AceShowbiz - Bella Thorne wants everyone to know that scales don't matter. On Wednesday, May 18, the "Famous in Love" star took to her Twitter account to tell her followers to just throw away their scales as she shares a message about her exercise routine.
"almost every day I have been to the gym in the last 6 weeks," the 24-year-old star penned on the blue bird app. "Turns out I only lost one pound of fat and gained one pound of muscle."
The former Disney darling then encouraged her followers to "throw away your scales ladies because they don't mean s**t." She insisted, "As long as YOU feel better and u like the way u look that's all that matters."
In a follow-up tweet, she wrote, "FORGET THE SCALE F**K THE SCALE."
Her tweets appeared to resonate with some Internet users. "Those scales can be discouraging if you feel like you haven't made any progress," one person replied to the "Midnight Sun" actress. "Every time I run, I feel like I'm losing weight yet I always look the same. Just wish that exercise is more encouraged for health rather than for appearances."
"Thank you for this tweet Bella! I've been dealing with an eating disorder for quite a while, constantly getting on a scale over & over again, obsessing over my weight. These words made my day, thank you so much!" someone else said.
Also struggling for the same thing, another user shared, "I've started going to the gym again, BUT this time I'm not weighing myself. I've damaged my mind with the scale so many times, I ain't doing that cycle anymore. Now all I care about is feeling good in my skin."
Prior to this, Bella revealed her New Year's resolutions for 2022, which included making physical and mental changes. "I will be healthier this year," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "I will take more care of my body. I will drink more water. I will pay more attention to my negative mental habits. I will work to change those. I will stop judging myself so harshly. I will be happy."
She continued, "I will work to understand what pushes my artist creativity further into the abyss. I will take more time off I will take more time for myself, to enjoy myself, to enjoy the person I am today, I will not just think about tomorrow or the next day or the next 5 years. I will do things that push my limits. I will challenge myself. I will not let my yearning for more do my soul injustice."
