"3 best friends since kindergarten, drive, kindness, empathy, makes friends with strangers, Jewish and proud, Daughter, 100+ hours of television," she proclaimed. Her point was that she "weighs" herself in all those things rather than just a number on a metal scale. She encouraged fans to send posts "weighing" themselves.
