SERIOUS HEALTH RISKS
Excess weight carries with it some serious physical and emotional health threats. Whether you’ve put on a few pounds over the years, or have struggled with your weight all your life, your weight gain is associated with greater health risks like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, gall bladder disease, arthritis and early death.
Besides the health risks, weight seriously affects self image, ensuring that overweight people suffer considerably more often from low self-esteem than those who fall within standard weight levels. It’s hard to feel good about yourself when you don’t like how you look, plus it’s tough to do the things you want to do when you don’t have the energy to do them.
