I don't weigh myself, well, at least not regularly. The last time I looked at one of the "ideal" weight charts for my height, I was 20 lbs over weight. Really. 20 pounds. If I weighed my "ideal" weight I would be too skinny. My face would be haggard and I would have no chest or butt. I am not saying I don't have an ideal weight, but it is definitely not their ideal weight. I also don't diet. I eat well and occasionally indulge in the finer things like Ben &Jerry's Coffee Toffee Crunch.
I do "weigh" myself by how I feel. Am I tired and sore, or energetic and feeling good? Are my pants tight? How big is the roll when I sit down? How does my butt look in these pants? When I'm not eating well, when I am not fueling my body, the answer to all the above is not the answer I want.
I spent too many years going on crash diets and fad diets, doing high impact aerobics with Jane Fonda and ankle weights, trying to fit in the proper place in the charts, never happy with my weight.
Experts say that muscle weighs more than fat, and it's true, it does. The size that I wear doesn't equal the amount that I weigh, but I look, feel and perform better at the weight I am right now, which is off the charts!
So STOP WEIGHING YOURSELF! STOP TRYING TO FIT INTO THE CHART! Eat well and workout everyday.If you just "Eat Clean", you eat well. Google "eat clean". Lift weights, do yoga, hike, bike, swim and ski.
