60 Reasons You’re Chronically Overweight Or Obese

Last Updated on

Success or failure in any endeavor begins and ends with our mental relationship to the undertaking. Physical achievements are no different. Once we create a mental framework that supports a condition, the condition naturally comes into existence. Our historic mental framework has gotten us where we are today. We will have to create a new mental structure to create a different result in the future. As someone who’s been there myself, and with respect, I offer you 60 reasons you’re chronically overweight or obese.

You Believe You’re Different From Other Humans. The Same Rules Don’t Apply.

Examples:

  1. “I have a big appetite.”
  2. “I’m just big-boned.”
  3. “I’ve always been a big guy/girl.”
  4. “BMI is a flawed measure — my superior muscle mass means it doesn’t apply to me.”
  5. “I don’t have to follow the rules that apply to others.”
  6. “I can get away with doing it differently.”

 

You’re Uncoachable. You Can’t or Won’t Listen, Learn, Or Follow Simple Directions.

Examples:

  1. “I’ll do that, but not this.”
  2. “I can’t do all of it, so I’ll do some of it.”
  3. “If I did that, I don’t know what would happen.”
  4. “I’m not doing that.”
  5. Don’t put in the time.
  6. Don’t do the work.
  7. Easily offended.
  8. Unwilling to take action despite fear.

It’s All About You.

Until you have a goal, a purpose, and a plan bigger than you, you are doomed to isolation, loneliness, obscurity, and the trappings of those conditions, however they occur for you.

You’re Ashamed Or Afraid.

Examples:

  1. Avoid.
  2. Deny.
  3. Resist.
  4. Ignore.
  5. Pretend you don’t understand.
  6. Outwardly agree when you really don’t.

 

You’ve Given Up and Given in to Being Overweight.

Examples of things you might say or think:

  1. “It doesn’t matter.”
  2. “Nothing else has worked. Why should this?”
  3. “It’s useless.”
  4. “Forget it.”
  5. “It’s just wrong.”
  6. “It’s stupid.”
  7. “I’m not ready.”
  8. “It’s not my time.”
  9. “I can’t fix it.”
  10. “I won’t.”
  11. “There’s nothing I can do about it.”
  12. “Why bother?”
  13. “There’s nothing we can do about it.”
  14. “There’s nothing I can do about it.”
  15. “It’s too hard.”
  16. “I can’t.”
  17. “It’s a waste of time.”
  18. “What’s the point?”
  19. “It’s not worth it.”
  20. “It doesn’t really matter.”
  21. “It doesn’t really matter anyway.”
  22. “Forget about it.”
  23. “I didn’t want that anyway.”
  24. “That’s not really what I wanted.”
  25. “I can’t help it.”
  26. “It can’t be helped.”
  27. “It doesn’t make a difference.”
  28. “Who cares?”
  29. “It won’t make a difference.”
  30. “I can’t make a difference.”
  31. “I just want it to be over.”
  32. There are others, some not G-rated, that I haven’t listed here.
