These women all weigh the same.
These women all weigh 70kgs // 11 stone // 154 lbs.
In May 2012, Australian Marie Claire published the above picture of six Australian women who all weigh 70 kgs (that’s 11 stone or 154 lbs to you and me).
They bravely bare their bodies, showing that ‘average’ comes in all shapes and sizes.
Did you know…
70 kgs / 11 stone is the national average weight for women in both Britain and Australia.
See how they all look different.
Different heights and different sizes.
They all weigh the same, yet they range in size from a size 10 to a size 14.
Through my blog and Facebook page, I am openly sharing my weight loss journey.
Clothes size, body weight and all.
I am now a national average.
But I don’t look like any of the above.
National average does not necessarily mean being healthy or a ‘good’ weight.
We all carry weight differently.
At 5’7″ I am not short.
And at 11 stone ( 154 lbs ) I still consider myself somewhat overweight.
But I am a national average.
Being OVERweight is now the norm?
I have 14 lbs to go until I reach my goal weight.
Although, I’m not convinced that will be right for me.
Maybe a further 7 lbs or so…
I’m going to wait (weight? Ha!) and see.
I think I will just *know* when I reach what is right for me.
Sometimes, you just need to go look in the mirror and remind yourself WHY you are choosing to live a healthier lifestyle.
Find YOUR unique number that looks and feels good to you.
Your weight is just a number.
Never give up on your goals.
