Strong, fit and heathy rather than skinny is the new goal to attain!
Strong = power, competent, courage, vigorous
Skinny = weak, meager, emaciated

A little background seems appropriate to set the stage.
As with many women, including my Mom, I have for much of my adult life struggled with weight and body image. This resulted in several costly and sometimes painful outcomes:
It was generally all or nothing. Not a toe in the water, either all-in or all-out. This cycle was based upon DIETING. I personally hate that concept as it a fraud…for me it meant: Diet and lose weight, stop dieting and gain weight, diet and lose weight, stop dieting and gain more weight. A vicious and unhealthy cycle that I needed to stop for both my physical and emotional wellbeing. A myopic focus on the numbers displayed on the scale…was a focus on the wrong thing. I needed to shift my energy and focus to becoming FIT & HEALTHY.
