Healthy Weight Week

Celebrate Healthy Weight Week from January 20 to 26 by dropping the diets and picking up some healthy habits instead! Unfortunately, diets don't work. Healthy lifelong habits are what will get you to lose weight, maintain your weight, and will bring you to good health!

The concept behind Healthy Weight Week is that dieting is harmful to your self-esteem. You diet because you view yourself as overweight. Then, the punishment, deprivation, restriction of calories, and avoiding happy, pleasurable food begins. If you're always feeling hungry, feel deprived, and view yourself as "fat", then gaining weight is actually easier than losing it.

What exactly is a healthy weight? Uncontrollable elements that affect weight are: height, bone density, body type, and body composition. Certain types of diseases may also cause rapid weight gain, such as diabetes, PCOS, and more.

During healthy weight week, setting a weight goal and sticking to a set number of calories does not take first priority. For example, if you are having difficulty losing weight, instead of focusing on counting calories, use a smaller plate instead. You will eat the same food that you enjoy, finish the food on your plate, and lose weight. A simple change can make weight loss easier than you may think.

Positive body image and establishing a healthy relationship with food is what counts and can help you reach your weight goals. In fact, 63% of people who have a positive body image are more successful at losing and maintaining weight for a year compared to a 26% success rate for those who are discontent with their bodies. 

During Healthy Weight Week, hide your scale. Do not look at a height and weight chart, avoid body mass index, or BMI, calculations. Love yourself, love your body. Change your thinking and focus on these goals: 

  • Accept your weight and embrace who you are.
  • Set realistic health guidelines for yourself.
  • Focus on positive lifestyle changes.
  • Appreciate yourself. Create positive relationships with family, friends, and food. 
  • Change your thoughts. Erase negative thoughts and begin positive self talk, such as telling yourself that you are beautiful. 
  • Enjoy your eating experience by eating a variety of foods. Do not diet or obsess on food, weight, or calories. Eat when hungry, stop when full. 
  • Move your body. Enjoy a hobby or turn up the music and dance!
  • Relax and take time for yourself. 

If you enjoy Healthy Weight Week, don't just stop at one week - make lifestyle changes that will positively impact you forever!
