We live in a world where appearance seems to be everything. You're either too thin or too big to be good enough by the media's standards, so how can you stand a chance? Well, first off, developing realistic expectations that aren't based off photoshopped people is a good start. Thankfully, the media has been starting to move away from that method of "beauty," but that doesn't mean it's much better. Despite this, there is a point where being too thin or too heavy begins to have negative effects on your health. While one side (thin) has a clear method of fixing the problem (not that it makes it easier), people who are on the larger side have many options to lose weight, though they all require significant commitments and motivation.

I get it, having to commit to the gym all the time isn't for everyone and it also seems like more work than it needs to be,

Thankfully, walking is a great alternative.
