Someone’s true weight in life has nothing to do with a number on a scale — that’s the message behind this movement taking over Instagram.
According to PopSugar, the “I Weigh” movement, started by “The Good Place” actress Jameela Jamil, is taking over social media after she noticed back in March the comments section of a photo that discussed the weight of the Kardashian sisters.
“I clicked on the comments, and it was so many girls freaking out about their weight. Something in me snapped. Whatever you think about the Kardashians, these are still businesswomen, and even they are being reduced to nothing more than pounds and kilograms,” she told The Lily.
Taking the concept of weight and turning it on its head, PopSugar says Jamil made the “I Weigh” movement more about a person’s self-worth than their actual body weight, inspiring people to “share the gifts and struggles that they weigh, whether they’re related to religion, sexuality, or mental health, because we are so much more than our physical appearance.”
“Shameless” actress Emmy Rossum joined in and shared her own “I Weigh” photo, says PopSugar, offering that she weighs “‘drive, kindness, empathy, Jewish and proud, the courage it takes every day to overcome PTSD’ and so much more.”
