Overweight and dating
Overweight and dating - Mandy s cam
Obese mothers had a 50 percent higher risk of having a child with any kind of neurodevelopmental disorders, while overweight women had a 17 percent higher risk.
Online dating sites and our families try to sell us a dream that says you can only be happy when you’re with “the one” happily ever after.
I know that sounds like a platitude, but I’ve been through this dating game, and I know how it feels. Maybe you’re the one getting dumped, and every time, it feels like a punch in the stomach.
But you’re absolutely desirable and worthy of love, no matter how you look.
Professor Dr Bernard Fuemmeler of the Virginia Commonwealth University explained: 'Prenatal exposure to environmental toxins, stress and nutrition have all been linked to neurodevelopmental outcomes in children.'Of note, the increase in prevalence of neurodevelopmental problems has also been paralleled by an increase in prevalence of obesity in society.'This parallel, along with preclinical data linking high-fat diet and pre-pregnancy obesity to errant brain and behavioural development in offspring, have led to speculation that there may be a link between these two recent trends.'Correspondingly, there has been growing attention to maternal weight status, either pre-pregnancy weight or excess gestational weight gain, on children's neurodevelopmental outcomes.'The team found there was a 58 percent increased risk of developmental delay and a 42 percent increased risk of emotional or behavioral problems among children of obese women as opposed to children of healthy-weight women.
Being obese during pregnancy also increases the risk of gestational diabetes that has been linked to lower cognitive test scores and behavioral problems and premature births.

The findings from the Virginia Commonwealth University highlight the direct implications the current obesity epidemic could have on the generations to come.
Autism, ADHD and other behavioral problems have increased over recent decades, as has obesity.
Breaking through that took some time and some introspection. Don’t pretend to like something you don't just to seem more desirable. It’s easy to focus hard on “the one” — is this person “the one”?
I had to completely change my thinking about myself. Why shouldn’t we feel like we can be loved and cherished? It’s okay to be different, and if that’s a problem in your budding relationship, then it’s not for you. Specifically, is this person the only one who will ever show interest in me? What’s important is that I’m accepting myself for who I am and finding people who accept me, whether we end up together forever or not.
You probably aren’t going to do better than you are right now, so you’ve got to keep going with what you’ve got.
