Every day in the USA, millions tell themselves "I need to lose fat." Are you one of them? Not all those people actually need to lose fat. So the right question to ask is "Do I really need to lose fat?" If you are asking yourself this question or this is the first time to think about it you really want to read on.
One of the signs that tell you that you need to lose weight is being obese. Many people do not understand that being overweight is different from being obese. There are different definitions for the word obese, but generally it is said that you are obese if you are 30 or 40 pounds overweight. Obesity is a very bad thing as it is proved that it has a relation to many diseases even the early onset of death.
Another sign that tells you that you need to lose weight is the recommendation of other people. If your physician or someone who really cares about you told you that you have gained some weight and you need to lose it, take their words in consideration and look for other signs to make sure you really need to lose that extra fat.
Another simple sign is that your clothes are no longer fit you or difficult to get into. Some people may experience some fluctuation in their weight, this is normal. But if this problem lasts for some time you should start thinking about losing some fat even it is a small amount.
This small amount of fat you have gained may lead to more weight gain and at least it will make you buy new clothes which you may not be able to afford. And the most important thing is that small amount leading to more weight gain will finally affect your health badly, so start taking action before it is too long.
Also you should be alerted when you find the simple activities you are doing every day become difficult. This difficulty may be for other reasons but there is a good chance that it is due to extra weight. When you lose that extra fat you will find it more easy to do your daily tasks, so be patient if it is difficult at the begging and do not give up quickly as this will make your life more easier.
