What is a healthy weight? generally speaking, you want to maintain a weight that falls within the ‘healthy weight range’ according to the BMI index. It is important to remember that your goal weight should be a realistic weight that you can maintain while you are living a healthy lifestyle.

Your correct weight / healthy weight is a weight that can be maintained without:

* Restricting food intake
* Over-exercising
* Being preoccupied with thoughts of food due to deprivation
* Feeling the negative affects of starvation or semi starvation such as fatigue, irritability, loss of concentration, and a depressed mood

Also, it is important to remember that everyone’s weight tends to fluctuate within a day so it is not necessary to become fixated on a certain number.

If you are struggling determing what your healthy weight should be - schedule an appointment with a primary care doctor. If you know what your healthy weight is, but are having trouble achieving / maintaining it - again schedule an appointment with a doctor. Once you have been medically cleared, and want additional help - call a therapist.  We are here to help. 267-324 - 9564. We are located in Center City Philadelphia.
