Facing the world with obesity is not that easy, obesity can make your life difficult but the good thing is that obesity is preventable. Obesity can lead you into many social, physical and psychological problems.
Social problems and obesity:
Obese people find it difficult to face social gatherings because lots of people taunt and poke fun of obese people. Obesity becomes a social stigma and people take obese people useless and in reality obese people can not perform several tasks that other people can. In shopping malls they cannot carry heavy grocery bags, they cannot climb stairs and they feel tired very soon, as a result people try to avoid them and they do not involve them in their tasks. They often feel deprived and lonely. Often people judge people by their appearance and people make fun of their appearance. In cliques friends feel like obese people are a burden and they cannot enjoy their life due to their presence. They cannot use the usual toilet seat and seats in parks, cinemas and malls are designed for normal weight people, obese people cannot fit in these areas. Due to the social problems they become alone and they hide themselves in their cocoons. It needs lots of confidence to face the world with obesity.
Physical problems and obesity:
Obesity affects your health and quality of life. Obesity is the main reason behind many diseases like cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes and some types of cancer. Sometimes obesity causes joint problems because of excess weight people feel tired and they cannot do similar chores that normal weight people can. Respiratory problems can also result due to obesity. People find it difficult to breathe if they are obese. These are only some problems and there might be other problems that obese people can go through, for example, dental problems can result because obesity is actually the result of eating lots of sugary food.
Psychological problems and obesity:
Mental and emotional problems can also occur due to obesity. Obese people feel great many emotional problems like anxiety, fear and depression. Hypertension is very common in obese people. In one of the study it was studied that whether obesity effects mental satisfaction and it was found that most of the obese people suffered from hypertension too.
