I think we should also focus on the mental states of overweight persons.
For me it is an absolute fact that overweight develops mainly because we learned to eat, if we feel sad.
Also think about really bad situations in your childhood. Maybe my body wanted to have extra mass, because it "thinks"
it can handle bullying etc. better!
Its like an armor to defend you. And all that sadness is in us and whants to be released.
I dont see any thread here that focuses on these things.
Would love to discuss it.
Btw I'm always happy for support of my english skills ;-)

People gain it all back because they aren't armed with the right information. They lose it threw hard work -- starvation dieting plus manic workouts, but eventually they get tired. Instead of just knowing what the right foods are to eat.
They also don't make lifestyle changes like realizing you have to wake up and cook for the rest of your life (if you live in a country filled with toxic food).
Damn, that guy is fat!!!
You need some willpower to get over being such an ignorant bitch.People are weak; they have no willpower- period.
We are surrounded by ready-to-eat food and bombarded by messages to eat, which goes contrary to nature, where people would have to actively seek food if they were to have something to eat. And the food we are surrounded by is engineered to leave us unsatisfied and craving more.
I'm definitely not weak nd I don't lack willpower. What I lacked was information about how my body processed different foods. I spent decades dieting and regaining the moment I allowed carbs back in. After years of hard work with food choices and exercising I have been maintaining 100 pounds off my body for over 3 years. I've eaten low carb and came to PB on January 1st. Right now I'm on day 10 of a strict Whole30. I'd still like to let go of 5-10 pounds to be a bit leaner, but if I stayed this weight forever, I'd be healthy.
It's true that many people regain because we don't change habits that led us to obesity in the first place. I don't want to be one of those. Don't groan too loud, but I do go to WW once a week because I made a life commitment to be at Lifetime Goal so that it's free. While I don't eat their food, or count the points, it helps me by knowing I'll get on that scale once a month. It's kept off many food binges in the last three years. I'm not as likely to go down a slippery slope because I hold myself accountable. It just gives me a bit more outside motivation. And yes the motivation has to come from within but we each have our own "stuff". This one apparently works for me.
Most people are not even aware of the habits they have that work against them. It seems so normal to eat just like everybody else, or to eat the way we were raised.It's true that many people regain because we don't change habits that led us to obesity in the first place.
Fierce is a nutcase with eating disorders galore (you should see her scary blog), she worships the "feet together, thighs apart" look and she's an attention whore. Best to put her on ignore.
