Do you think a person can put on a lot of weight without really being aware of how fat they are?


I regularly read about men and women who say they put on weight over a period of time and when the finally got weighed (be it a slimming club or the doctors, whatever) or seen a holiday pic they were shocked at how much they weighed or how fat they looked. I'm not being mean, I just find it hard to understand how you can put on so much weight and not feel clothes getting tight or even notcie yourself in the mirror. If you're wearing a size 16+ surely if you used to be a size 10, you must notice yourself changing, not to mention the change in your fitness.

    Hi, Tanx for your answer. Denial for some I suppose could be one of the answers. It just seems there are so many excuses these days. Very little staying power any more.

    Hi mikejhca. That's very interesting what you said: It was like the before and after were different people. I wonder if you might have something there! Tanx for your comment.

    I agree with you, and I think denial for many is just another excuse.
