There are many reasons why morbid obesity is so bad and these have absolutely nothing to do with cosmetics. Many people want to be thin because they want to be attractive. Who defines attractive anyway. Our culture shows you all these super models who are pretty much anorexic and they tell you that is the way you should look. The truth is most of these type of people are self centered and self-indulgent.  The truth is that looking good should not be a concern when you need to get morbid obesity under control. The bottom line is that morbid obesity can kill you.

For a morbidly obese person the odds of reaching a normal life span are one seventh of a normal person. That is ten years. You can make changes now and add years onto your life. There are a lot of methods for getting weight under control from dieting to exercise, but these methods do not work for a lot of people and just causes depression which causes them to eat more and gain more weight. Sometimes getting your weight under control requires weight loss surgery in the form of one of the weight loss surgery procedures, such as Roux-en-Y weight loss surgery, sleeve gastrectomy with duodenal switch, laparoscopic gastric banding , commonly known as lap-band surgery, and the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy or VSG. The surgery chosen depends upon your individual preferences and goals for your weight loss as they are all different weight loss surgery procedures and they have different results.
