20 Excuses For Overweight

Some people hardly accept that they are overweight.

  • No time to exercise.
  • No time to cook healthy diets.
  • I am too old now. Don’t need to maintain myself any more.
  • Exercises are not much effective for me.
  • Sitting whole day in air conditioned rooms are not burning my extra fats.
  • Weight gain is due to the effect of medicines.
  • I am starting my dieting plans from tomorrow.
  • Gaining weight is in heredity. Everyone is fat in my family.
  • I am a foodie. I love to eat.
  • Not feeling well.
  • I have thyroid problem.
  • Diets are not effective for me.
