How Can You Come Out Of Hiding?

Memorial Day weekend signifies the start of the summer season.  Pool parties, beach events and other water-oriented activities are a common part of the landscape.  To attend these events, we usually need to wear the attire conducive to swimming and hanging out in the warm/hot summer breezes.

I have been told by many patients that they purposefully avoid attending these summer, water oriented gatherings because of self-consciousness.  The weight control problem translates into a fear of being seen in swimsuits, shorts or other summer attire. Rather than partake of the fun event, a number of overweight/obese people will stay away.

It is NOT too late to shed a good amount of weight and allow your self-confidence to rise.  Remember that 70% of Americans are overweight/obese so at all of these events, you will not be the only person there that has a BMI greater than 25.  

Effective weight control translates into heightened levels of confidence and self-esteem.    Although it is Memorial Day, we also are weeks away from July 4th and the rest of the summer.  Get motivated NOW to follow the journey needed to shed the weight.  Health, happiness and an eagerness to attend those fun pool/beach events await you.
