Too Heavy – Are you kidding me?!

Too Heavy – Are you kidding me?!

I am not a fan (or non-fan) of The Hunger Games. I had never heard of it until last week. I did happen to catch a bit of news about the media “dissing” the star actress, Jennifer Lawrence. I just did a quick internet search and came up with this article, that pretty much sums it up… http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/11659196-421/the-fatness-of-katniss-jennifer-lawrence-laughs-off-insults.html

I suppose maybe the people in the movie weren’t starved-looking enough for the movie, but to make comments that this, quite attractive young lady, is by any means overweight or even heavy is not only doing her an injustice, but harming the women of the world.

Ladies, don’t let the media fool you. Most guys like a little meat on the bones of their significant others. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying that being heavy is a good thing either. A nice happy, healthy medium is probably the best goal. Your body has a natural weight that it will tend to. If you are treating it right, that should end up being the right weight for you. Some of us just need to be comfortable with who we are

I can’t hold myself up as being the best person for the proper weight. I have fought with my weight for years. I go up & down some, depending on the time of year, my diet and my exercise level. People have told me I was too thin before, and I know I have been too heavy at times. I sometimes tell my husband, “Look at that person, (typically overweight and wearing something skin tight), I wish I was that confident in my appearance.” Okay, maybe they need a fashion consultant, but they are comfortable with the way they look – good for them.

WOW, I just searched for a weight chart to include and – depending on the chart I look at – I am currently overweight – ugh. So, I’ll choose to look at the one that says I’m getting close to being up there – and start exercising more. That just goes to show you, there are many different opinions about the proper weight, you have to be careful which ones you believe. Look at the height/age/weight charts in your doctor’s office. I find them to be pretty accurate.

I can tell you that starving yourself to be super skinny because that’s what Hollywood & magazines say you should look like is not the thing to do! Check out a picture of Jennifer Lawrence. That girl is NOT heavy

Find the right/healthy weight for your frame and embracing it.

Have a healthy weekend!
