New Year’s resolutions usually come from a personal conviction that there is something about your life that’s not quite right and you want to fix it. Think about the most common resolutions out there. People resolve to quit smoking because they know it isn’t good for them. Others resolve to lose weight or begin an exercise routine because they don’t like how they look, they want to be more health conscious, or both. Alas, these and many other resolutions rely heavily on one’s willpower or personal discipline or incentive and, as such, tend to fail miserably. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what’s worse, the bad thing in your life that you just can’t beat or the fact that, once again, you broke your New Year’s resolution.
If you’re like most people, you have made a few resolutions for 2015. Since we’re already a few days into the New Year, you may have broken a few, if not all of them. Cheer up, bud. There’s always next year.
You may also be one of those men who identifies a problem, but believes there is no solution for it and you simply conclude that it’s something with which you have to live and the sooner you come to terms with that fact, the better off you’ll be. This may be the case if you’re one of the 40 to 60 percent of men who have gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia in the broadest, simplest term is a hormonal imbalance.
- Excess, localized fat
- Excess glandular tissue development
- A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
- The aforementioned may be present in one of both breasts
- Affects men of all ages at many different stages
- Can be the side effects of other disease, certain drugs, hereditary conditions, and hormonal changes
Sorry for dropping a clinical word on you like that. For such a common condition, gynecomastia isn’t widely known by its proper name. Most people are far more crude in how they describe it, but frankly, “man boobs,” or “man breasts,” are more effective names for identifying the condition that affects so many individuals, even if such terminology is a bit brash.
If you have man boobs, you know how embarrassing it can be to go to the pool, shower in the gym or do anything shirtless. Your self-image has taken a serious hit, but you’ve also probably concluded that it’s a simple consequence of your genes, your weight or your age. You deal with it by wearing shirts, sweaters or jackets that will draw attention away from your breasts. The problem with this belief is that on top of your poor body image, your sense of hopelessness about the problem actually adds to your misery. You didn’t make a New Year’s resolution to lose the man boobs, because you didn’t think there was anything you could do about them
