Would you say that I'm healthy ? Technically, I have three diseases.
Would you rather be overweight, out of shape and not have these ailments? Or, if you were overweight would these problems be worse for you? Thats the thing I wonder about. I mean I have two of those problems myself. I have had asthma since before I was a year old and a few years ago started having high blood pressure. And for a while those problems were much worse for me as I had kind of let myself go a little bit. The blood pressure was probably from a combination of terrible diet, stressful job and very little activity.
My asthma is completely under control now with a once a day med and my bp meds have been cut by 75%. So, did losing about 20 pounds and maybe even more fat improve my health?
