What is the correlation between weight loss and sex drive, or is there even a correlation? We all know that sex is a very physical activity and it's simply easier to do when you are at the proper body weight and in good condition.
It's also common to think that losing weight will make you more attractive to your partner, which may or may not be the case.
What many people don't realize is that weight loss can make them more interested in sex too. Beyond the physical aspect of sex there is a very strong and deep emotional and psychological component as well.
If losing weight and getting in better shape makes you feel better about yourself, it's very likely that that will take away many of the inhibitions that you may have had and make you want to have sex more often.
It's simple, when you feel sexy, attractive and desirable, you act more sexy attractive and desirable. You may find that you simply want to be intimate with your partner more often. This is an element that many people fail to realize when it comes to weight loss.
They often think that the only benefit is either to their partner or to themselves but only on a physical level. In reality it can simply make you desire sex more often.
Talk about a strong motivation to get in better shape: being more desirable to your partner and having a higher sex drive yourself (not to mention lessening your risk for heart attack, stroke and diabetes).
If you want to go for it and find out just how you can bring sexy back, but aren't sure where to start, the first place you should start is at your doctors office. Make an appointment and find out what, if any, restrictions you may have for exercising.
Even if you have health issues, there is almost always a way to work around it and still get some physical (non sexual) activity into your daily life.
One of the most common, and easily avoidable,mistakes that many people make is to set unrealistic goals for themselves. They want it to happen quickly and they think that they will work really hard. The fact is that many people simply will find it hard to make major and drastic lifestyle changes right off the bat. For many, it's better to set smaller, more achievable goals and when those have been conquered, add more.
So instead of vowing to run a marathon in a few weeks why not just park your car a little further from the entrance to the grocery store? Or, how about taking the steps more often? These are simple, small changes that anyone can make and it's much more likely that you can stick with it. The more small goals you stick with, the more you can move on to set larger goals.
Now that you know about the relationship between weight loss and sex drive, it's time to get started. You can make a huge difference on all aspects of your life one small step at a time.
