Real Women Discuss What Body Weight Makes Them Happy

Need Motivation? Get to Your Happy Weight

I recently came across this great little slide show on about real women and how they got to their "happy weights" — a weight that they were finally happy with themselves about. I loved it because it's just one of those things that you read and it makes you feel good. It's not about being rail thin; it's about being healthy. It's refreshing to see that these women had found happiness in their body images, giving hope for all of us who are not quite there yet. Here's an exerpt:

My Happy Weight: 140 pounds
“Last spring, I changed my diet and started working out five times a week. It was a personal victory—I’ve never felt stronger.” —Jocelyn Cooley, 38, 5’2”

Scroll through all the slides — if you're like me, you'll get that "Hey, I can do that too" attitude, which is a fabulous way to start the new year.

Do you have a "happy weight"? If so, feel free to share it in the comments section below.
