Hello, my name is Carla and I suffer from "Fatitude". Step 1, admitting I have a problem. Step 2, finding a cure. 1. No problem, 2., I'm not so sure about. I am my own worst enemy. Bad thoughts, negative comments, feeling of failure, punishments; all brought on myself by myself. Yes I am definately my own worst enemy and I don't know how to stop.
How embarrassing! I thought I was fairly good at maintaining a positive attitude, however having read this article I am 100% guilty of all these 'fatitude' problems! I also think I may need to start reading this everyday to get my act into gear!
Although I'm not a fan of the consistent use of the term 'fatitude', as I find it kind of demeaning, the article was definitely good and spot on! I found that I have a lot of the 'symptoms' here and now have also been alerted to some of the helpful 'fixes' to those so-called symptoms. I'm really enjoying this site and the articles so far!
I think this was a positive article full of helpful advice. I felt the use of the term "fatitude" was a clever way to describe a mental state many of us feel, and every bit of advice was great for trying to move past that defeating mind set!
This article was perfect timing for me. I was going to search on how to "get my head into this" and this was first article that came up when I logged on. Fatatuttude decribes me and personaly I didn't feel bullied - enlightened is more like it. Thank you.
i finished reading this article only for the points. Your use of the word "fatitude" was annoying, aggressive, and downright degrading. Like someone who is already struggling with the psychological aspects of losing weight need yet another label put on them. I didnt find this motivating at all. You sounded like a bully.
