Effect of Weight Loss in Our Daily Life
Losing weight doesn’t come easy but it does have some serious benefits, many which you won’t see coming. You will see magical transformation in yourselves after losing weight. Some of them are shared below with our readers.
Less Prescription Medicines:
One can probably assume that the healthier you are, the less medicine you need. It actually works that way in some cases. Not only does exercise and clean eating strengthen your immune system and support overall body functioning, but actually losing weight decreases your risk for health problems and may also get you to a place where you won’t need to rely on certain prescription meds anymore. Of course, give your doc a call before you start self-prescribing or un-prescribing.
You’ll Respect Yourself and Others More:
Don’t laugh: a side effect of losing weight and doing what it takes to get there is respecting your body more. It isn’t easy for anyone to lose weight. It takes discipline and persistence. Once you’ve gone through it yourself, you come out the other end with a whole new outlook and respect for others trying to do the same. You also have a new appreciation for what your body endures day in and day out.
Even the fittest get winded walking up and down stairs to the subway. If you live in a big city, you know the struggle all too well. If you’re lucky enough to avoid crowded subway trains, standing for an hour on the train or sitting in traffic forever isn’t fun either, but your body will feel better having to endure it when you’ve shed a few extra pounds. After you’ve kicked the weight, you’ll suddenly realize your trek to and from work is a tad more bearable.
For some, carrying excess weight can exacerbate allergy symptoms. Added weight can strain your respiratory system, so any trouble you experience breathing due to allergies will only aggravate your symptoms further. Lose the weight and you might actually be able to breath a bit more clearly when allergy season hits, says Smith.
You’ll Be More Organized:
Losing weight and getting fit takes planning. When you form a routine around preparing healthy meals and fitting in daily workouts, it tends to flow over into other areas of your life.
Better Check Ups:
If you kick those stubborn 10 pounds, you’re not the only one who will be rejoicing. Carrying around excess body weight can put you at greater risk for a number of health issues from diabetes to high blood pressure. As you would imagine, slimming down has the adverse effect, making your annual check-ups with your doc a lot less painful.
You’ll Become More Adventurous:
In the kitchen, in the bedroom and in everyday life. One of the beautiful side effects of weight loss is that you’ll undoubtedly experience a boost in self-confidence. The funny thing about confidence is that it pushes you to do more and try more.
