It turns out thinking you're overweight

could be worse for you than being overweight.In a new study in the American Journal of PublicHealth, researchers asked 150,000 adults abouttheir current weight, their ideal weight, andhow often they felt unhealthy. The less satisfiedpeople were with their size, the more unhealthythey felt, regardless of how much they weighed."The brain is both the source of our emotionsand the control center for our physiology," sayslead author Peter Muennig, M.D. "So if you'redepressed or stressed, it changes things likeblood pressure. If these emotions are chronic,that can lead to disease." To up your well–being,focus on what your body can do, not howmany pounds it weighs. After you exercise, forexample, write down how far you ran, thentry increasing that number each time.
