Reasons to be a loser

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Ok, then! That is pretty graphic, isn't it? It sure got my attention! There are 18 negative effects listed on that picture. Of those, I experienced 8 of them. Granted, that is not as many as some people, but joint pain, social stigmas and lack of employment (lost elections, in my case) are not fun!

There are many health reasons to lose weight, all the converse of those listed. If damage (i.e. arthritis) is already done, then exercise can minimize the pain and further damage.

    Great blog! The picture is very descriptive. I think it would be great if someone did a picture like that that identified the everyday things that you have trouble with when you gain weight. My friend and I were talking about that when we went to the Indy Spark People Rally. You know, why didn't anyone mention that it would be harder to tie your shoes. It's harder to cross your legs. You can't give yourself a pedicure as easily as you used to....the list goes on and on....
