I’m not overweight. I’m just nine inches too short.~Shelley Winters
I really don’t agree with the ideal weight that the weight for height chart suggest that I should have. I would be only skin and bones. In my opinion skin and bones was never sexy, and will probably never be. I use a different measurement for my ideal weight: how good I look.
I’m not losing weight because I want to fit in into other people’s perceptions. I am losing weight because I want to see a sexy person looking back each time I look in the mirror. And if I like what I see I am sure others will be pleased with my appearance too.
I’ve met a lot of women, all gorgeous who weren’t satisfied with their looks because they didn’t fit the mold. I told them exactly what I am going to tell you now: There is no ideal weight or shape that everybody will like. It’s impossible to please everybody. The best thing you can do is please on person, yourself.
After all it’s your body and you have to live with it. Might as well be a pleasant company, one you can be proud of.
Some of the weight for height ratio charts I checked out are absolutely impossible to obtain. Maybe a long period of lodging at an extermination camp could get you near that weight, but a healthy lifestyle won’t take you near it. To look good and be physically fit you need muscles. And muscles weight a lot more than fat does. The more strength your muscles have the more you will weight.
This doesn’t mean you have to have hulk like muscles. By working out frequently you muscle density increases and your muscles get slimmer, making your body look more toned and healthy. There are people that look great and are way off their indicated weight for height ratio. Hope that someday you will be one of them too.
