Is weight gain costing you money?

You bet.  This study from the Center for Health Research shows a yearly increase in healthcare costs up to $700 more in patients with a greater than 20lb weight gain in 3 years or under.  The average was $561.  Preventing weight gain and/or reversing weight gain seems to bring those numbers right back down.  So hop off the laptop, lace up your shoes, get some fresh air, and bask in the pleasure of cutting costs.
