Why Does It Matter?
Many overweight people are often teased as children (and sometimes even as
adults) and plagued by self-doubt as long as they remain overweight.
They frequently go on weird diets and have little long-term
success. The outward problems of being considered a "fat"
person are very real and can cause a great deal of mental
anguish. But while many of us think of being obese or overweight
as a kind of image problem, it goes even deeper.
overweight puts you at risk for such serous conditions as
overweight you are, the higher the risk.
