According to the Center for Disease Control, more than one third of the US population is currently obese, putting them at risk for diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising moderately over long periods can be very challenging. — Melanie Greenberg Ph.D.
Overweight people are prone to difficult life changes that make them feel depressed. Not only because they somehow think they are not capable of doing what others usually do, but also because they bind themselves to the idea that they don’t have the right to do it. They believe that their weight problem is the primary reason why they should stop aiming for a better life. They struggle and feel sorry for themselves because they assume that everything is going to be so hard.
