Are you feeling down about how far from your Target Weight you are? Well you may be happy to know that just by shedding 10% of your body weight that you have already been making significant changes to your overall health and wellbeing!
Body mass is calculated from a formula using height and weight and gives an indication of health risk and longevity.
Carrying a lot of fat around your middle (apple shape) poses more of a health risk for heart disease and diabetes than fat stored on hips and thighs (pear shape). So, even if you have reached your Target Weight, its a good idea to check your waist measurement.
