I don’t know but have you ever realized that you lost some weight and the issue bothered you so much? Well, you are not alone. This is an issue that most people take as very sensitive. I know of some cultures where even commenting to someone that they have lost weight is a serious offence.
True, in the current world where deadly maladies like HIV and AIDS are common, most times people mistakenly associate weight loss with it. In some cultures where people believe in curses, weight loss is usually the significant sign. In short, weight loss is associated with near death.
It is important to know that it is not at all times that weight loss is a cause of alarm. At times it could just be a normal reaction of the body. It is possible to lose weight unintentionally if you have had any of the following conditions.
Changed diets or changed activity levels. This may be due to skipping meals or sudden changes in daily hectic schedules
Mood changes like stress or depression can also cause you to lose weight
Medication taken like antidepressants
Inflammatory bowel disease
Poor nutrient absorption
Dental problems that make chewing difficult
If you have any of the above conditions it is most likely that your body may react by losing some weight. If you are already aware of that, you will then need to worry unless the weight lost is so significant and causing other problems. However, there are other situations when you may be forced to see a doctor or an expert to address your weight loss problem. The very first reason is when you are not so sure of what is causing the weight loss. This is the time when you will need to adhere to the doctor’s prescription in terms of diet and other recommendations.
You need to be careful not to rush into assuming that your weight loss is normal. You must be sure of what is causing the weight loss and address the issue before it spills. Weight loss can derail your progress. It can affect your career and even affect your relationship. This is a clear indication that it is not an issue to be taken for granted.
Do not just sit back. Your weight loss can even affect your family. It can even affect you psychologically and get even worse. For example if you are losing weight and you cant figure out why, people around you begin to spread baseless rumors about you then it is likely that you will even lose more weight. This is not what we want. We must be keen to arrest the situation while it is still young.
Finally, you need to always keep in mind that your weight is in your hands. You can have it weigh you down if you choose. If it is too much, we do not like it. If it is too low, we still don’t like it. It is up to you to decide where you want it. It is very possible to have the weight you desire. All the tips are known to us. Choose wisely and choose the appropriate weight for you.
