7 Reasons You’re Fat and Why You’ll Probably Stay Fat

We fat people are a minority. We are looked upon as different. Kids look at us differently. Adults look at us differently. Its a sad fact that people are judged on their appearance in today’s modern society, even after all the talks of “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” Today I’m going to give you seven good reasons why you’re fat and why you’ll probably stay fat.

  1. You’re Lazy. Plain and simple. The thought of exercising just makes you want another 200 calorie soda.
  2. Your job rules your life. Whether you’re a full-time mom or a business executive, you probably don’t have time to eat healthy.
  3. You have too much free time to spend eating. If you did more things rather than watch TV or sit at the computer chatting on facebook, maybe you could lose weight
  4. You work from home and have a house full of goodies. The temptation is all around you. Doritos in the cabinet, cookies in the jar, ice cream in the freezer. Forget salad!
  5. You eat anger/depression away. You can’t help but hate the world, your job, your car, your kids, your friends, your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse. Why not have another Oreo?
  6. Your friends are fat and they drag you down. They eat out a lot, they snack, they order pizza/chinese and invite you over. It’s inevitable to happen.
  7. You just don’t care about calories, fat content, carbs, you eat what you want because you only get one life to live.

How do we correct these issues?

There’s no simple way to stop a horrible habit. Fact is, you make goals and never follow through. It’s a bad character flaw and we have it and hate ourselves for it. I don’t expect you to change your life style in order to be thin and conform. If you’re happy with who you are, stay that way and don’t let anyone pull you down.

Take your problem one step at a time, attempt to eliminate the things that are causing you to be overweight and unhappy. Like I said, don’t become a vegetarian or vow to never eat chocolate again, just think little. Moderate how you intake these fatty (yet delicious) foods, slowly adjust your body to different and better eating habits. Change your thinking, control your mind, and it’ll change your body.

    Its true, I work from home and its far too easy just to raid the fridge when feeling a little bored 🙂

    Nice article, when you work from home you def have to get out to do some form of exercise. Even walking the dog helps, every little bit counts.

    I work at home too. I went from being a single construction worker with irregular eating habits to a well fed married dude who sit’s in front of the computer all day, and I’m starting to show it.

    I’ve been working from home for over 14 years and I force myself to get up and workout before I spend the day in front of a computer. Once you get into a regular routine you don’t feel right unless you get that workout in.

    A good motivator is to get an australian shepard. They’ll drive you crazy if you do not exercise them regularly.
