Do you Love your Scale?


You’d always be able to say that you love your scale and it loves you, particularly if you have a YAY Scale (rhymes with “weigh scale”).

What’s a YAY Scale?

YAY Scales were originally created by Marilyn Wann, author of the wonderful book Fat!So?  and creator of the Fat!So?  website.  There are many projects that have utilized YAY scales as part of self-acceptance projects. A YAY scale is made by replacing the numbers dial with compliments…so you might weigh “gorgeous”  or “a rare beauty” on any given day.

Here are some projects that have used YAY scales to help women and men love their bodies. (you may have to scroll a bit find the articles and pictures on the YAY)
