Deciding on YOUR healthy weight

There's a BIG reason why the emphasis is on YOUR weight in the title of this post, because YOU are in control. Many of us are genuinely concerned about our weight...

-What's healthy?
-Am i underweight?
-Am i overweight?
-When should i stop loosing weight?

In a society that pushes and shoves us into it's standards, we quite often get mixed responses to the questions above.

There is no RIGHT answer. But there are a few things that help you decide what YOUR healthy weight is. My first piece of advice... don't look to the media for help. Most of what's portrayed is completely unrealistic and does nothing for your self-esteem.

Remember a healthy weight should mean that you are content. That is the most important thing to take into consideration. When loosing weight, stop and ask yourself: Am i content at this weight or do i feel like i still need to loose more?
We all fluctuate weight throughout our lives and there will be times when we feel more comfortable with our weight and times when we don't.

I'll let you in on a BIG secret though.. Feeling content and comfortable with yourself has alot to do with your mind. You could be at your ideal weight and still look in the mirror and not be happy.

Whatever weight we all are we can all be more positive and take it easier on ourselves.

In my experience, being too hard on myself has led to stress and weight gain.

Ultimately, you are in charge of your life. You get to decide where you are happy.

Have courage and be kind,
