Losing weight isn’t always about how you look; it’s about how you feel.
When most people think of weight loss, they imagine themselves fitting into their favorite pair of jeans or how they’ll look when they reach their goals. However, losing weight is about more than just your appearance; it’s about your health. And sometimes, people may not feel like they look like they need to lose weight, but it could help them to feel better. Here are a few signs that you may need to lose weight that have nothing to do with your appearance:
#1. Exercising is overly uncomfortable for you.
Regardless of whether you’re happy with your appearance or not, exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. If you are overweight, it can make exercise uncomfortable to the point where you never want to pursue it. Weight loss may help to make exercising easier.
#2. You feel groggy and tired all the time.
If you’re carrying around excess fat, it can lead to internal inflammation, which causes a constant state of fatigue. Even normal parts of your routine, like doing laundry or going to the grocery store, can be exhausting. Losing weight may help you feel more energized on a regular basis.
#3. Your back, hips and/or knees hurt.
The extra weight that you’re carrying around can put added pressure on your joints. This can cause the tissue that supports the joints to wear down, making movement uncomfortable. Not only does losing weight help to relieve some of this pressure, but it also makes it easier for you to exercise more, which builds muscle that supports the joints.
