If you have been regular at the gym, sweating it out and even keeping a tab on your diet, and still not losing weight, then probably that's because you have an ideal body weight. When the scales are not shifting towards the left, it means that you need not try to shed those extra pounds. However, in some cases, it might be the other way around. Sometimes you might not be losing weight due to lack in effort. In this case, calculate your BMI and see if you are overweight or not and work accordingly.
The most dangerous form of fat is abdominal fat or belly fat. So if your belly is home to such fat, you need to lose weight. However, if you have the ideal waist circumference, you need not go through the struggles of weight loss. A healthy waist circumference for men is 40 inches and for women, it should be less than 35 inches.
A lot of lethargy and fatigue comes with excess body fat. But if you have the ideal body weight, you may not experience too much fatigue. Instead, you will always be high on energy.
You might be swayed by the idea of weight loss but that little effort gives you a hard time. Losing weight is not an easy goal to accomplish, however, if it is making you miserable, then that's probably because you don't need it. If you have been putting all the effort needed for weight loss and still not able to achieve it, then that is probably because you have an ideal body weight.
Obesity interferes with your sleep patterns as well. You are likely to get interrupted and disturbed sleep. However, if you have the ideal body weight, you might not experience a disturbed sleep.
