  • >> Male Speaker: Weight gain is the sum of little things that

  • add up over time: choosing the escalator instead of the stairs,

  • eating two helpings of dinner, and so on, and so on.

  • Ever wonder why you're winded or your joints ache, and blame

  • it on your age?

  • Well, think about your weight.

  • Imagine carrying a 10-pound bag everywhere you go.

  • Just 10 pounds adds more than 30 pounds of force to your knees.

  • So those achy knees might mean you need better habits.

  • By realizing you're overweight and by taking control now, you

  • may lower the risk of developing serious health problems, like

  • heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes,

  • gallstones and some cancers.

  • Losing just 5 percent of your body weight may also decrease

  • the stress you're putting on your body.

  • That means doing more of the things you enjoy, without

  • the aches and pains.

  • It's the little things that make up the weight gain, and

  • it's the little things that will help take it back off.

  • Wouldn't you like to drop the weight and stop picking up more?

  • Obesity happens one pound at a time.

  • So does preventing it.
