We all know how being overweight can negatively affect one’s health (i.e. diabetes, heart issues, sleep apnea, etc.), but it can also interfere with the quality of your life in many ways. At Slim4Life, we understand how weight loss is necessary in order to achieve an active lifestyle – and vice versa. The activities that could be adversely affected by being overweight include:
· Physical. If you’re overweight, you’re more likely to tire quickly and lack energy. In addition, that extra weight is hard on your joints. You may not be able to enjoy sports, exercise — or even a simple shopping day with friends. Transforming your lifestyle the Slim4Life way — the healthy way — is a proven path to achieving and maintaining weight loss and enjoying a significantly higher quality of life.
· Social. Many people who are overweight suffer from low self-esteem, which can inhibit participating in many social activities. Just getting out and going to a restaurant or movie can seem like a chore when you’re not feeling good about yourself and the way you look.
· Dating. If you’re single, being overweight can also affect your dating life. Dating is often hard enough, but when you’re not feeling confident, it’s even harder to get out there and put on a good face. It may also cause some inhibition when it comes to participating in fun activities together – like biking, hiking or swimming.
· Career opportunities. Although it’s certainly not fair, people – including employers – do judge others by their looks and their weight. Some who are overweight feel like they’ve been passed over for a coveted promotion or new job because of their appearance. Even in cases where an employer is not judgmental regarding one’s looks, the decreased self-esteem and confidence of an overweight employee or applicant may impede their career opportunities.
