Ok so I usually hate threads of such serious nature but I'm spent on ideas here and wanted to know if anyone else had any similar experiences.
Here's the thing: my brother is way too fat and he gets really depressed over it. He feels bad/insecure, eats a ton of chocolate, feels guilty about being greedy and goes back to feeling bad/insecure, it's the classic vicious cycle.
What worries me is that I suspect his weight matches his age (18 st.) and will continue to do so as he just eats mass amounts of junk food at a phenomenal rate. It's worrying for the rest of the family but he just won't listen, I've tried all sorts of ways of trying to get the message through to him and tonight I finally told him I'm fucking sick of him running away from this very evident problem.
He doesn't want to hear that he's fat, won't get a girlfriend, will have health problems but he just shrugs it off and plucks whatever bullshit excuse out of his pocket he feels like at any given time. Today it was "it's my ankles fault, it's not my fault I'm fat"
The truth is I don't give a fuck if he hates me for shouting at him for it, he needs to do something about it.
I just don't know what it's going to take...
Don't comment if you're just going to say "just leave him to it" because I will just get pissed off with you and this thread will turn into something counterproductive.
Anyone else have a friend or brother who's the same?
You can't force him to do anything, and trying to won't be productive. I guess you could try involving him in whatever you do for exercise.
