Day 3 of Women’s Month. Today I want to discuss a sensitive topic – excessive body weight. There is so much pressure on women in the media to be “thin”. I want to make a few quick points about this:
1. The number on the scale does not define you or measure your worth as a human being, neither does the size or shape of your body.
2. “Thin” does not necessarily equal “healthy”.
3. It is your responsibility to take care of your body and ensure that it is maintained in a healthy state and at a healthy weight for you.
If you are unhealthily overweight, know that regular exercise and healthy nutrition can restore your body to a healthy state. Please don’t wait until something goes medically wrong to start taking care of your body – start today! Do it because you love your body and want to care for it properly. 💓
