What is a healthy weight for you?

 

Being overweight or underweight puts you more at risk of developing health complications. For example, your immune system and bone mass may be at risk if you're underweight, and you can have a higher chance of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes if you're overweight.

To figure out what a healthy weight may be for you, a simple tool to use is BMI. BMI is an abbreviation of Body Mass Index, and is a measure of weight-related health risk. It is a tool that takes into account your weight in relation to your height in order to estimate the percentage of body fat. Take a look at the table below which illustrates the range of what may be healthy for you.

Can I still join WW if I don't want to lose weight?

 

Yes! Our name WW reflects that we’re becoming the world’s partner in wellness. We will always be the global leader in weight loss, but now WW welcomes anyone who wants to build healthy habits—whether that means eating better, moving more, developing a positive mindset, focusing on weight…or all of the above!

So, if you don't want to lose weight but would like to take advantage of everything else we have to offer (perhaps you want to be inspired to move more, or learn to meditate with Headspace), we would love to welcome you to WW.
