A lot of us would do almost anything, and I mean ANYTHING, to lose those extra pounds hanging on to our body like an image-sucking confidence-hampering leech. Starting from extreme dieting to excessive visits to the gym to practically starving ourselves only to have that coveted figure, we leave no stones unturned. While the latter will actually cause more adverse results in our body, rather than shaping it up, a healthy eating routine and exercise can actually help us get that shape that we yearn for. However this article is not about getting into shape because we can find numerous articles on the sole subject in the Internet. Instead, this article will talk about the changes that occur in the body after losing a significant amount of weight. These are some of the major physical changes that the body goes through after a tremendous weight reduction:
1. It hurts as the padding bursts
It sure does hurt. Earlier when you had all that fat, it used to act as a padded cushion to save you from getting hurt whenever you would fall or bump. When you lose the extra weight, along with the excess kilograms, you also lose your heavy padded savior. Thus, you are more prone to get bruised the next time you slip and fall down on your bottom. It’s not only when you fall. It even hurts to sit on hard surfaces such as wooden chairs or benches. It is just plain painful to hop on a hard chair or to be sitting on it for a prolonged period. However, the best thing about this adversity is that since it hurts, you will sit for a lesser time and thus walk or move more. As a result, that body will be more active and healthy and have lower tendency to gain weight again.
2. It feels so right to be light
The purpose of losing weight is served when you feel lighter every day, every minute, and every moment, that too, in more than just a single way. Of course you might want to overeat occasionally. However when you go through excessive weight loss, you will wonderfully discover that it is not possible for you to overeat. Yes, you heard it right. You will not be able to eat as much as you would when you are have extra pounds in the body. Even if you force yourself to eat, just to prove that you can, chances are that you might fall ill. You will usually get stomach aches if make an attempt to do so. Hence, your eyes tend to grow larger than your belly. You just wouldn’t want to eat excessively. Along with food, your appetite for alcohol shrinks as well. You would not have the mood to get severely drunk, and even if you do, you would not be able to drink that much. Thus, a lighter lifestyle results in less food, less alcohol and a healthier body.
3. Enjoy pep as the body takes shape
Another obvious objective of weight reduction is to get into shape. When you are able to do that by shedding lots of pounds, trust me, you will not be able to stop yourself from looking at and comparing your new photos with the old ones. The comparison between the old and new you itself can bring so much delight and self-confidence. Of course you have been anticipating this result for which you have worked so hard to lose all that weight. However witnessing it in reality with your own eyes is an astonishing feeling that is difficult to explain. You will get to ascertain what your actual shape is, which has been buried all these years under those layers of fat. Unearthing your unique shape is a sheer joy of its own measure. Many believe that it is in fact one of the most exhilarating aspect of the entire weight loss experience. Since everyone has a unique shape, be it in terms of the chin, face, neck, belly, abs or hips, finding which one is yours is surely something to work hard for.
