Why did I save this 1990's ad?  Because for so many years I needed to remind myself that I am more than my size.  I am more than numbers...the numbers on a scale...the number on the tag of my many more inches my hair needs to grow...

Seeking approval and making myself small.

And statistics.  They do lie.  You can make a statistic lean any way you want to suit your purpose.  That I have known for a long, long time.

In many ways, those days are behind me but there will always be a struggle in some way or another to remind myself that the only approval I need is mine.
