I am obese. Is obesity a serious problem?

1 Answer

It is a serious problem both physically and psychologically. When we feel good physically, and feel good about ourselves, we do much better in life. When we are obese we set ourselves up for disease, cancer, orthopedic problems and there is an increased risk of fatigue and depression. In fact, obesity is one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. I recommend that you see a physician who is trained to treat obesity. You can find one near you by visiting:
