While Losing Means Winning

There are some facts about weight problem which all of us are aware about. About 60 % of us are either in the process of losing weight or controlling weight. According to a study, around 56% of adults are overweight and 20% are obese.

What are the profits of getting right weight? According to the National Institutes of Health, people who are obese are further prone to have hypertension, high blood cholesterol levels, diabetes and some kinds of cancer. So if we are able to get the ideal weight then we are more likely to reduce many health risks. After losing weight, you will feel more comfortable, more energetic, more confident and perhaps more happy also.

So you should know your weight loss needs. And you should determine if you need to lose weight in reality. And if you need to lose weight, so how far you are from your winning weight (Ideal weight). Find out if you need to change your eating habits for weight loss. If you are very close to your ideal weight then you need not go for the full weight loss program. If you are having weight problem for years or your weight is more than 20% than the ideal weight (healthy weight), you should take the consultation from a physician or health professional before starting any full scale weight loss program.

First steps to weight-loss success are to estimate how you feel, both physically and emotionally, and then set up practical weight loss goals. If you want to lose weight, set some short-term goals, and prize yourself (with non-food rewards) each time you make progress. Consider, even small weight losses to be helpful. Should you reach a level that you cannot get past; perhaps you need to reconsider your weight goal.
