Stress might also stop someone’s motivation and ability for positive behaviors with their weight. Obesity may also result in a person being more likely to have a psychological health issues. This can mess up a person mood irritability, reduced self confidence, and excess stress because of being obese. In the United States of America today obesity is higher than it has ever been. During the last ten years the obesity level has grew by 10 percent based on the state. During the past 20 years the obesity level has grew at a higher level. In 2010 there isn't any state which has below 20 % of the inhabitants which is fat, and some states have an occurrence of 30% or higher. Currently one third of grownups in the United States is fat at 33.8%, together with 17 % of kids age range 2 - 19 years are fat (CDC, 2012). Obesity may cause a lot of health issues. Some long term health problems would be Diabetes type 2, high blood pressure levels and heart illnesses. Short term problems for obesity are high blood pressure levels.

One more instance is the fact that people reside in a place which is unsafe or there isn't an area to visit to have the right physical exercises. Some other elements which can be regarded as unmanageable might be a demise in the household which leads to major depression and may result in person to become fat some medical issues, and getting older. Although, some might be on the line between manageable and unmanageable based on the way I see it.
