Have you seen this body scan of a 250 lbs woman versus a 120 lbs woman?
If you’re looking for motivation to lose weight … I’d say this is a really good reason to start taking healthy eating and adopting a healthy lifestyle (aka exercise regularly) VERY seriously!
The difference is simply shocking.
When you look at the two scans you quickly see the following on the scan of the overweight woman:
Her stomach is much larger
Her shoulders are really wide
She’s essentially twice the size of the 120 lbs woman
Her hips are much wider apart (which explains why overweight women have a lot of difficulty walking)
Look at how far apart her feet are due to the weight around her thighs and knees.
Her ankles are bent (which could be due to the extra weight)
I am not saying we should all be 120 pounds, but reducing our body fat is the most important thing we can do for our health, even someone of 120 pounds can have too much overall bodyfat, but that will not put as much pressure on the body as someone carrying a lot more!!
