This question really is just a prelude to whether you need to exercise or not. And the answer is, yes, you should. If you can do it as soon as you can, it is never too early or never too late. To lose weight is an objective but what about losing weight to get you to an ideal size? Is there even an ideal size?
Depends on Who Does It
There should be a limited discussion with someone who chooses to lose weight because of an honest evaluation of their health and someone who wants to lose weight because they have to. While we are not exactly trying to judge why you want to lose weight, having to stabilize our current dimensions is a responsibility and more than just our waistline numbers. A positive mindset of being healthy takes form in a forward outlook on life. If you are focused on that magazine with the Page Six girl and a size zero dress then it is not worth losing weight because it is what you always see. Wouldn’t you rather be the fuller happy girl than the contrived thin one? We thought so.
Losing weight is a good thing but doing it for the right reasons is just as important a fitness goal. Societal pressure often replaces objectivity in going for something that we truly desire. For weight losers, wanting to be thin gets in the way with being healthy – and therefore rapid eating habits arise from this reaction.
Time to be Healthy Always
There are some extreme eating habits: the cotton ball diet, the cabbage soup diet, the vinegar diet, the baby food diet to name some could have been effective but are not healthy in the slightest way. Unfortunately, to lose weight steadily is done traditionally with two things: exercise and diet. Others may say that you can do without the other—and perhaps so—but the point of the matter is that it is all about hard work. Indeed, sweating it out is your only answer.
And there are those who want to work their way around it, who take pills and powders to do things in shortcuts. There is no denying that anyone of those methods will work temporarily but in long-term, there would be a high risk of dependency if these are habitually done. Having said that, a reality check in the form of unfitting wardrobe or symptoms of fatigue, restlessness or sluggishness could be the boost you need to lose weight. Finding the balance between the goal of losing weight and enjoying the process of losing weight should is a must. An ideal weight is more than the actual numeric value. The ideal weight is how you feel and corresponds to your outlook in life. If you find yourself frowning or depressed despite being fit and glamorous then it is time to check on whether losing a lot of weight is the key to your happiness.
