Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Stop focusing on being skinny. Start focusing on being healthy and the weight will take care of itself.

SparkPeople's Comments

Quit trying to get skinny and focus on getting strong instead! If you challenge your body consistently and fuel yourself properly, your physique will respond very favorably. Lifting weights won't make you bulky; it will only trim you down and make you look more toned--in a good way!

If your focus is on being healthy, the result will be a healthier body. It just makes sense.

It made a huge difference to me to stop focusing on weight and start focusing on health. Weight is the outer envelope, whereas health is the inner substance.
I've been astounded by the results of living a healthier life - softer skin, more muscular body, and better 'functional fitness' (the ability to do everyday activities).

My doctor says I get it now...it is all about health and feeling good. Skinny is a nice by-product, but when you realize it is your health, your life at stake - it makes a huge difference!
