Obesity is a neurotic condition, an emotional sickness.
Obesity requires controlling for a lifetime.
We know that the obese individual has at one or another times in his life been ten or more pounds overweight for at least ten years.
It is disastrous to labor under the delusion that you are not obese when in fact you are.
Obese people make the statement, "I've been thin," over and over again because they invariably have a history of having been thin at one time in their life...a short
period of thinness, and then a regaining of [the weight].
