Dieting is not a generally cheerful word. The first thoughts are usually of deprivation of favorite foods and hard battles against temptation. Many times there is early onset dread of failure. People think of many reasons not to start their weight loss program until a later date. Too often, some claim that weight loss is an impossibility for them. The good news is that the truth about weight loss benefits is more than a little encouraging!
Excess weight hinders breathing. When overweight, our internal organs are crowded by belly fat and it is much more difficult to breathe. Far too many daily tasks are done short of breath because of obesity. Often a heavy person’s breathing is audible, even when they are at rest. This is something I have experienced, when I was more overweight, and it is quite embarrassing! Breathing easier is such relief at night. Waking up feeling smothered can be a thing of the past. With weight loss gains, you can sleep better and breathe better!
Being lighter on the scales is also lighter on your bank account. It usually doesn’t occur to us how much obesity taxes our material belongings. Shoes last longer when we weigh less. With my weight being over 300 pounds, my shoes show excessive sole wear. Shoe costs can be very substantial. Many bed mattresses are not built to withstand people with excessive weight. This is good for business but hard on the customer. It is surprising how much less you will spend on snacks and you are sure to notice! The monthly expenditures on fast food will dwindle to nearly nothing. For most of us this amounts to definite monetary gains!
Always keep in mind that people love to see and hear of weight loss success. You can look forward to improved physical mobility! Getting dressed will be much easier. Putting on socks and shoes will no longer make you tired and out of breath. Clothes will fit better and feel more comfortable. You may even feel and look younger, while you enjoy the positive reactions of your peers!
