(1) You are packing away more calories than you can work off.
(2) You are not doing enough or any exercises.
(3) Your heart is under immense strain. The telling signs are; chest pains known as angina. Your heart is trying to tell you something is wrong.
(4) Fat is being laid down in and around the heart. This will lead to blocked arteries.
(5) All of your joints are under pressure and being damaged. The outcome is osteoarthritis.
(6) There is strong evidence that obese people suffer from gout.
(7) Your cholesterol levels are rising to a dangerous level.
(8) It is quite certain that you have or soon, will have type 2 diabetes. Which can lead to blindness
(9) Fat is causing irreversible damage to your liver by scarring; this is called cirrhosis of the liver disease. This can only be cured by a liver transplant.
(10) You have high blood pressure which can lead to a stroke or a heart attack.
(11) You suffer from hypertension and unstable temperature.
Death will prevent you getting treatment for any of the above facts and it will be too late.
If you are reading this, then it is not too late, something can be done.
Visit your doctor and take careful note of the treatment he will lay out for you. You owe it to yourself to change your life style starting from today. You are the only master of your destiny, tell yourself that you are going to listen to the doctor, change your eating habits, your life style and try a few little gentle exercises. I know it will be hard to start with but a diet change alone can make a substantial difference.
Adding a few gentle exercises is sure to help with your weight reduction. If you are not embarrassed, go to the local baths and do a couple of lengths of the pool. Swimming is one kind of exercise that puts all of the joints through a good workout. As the water takes the weight off your joints you will find it easier to move about and get the exercise you need.
After a couple of months you WILL notice the changes, your breathing will get a little easier, your temperature will stabilise. Shock yourself by climbing onto the scales and seeing with horror that you are losing weight.
Now isn't that a shame? Don't start running around the block just yet, keep to the diet that your doctor prescribed, and try to increase the exercises and most of all, PLEASE KEEP SMILING.
I like to keep people informed about weight loss problems.
