But seriously, you have to be sick of looking at yourself in the mirror before you can change, that's the bottom line.
And beyond this - the average life expectency 50 years ago was about 65 - now its closer to 89 - but we are fatter. This is a fact.

....Don't worry - You can certainly lose the weight by next summer. Once I got my "stuff" under control and started living again, I was losing weight so fast my budget couldn't keep up! (by that I mean, every time I bought pants that did not fall off - they starting falling off within a month)

Unless you like the look of overweight you have no right to moan just knuckle down and put the effort in.
I'm about 5.11 and i weigh 174 pounds. or about 79 Kg for my fellow Brits.
I wont even blame fast food places or large amounts of food serving fully for weight gain in people. If you eat alot work out alot.
I know many people wont like what i've said but deep down everyone agrees... BTW i dont dislike "fat" people but i think they are lazy and have no selfpride.
