One of the most invigorating aspects of exercise for an out of shape person is the rapid results.
When you are fat and out of shape it's hard to break old habits such as not lying around on the couch watching TV and eating Doritos. The cool thing though is once you get in the habit of going to the gym regularly, being active outdoors, and eating healthier, then everything gets easier. It actually becomes very enjoyable to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
- It’s easier to breathe because you're losing weight and don't have as much inner fat pressing on your organs.
- It’s easier to walk around because you don't have as much excess weight hurting your joints in your knees.
- It also gets easier eating healthier because you learn to like it.
Eventually you'll be disgusted by the taco meat at Taco Johns. You may even decide to go vegetarian and avoid meat all together.
It also gets easier for many people to go outdoors and be active when you are in better shape. I don't like swimming in public because of my man boobs, yes the dreaded moobs. I love to go swimming but I hate having gynecomastia. When I lose weight and get in shape the man boobs won't be near as obvious and that will encourage me to go swimming more often because I actually love to go swimming. The more swimming I do and the more that I will lose because swimming is a very healthy cardio exercise.
Getting in shape, eating healthy, and being physically active is also very important for when you get older. Building a healthy life starting now will help you to not only extend your expected life span but you also live a much more fulfilling life when you're older. Instead of hobbling about on a cane like a feeble old man you can instead be like my grandmother who is 81 and just finished another half marathon.Credit: Flickr/Flavio~
When you're fat or obese you also find your self-confidence will also grow. Having more self confidence will help you in all aspects of your life.
When you are fat and use to leading a sedentary lifestyle then leaving a life of fitness can be extremely hard, at least initially.
how many times have you been reading it Fitness Magazine I got all motivated to get in shape but then a few days later you gave up I went back to eating junk food and playing video games all of the time?
The good thing is it gets much easier to stay motivated about getting in shape the longer that you do it.
you want to lead a happier and more fulfilling life then I encourage you to start eating healthier and working out each day beginning right now regardless of how young or old you may be.
