Do you ever wonder if the health benefits of losing weight are worth all the work it takes to actually lose weight? I did.
When I was overweight, I knew I was headed down a dangerous path.
I was old enough, at 30, to realize that weighing twice what I should weigh wasn’t healthy — emotionally or physically. As my weight crept up, I noticed drastic changes in my appearance, and subtle changes in my health.
Weight gain does not happen overnight — it took me about three years plus a pregnancy to gain 150 pounds. So, generally speaking, if you are substantially overweight, it took years to get to the point where you are now. Because of this, often times your overall health status changes slowly as well.
That was true for me.
