you all good luck!

  • You should definitely be proud of going back to school & doing what you dreamed of doing! Go, you!!

  • I love this campaign of theirs. We really are complex people and worth so much more than what we look like on the outside. I love all of the readers’ responses- it reminds me to weigh myself by what really matters- how hard I love. 🙂
