Fighting Obesity To Age Healthy (A Sunday Confession)



Look my friend before reading my article you need to understand this, I have been there, I know exactly how you feel, and what you may be going through.  But let me tell you, being over weight will hurt you if you sit there and let it and don't get up and at least try and do something about it. It is not good to be over weight, obesity can cause your body plenty of harm.

If you are reading this article, and are overweight...you might have asked yourself some of the questions below;

What can really happen if I am overweight?

If you are over weight there is many things that can happen to you. Obesity is responsible for heart attacks. Obesity is behind sleep apnea, strokes, diabetes and so on. When a person is overweight, they often hurt all the time. Sometimes it makes it difficult to breath. Obesity causes the heart to work harder. You may have a hard time walking across the floor. Obesity can make you feel depressed and not want to go anywhere or do anything. Being overweight is bad on your health, as well as your mental well being.

What can I do to help myself?

You have several options, yet the first is to gain willpower to take control of your body. Not tomorrow, but today....tell yourself "Today is the day, Why Wait". The next step is to start eating the right foods, getting some exercise and so on. If you can exercise like you want to that is great, take it slow and do a little at a time. Do not overdo it. If you over work your body, the body will let you know.

Obesity prevents many people from being active. A persons emotions and mental state is affected by obesity, and you start thinking, or saying "I don't want to do anything, or you cant do anything", and its no use, you might as well just sit there and do nothing.

Let me tell you friend, you have to do something. Get out of the house and take in a movie to try and regain your mental state. Perhaps you could visit some friends that you have not seen in awhile. The more you start living, and being active, you will eventually start feeling better about yourself and regain the confidence to lose some weight.

Prior to beginning any weight loss program, individuals must consult a physician for proper diagnosis and/or treatment.

What should I eat?

I cant tell you what to eat, but I can however give you a few pointers.

Instead of frying your food, bake it. Baking meats, veggies, etc will help cutback grease. Baking will help drain the fat out of the food rather than if you fried the food. Fried foods mean fat, fat, fat, which can harm your heart.
  • Try to eat several small meals throughout the day. 
  • Eat plenty of raw vegetables, and salads. 
  • If you enjoy chocolates or sweets, find substitutes. 
  • Try to stay away from fast foods, fast food has obesity written all over its menu. 
  • When you sit down to eat at home, avoid eating in front of the television. 

As I stated earlier, being over weight is hard on you both mentally and physical. Try to gain the will power, motivation, and determination to get up and move, your life may depend on it.

Sit down with those who mean the most to you, and tell them you will beat this...."WHY...because you love them". Tell yourself you will see the graduations, and the weddings, to include the grandchildren. Let this be the motivation you need to beat this....I believe in you!

Start out by taking it slow. Don't go hog wild since it will only make your heart work harder. You need to learn your limits to help you lose weight and take control of your health, remembering its a life change. 

If you find it still too hard to lose weight on your own, then maybe you should see if there is a local support group near that you can join, and get the support you need.
