Do you feel guilty being FAT?

I feel guilty being fat because my main problem in life revolves around me. I watch the news and so many awful things are going on to people all over the world and my main problem is wanting to fit in some hip huggers and look hot!! How shalllow is that. I wish I could gain control of myself and solve this relativly easy problem that I created from feeding my piehole. I just hope once I lose this weight I can actually be a contributing member of society, instead of a selfish self-absorbed little pig. (thank-you Alex B for the quote)

I think something that you may consider is that by eating more healthfully and getting in shape, in a way you are contributing to a better society. By eating less, less energy will be used to bring food to your table, thus decrease global warming. And by getting your health back, we'll have a healthier and more productive society.

YES, I feel guilty ALL THE TIME... but rarely because I'm fat. I feel like no matter what I look like, what I do, who I am.... it will NEVER be enough. I feel like every action is tainted with selfishness.... even volunteering and donating is some twisted endeavor to achieve a sense of superior self-satisfaction... my problems are too trivial to warrant my attention, my suffering too minor to warrant my depression, my dreams too petty to be called dreams.

So I guess what I'm saying is that fat has nothing to do with your perspective. Today, maybe your problem is the hip huggers. Maybe tomorrow its a co-worker who got promoted ahead of you at work. The next day its not having the latest iPhone/Pod/Whatever, maybe its an unexpected illness, maybe its a fight with your significant other. Whatever. There will still be a ocean of crap happening to people all over the world that'll make your problems seem shallower than a kiddie pool.

Sorry I have no good advise for you, I can only commiserate.

I feel guilty about having to spend money that could and proably should be better spent elsewhere on W/W to help helpless little me stop over eating.
I feel guilty about feeling guilty, too. So its an endless spiral, downwards.
And all because I labeled my emotion 'guilt'. Perhaps an emotion is just a label for a set of thoughts (which after all is what leads to an emotion anyway) and if we deliberately change the thoughts then the corresponding emotion would not be 'guilt'. I think it is a waste of emotional energy to percieve oneself wieghed down by guilt, when 'guilt' itself is just a result of certain thoughts, and those thoughts can be changed and certainly have no substance in and of themselves. Rambling a bit here, sorry :)

Hey don´t be so hard on yourself .
Saying that, my thoughts are ( and I´m thinking about me here too) is that if you start being "a contributing member " of society/ your life or family then the weight will start to go along with it.

Wow, maybe I should start feeling guilty. To be honest I don't feel guilty for much of anything. I work hard, play hard, etc. Maybe I'm just selfish but I see the world as you have to take care of yourself and enjoy life, or its just no worth living. That being said I do volunteer for a local dog rescue group, but I don't think that is saving the world.

You need to come to peace with yourself that you can't change the world and that taking care of yourself and the ones around you should be enough.
