Thoughts on Weight Juxtaposed to Good Health

January 23, 2013 at 9:46 am 2 comments

This is just my thoughts this morning on something I find frustrating.

Ever since Tough Mudder I had not been consistently working out.  I MIGHT have made it there once a week MAYBE.  Great things happened too.  I was eating whatever I wanted and I lost 10 lbs.

I know exercise and eating good things prevent almost all health problems.  My biggest fear in life is having my body breakdown before I’m ready, or to be in chronic pain.  I have to do everything I can to prevent that.

So I’ m getting back on track again and I almost instantly have gained all the 10 lbs back.  It shouldn’t be a big deal because I know it is muscle.  My clothes fit great so I know it is good weight.  The problem is, I can tell my brain that all day but the idea that “less is better” that has been pounded into my head drives me insane!

Weight is not a huge insecurity for me. I’m not fishing for compliments by any means.  I just wish real measures of health were pushed more than just weight and BMI.  Both can be misleading and BMI is just a load of crap.  My conclusion? Stop getting on the scale in the first place! It is just frustrating and disheartening.  I need to go by clothing size or just not worry about it at all and focus on small goals at the gym.  If I’m reaching goals there, there is no way I’m going to be looking frumpy.

    I agree. The cross fit guy here in town talks about improving performance, and not going for looks.
