When you are drinking the tap water, you are basically drinking all the prescription drugs in your community.  They are not able to be filtered out in the community water system.

How to Start Exercising When You're Already Overweight

How to Start Exercising When You're Already Overweight | Living Well Connections | Scoop.it

Healthy living isn't easy. For some, it comes naturally, but for those folks who are already overweight—large enough that it's difficult or even painful to do what thinner people can do—it's even tougher to get started. Here are some tips to help.

 

Ever since I was a teenager I've struggled with my weight. Not necessarily from a health perspective—I've always been pretty healthy, but I've struggled because I want to look better, feel more energetic, and get all of those great benefits that fitness offers. However, when you're already overweight, a lot of the activities that other people just pick up without trying are either impossible or feel like death. High Intensity Interval Training? Hot yoga? Insanity? Crossfit? Even jogging? You've got to be kidding....
