Overweight? You're Not Alone. Obesity in America is a Growing Health Issue.

It's a big world out there and with obesity on the rise, it's getting even bigger.  

If you're one of the millions impacted by weight gain, you're not alone - even though it's a common feeling amid those battling the Battle of the Bulge.

There are probably only a handful of people since time began, that went on a diet, lost the weight and never dieted again.  

- Diets come, diets go.

- Dieting is stressful!  

- Dieting is a continuous conscious effort that takes planning, willpower, and determination.

You may feel alone, out of place and even unloved.  

But we advise that you don't spend too much time moping about those unhappy feelings and that you do something to change those feelings into happy ones.

Unfortunately, just because obesity is on the increase doesn't mean that we should find a sense of security in knowing that others are in the same boat because the trouble with this boat is that it is faulty. It's full of holes and you just might find yourself sitting over one just before it starts to sink.

And what fun is that we ask?

It's best to jump ship and join the health-kick group - only you'll want to stay with this healthier eating plan because you'll not only feel better, you'll look better, be able to think sharper and feel that wonderful feeling of accomplishment.

Is it easy, losing weight?  

Heck no. It's almost as bad as having a baby, or at least it was in my case. And I had more than a baker's dozen watermelons to lose rather than just one.

The downside is that it requires about the same amount of time from conception to birth to lose that much weight - and it has its ups and downs. In the event that motivation wanes, so do the results - so it's vital to the success of the plan to remain as motivated as possible.

Here is where Diet Bites enters the picture.

Attractive at Any Size

Beautiful & Confident at Any Size

Let's look into Jane's life to explore this touchy weight topic further. Jane is a young mother in her mid-thirties, five foot two inches in height and weighs 210 pounds. She is very conscious of her weight -sort of like some people who are embarrassed if they don't have teeth so white that they glow in the dark, which actually is unnatural in itself.

Ultra white teeth are the opposite of what nature intended, just like those extra pounds that Jane is dealing with. However, people in general tend to overlook some areas of imperfection over others.

Weight is rarely overlooked and one is often judged on their level of intelligence, their level of beauty and even their personality based on weight.

No wonder Jane is so self conscious!

Jane has tried to lose weight more times than she cares to count. At times she achieved great weight loss success while other times the diet didn't last more than a few hours.

It was difficult at best trying to juggle a career, motherhood and wifey-hood.

Jane hasn't felt attractive in years, and whenever she goes to the movies or watches the tele - those svelte actresses make her even more self-conscious of her weight. At least her husband isn't continually picking on her because of her weight, and that was probably the only plus moment in Jane's life - and yes, those crummy plus-sized clothes.

She hopes that at some point she will be able to lose all the excess weight, and until then she will continue feeling very self-conscious and guilty over the weight she has gained. What Jane doesn't realize is that being attractive is more than teeny-tiny numbers on a scale. Personality rules!

There are so many overweight actors and actresses who are dear to many of us. And Jane can do a lot to bring out the beauty locked within. Anyone who is overweightcan be attractive!

Here are a few tips that will assist Jane - or anyone who is feeling self-conscious about their weight and who wants to feel attractive and beautiful again.

Tips for Anyone Self-Conscious About Being Overweight

Keep in mind that beauty is a state of mind. When one feels beautiful - one IS beautiful!

How many times have you felt like someone was avoiding you because you asked a question and they didn't answer? However, later you discover that the individual has not answered your question because they had not heard your question.

Point to Ponder: Just because we feel certain emotions doesn't mean that the people around us are feeling those same emotions. While an individual may feel self-conscious about their weight, the person they are interactingwith my in turn be thinking, " What a delightful person! I'd love to know more about her/him."

Stand up tall and proud - get those shoulders to a state of square.

Slouching can add false pounds to the body, making one appear to weigh more than they actually do. And when one is self-conscious about their weight it is generally accompanied with poor posture which assists in expressing mood.

Practice sitting up straight, as well as standing up straight throughout the day. Like right straight are you sitting in your chair? Don't move just yet! Instead, look down and view your tummy area, as well as the chest area.

Now, readjust your posture, sitting up straight, readjusting your poster. Look down and view the difference. Substantial, isn't it!

For females, be sure to wear a properly fitting bra which can take pounds off without a diet.

White is not kind to shapes and sizes.

White clothing, including women's white stockings can add pounds to one's shape. Darker colors are kinder and work to lend a thinner appearance.


Try an experiment. If you have a white outfit, put it on and take a picture. Next, try on a darker outfit and again take a picture. Compare the differences.

Tans, Belts, Wide Rimmed Hats, Shoes & Swimsuits

- A tanned body works like the 'darker outfit' example above in lending a thinner shape.

- Belts are tricky as they work both for and against our shapes. While Lady Fay may look thinner with a belt around her garment, Lady Anne may not as the belt serves to accentuate her wider hips.

- Wide rimmed hats can assist in balancing weight and may lend a thinner appearance.

- Taller shoes can stretch one's appearance creating a leaner appearance.

- When shopping for swimsuits, look for the ones that have the little skirts attached which conceal the area where the legs meet. Wraps are also a great grab, and are very fashionable.

In Summary

Anyone can be beautiful or handsome at any weight and any size. The size of one's heart rules over the size of one's body. Be proud of who you are - no matter what you look like or how much you weigh. There is only one you and there will never be anyone else like you.
