The Project

That's me. And that number below, hiding in plain sight, is my weight. And therein lies the project: to show ourselves to the world, and open up that pesky little number that is our weight. And it is our hope, by doing this, that the stigma surrounding that number will be dealt a blow. That by just the simple knowledge of knowing the weights of other women just like you, we can stand a little taller, and not be dragged down by the taboo every time that we step on the scale; not be prey to those wishing to peddle us diets, pills, and self-help. To not fall into the trap of buying into the unobtainable ideal.
In order to do this, we need brave women of all shapes and sizes, all ages and backgrounds, who are willing to show themselves to the world and open up that secret that is their weight. And shoot a bullet right through that stigma.
