    Lack of motivation, poor discipline, lack of proper diet and exercise knowledge, low self-esteem, the list goes on.

    Foods that are bad for you, taste way too good to give up.

    Bad habits are way too much fun to quit.

    A bad day of fishing is better than a good day in the gym

    Being too lazy to get off the bar stool is just another way of saying,

    “Yes bartender I’ll have another.”

    Act Two

    Who needs muscle? I carry a .45

    Chips are not just for losers. They go with dip too.

    IS morning about working out or sleeping in? Some still choose to snooze

    Courses are not just for Golf anymore, there’s breakfast at Denny’s

    I always used to be slim, but since being prescribed antidepressants a few years ago, have piled on the pounds.  I eat only two small meals a day, I exercise for an hour a day, I don't snack or eat dessert.  The weight gain is due to the antidepessants.  I have had to reduce my food intake to one tiny meal a day, and over the past two months have managed to lose a stone, but I am starving myself.  It doesn't seem worth it.

      @Muldanianman, that's interesting because I've been interested in the long term effects of anti-depressants

    The #1 thing is the TV remote.  Lose it and the TV is dead.  Lose the TV and the couch potato will move.  Voila!  Mission accomplished!

    An unhealthy body.  I know that sounds counterintuitive but it's true.  I worked out several times a week and when I started gaining weight I increased my cardio and my aerobics to six days a week and tweaked my diet.  When I continued to gain I added a gym membership and strength training and cut down to a strict 1200 calorie a day diet.  I gained 50 pounds in six months.  At first they said it could be thyroids but that wasn't it.  Then they said adrenals were to blame but that wasn't it for me either.  After three years and another 17 pounds I found out that I have bilateral ovarian dermoids, a usually benign form of cervical cancer though not every doctor will say that.  Some only go so far as to say that they are a form of cyst that cannot go away on it's own and can mimic symptoms of thyroid disease, adrenal tumors, or pregnancy.  Additionally my cancer markers are elevated so there may be something else going on but I have to wait to see the oncologist for those answers.

    Typically I agree that laziness is a prime cause followed by a lack of motivation and/or determination but I have learned the hard way that sometimes your body simply rejects the idea of being healthy.

    No-one seems to have mentioned physical disabilities. I, for example, have a broken back. I  am like the bionic woman held together with metal pins.
    I lead a normal life except that I cannot run, nor perform any exercise that puts strain on my back.
    So, sit-ups, running, jogging, jumping are all out.
    No-one ever seems to think of the likes of me when it comes to physical exercise. I look normal, I walk normally. But I have limited movement so muscle building is pretty hard if not impossible.

      That is what I meant by an unhealthy body.  My husband has degenerative discs in his back that causes him daily pain.  My mother has bursitis in her hips that causes her pain and she cannot exercise either.  All physical disabilities that fall under the category of an unhealthy body.

      I had this too and I know that your situations are probably current so its impossible to imagine, i am a tennis pro full time and now specialist in fitness nutrition. I will tell you that I was told after a car accident with my degenerative disk in my neck, couldnt move for months doesnt bother me at all only because i have dedicated every day of my life which i know is alot, but all days to making sure i am always aligned, have my shoulders back and build my core through ultra low weights and swimming. i have to tell you i feel 100%, my advice is NEVER give up now or later get up but dont Give Up!

    Half the battle is our mind set. If we think we can't do it we won't. I think the other half is lack of support. I just started jogging with my sister a week ago and it's helped me keep up my weightloss journey. It's always better to get healthy with someone else whose on the same journey you're on.

    Fast foods are more affordable then healthy food.  Dollar menus are tough to pass up if a person is light in the wallet.

      Your correct! And, thats such a simple answer too, that healthy fast food would fix a world of problems!!
