Last week we talked about five signs that you should look out for which will tell you that you need to lose weight. Whether it’s your doctor, your friends, your body, or just that voice in the back of your head, heeding the call to get healthy is a smart move that will pay off massively in the long run. We have five more signs to look for if you’re thinking you need to lose some weight.
6. Making Constant Excuses
Humans are quick to rationalize their actions, but this can cause a lot of long-term damage because we end up being unable to change ourselves for the better. You might make excuses to yourself that you’re too busy to plan your meals or go to the gym. In the end, though, being honest with yourself is the best thing for your self-care.
7. Out of Breath Quickly
It’s no laughing matter to be out of shape, especially if it interferes with your everyday activities. If you find it very difficult to walk up the stairs at home or find it difficult to do your usual routines, your heart and lungs are straining to operate efficiently. Dropping the weight can help reduce this strain and extend your life.
8. Clothes Don’t Fit Anymore
Use your favorite jeans as a gauge for your weight. If they become too tight, it’s a good sign to start practicing healthier habits to drop the extra pounds.
9. Numbers are Off
While body-mass index doesn’t tell a complete story about your health, it can be used as a starting point for talking about it. If your BMI is high and your waist size is over 35 inches, you could be at a higher risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol values.
10. You Just Don’t Feel Good
Excess fat in the body can cause inflammation that makes your skin tender to the touch and causes constant fatigue. If you feel sluggish all of the time, you should consider changing to a healthier lifestyle. Contact Pria Wellness Center to enroll in our weight loss program!
