Weight is not something you can be truthful about. How true is this?
In a 2003 review of 1970-2002 research studies, 57,172 women underestimated their weight. Is this so surprising? Everyone, women included, wants to put her best foot forward. Do you think this is stil true 10 years later?
Guess what happened when it came to estimating height. The best-foot-forward hypothesis struck again, women, 39,244 of them, overestimated their heights.
Now, for those of you who want to put your best foot forward for real when it comes to weighing less, you know what you really have to do.
