All of a sudden I realized how much bigger I am. How I keep buying bigger pants. How it’s harder to walk up and down stairs. Now I am going to have to lose weight. How did this happen? How am I going to lose all those pounds? To start losing weight let’s look at how you got overweight.
Slow Gradual – You love to eat. You love the taste of food. You love the big portions at restaurants. You love eating with people. While your young you can pull this off. As people age they slowly put on weight. Their metabolism slows. They have responsibilities. They exercise less. By the time they hit 40 they can be 20+ pounds overweight.
Emotional Eating – The boss says you have to finish today. The kids are yelling and screaming. You don’t have money to fix the car. Many people eat to deal with the daily stresses of life. It buffers the pain away. Some binge. Some eat a lot of sweets. Some overeat.
I Can’t Lose Weight – Many people think they can’t lose weight so they keep on eating.
Medications – Some medications have the side effect of gaining weight. Anti-depressants are well known for this.
Health – You might have a thyroid problem. You may have some other health problem. Check with your doctor.
Sugar – Some people can not eat just one cookie. They will have strong cravings to eat more. Sometimes it can be really strong. This packs on weight quickly.
Sit at a desk at work – No exercise. Come home watch TV.
Body Type – Some people are naturally big.
Old or Sick– Some people are too old or too sick to do much of anything especially worry about their weight..
Don’t Notice The Weight – Most people gain weight slowly over the years. Their pants get tight and they buy a larger pairs and try to just move on with their life. What can I do?
Don’t Make Adjustments – As you grow older you need to watch your weight. You need to eat more healthy food and less junk food. You have to watch your portions. You have to deal with more stress in your life. You have to adjust.
Doesn’t Care – I have a friend who is 69 years old and is 100 pounds overweight. He says he doesn’t care. I don’t know how someone couldn’t care.
DENIAL – I think some people block out that they are gaining weight. They believe they can’t do anything about it anyway.
GIVE UP – Just give up.
Look over this list and see how you gained so much weight. Is it time to start losing weight?
