Former Disney star Bella Thorne recently told her followers to throw away their scales because they don’t mean anything.
The 24-year-old tweeted: “Almost every day I have been to the gym in the last 6 weeks. Turns out I only lost one pound of fat and gained one pound of muscle. As long as YOU feel better and u like the way u look, that’s all that matters. Forget the scale,” she wrote.
Her followers agreed with her.

One commented: “Facts, one thing I struggle with when I have been on a diet in the past is that I would get too fixated on the number on the scale. It was bad, I would then not want to eat because I was seeing no difference. That’s why I will never go on a scale again.”
“Thank you for this tweet, Bella! I've been dealing with an eating disorder for quite a while, constantly getting on a scale over & over again, obsessing over my weight. These words made my day, thank you so much!” commented another.
