Reddwolf, you are right...not everyone does have weight-related health issues. YET. I always had (and still do) great cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure numbers. However, as I've gotten into my middle forties, I've been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees...a DIRECT result of carrying too much weight over the years. The cartilage is worn down from too much pressure on my knees. It CAN happen. Hopefully it won't, but it can.
I love the idea of losing 10%, it's how I'm doing my journey, ten percent (actually five percent) at a time. Small, do-able goals.
