There are only 4 reasons for being overweight; eating too much, exercising too little, medical conditions, psychological conditions (which affect previous 3).
Can anyone give their reason for being overweight and give advice on how they overcame it?

As a diabetic who's trying to stay off of medication I don't drink fruit juice. A doctor I used to see (she no longer accepts my insurance) told me to stay away from ALL fruit juice, I thought she was crazy. Now I no longer drink any kind of fruit juice, but I eat plenty of fruit. I try not to eat bread or bread type products more than three times a week. Sometimes I go all week without eating bread. The same ggoes for rice, potatoes, oatmeal and all other cereal. I haven't had corn in almost a year. My present doctor couldn't understand why my blood sugars were almost normal and I had stopped taking the meds. He BLAMED my normal blood sugars on weight loss, because he said if I was eating fruit five times a day my sugar should still be high. He also recommends that I eat some bread. I no longer recommend other diabetics to him. BALANCED NATURE Naturally Curing Diabetes, Anxiety and Living Longer

Shaun, bravo to you for acknowledging that weight depends on more than simply calories and exercise. I posted my "story" on the loose skin thread. It's long....way too long really. Once I get mad and get writing....I have a hard time stopping. LOL

But my story is there. My reason is medical and I'm dealing with it by having Gastric bypass. I haven't had it yet so I don't know the outcome. But after surgery my efforts at counting calories will actually work. With the help of high doses of narcotic pain medication I can move a little bit. Hopefully, I can bite the bullet and increase my strength more over time. As I lose weight....activity should be easier to a point. I'll never walk for miles or run anywhere but I might be able to walk the block to the mail box if I really work at it. ;)

Yes and I have recently learned and understood, it is more than the reasons you stated. I am working on starting a specialized group who's interested in focusing on weightloss methods and eliminating high blood pressure and diabetic related health concerns. I would love to connect with you. I hope I am allowed to leave my contact information. PLEASE ANYONE READING THIS MESSAGE, DO NOT SPAM ME with advertisements or business opportunities. Thanks for your understanding.

Hi Shaun, I just typed my comments to you in a -Mid-Lengthy- reply...THEN I clicked the wrong button by error on my keyboard and the message was totally eliminated. If time permits, please contact me to discuss the weight loss group that I am structuring with an emphasis on folks with diabetes and or high blood pressure. I also mentioned in my erroneously deleted post for NO ONE to spam me with advertisements and or business opportunities. Thanks.

In January my doctor told me I had "metabolic syndrome" and I said "HUh?" and he said I was just a couple of tweaks away from diabetes.....that was my WAKE UP call!! I have found the Dr. Oz Real Age website to be a tremendous tool, I've followed the advice and worked hard, bought the pedometer, ditched the HFCS and the C&H bag, bought a bread machine, and OMG I've lost two and a half inches off my waist! Now I can't get enough of the vegetarian and vegan cookbooks at the library (when I find one I don't want to return, then I buy a copy on Amazon!) I've discovered delighful, healthy things like agave nectar, whole wheat berries, brown rice IS tastier than white, and the fun challenge of finding a new veggie to try every week. Last week, for the first time, I learned to make Pizza from the ground up....whole wheat dough from my bread machine, fresh fresh fresh tomatoes reduced to pizza sauce, MMMMMMMM and of course, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER EAT FAST FOOD, greasy food prepared by teenagers WILL EVENTUALLY KILL YOU.
