I HAVE NO IDEA!!
I don’t. I’m sorry. I have no idea what it feels like to be overweight or obese.
Maybe you struggle with confidence, self esteem, self worth, negative thoughts, depression.
You don’t have to be overweight or obese to experience those feelings. I have, and still do, from time to time, experience all of those emotions. Being skinny as child on top of being the shortest kid in class always affected me. I struggled with wanting to fit in, be accepted, and, well, be taller.
I did learn that there was one thing I could control, my body.
I started working out at 12 in an effort to improve my confidence as everyone was outgrowing me and filling out. So no I have never struggled with weight loss. The emotions you may be feeling I know all too well.
But, one thing is for sure, when I started to take care of what I could and began weight training, all of those emotions began to fade. Now many failures and drug use led to some mental lapses over the years, but one thing remains steadfast, when I’m training hard, I am so confident.
It’s one of the best benefits of working out and getting strong.
I’m an advocate for living healthy, and YES, a big part of that is weight loss.
Being obese and overweight comes with so many risks;
type 2 diabetes
High blood pressure
Heart disease- the #1 killer of Americans
Fatty liver disease
Osteoarthritis- every pound overweight puts 10 pounds of pressure on your joints
Mental health problems, such as depression
