Today is Women’s Healthy Weight Day! This is day to honor women of ALL sizes – and to celebrate the fact that beauty, talent and love cannot be weighed.
“This day is meant to discourage the obsession with severe weight loss in an unhealthy manner. Women are encouraged to live healthy and accept their natural weight and at the same time, avoid unhealthy diet practices using weight-loss plans that could do more harm than good.”
Fortunately, the Low Carb Diet is a VERY healthy way of eating! Not just for weight loss, but for cardiovascular health and as a means of controlling a number of health issues such as: diabetes, fibromyalgia, inflammatory arthritis, and much more.
Eating A HEALTHY Low Carb Diet
Today is a great day to discuss unhealthy methods and mindsets, yes – even on a low carb diet! In my low carb challenge group, I see this all the time. From fasting and cleansing, to obsessing over fast or slow weight loss. This kind of stress and obsession is actually very UNhealthy.
It’s also possible to “eat unhealthy” and still be low carb. I mentioned that in my last post in the section titled ARE You REALLY Eating Healthy? This is a great time to start analyzing “what’s on your plate” and take a closer look at your low carb food choices! Since your goal is 20 net carbs a day, MAKE EVERY SINGLE CARB COUNT! 😀 Keep in mind that food is fuel, and ask yourself: What kind of fuel do I want to put in MY tank?
My goal is to live a healthy lifestyle. This includes a combination of exercise, FUN fitness (hiking, skiing, swimming, dancing), and choosing the healthiest low carb foods I can possibly eat. I challenge you to look at your overall lifestyle today, and consider what healthier choices YOU can make! 😉
It says my ideal weight at 41 years old and 5’5″ is 125-132 pounds.
I’m actually happiest around 142-149. At my age (almost 42), I prefer to have curves – and a healthy figure. This photo of me, which was taken last summer, is a “look” I like. At 125 pounds I would like a sick crack addict. 😛 lol. Not to mention that being TOO skinny actually “ages” you. 😉
“The ideal human body weight has been a topic of debate for a very long time. Hundreds of formulas and theories have been invented and put to the test, but the answer is still debatable. The ideal weight should be unique for everyone. The major factors that contribute to a person’s ideal weight are height, gender, age, body frame, body type, and so on.”
What about you? What did the calculator give YOU, and what is the Healthy Weight you PREFER to be? 😀
To ALL women everywhere… I celebrate you today! Just as you are. *cheers*
