Stop Focusing on Weight

“Often, when people lose a lot of weight, they can become a leader in the shift away from weight loss as a point of emphasis,” says Ross. “Many people will ask them how much weight they have lost, and answering that question directly feeds the disease of hyper-focus on weight. I encourage everyone I work with who loses a lot of weight to answer by saying, ‘I don’t know, I just feel great. I’ve been focusing on moving more, eating healthfully and feeling good. Thanks for noticing that it’s working.’” Jonathon Ross

This is a continued social problem that we are more concerned about weight loss than the intrinsic value of lifestyle changes:feeling better, performing activities without effort or pain. Beauty is from the inside not the twig thin outside! We need to balance our mental, spiritual, emotional and physical aptitude. Focusing on weight only is short sighted and leads to guilt, shame, unworthiness, discontentment & body disrespect. Please share your wellness story with us! Would love to hear from you.
