Last week I posted about stepping on the scale of success and some of you commented on what you would like to be weighed in and also shared your feelings on how our weight can alter the way we see ourselves. Whether it’s stepping on the scale or trying to fit into our skinny jeans we’ve all had those days where we let our self worth be measured in pounds or our self worth in jean size. If you watched the emotional video from Lean Cuisine you saw that you are not alone. Women do not want to be measured by their weight but instead by what they are doing and achieving every day.

Weighing our daughters self worth
A few of you also mentioned that this is a very important topic and something that you worry about with your daughters. As a mom to a 10-year-old girl, I am very aware that she is watching me and listening to everything that I say and do. If I stand in front of the mirror and complain about my butt and thighs, she will no doubt think that she needs to worry about her butt and thighs, and I certainly do not want her growing up thinking that this is the only way she will be measured. These comments were such a great reminder.
As moms, we need to be careful about how we talk not only about ourselves but other women in front of our daughters. When we can build ourselves and other women up, our daughters will likely follow. Weighing our daughters in their successes and what they are accomplishing should be a our top priority. Pointing out when they are being kind, nice, helpful, strong, focused, hard working, determined and trying their best. These are the things that we should be adding to our daughters self worth scale.
Savvy Tip: Self Worth Weekly Weigh in
At the end of the week, step on the scale of self worth with your daughter and weigh your week! Celebrate the positive things you both accomplished that have nothing to do with the number on the scale.
How do you weigh your daughter and how do you want her to be weighed?
