如果有人劝你 take the weight off your feet, 意思就是劝你坐下来，歇歇脚，坐下来休息一下，尤其是站久了。这个短语和你的体重可没有关系。
- After walking around Paris for three hours non-stop, Mary found a nice coffee shop and took the weight off her feet.
- Don‘t walk to school today. Go on the bus and take the weight off your feet.
值得注意的是，大家可千万别把 to take the weight off your feet 和 to carry your own weight 给混淆了。后一个短语的意思是自己对自己负责。
- My brother has finally got a job! Our father kept telling him that at 30 he is old enough to leave home and carry his own weight.
