The Silent And Unknown Downside To Losing Weight And Getting Fit

This may sound like something ridiculous and actually most people might laugh at it because it is quite funny, but this article is to share with you the biggest downside to losing weight. This downside affects more so than anything else your wallet or pocket book and is often overlooked by many but soon realized very quickly when the pounds start falling off.

Now as far as health goes there really isn’t much downside if someone is losing weight properly. Assuming that the weight loss isn’t occurring with some eastern European super model named Helga who is trying to go from a size 0 to a size -2. Most that are losing weight and doing it the right way via exercise workout routines and proper eating habits verses plunging their finger down their throat are losing weight properly. You will incur no health related downside risk only the upside of having a healthier life one free from the constant emotional and physical baggage that being obese brings.

The downside to this rapid weight loss though comes like a thief in the night and usually catches the unsuspecting slimmed down man or women by complete surprise. The downside is of course (if you haven’t guessed it by now) that your current wardrobe will need to be completely revamped because any of your existing clothes will fit not like a glove any more but more like a hefty bag.

This is the last thing anyone who has worked their butt off to lose weight wants. Just imagine yourself working harder than ever to not only feel great but look great and then come to find that when it’s your time to shine and show off your new body you have nothing but clothes that look like bags hanging off of you. This can actually be not just a shocker but quite depressing. BOLA TANGKAS
