  • this article is scary. It described me perfectly. I have a MAJOR fatitude problem. At least now I know it and I can work on changing it.

  • I know you meant well by writing this article, but I felt after a while that when you said "Fatitude!", you were bullying. It got to be too much. I think you overused the repetition, and it became very aggravating. Also, the woman screaming at her scale didn't even go with the article at all. I know you used to be overweight, but that still doesn't give you carte blanche to go and bully others who are overweight. Be kind! - 1/9/2012 12:08:33 AM

    well I've finally realized why ive been 100+ lbs overweight for over 10 years: I have fatitude!!!! and a seriously bad case of it at that. it's like the author has been following me around to get examples for this article!! from making excuses expecting perfection and (the biggie) wanting instant gratification, it's all describing me to a T. thanks so much Dean and SparkPeople! - 10/18/2011 11:22:27 AM

    Great article and really gets to the heart of my own eating issues! I have finally realized that it is my behavior that is affecting my health. I know what to do, now I am working on reprogramming my brain to follow the healthy lifestyle I want. - 8/26/2011 7:30:08 AM
  • You really hit the nail on the head with this article. Loved it! One day at a time! - 7/28/2011 11:03:33 PM
    This article was just what I needed! It helped me get motivated and find my "positive talking voice" I had trouble reaching. Hooray, I am off to my next adventure on the journey. - 4/25/2011 6:39:32 PM
  • I really found this articul motivating! Most of the fatitudes are ones that I either have or have had at some point. Thanks! - 1/24/2011 1:20:03 AM
  • A friend at school told me the other day that I need to stop being down on myself and pick one thing to work on at a time: great Spark advice from a non-Sparker. I 'allow' myself to eat what I want, not exercise, then stress over my poor choices and lack of accomplishment. I have put this article in my Favorites and will revisit it often, watching my Fattitude change along with the rest of me! - 12/10/2010 7:40:43 AM
