Everyone has an ideal body weight. For Kourtney Kardashian, who ranks in at 5 foot on the nose, that's probably a lot of less than most of us. In a recent episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Kourtney steps on a scale and sees she's 115 pounds. One-hundred fifteen pounds?! I think the last time I weighed that, I was in middle school!
After a brief discussion over when the best time is to weigh yourself (according to Kourt, it's right after you pee when you're the lightest) -- boyfriend Scott Disick chimes in saying that for Kourtney, who he met when she weighed 95 pounds, 93 pounds would be ideal. Her response? It doesn't bother her that Scott has unreal expectations for her because in her head -- she knows she can't compete with models and has to be the best version of herself.
Phew. At least Kourtney is a realist!!! You should NEVER aim to be at a certain weight because of what the person you're dating wants. You need to be happy for you first.
Kourtney is a busy mom. She's constantly on the go, at photo shoots, doing media events, all the while taking care of Mason and Penelope. In order to keep up with all of it -- she needs to be eating the right things and taking care of her body. For her, 115 pounds is a healthy weight for her BMI range. Heck, so is 100 pounds. Less than that, though, and she'd be underweight and considered unhealthy.
Striving to be at a low weight just to make someone else happy, well, that's no good for anyone involved. For you it's a lot of unnecessary stress for something that's not YOUR priority. Plus, there's a very low chance that you'll be able to maintain such drastic results. The last thing you want to do is yo-yo diet. It can be dangerous and seriously frustrating.
I'm sure that Scott loves Kourtney no matter what size she is (thank GOD!), and I'm sure there was a little bit of joking behind his comment. Regardless though, I'm sure Kourt wouldn't mind a little praise for her hard work losing the baby weight. Lady looks fabulous!
Have you ever trimmed down for someone else?
