Weighty Matters

I forgot why Elayna brought up the subject of weight this morning, but for whatever reason, she said "You're a hundred pounds!"

"Ninety, sweetie."

"Oh yeah, because you lost weight." Pause. "I thought grownups wanted to lose weight. That losing weight was good."

Thank god Adam jumped on that one. This ended up being a conversation of some length regarding weight loss and the implications thereof - how most adults are at a perfectly healthy weight. How some need to GAIN weight.

Not all adults need to lose weight. And the whole "I'll be happy if I just lose 10 more pounds" culture is dangerous to girls.

Elayna is absolutely a perfect weight for her height.
