Wow such a beautiful project with a beautiful message.  I have always sworn that I will never own a scale, but I would break that promise for one like this, because I know I wouldn't obsess over what's on the display.

Oh my goodness! This is well "Perfect" haha (yes I know I'm cheesy) I'm going to bookmark this and keep it in mind. I have a friend that has struggled on and off with an eating disorder for years now. I think this would be the perfect pick me up should she ever need it (I really hope she won't though)

That is so awesome! I love love the feet! Fantastic job!

Also, am I the only one who noticed that the newspaper you are working on says "Don't Waste" in extremely large letters?! Pretty funny! Cheesy

I'm sure this isn't relevant to this situation, since the girl's mother asked you to create it, but I beg everyone who considered/will consider making a similar gift:

Any focus on an ED sufferer's weight can, and likely will, trigger. ESPECIALLY when it's an outsider, EVEN if they're telling me nice things. Because you're still focused on it, I'm fixated on it, and in some cases, if I'm being told I'm perfect when I'm at my worst, I could clearly only be more perfect if I'm more emaciated.

YMMV but I would hate to see such a sweet thought backfire.

You should sell those on etsy, they'd really help with my depression!

I do not struggle with an eating disorder nor do I have any loved ones who do, but I wouldn't mind having that in my bathroom at all!  It's taking something that makes you think less of yourself and turning it into something beautiful that reminds you that you are beautiful as well!
And thank you for your comment, rinkin.  It would indeed be a shame to see such a sweet thought backfire.

Thank you all so very much for your wonderful comments!  Smiley

I appreciate your concern and input. My friend is a licensed therapist, and works with people who have eating disorders. She is well aware of the concerns and issues. But again thank you, and your comment is appreciated. Smiley

That is absolutely gorgeous, and the message behind it is really motivating and powerful. What a great idea.
