Don’t Focus on Losing Weight!!!

This is just a simple reminder for anyone looking to lose weight.The most important thing in losing weight is to…..NOT TO FOCUS ON LOSING WEIGHT.

Focusing solely on ‘what we weigh’ is a recipe for disaster and often results in compromising our health.

Everyone of us is different, and you have a healthy (ideal) weight range for your particular body type – pre-determined genetically.Some people are naturally slim – these are the people with a ‘high metabolism – commonly known in scientific/technical terminology as ………….’BASTARDS’.Others are NATURALLY of a bigger build (the ‘cuddlies’). This is perfectly normal & healthy for them.

Sure some people need to lose some pounds, but if so, focus on being healthy & feeling better. Quite naturally the weight will go. And remember, if you begin exercising more and your weight still doesn’t drop…or increases – don’t worry. This can often just be a symptom of losing more fat but actually increasing your lean body tissue (muscle etc)…which ‘weighs’ more than fat. Also, when you exercise more & become more balanced, you often tend to be more sensitive to remaining properly hydrated (drinking more fluids etc), and thus sometimes you weigh more simply through having sufficient (as opposed to insufficient) fluid levels.


So the main thing is to never focus (solely) on what you weigh – Make ‘How you FEEL’ No.1 …How You LOOK (body composition not sex appeal!) No.2 … and if you really feel the need…What you weigh, No.3.
