Altogether, it's a poisonous stew, that's for sure. Any combination of those things, really.


edit: And then there's blind habit, past a point. This can work for good or evil, or anything else for that matter: sloth, fitness, being helpful, being selfish, and so on.

Medications, Beta blockers, steroids etc...there's probably a whole list and although as with the thyroid issue and other such issues, it may affect a smaller group of people and not be considered as a "factor that contributes to obesity", it should be made apparent that it can and does indeed do so, at least as a footnote.

I was just reading about the impact of certain medications. Timely response.

Steve I just attached a term report I wrote about two years ago that I think may be relevant to your needs.

EDIT: I had to email it as the attachment keeps giving me an error

Job stress as well as financial I think they help with becoming obese.

Laziness.

Processed foods, soda tv, sofa's etc, etc.... Are all inanimate objects. They can only indirectly contribute to the problem. If you, the consumer do not use them, the contribute nothing. Laziness is a direct contributor. I eat fast food because I am too lazy to fix myself something decent. Today's comfort foods provide comfort by being easy to find and eat, I am too lazy to fix the meal. I don't exercise, because I am lazy, it is easier to lay on the sofa and play xbox. Worse decision I made was buying a console for my boys, best decision was limiting their time on it and making them get outside.

Sorry, off soap box.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
