Weight loss is a big issue for most people. If you’re overweight or are having issues with your body image, losing weight can help you turn your life around. Losing weight will also make your body healthier and help you avert diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Below, see some sure signs of when you need to start thinking about losing weight.
Your BMI says you’re overweight
Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a sure way to tell if you need to lose weight or not. Your BMI shows you is you are within your ideal weight, if you’re underweight, overweight or obese. If your BMI shows that you weigh more than you should, then you should start keeping fit.
You haven’t been keeping fit lately
You should also think about losing weight if you haven’t been keeping fit of late. You can tell you haven’t been keeping fit if you have been eating lots of junk foods and snacks, spend most of your day seated or haven’t exercised in a while. If this sounds like you, then start exercising and eating healthy in order to lose weight.
You have rolls of fat on parts of your body
Another sure way to determine that you should lose weight is if you have areas of your body that are covered with rolls of fat. Common areas to check for fat include lower stomach, thighs, underarms, and below the armpits.
Everyone comments on just how much weight you’ve added
You should also seriously evaluate a weight loss plan if lots of people have been telling you just how much weight you’ve added. Adding weight quickly signals that you may be getting overweight or already are.
To embark on your weight loss journey, see a nutritionist, sign up for a gym membership, start exercising on your own, and start eating healthier.
