Adele's Weight Loss Doesn't Define Her, Just Like Mine Doesn't Define Me

No one woman's worth is found in the number on a scale.

Adele's Weight Loss Doesn't Define Her, Just Like Mine Doesn't Define Me

Adele has lost 40 pounds in the last year. Her transformation is so awesome and it truly warms my heart to see her so happy.

But it is troublesome to see her earn all this praise BECAUSE of the weight loss.

As someone who has struggled with weight and body image, it's easy to feed off the compliments of "Oh, you look so good!" when you know the weight loss might have not stemmed from a healthy place.

Often, my entire mood is defined by the number I see on the scale. But with every pound I lose, I am never satisfied and can always find something to pick at.

It is sad to see people just now praise Adele — she's always been amazing.

I believe she lost the weight for personal reasons, and that she is eating healthy and exercising, which makes me happy for her.

Weight loss can bring a new sense of meaning and start a new chapter in life, which I think she needs after the end of her relationship.

It's just made me think about my own weight loss journey and if I am doing it for the right reasons.

I've lost around 35 pounds from when I was a senior in high school to where I am now. When I look back at pictures of myself from back then, I am filled with embarrassment, even though I am happy in the picture and didn't have a problem with my body at the time. When I got to college, I began to compare myself to everybody, and if someone was skinnier than me I would fixate on my own weight for days on end.

It didn't help this is when I started dating and pretty soon all my validation came from what guys thought of me.

All in all, none of us are defined by our weight, even if the media makes it seem like the number on the scale holds our worth.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
