Weight problems In contrast with Overweight

Sometimes life throws a lot at a person. Some of us catch what is thrown at us better than other do. Less say me for instance, I always thought I was overweight upon doing a little research I’m not overweight I’m obese. Now you ask what is the difference apparently a lot, obesity is a condition in which body fat has accumulated to an extent that health is drastically affected. Obesity has a body mass index of 30kg/m2 or higher that distinguishes it from being overweight, which has a body mass index of 25kg/m2.

Being obese and even overweight can cause lots of health issues. There are so many that I can’t begin to name some but for instance cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and sleep apnea. They say that being obese can reduce your life expectancy now this one is a wake up call for me. I like most of us in this situation have a family that I want to be around for, for a long time.

The thing about obesity and overweight is that is can be fixed there is a cure. Death can be prevented. It would take a lot of work and commitment take care of this condition, but look around you don’t your think you are worth it or your family is worth it.

The primary treatment for obesity is dieting and physical exercise. According to books and website that I have read there are a lot of plans out there to use. You just have to find what is right for you.

That is where I seem to have my problem I want to lose my weight, but I’m the type that has to plan it out. That is my problem sometimes planning it takes a long time. I just need to jump up and pick something and stick to it. How many times have you said that to yourself? Easier said then done. The sad thing is if you’re not careful you will wind up with obese children (that is another article in itself).

Upon researching and looking at various plans, diets and other ways to lose weight I decided to review and compare some of them. Looking on my list several really catch my eye. I so look forward to sharing my journey with everybody. I also look forward to sharing all the plans that I find out there with everybody.
