Healthy, Skinny, Fit button

Losing weight can be a very frustrating game of wait hope pray and despair. I like to call it the patient game, you patiently weight for the pounds to go away while “anxiously” stepping on the scale every week. I wish there was a fit button you could push and make the weight go away. If I had a fit button I would use it on my two most annoying body parts. I would love to zap my thighs and arms away with the fit button. They are huge and seem not to be going anywhere. If I had to choose between the two I would probably pick my thighs they are bigger then my arms. I can tell you my back fat is shrinking rapidly. I always wonder when you lose weight how come the parts you don’t want to shrink always shrink first! What’s up with that! Do any of you have body parts you wish would leave first?  I have so many goals about losing weight and sometimes I feel if I am over reaching. I want to be healthy I want to be skinny, but how do I know thin would be the right body type for me?  What if it doesn’t look right? I was never thin as a child, so will I ever have a thin body frame. Can skinny be the only healthy body type when there are so many body types. How come the 6’0 guy at work is very athletic build super muscular and about 220 he doesn’t look obese he looks fit. How come he is considered obese? I know I am over weight and I need to lose weight; however I wonder if being so focus on the scale is the key to my weight loss. I really am confused about this, so I will be giving this a lot of thought. I will be updating you on my finally decision about me and the scale.

Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;… and not today’s pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man.
