Have you ever heard about "Happy Pounds"?
When you get married, the last thing on your mind is weight gain. But according to a study published in the scientific journal, Health Psychology, young people who are satisfied in their marriage tend to gain weight shortly after their nuptials!
Dr. Andrew Meltzer, lead author of the study said, “On average, spouses who were more satisfied with their marriage were less likely to consider leaving their marriage, and they gained more weight over time… In contract, couples who were less satisfied in their relationship tended to gain less weight over time.”
This tells us that people correlate their weight with cosmetics and not actually their overall health. Which goes to prove the other theory that if working out didn’t change people’s physical appearance, then almost no one would go to the gym. Which shouldn’t be your main factor in working out.
Those happy pounds could lead to more serious health issues in the long run by something that you can easily take control of today!
There’s no magic potion for weight loss. It’s as simple as eating right and working out. It does take effort and commitment and should be a lifestyle change and not a fad. Don’t let procrastination lead you to failure. We all know they better we eat and when we move our body, ultimately we feel better, our confidence rises, and our relationships improve even more.
