Actress and former Hillary Clinton campaign surrogate Lena Dunham decided to “break up” with her bathroom scale this week following a celebration of her all-time weight gain.

“So yeah, this is a break up,” Lena Dunham told her scale in a video posted to her social media.

“I can’t do this anymore. I don’t have feelings for you anymore. I don’t love you anymore. And I’ve tried, tried to do it different ways. You know, I’ve tried to like bring the excitement back, but, we’re done so…bye,” she said while throwing the scale into the trash.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress has repeatedly posted about her ongoing weight gain online. In February, she posted a photo of herself in lingerie to celebrate weighing the most she ever has.

“I weigh the most I ever have. I love the most I ever have. I read and write and laugh the most I ever have,” she said.

“And I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Not the frail, precarious happiness of ‘things are going perfectly.” The big, generous, jiggly happiness of “I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of this.’ Not too much… Just enough.”

I’ve spent a lot of time in this life feeling like too much. Too hungry. Too anxious. Too loud. Too needy. Too sick. Too dramatic. Too honest. Too sexy (jk lol.) I was always sent the message, in insidious ways, that I took up too much room and demanded too much from life and sometimes gave too much to people who didn’t want any at all. But something has changed, and it started  when I realized: I don’t have to be *for* everybody, and that for the right people, my too much is just enough. My too much also means I have room for their too much and we can take turns too muching all over each other. At 32: I weigh the most I ever have. I love the most I ever have. I read and write and laugh the most I ever have. And I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Not the frail, precarious happiness of “things are going perfectly.” The big, generous, jiggly happiness of “I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of this.” Not too much… Just enough.

Last year, the Girls co-creator shared how happy gaining weight has made her, saying that since gaining 24 pounds, she is “happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits.”

On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy. On the right: 162 pounds, happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits. Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.
