Submitted by on August 27, 2009 – 12:52 pmNo Comment


Its too easy to get caught up in today’s society and forget about some very important issues. Weight being the biggest and the one I will be talking about. There are several factors that contribute to you gaining weight. There are so many negative effects of carrying an extra 20 pounds, 30 pounds, 40 pounds or more it seems childish not to look after yourself better. The most common ways to put on extra weight is eating out, drinking soda, stress and of course lack of exercise.Too many people are falling into a bad routine and cant seem to fix it, so here are some reasons to think twice your choice of lifestyle.

Effects of being out of shape and over weight

High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol- This is a serious health factor in how you live your everyday life. Having an above average blood pressure and cholesterol will put more strain on your heart and veins to pump blood to where its needed. This can be a determining factor in early heart failure or heart related problems.

Heightened Glucose Levels– High glucose levels is  commonly linked to type 2 diabetes

Sleep Apnea– Poor sleeping patterns have been associated with excess weight and obesity. Losing weight can help you get a better night sleep and in turn lowering stress levels.

Joint Pain– Carrying extra weight puts unnecessary strain on your joints and can cause osteoporosis if not corrected.

Low Self Esteem– No one likes the way they look when there over weight, and a little self esteem can make a big difference in your everyday life, so do it for your self.

These are only a portion of negative effects of being overweight. Getting on the right track can be as simple as making a workout plan for yourself, a simple diet, or just getting outside and doing some fun active activities.
