I wish it was that easy.
Exercising is quite taxing on me body besides, I hate don't want to be muscled.
Being a skinny twink is all I have been doing for all me life : D
Well, an occasional morning jog can't hurt that much, especially if you pace yourself? We all have our own speed of life I guess.

Rheumatism is a bitch to live with but I'm doing alright, I guess the occasional walks keep me relatively healthy haha.

When i see a person who is very overweight who is young too, first that comes to mind is what happened or didn't happen that person that made them become so overweight?

This thread is more to get an understanding why someone might gain so much weight its not a bashing or weight shaming.

One thing i hear is genetics, which i believe and most science research confirm unless its a very rare disease. most people should be able to lose weight with good diet and exercise.

Sugar is the number one enemy of the human race imo. not a country which your government leaders said or what was written in a book how many years ago.


your thoughts?
parents having really little regard for their children's well being and letting them eat however they want/over feeding them.

I don't exactly blame you, but I know we just don't think about our future and don't move enough now to feel more comfortable in older age. Don't blame rheumatism instead of your laziness. Watch your diet, take some RA meds, take your ass off a sofa and go for a walk. Walking, on the opposite, helps with RA. It helps to prevent a loss of bone density.

You're not my physician so please don't tell me to take medication which you probably don't know anything about.

If I'm on MTX then not really, nauseous and tired throughout the day, no motivation do anything at all...
I haven't taken them for a couple of years and I'm a hell of a lot better off without them, I'd welcome the occasional pain rather then be miserable and doped up on chemicals haha.
Hell, I've managed to do more on bud then on pills but that's another discussion on its own.

I appreciate your concern but pharmaceuticals aren't the answer haha.
What I truly need is to get the fuck out of this shitty climate and migrate closer towards the equator.
I've been to the Canary islands a year ago and I've never managed to walk and do so much.
Admittedly, I had some sore knee joints after the 12km beachwalk me and the boyfriend did at night but it was well WELL worth the pain hahaha.

I'm not fat, I used to be 10 KG heavier but managed to lose some weight through going walking during lunches instead of eating a "nice" lunch. Still, I have to watch my eating habits to remain at my current weight (1,76M @77 KG). If you are really overweight the changes you'll have to make must be huge, I don't think I can comprehend the implications in daily live.
Still in my society it's "normal" to assume that being fat is a choice: just eat less and exercise. It's easy to judge people but you can't judge anyone without knowing the whole story of this person.
I do think being very overweight is not normal nor should it be be glorified: it is bad for your health and body. And if you can you should do your best fighting it! If you can't for reasons: try making the best of your situation, I will still like you if you are a nice person.

Being overweight is a problem for many people nowadays. You need to watch your diet and lifestyle first and foremost. It affects your weight a lot. Also, stress and nervousness have a bad effect on your weight. I noticed that when I began to worry less on various occasions, I lost a few pounds.

The only thing that brings you further is suffering. Everything else is an illusion.
If you have the feeling that you are suffering then you are on the right track, I don't mean fast food

I guess it is a very complicated topic. I would start with the educating the children and telling them more about healthy habits and influence of sugar.
The only thing that helps here is narrowing down products that are harmful. But nobody dares to attack corporations to force them to produce healthy products.
We are victims of the corporations and dependent.
We cannot survive without these corporations. unless we have our own garden and can feed ourselves naturally.
The young generation will know nothing EXCEPT fast food and sugar, and they don't really have the opportunity to switch. Here we are just victims of greed for more money.

Now how can we face this problem? It only works if you can feed yourself without spending money, everything else is a risk. Every shitty shop sells more sugar than vitamins, the sugar is often hidden in packaging with weird E-numbers, which not everyone knows. if someone reads this, then they know that it is not necessarily their own fault, but you are just a very good (suger)customer..

You must first know your enemy before you can defeat him..

Sugar alone is definitely not your enemy.

Pick up your ass and find the real problem or stay on the couch forever.

I know I'm very rough, but tenderness doesn't help in the long run.

Well, I haven't read through all 11 pages to see what everyone has said but I can chime in.

I was always a small kid, I was 100 lbs in high school 5'4-5'5 ( finally made it to 5'7') and started to lift and add some weight/muscle pretty quick. Dad has good genetics for it. Got to a good point, and then I got overweight and obese. I stopped working out, I drank alcohol daily and ate whatever I wanted and eventually became an alcoholic. I went from 160 a lean 130-140 to eventually around 220 lbs and spent years that way and eventually got tired of being tired and lost the weight then some and got back on track with bodybuilding.

Its hard beside being alcoholic I'm also a binge eater, low calorie dense foods are the way to go!

Finally can comment a bit on this personally. I have been overweight since shortly after high school. Worked at an ice cream shop for my first job, and learned a LOT of bad eating habits as a result. At my upper limit, I reached 275lbs at 6'3". Because of my build, I didn't look huge. Last year was the final straw for me. Almost 30, no partner, fat, crappy car, I finally had enough. Had to make major changes in my life, and one of those was for weight. Sat down with my doctor and a dietician, who helped me work out a gameplan. Initially we started with just diet and exercise. After a couple of months, I was down a total of five pounds. I kept a food and exercise journal, provided this to the ones helping, and found that I was doing what I needed to for the most part. Occasional slip-ups, but meals were always well-tracked, snacking was within reason, and I wasn't going absurd. I would almost always target a calorie limit of 1,500. Real cooking, balanced meals, the works. Exercising was never an issue, as I am usually relatively active.

Since the mental changes were done for the most part, we ended up trying something a bit different: medication. I didn't want to move towards medication for this, but my doctor wanted to at least try. I started using a medication called Wegovy, which is still relatively new. I was lucky enough to get into the program before the company discontinued the support systems (supply chain issues). This was the help I needed, big time. In less than 6 months, I have gotten down to 210lbs. It's like someone flipped a switch and said "OK, you are eating right, now let's drop some weight". As long as I don't plateau any harder than I currently am, I should be able to reach under 200 within the next month or so. From what I was told by my doctor, insulin resistance played a major role in my weight. Wegovy allowed me to process food properly, reduce intake further (while remaining safe), and really push me further than I ever could have by myself. It isn't magic, though. Side effects have been pretty moderate, with the majority of them being gastrointestinal. It is also an injection, which will sway a lot of people away from it. It isn't unmanageable for me, but I definitely see it being impossible to handle depending on the person. Norvo, the company behind it, states this should be a constant medication for management, but my doctor and I are hoping to avoid this. My doctor seems to believe we can pivot to a different, less obtrusive medication for my insulin resistance, and hopefully allow me to maintain a healthy weight.

I still hate that I needed medication to get where I am now, but I also know that, at least for me, I needed help. All in all, I am in a better place than I was before starting everything, and as long as I am not an idiot going further, it should be in the past. Fingers crossed.

Well, maybe try exercising more to build muscle I guess. I've been using a trampoline and that seems to have made me a bit taller by like 2-3 inches give or take, so maybe you could gain weight by exercising?
if trampolining makes you taller then why the fuck has my professional trampolining career from age 6-18 left me at 5'3.

i think it's favouritism.

Personally the best way to lose weight is having a job that does lots of moving around and physical activity. I think motivation is also a key role. You have to be dedicated to do these things on a base motive, but if its your job your not going to second think on it, you just have to do it to get paid lol. Im a truck unloader so its a workout for me every day. I noticed I lost weight b/c my pants would still slide off me even with a belt on.
