The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Blog: Hidden Costs
First, I want to thank the NY Fashion Show models for coming out last night for the logistics meeting. The positive energy emanating from the group is intoxicating. The event will be MC’ed by Liz McEwen, head of the former Congressmen’s Spouse Association and her husband, Bob, was a former Congressman from Ohio. Entertainment will come in form of singer/songwriter Brooksie Wells, who played with Bobby Darin (no, Posner will NOT sing Mack the Knife at the event) and Nataliya and Donna are performing an incredible dance routine, which has been practiced for months. This is THE event in the area on May 19, so come on out and be a part of this gala…and bring those clothes for donation to ECHO.
“Costs” are sometime obvious. You go to dinner and pay your bill. The “cost” is on the check. You go to the pharmacy and pick up your blood pressure, diabetic,cholesterol or acid reflux meds. The “cost” is detailed to you by the pharmacy staff. ”Hidden costs” are those that you sometimes cannot see or place a dollar figure on. What are the hidden costs of being overweight? Discrimination at the workplace for promotions or raises, costs of gasoline for your auto, lost time at work secondary to illnesses or hospitalizations and more, Being overweight carries with it lots of hidden “costs”. Yet another reason for you to be resolute about your efforts to lose that weight. It will save you lots of money and emotional distress over time. And emotional issues are most certainly a hidden cost.
