A lean body is a beautiful body. That’s one superficial reason to set a weight-loss goal for yourself. But there are many more meaningful reasons to achieve a healthy weight.
You’ll feel better and have more energy to do any tasks, you’ll lower your chances of having high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart ailments, bad cholesterol, and joint pain. Weight loss can reduce the severity of all these diseases.
But most important is the satisfaction you get when you can start wearing the clothes that were too fitting once. Believe it or not, weight loss can change you as a person. All the sweat, hard work, and determination that you put into shed those extra kilos will make you see life through different eyes. Here are some superficial benefits of weight loss:
Post-weight loss, you will have a whole new take on life and you would want to show off your hard work to everyone. You will start feeling more comfortable in your own skin, thanks to that excess weight you shed. What more, colleagues at the workplace who once commented on your size, will start treating you better.
This happens often. You want to wear an off-shoulder or crop top, but are scared to try it because you’re fat! Or your size of clothes is not available in most stores. Don’t be disheartened. A lean bod = more of new styles and smaller sizes which are available at most stores.
No more pulling and tugging or sucking in to button up your favorite pair of denim! After shedding some weight, you’ll feel like the jeans are made to fit you, which wasn’t the case before.
Posing for the camera
What you were once shy of doing, is now your favorite pass-time. Yes, we are talking about posing in front of the camera. Many don’t like uploading their pictures on social media because they are fat or they feel they look fat if the picture is not clicked from a “good” angle. But with the extra kilos gone, you can pose in any angle.
