There are many health downsides to being overweight. I can’t possibly cover them all but here’s a reminder of just some of them. It does not make comfortable reading – but it’s something every overweight person whatever his or her age should take a close look at, however much you may not want to.

The majority of people never follow this exercise through even though they have read or been told to do it on numerous occasions. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why do all the books and professionals tell you to do the same?
Fork in the Road
It’s up to you…. you’re at the fork in the road of your life. Will you decide to keep heading down that same old road? It’s the easiest thing in the world to do: you wouldn’t have to make any effort at all. Or are you prepared to change your course with just a little bit of effort?
Stand at that fork in the road and just stop and think. Think what you’d feel like a year from now if nothing changes. You carry on doing exactly what you’re doing. You’ll have had another year of being overweight, feeling bad about yourself, comfort eating, looking older, feeling terrible, getting out of breath. If nothing changes in your life just how overweight will you be next year? Don’t be under the illusion you’ll be the same as you are now because you won’t. It’ll be worse. It always is. Maybe much worse.
But to feel like that for another year is not why you looking for a less aggression ways it is to change from inside out to change the way you think and feel it is he Virtual Mind Band therapy. Take yourself back to the fork in the road and have a look at how it’s going to feel different if you take the other road. Make a little bit of effort. Make a few changes. So a year ahead on this road, you can see all the positive things – you’re weight is less than a year ago, you’re fitter, you look in the mirror and you look a lot younger, you have plenty of energy, your clothes fit you, you’re feeling good about yourself, if you’ve got a partner they’re looking at you admiringly, everything’s great in your family, your relationship, your whole life; everything’s so much better and there are loads of positive things to focus on.
