Earlier this week, The Good Place star Jameela Jamil shared an Instagram Story that said: “I weigh,” but instead of writing some numbers on a scale, she listed her “weight” as her accomplishments, her healthy relationships, and the sum of her life experiences. This seemingly innocuous Instagram post blew up, with many women sending her their own “I Weigh” images. Because of the surprise success of it, Jamil launched a new body-positive Instagram account @i_weigh that features all the lovely user-generated “I weigh” posts from men and women all over the world.

Jamil’s own “weight” is measured by her “great friends,” her “honest living,” her ability to be “financially independent,” and her platform to “speak out for women’s rights.”

Here, the ‘gram that started it all:

We’ve been scrolling through the posts sent in by Jamil’s followers, and we love everything about this #IWeight movement.

What is your own “I Weigh” story?
