What is the right size, shape and weight for me to be?

If you answer yes to all of the following questions it’s likely that you’re within your healthy weight range.

  • Do you feel healthy and comfortable?
  • Do you feel fit, strong, flexible and able to do any physical manoeuvres you might want to?
  • Do you usually get some real physical activity every day?
  • Are you eating from a wide range of healthy foods?
  • Do you eat when you’re hungry or at the usual times each day – rather than either ignoring your hunger and rigidly policing your food intake, or eating when you’re bored, upset, already full or not hungry?

There is so much more on healthy living, food, body shapes, body image and weight in the book, Girls Stuff 13+: Your Full-on Guide to the Teen Years.
