At Seattle weight loss we know that the authors of the study are right – it’s not rocket science to know that obesity slows you down. I remember what it was like when I weighed 260 pounds. I couldn’t keep up with my friends and I frequently had to sit down and rest when spending the day at the shopping mall. Thanks to hypnosis for weight loss, I changed all that. After more than 40 years of being overweight and obese, I discovered I had a choice. I could continue to be fat and suffer with the diseases that result, or I could change what I ate, lose weight and become more active. For the past 16 years  I have used weight loss hypnosis to eat healthy and to motivate me to exercise. Allowing obesity to slow doesn’t have to be your lot in life. You do have a choice available to you to change and self hypnosis can help you do it.

Obesity Does Slow People Down

HealthDay News, April 5, 2013: Women who struggle with chronic obesity end up engaging in less and less routine physical activity, new research shows, confirming what may seem obvious to some.

The investigating team acknowledged that their observation so clearly aligns with conventional wisdom that it would be hard to describe it as “rocket science.” But they say theirs is the first study to rigorously establish what most scientists have long presumed to be the case: that obesity does indeed have a negative impact on an individual’s activity habits.

“An abundance of research has focused on factors that increase [the risk for] obesity, due to the many chronic diseases and conditions associated with it,” said study lead author Jared Tucker, currently a senior epidemiologist at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich. “And rightly so.”

However, physical inactivity is also independently associated with many of the same chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. But we don’t often think about factors that influence activity levels.

Our study suggests that obesity likely increases the risk of reducing physical activity levels in women. Therefore, it appears that physical inactivity and obesity may be involved in a feedback loop, in which lower levels of activity lead to weight gain, which then leads to lower levels of activity.

The result: Among the obese participants, physical activity was found to drop by 8 percent overall over the course of the 20-month study period. This was equivalent to a loss of 28 active minutes per week, the researchers said.

Non-obese women, on the other hand, showed no drop in their physical activity routines.

This finding highlights the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle and a healthy weight in order to prevent the start of this potential cycle of increasing risks.

Being obese gets tied to emotion and body image. You don’t want people watching you. You don’t feel comfortable going to a gym or a fitness class because people may be staring. Low self-esteem, poor body image and depression also oftentimes go along with obesity. There’s a lack of confidence that they can lose the weight, and that in trying to do it they’ll just bring unwanted attention to themselves.
