Oh wow! I am guilty of all of these. I'm a tiny person. I'm barely 4"11' and I'm almost 200 pounds. My doctor kept trying me on so many different medications and as a result I gained a lot of weight. I wasn't in control of the weight I gained and needed the medication for that time period so I used that as an excuse to eat more. I felt helpless. I am slowly losing the weight now but when I wasn't serious every single thing in this article I was guilty of. I have also gained a case of sleep apnea in the process. I'm hoping that the sleep apnea will go away once I am back at a healthy weight!

Excellent article. And thought provoking. I have a tendency to throw in the towel after a while of being bad but I realize now that It's only over when I say it's over.

In #1 it suggests telling a loved one your goals. It's just me, but anytime I tell anyone I'm going to lose weight, it stresses me even more and I start gaining. If its helpful for you, then go ahead and do it, if not its ok to be accountable to only yourself. Best wishes and good luck. :)

I like the last comment that say to stop comparing yourself with others. I joined Weight Watchers once and found it very demoralizing because everyone there could eat more than me and they were losing weight and I was not. I am very short and older and my reality is that 1200 calories will help me SLOWLY lose weight and 1400 calories will maintain my current weight. That group setting was very bad for me because my body size is not average, and I already have the exercise thing maxed out. So I have stopped doing group things because it got me into a "It's not fair" mentality which is not helpful.

While this is a good article, why on earth did it need to be spread across six pages? I have noticed this trend increasing, and it is really starting to get irritating. I know this is a free site, and the bills have to be paid by advertising, but this really is making me want to stop reading the articles on here.
One of my big wake-ups was when I could feel my own back fat touching another spot on my back. EW EW EW EW EW!

When you stand in the hospital ER looking down at your 79 year old dad and realize if you don't start NOW in your fifties, You will be laying in that ER bed with the same chronic diseases.
