3 Influential 🌈 Reasons NOT ❌ to Lose Weight ⚖️ ...


Looking for some reasons to not lose weight? As any doctor, fitness instructor, life coach, chiropractor, physical therapist, or nutritionist will tell you in a heartbeat, there are a thousand and one reasons for someone overweight to take the step and blast those extra pounds. Overall life expectancy and quality of life is improved drastically! Mobility is increased! Mood is more stable! The risk of deadly diseases is decreased! I am all for people losing weight (especially if their health is being negatively impacted), and I believe that a vast majority of the arguments for losing weight are good ones! But even among a sea of good reasons, there are always a few bad ones, and the following three reasons to not lose weight certainly take the cake (literally and figuratively) in that department.

1. A Love Interest

Trying to find love is one of the top reasons to not lose weight. We've all been there. The man or woman with the flowing locks and the biceps for days that you know you could land if you just dropped a few more pounds. You can just imagine them whisking you off onto a cruise for your tropical honeymoon, lifting you off the ground with those big strong arms and holding you as you both stare blissfully into the sunset. But let me tell you something, if it takes you losing a few pounds for them to notice you, they aren't worth it.

What if, a few years down the road, you have a child and can't lose the weight again? What if you develop diabetes or a thyroid condition? If it took you losing weight for them to find you attractive in the first place, can you really count on them to be there for you if life takes a turn where you gain it back? Do you really want the story of love that you pass on to your children to be based on you, the woman, changing a meaningless physical detail in order to attract a man? I don't think so. Which brings us to reason number two!
