You know I hear this a lot, I'm average, a size 14......ok, here's my take on the topic (I'm already feeling the hateful glares from those of you who use this excuse to do nothing about your weight), but let's face it, it is an excuse!
Yes the average American woman is a size 12- 14, the average American woman is also between 5'4" - 5'6", which means most of those american women are overweight, some borderline obese and some still fall into the obese category.
We all know the health risks associated with being overweight,which are even higher when you are obese, high blood pressure, diabetes etc (yes I acknowledge there are very healthy people at that size, but they are the minority if our current state of healthcare is an indicator).
So I challenge each and everyone of you be better than average, be healthy, don't be a statistic! Do something healthy today and make that your first step towards a healthy lifestyle!
