    I'm sick of sending messages about getting "skinny" to people. Little girls are the ones that hear this and they end up with eating disorders. Cut the skinny crap. It's about HEALTH. Society is messed up, we need to change that. Advocate for a healthy body and a healthy body image.

    I never want my daughters to be obsessed with this, I want them to be healthy, strong, godly, indepedent, smart, funny, compassionate, loving, and to KNOW that what that scale says has NO BEARING on who they are.
