My Bag


My name is Jameela Jamil. Welcome To I Weigh Community.

Two years ago we started an Instagram account to try to create a safe and radically inclusive space on social media. A lot of us want to help others and change the world for the better, but don’t know where to start.

Activism can seem daunting. Sometimes it’s just hard and lonely. At I Weigh Community, we don’t believe it has to be that way. We believe in brick-by-brick activism, and making a difference in large numbers. We’re going to have to come together and do this as one to really shift the narrative of our society.

I Weigh Community will introduce you to new voices, artists, activists and movements. These are the people we believe we need to listen to. We are still learning, and we’re inviting you to come and learn alongside us so we can all grow together. It’s never too late to want to help and understand each other better.

This movement is so important to me, and I look forward to getting to know you all.

Crisis Text Hotline

We all go through high levels of emotional stress from time to time, and when we do; it’s important to take care of ourselves and remember there are people out there ready to help and listen. Crisis Text Line is a free, international 24/7-hour mental health support service for people experiencing emotional crisis – and by crisis, we don’t just mean suicide. A crisis can be any painful emotion, whether it’s extreme depression, paralyzing anxiety, or symptoms related to OCD, PTSD, or schizophrenia.

This is a safe place to text when you feel totally out of control. A live Crisis Counselor will respond, and will guide you towards feeling more in control of your emotions – helping you move from a hot moment to a cool one, and guiding you to create a plan to stay safe and healthy. YOU are their priority!
