Being Overweight





You are not happy because you are fat and being fat makes every day unhappy.

Being fat is physically and emotionally painful. It diminishes the quality of the good things in life and it will ultimately bring about an early demise. So being overweight darkens every good thing that you achieve in your life and even prevents some things from happening at all.

Socially, being fat is hard to deal with because you  feel that you are looked down upon by people even when they are not doing so maliciously. It may be human nature. You know, "survival of the fittest". Also, you feel as though you are being taken advantage of by companies and people that want fat people to buy their latest "miracle pill" or prepackaged food that will help them lose the weight.

We, as a society, are growing larger and have become a big market for high dollar fast fixes. We are not getting the fix because it is an illusion.

You have an addiction and there needs to be dedication and sacrifice to cure addictions. If you had a drug or alcohol addiction you would go to rehab.

You need to change the behaviors that have allowed you to be in this situation in the first place. To permanently lose the weight you must learn to be more responsible to yourself.

But how nutty is spending a fortune on miracle weight loss drugs or fad diets that never seem to have lasting results or dangerous surgeries that cost about the same as a luxury car?

Living your life without health insurance because you are considered too high risk.

What about the fact that only 3% of weight loss attempts are permanently successful?

What about the anxiety, depression and pain involved in everyday activities when you are fat?

Do you want to miss out on birthdays, graduation, marriages and grandkids because you did not take your life back.

That, to me, is nuts.

Losing the weight will be the easy part. To keep the weight off in the future maintain a proper diet and level of activity needed, as well as remember how easy it is to gain weight and difficult to lose it.


We have become conditioned to believe that there is an answer in a pill or cream or drink or machine that will fix it for us. We lost sight of the fact that we are the most incredible machine ever built, capable of great heroism, ingenuity and strength.

The human race has achieved great feats solely on the efforts of the individual. Building pyramids, settling frontiers and walking on the moon are a few examples.

We each have the strength and ability to do anything we want. Losing weight is a choice the same as continuing to exist in this terrible condition is a choice. You have decided to live! It really is a simple decision when you think about it.



This effort is not going to be without sacrifice,  pale in significance when reckoned with the consequences of doing nothing.

You can not get another life. That which is most precious is the one thing that cannot be bought for any

Hint:  When you are standing in the shower, if you have to bend over to see your pubic area, do something about it Now.
