Why are you fat??

I see a lot of women defending being overweight by saying that its hereditary, or caused by a thyroid problem or diabetes. I'm curious now! What is your reason for being fat, overweight, or obese? What should your weight be and what do you actually weigh?

Feel free to go anonymously. I'm not here to bash. I'd genuinely like to know.

For the other side of it, I'm very thin because my whole family is overweight. I obsessively monitor my exercise and food intake because of that. It's also not a healthy POV to take about food.

I've always been fat.

I'm working on it.

Why do you really care how other people "justify" it?

Because I hate working out, never thought about what I ate. Wasn't concerned about it for appearance sakes.

I'm probably 100 pounds overweight, but working on it.

Because the justifications are sweeping generalizations and each person is unique. Its helpful to hear perspective.

Quoting Laura1427:

Was it something you think you learned in childhood or did your weight gain start as an adult? Knowing the appearance part of it never bothered you is interesting to me. I cannot relate to that statement so it's something new to think about.

I'm fat because I'm lazy and I have developed a lot of poor eating habits. I'm working on fixing that but it's not as easy as people think.
