Pink Says We Should Stay Off the Scales and Has Photos to Prove It
In some cases, weight is just a number your scale shows you and nothing else. So, ladies and gentlemen, please, stop worrying yourselves over these numbers. They don't really define your shape.
We at Bright Side believe so-called "standards" cannot and should not be applied to everyone. And so does talented singer and mom-of-two Pink, who has photos to prove it.
Several months ago, the singer gave birth to her second child. Like many other moms, Pink is trying to lose her "baby weight," but she doesn't seem to be obsessed with it.
Pink recently posted a gym selfie on her Instagram with an honest and positive caption:
"Would you believe I'm 160 pounds and 5'3"? By "regular standards" that makes me obese. I know I'm not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2, but dammit I don't feel obese. The only thing I'm feeling is myself. Stay off that scale, ladies!"
This photo gained over 259k likes, and many people thanked Pink for being such an inspiration for them. But what are those "regular standards" she was referring to?
If you heard about body mass index (BMI), then you know what she meant. BMI is a person's weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. Obviously, this index doesn't take into account other things: muscle mass, flexibility, strength, and so on.
So why should we define our success on the scale alone? The most important thing should be not meeting the "standards" but being happy, healthy, and confident.
