I totally agree with the Fuk-Em! be healthy! attitude.
It's difficult, though, to resist falling into the fashion-magazine mindset of "thin=desirable/sexy". From babyhood, girls/women have the media from every angle portraying that 6' tall, 105 pound women are what society values. Look at Barbie dolls.
And for some of us, we also have parents who tried to push that value on us. I have never been overweight, yet my (abusive, alcoholic) father called me "fatty" and "chubs" in an insulting voice until I disowned him when I was 24. (I never talked to him after that, and I'm 55 now. He died when I was 45. I have no regrets disowning him.) My mother was on a "diet" her whole life, even after she divorced the jerk, and she wasn't overweight either.
IN SPITE of being a strong-willed, stubborn, independent thinker, I still, on occasion, wish I could weigh less. That's a direct result of my father brainwashing me ever since I can remember (supported by the media). When I catch myself thinking "I wish I could lose a few pounds", I remind myself to give my deceased father's image the "Fuk U!" gesture.
I'm 5'2" tall, and I weigh ~107. (I don't know exactly, I don't own a scale. That's what the scale in the doc's office said when I went in for the yearly female oil change and lube job.) I will never be thin like the media shows, but I'm strong and athletic.
NOTE TO PARENTS: one of the benefits of having a mother who was always on a "diet" (before the days when the government told us what was healthy) was that I grew up eating meat and veg, with potatoes as a Sunday treat. We never had bread on the table, and seldom had sweets or soda in the house. So I grew up already about 60% primal... and I've never had a weight problem. Your kids may protest eating primally, especially if they're older, but stick to your guns: you're doing what's best for them! They'll thank you later! I raised my kids about the same, 60% primal, and I have a son who was on a Navy SEAL team for 4 years, a daughter who runs and rock climbs, and another daughter who's a Crossfitter.
And a side note, I think that the way the media has begun portraying men in recent years is also unrealistic. Look at the male movie stars from 30 years ago, versus the ones you see today. Many of the male movie stars you see today have to spend more time staying lean and ripped than they do perfecting their acting skills.
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
