The dangers of being obese.

22/02/2010

“There has been a “dramatic rise” in deaths in England in which obesity was a contributory factor, researchers say.”

This is the first paragraph in a story from the BBC news website (click here to read the story).

The bit that struck me was near the end when it says:

“people in the “early stages” of obesity did not often realise how dangerous being overweight could be and their weight commonly “creeps up” without them noticing.”

It is very easy to say to yourself, “my diet is quite healthy, and I walk most days, and I’m no fatter than most of the people around me.  I know, I’ll change my life from Monday!”

It is very easy to slip into that mentality.  And when we do, our weight “creeps up” on us.

Don’t wait til Monday.  Do something today.
