For many women, body weight is inversely proportional to their sense of self-worth. Thanks to the "size zero" fad and the anorexic thin models, women all over the world have taken up weight loss without thinking of the consequences thereof.

On the other hand, many people prefer to ignore weight and health completely, till it is right there staring in their face. I am here to say that there is nothing wrong with wanting to be thin and fit. But, whilst you do that, make sure that you are of correct weight for your height.
