Don’t Be 120 Pounds and “Fat”

About Mrs. O.

This blog is for the average woman. The everyday woman. The budget friendly woman. The woman who can only spare 40 minutes to get herself ready in the morning. The working woman. The vivacious woman. The woman who wants to be healthy, confident, and beautiful. 

With still so much to accomplish, I have realized how much my story and daily routines have the possibility of sparking sharing amongst women, and the ability to help someone else.

Don't Be 120 Pounds and "Fat"

So every year my current job and jobs in the past have conducted health fairs where they draw your blood, test sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. They also have various giveaways, bring in a masseuse to do massages, provide healthy snacks and My Fit Foods lunches, as well as other cool things. It's a great way to monitor your health consistently, receive new ideas and tips, as well as remain informed.

A good girlfriend and I were speaking recently about internal health, and we share a very similar story. Although we have both struggled with our weight, we have always maintained low blood pressure, low sugar and low cholesterol based on our diets. Many people tend to judge others that are overweight, and automatically assume that they must struggle in these areas as well, but that is not always the case. In fact, there are many individuals that are significantly less heavy whose cholesterol, sugar and blood pressure are sky high.

I wanted to bring attention to this point, because it is important to teach our children the value of nutrition and overall good health - not that all overweight people are unhealthy. Now granted, this is no hall pass to be overweight ladies and gentlemen, this is merely another perspective to focus on during your weight-loss journey.

Be active, but most importantly, eat well to live well.
