I don't get what there is to discuss here. If health is your goal, a healthy weight is a natural consequence of aiming for health. A symptom of health is a healthy weight, being overweight is a symptom of poor health.
To me the choice is- health (and healthy weight as a part of that), or focus on appearance/ getting very lean. As long as those who make appearance/ leanness a high priority aren't choosing to overdo that at the expense of their health, I have no issue with it, although personally I prefer not to focus on appearance for philosophical reasons lol. Prioritising weightloss over long term health is not a great choice, but I haven't seen many people here doing that, except those with body image/ eating disorder issues.
