How to React to Rude Comments About Your Weight

Most of us have gotten them at one time or another; those "not so nice" comments from well-meaning friends and family. "Have you put on a little bit of weight?" "That dress used to be looser on you, didn't it?" "[sing-song voice] ... Someone is growing a set of love handles..." They don't mean to be cruel, but sometimes people don't realize how hurtful their comments can be.

Then there are the comments and snickers from strangers, which can be even more hurtful because they are coming from people who don't know you at all; they are simply judging you by your appearance. It's not fun to receive reactions like these, and it's all too easy to take them personally.

It's hard to know how to handle things like this. Do you fling back an insult or two of your own? Say nothing and suffer in silence? Vow to "show them" when you've lost all the weight and look great?

Healthy Eating Advantages - Why Should You Eat Healthy?

Weight loss is not just about seeing a smaller number on the scale or wearing clothes in a smaller size -- it's all about learning how to take better care of your body and improve your health. There are so many healthy eating advantages even beyond weight loss, however. Take a look at some of the biggest advantages below:

#1 - More energy.

Being undernourished makes you feel exhausted, weak, and sluggish. Having tons of energy and feeling strong is just one of many healthy eating advantages. Imagine waking up each morning and eagerly getting out of bed to start your day. Imagine having plenty of energy to carry you through the day, no matter how busy it is. Imagine going to bed each night feeling proud of all you accomplished during the day, and feeling like you still have energy to spare. By the way, your quality of sleep is better when you eat healthy too, so you wake up feeling refreshed instead of foggy-headed and still tired.

Running for Weight Loss: Tips for Getting Started Safely

Running is a great exercise to help with weight loss, simply because it helps you burn a lot of calories, and the more calories you burn, the more of a calorie deficit you create. However, running is a pretty intense exercise that isn't for everyone.

If you are very overweight or out of shape, if you have joint problems, back problems, or respiratory problems, running probably isn't the best choice for you and you may feel more comfortable with a low-impact exercise like walking, swimming or bicycling.

Focus on the Positive and Ditch the Negative

When you're on a diet or simply trying to eat better and lose weight, there is a tendency to focus on the negative. Have you ever done this? "Darn, I only lost a pound, I was hoping for at least two pounds." "I shouldn't have eaten that bagel yesterday morning, the thing was almost as big as my head." "That extra serving of pasta at dinner last night was a bad idea. Why did I do that?" "Will this weight EVER come off? At this rate I won't reach my goal until I'm 90!"
