Obeseity vs Overweight

One of the signs that you may need to lose weight is if you are obese. Many people do not realize that there is a difference in being overweight and being obese. If you are diagnosed as being obese you should be greatly concerned for your health. Obesity has been linked to many health related issues.

Another one of the signs that you need to lose weight is if you have been told to do so by friends or family members. Unfortunately many individuals are embarrassed or become upset when they are told that they need to lose weight. What you need to remember is that the individual mentioning your weight to you likely is not as concerned with your appearance as they are with your health.
