there are people who have thyroide disease and tend to get very fat if they don't burn the fat fast. My neighbor (female) has it and is slim (and hot) as hot because of the same, there are excuses.

The reason its hard is because you're burning energy...you know, exercising!

exercise is hard when you are fat. when you are in shape is not that bad its actually fun. i mean jogging 4 miles as a warm up during football then weight lifting later and you pass out on the bed wake up like you sleep on god bed and you never felt you sleep better than that moment in your life.

I've been reading sources that tell me that it is absolutely true that genetics can be attributed to weight; however the same sources tell me that the roles shouldn't play such a big role to make you morbidly obese.

I'm pretty sure that losing weight may be slighltly more difficult, but not to the point that somebody needs to let themselves go so far that they need to be on a moving cart.

Can somebody who's an expert in genetics clarify this?

www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=20791&sc=801

Also, I've read EXTERMELY rare cases when genetics do impact somebody's weight.

I think the genetics-weight issue exists, but should not be used by lazy cows such as these to rationalize why they should stuff themselves with donuts and blame it on something else.

from my experience i lacked motivation to lose weight. and the thing that motivated me was this annoying fat guy i know. the ****** lost around 40 pounds in like a month and it really pissed me off that he can lose weight and i can't. so i've been dieting for 2 weeks now and lost around 15 pounds. i need to lose like 100 more

I have to step in here, the question was"can some people not lose weight"the answer is no, period. genetic fatties CAN lose weight, its irrelevant whether they are thin or not.

ok I've only just started watching the whole video, but I have a question. The one fitness trainer asked if two of the larger women were healthy as in they got cleared by a doctor and stuff like that. Then some other larger women chimed in and said well just because you're fat doesnt mean your unhealthy... doesnt it though? I've only ever been told the basic increased risks that come with being overweight as well as limb damage and muscle wear etc... so how is it possible to be healthy but have all of those issues? I'm really not asking this in a bitchy way I'm seriously wondering if what I've been told is wrong or whatever

The thing is that a lot of people confuse fat and heavy. I'm 280 pounds, I weighed 280 pounds last year. When I went to my doctor for my physical last year she was worried and wanted my cholesterol checked, wanted me tested to see if I was pre-diabetic. These are serious issues for a 21 year old to be dealing with. When I went in this year the first thing she commented on was that I look a lot better than I did last year. I'm still rather fat, and have a long way to go but those concerns she had are gone. My blood pressure isn't abnormal, my cholesterol is fine and there's no concern for me becoming diabetic.

That was a long example to show that you can be heavy and be healthy, but being pure fat and being healthy is a whole different story. I'm big but work on my joints so that they can move my weight without taking damage, a year ago that was not the case and running would literally hurt my knees. Floors still creak when I walk by, but my body doesn't. Now to the point: I think this is what women like in the vid are thinking. Because someone can be large and healthy that means that they can too, they don't realize the difference in body fat percentage and training to make it so our bodies don't go through Hell when we do physical activity.

Long story short: no, you really can't be "healthy" when you're obese. It just will not happen. You can be large (6'2" and 280 as I said before) and be okay, but it takes training and most of that weight needs to be muscle.

"Exercise is hard"

Nothing worth doing is easy. Yes it's hard, but you know what? I've lost 10 pounds because the people around me are being supportive. Hell, I've been running everyday for several months and just now am I beginning to lose weight. Complete strangers have come up to me and told me they've seen me out there running everyday and that it inspired them to do the same. I've seen some people you would call Land Whales out there walking everyday as well. They're seemingly making an effort to TRY.


Humans are naturally competitive. One of the many reason I support the Free Market system. But something similar can be used here. Get a friend to workout with you. You'll want to compete to beat them and they'll do the same. Almost everyone I know weighs less than 200 pounds and is in quite decent shape whereas I'm now at 210 and dropping. If you don't have friends. An MP3 player will also suffice.

On Another note does a fat person have to buy 2 grave slots? You could be costing your family even more in the near future....

The host is right, obviously genetics plays a part in how much fat a certain person needs to be healthy, and how easy it is for them to get rid of/put on fat down to their metabolism, but unless there's a very complex health condition they would never actually be genetically obese. I did hear about a woman who physically couldn't stop putting on weight after she either had a stroke or was in a car crash, (can't remember which) but that would be extremely rare. These women aren't even listening to what's being said..

I love how the general excuse to the question "why did your diet fail?" was "After the diet I bounced back to my old habits, diets don't work"...
All that spells out to me is "I lacked the motivation to continue with the diet".

Do these people believe what they're saying? Or are they just trying to give that impression so people won't correct them.
