Worried your favorite jeans don’t fit as comfortably as they used to?
Are you digging through your closet trying to find something that actually fits?
Are you unhappy with the way you look after gaining a few pounds?
Sure, it’s important to like the way you look and be able to wear your favorite clothes… but being healthy is important too!!
Did you know the National Institutes for Health (NIH) reports 2 out of 3 adults are now considered overweight and even obese?
Did you know the NIH also reports being overweight or obese greatly increases your chances of getting diabetes and high blood pressure?
Did you know the American Cancer Society says being overweight or obese actually increases your risk of getting many types of cancer?
Don’t be too hard on yourself! Putting on a few pounds happens to the best of us! In fact, the National Institutes for Health says there are many things that likely helped you gain a few pounds, not just our eating habits! Other things that contribute to weight gain include physical inactivity, spending a little too much time in front of the tv, computer, or our smart phones. Not getting enough sleep or certain medications we take can contribute to weight gain. Not having access to healthier foods or just eating on the go also contribute to added pounds.
