Pay Me to Lose Weight? No! Of course not. I just watched the ITV This Morning coverage of Christina who has expressed views on losing weight and how a government incentive would definitely help motivate her. I agree. I don’t however agree or believe that its solely the governments responsibility to pay us to lose the weight we have put on throughout the years.
Many overweight people in this country get called lazy amongst other things because of their large appearance. I’m overweight and I work nearly 12hours a day, 6 days a week, so call me every name under the sun, but don’t you dare call me lazy. My work to social life balance isn’t very balanced at all, and my eating habits are better than they used to be but could be better. I have struggled with depression for the last six years and recently have had trouble with anxiety, losing confidence and lacking self belief. A lot of this has stemmed from my weight issues. I would love to work out, and would love to go to the gym, go swimming or going for a long walk in the park. I’m always held back though because of the fear and anxiety of people watching and staring and having the paranoia of trying to guess what people are thinking. Its not an excuse, its not finding a way out, its the truth and many overweight people have to deal with this on a daily basis. The people commenting and name calling Christina for saying what she said in the news article are the same people who stop people like myself and her from wanting to leave the house to try and fix ourselves. There have been a number of occasions where I have been ready to leave the house to attack the pavements for a walk and have purposely waited until dark to go out, or I haven’t bothered at all. It doesn’t and most definitely shouldn’t have to be like that!
Some of the ideas I have which I think the government should support are having health clubs and gyms reduce costs for dangerously overweight people or having swimming clubs and sports halls have hours in the week for larger people to do aqua aerobics or just learn to swim or do sports like badminton without the fear of being judged. Also, have the NHS to tackle mental health more. I have never been treated for my issues, and the few times I went to the doctors in regards to my illness, I was given a CD with whale music and wasn’t contacted since. More needs to be done to get to the real issues as to why people are over weight and why people are afraid to do something about it. We are NOT lazy. We are NOT wanting hand outs. We just want YOU to stop being mean. The government are giving handouts to alcoholics and smokers - why not offer a portion of that money to people who need help with an actual illness?
Just my thoughts. Good luck to anyone who is willing and trying to live a healthier life. Patience and preservation is key!
