Having too much excess fat on your body doesn't just affect how you look. Obesity makes it hard to do normal tasks, like even housework or walking the dog. Not only does obesity affect how you look and how comfortable you are, but it can seriously affect you health as well. There are many diseases that can result from being overweight or obese, many of which are life threatening.
The list of risks associated with obesity could go on and on. It's clear that it's better and safer to be at a healthy weight. If you're not right now, start eating healthier and exercising more.
