There has never been a study showing that weight is the problem. Weight does not determine your worth or your status of health.
The best weight for you is one where your body feels warm and comfortable all the time, your cycles are painless and uneventful, your happy and enjoy life, you have a robust amount of energy, you have successful bowel movements and your skin and hair are strong and clear.
Once you start focusing on these biomarkers rather than the number on the scale magic will happen, you WILL find your happy weight and you WILL feel good.
Spending half your life caught up and stressed out over 10-15 pounds is no way to live.
You may love how you look but you hate how you feel and chances are you are depriving yourself of nourishment and joy.
I don’t know about you but id rather be happy, healthy and a little fluffy than cold, skinny and sick.
✖️Pulse: 75-90 beats per minute all day long.
✖️Temperature: 97.8 F when waking and 98.6 F mid-day (with a rise in temperature when ovulating). Your hands and feet should be warm all day and you should be comfortable.
✖️Period + Sex Drive: A healthy cycle is 28-32 days long (can vary), a 3-5 day period (not too heavy, not too light), a pink/red color, minimal mood swings and pms, ovulating every month, no pain, cramping or sore breasts, and a robust sex drive.
✖️Hair, Skin, + Nails: Hair should be shiny, full and smooth (not dry or greasy), skin should look healthy and clear, and nails should be strong.
✖️Bowel Movements + Urination: we should be having bowel movements at least once a day, three max. They should be easy to pass and a perfect bristol #3. Undigested food, loose or hard to pass bowel movements, excessive gas and funky colors are not normal. We should be urinating 5 times a day (not 10) while still drinking 1/2 our body weight in oz of water.
✖️Energy + Mood: we should be energized all day and not need a stimulant to keep us awake, we should be sleeping 7-8 hours a night without interruptions (not 5 or 10 hours), and we should feel happy and have a zest for life!
