Today I heard of a huge man, like myself talking about bad digestion, genetics and blah..blah...
The truth is that it's always a lie and inability to admit that you eat huge amount of food just indicates that you are not ready for a lifelong change.
I've admitted it many months ago.
Also many ask how did you get that big and public media driven people to think of this as some illness, again: metabolism, genetics or some weird condition. Basically being fat is something that just happens with people.
It all comes down to food, and here's my eating regiment...before.
I've eaten once a day and here's what I had delivered to me:
2 Greek Salads: 250 g each

2 Fries: 150 g each with sause 100 g
1 Chicken nuggets: - 400 g with sause 100 g

2 Pepsi Light: 2 liters each
1 15 inches pizza: 1100-1300 g

Sometimes I got one more pizza instead of fries and nuggets.
So yeah...genetics is the reason...right!

    I remember when I would go to the gas station and get 2 breakfast sandwiches and 2 A&E Chocolate milk bottles! OOFTA! Looking back on that!

    Plus, I have hypothyroidism. Sometimes I wonder how much weight I gained from giving up vs hypothyroidism. I made myself believe I gained 100+ from my thyroid being off track...I honestly think I was the one completely off track!

    Thank you for your blogs! They are so honest and great!

    Thanks for being honest, eating once a day never is a good idea. But you know that now. I can't say I ever could eat that much at one sitting but one whole pizza, yeah did that. For a girl that is big time over eating. All in the past!

    It's true and I find that sometimes it is not the quantity that I'm eating but the actual choices I'm making are not healthy ones. So I have to evaluate what my choices are and then make the decision to eat healthy. There are good choices to make that taste good as well as being healthy. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I have cut out emoticon emoticon and it has made a huge difference in my appetite as well. . I find myself eating more healthy food than craving the junk I used to eat.

    It is quite funny how we sometimes tend to think that we really didn't eat that much in a day, but we never think of the amount of calories. Good luck to you and all of us. emoticon

    There are a certain measure of genetics, some folks (like my hubby) can REALLY put it away and has no weight issue, in fact he tends to skinniness...BUT lets face it....that is not so for most of us. For most of us obese is what we eat...the more honest we are with ourselves, the better our chance of combating our weight issue. I'm with you on EAT PROPERLY, its not my genetics. My genetics are large boned people, rounded bodies..but not 30kgs overweight....that's not my genetic, thats incorrect/indulgent/emotional eating.
    Well done on your weight loss journey.

    Well in a sense, some people are more genetically inclined to eat foods that are heavier on carbs/oils, plus some people are just naturally slim, like pencil slim.

    I know no matter how much I may try to lose weight, I possibly might not be able to be pencil slim since the women in my mom's side of the family are quite wide and short.

    However, I agree with what you said that admitting we have a problem is the first step to the solution. Thanks for posting pictures and for being honest about your former diet.

    I need to be more aware of what I eat on a day to day basis. Sometimes, I'm quite an emotional eater and I turn to the foods that you've posted on this blog: fries, pizza, pepsi.

    I can relate!

    I agree. You have to be honest with yourself if you are going to change.

    Nicely done! My hubby is finally starting to admit that it is his habits causing his weight problem and health problems, not genetics, The fact that the entire family has the same problems is a result of poor familial eating habits, not genetics.

    while it is true genetics do play a key we have choice on our lifestyle.

    While genetics certainly play a role in our weight (you know any folks that can eat anything and stay slim? lucky genetic lottery winners!) 80% is our habits. I am glad that you are realizing your habits were bad for you. Best of luck for establishing, new healthy habits that will help you be healthy and attain your goals.

  • TERRY0217's always something else...NOT what we put into our mouths and our inactivity...It's a major step when we identify the problem is US...and...our bad habits.

    I've tried pizza after I changed to healthy eating, and I don't like the taste, it's too oily and salty and overall bad.

    Stephanie, nope...there are no other possibilities
    Possibilities come to play when your weight is normal, but you have less muscle or fat distribution you don't like and all that happens with 5 kg mange maximum.

    Sure, there's conditions like 30-40 pound tumors or twin growing inside you or things like that...hypoproteinemia for example, for someone who think that that must be the case for them I suggest going to a doctor, psychiatrist most likely.

    Have you noticed, now that you've cut back, that one bite is as delicious as the WHOLE THING was before? emoticon emoticon

    You're right. People tend to blame genetics and such instead of the fact that they've simply over eaten day after day. People tend to have a hard time accepting responsibility for the fact that they've done this to themselves.

    The salad looks good :)

    What's true for you is not necessarily the case for everyone though. I do think that food and lifestyle are the issues for the vast majority of people, but there are other possibilities.

    Keep making good choices.
