Extra weight causes cancer

I was watching the news last night where scientists were discussing a link between obesity and cancer. Apparently being overweight can be one of the main causes of up to 20 different cancers. Studies found that being overweight increases the risk of breast cancer, uterus and colon cancer, kidney, stomach and prostate cancers, as well as many others. You can read the details of this report at: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/obesity

If that isn't a good enough reason to get your weight under control, then I'm not sure what is? It certainly is enough to keep me on my healthy eating plan. Talking about my healthy eating plan, I've lost 2 kilo's the last couple of weeks, bringing me down to 100 kilo's. One more kilo to go until I reach my first major milestone of weighing under 100 kilo's. Then it's time to reset goals again.
