    Finally an article that doesn't pander and baby people. This is a great motivational article and pointed out to me exactly why I've failed in the past and why I will continue to succeed now. Thank you! - 10/16/2012 11:19:06 AM
  • I used to have that all or nothing fattitude! I was ALWAYS starting on if i messed up Monday...I ate bad until the next Monday. I am grateful that I no longer can be described has having a fattitude. The scale isn't doing much but I've been on this journey for 2 months consistantly and I'm not turning back. In fact, I see more of who I am in the Winning Attitudes :-) and I'm very thankful for Sparkpeople and the countless supporters I have!! - 10/16/2012 10:37:34 AM
  • 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. - 10/16/2012 9:21:33 AM

  • Nice article! I finally have come to acknowledge that I am a Drama Queen and an all-or-nothing. It is still hard to keep going, though, but I sure plan to keep fighting my demons. - 10/16/2012 8:14:54 AM

  • 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! - 10/16/2012 7:23:27 AM

  • 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! - 7/22/2012 3:39:09 PM
  • 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! - 5/31/2012 1:25:41 AM
  • 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. - 5/24/2012 4:32:14 PM
  • 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. - 5/24/2012 4:21:17 AM
    Great article it does motivate you ...
