What Kind of Size?

by Kris Pitcher

If you ask people what size they want to be they can tell you. Men and women alike usually have a number in mind. It's like buying a car...whether you're willing to say it out loud, you've got a number in mind.

But what kind of size do you want to be? You can be a fat 8 or a lean and muscular 8. Either way, you're a size 8. Do you care? Or do you just want the size?

What does it matter you're asking? Well, what it matters is simply everything regarding how you go about losing weight. It's easy to spot over fat people of size. But can you spot a skinny fat person?

Squishy with no muscle...
There's nothing great about being the "right" size if you have no muscle mass and you're just a pile of mush. You can squish the mush into the pants like filing a tube of sausage. Ish!

My point is, it's important to go about it in the right ways. In ways which will build and maintain lean body mass (muscle mass), while burning fat mass. The point is, don't be afraid to incorporate strength training...ladies. It's not going to make you huge.

Just wanting to lose any old weight might leave us little fat people, and we don't want that. So while you might not have thought about it much, it's important to consider what kind of size you want to be rather than just what size.

This helps you slow the process down, not be in such a hurry to get to a certain number. You want to get there with your metabolically active muscle tissue in tact. Besides, there is no "right" size. There's just whatever size you are.
