Recommended Weight Ranges

A woman who is 5' 3" in height is considered as petite. Even petite women can have a large body frame [skeletal system].

But take special note that smaller ladies aren't capable of supporting an enormous amount of excess body weight. Keep in mind that amid conception, the size of the skeletal system was determined among other factors such as the color of the eyes, the color and thickness of hair, and if certain parts of the body were going to be more generous than others.

A considerable of excess body fat ranges between 25 and 50 pounds. If you have ever visited the feed store and attempted to lift a bag of 25 or 40 pound dog or kitty food - or bird seed, you are aware of how heavily it weighs. If you are currently over your recommended healthy weight by this amount of pounds - that's how much extra weigh you are lugging around.

If you're feeling fatigued and have been experiencing body pain, particularly in the back, knees and hips, it's most likely the extra pounds that are making you feel so poorly.

Before you take that next bite of food or next sip of drink, we hope that you'll remember this article. Are you eating the healthiest foods? Could you switch out cookies and milk for a fresh fruit selection? If you can't, what about enjoying only a couple of small cookies with a serving of low fat milk? Every little bit you do towards making healthy changes decreases your excess body weight bit-by-bit.

If you are more than 50 pounds overweight, it's time to get busy. You'll be extending your life more likely than not while potentially avoiding significant health issues as you age. And believe me - we get old before we know it as it happens so quickly.
