I know someone who says she doesn't go to the gym because she doesn't have a workout partner and gets bored when she's alone.

I'm too tired.

I wasn't meant to be skinny

It's sad that everyone's own worse enemy is themselves, and by overcoming these mental blocks there's no telling what they could achieve.

my mom stopped weight watchers because my dad foolishly responded to her question with this.... Mom: "ive lost 25lbs in 3 months, can you notice anything different?" Dad: "not really"

she has sat in front of the tv with fritos after work ever since... and that was 2 months ago... she was doing great, she just dosnt care is the sad part....

It should be

I am just plain lazy.

or

I don't want to.

On average including travel to and from work + actual work 50+ to 60 hours a week. I still find an hour a day 4-5 days a week to get results.

There are plenty of great workout programs that take 30 mins a day. The sad truth is that the only person they are hurting is themselves and possibly their families. Then they wonder why they have health problems when they get older and can not do anything. Unless a person is working 16 hours a day 7 days a week they can find sometime.

Oh and Gods Gladiator: Your dad is lucky to not be sleeping on the couch after saying no. That was so the wrong answer.

Amen brother...I once heard you only need "air and opportunity" to get a workout in!

Awh, this is too sad. You should tell your mom that she is looking more beautiful than ever, and encourage her to join up again. I would have been so mad at my husband! oh my.
