Its not always that simple as a matter of having or not having discipline. Sometimes there are complicated mental and emotional issues as well. Sometimes there are physical causes, such as an abnormal thyroid.

I’ve had a weight problem since childhood. Although I’ve lost weight, it’s still a lifelong struggle. I’m not looking for sympathy — it is what it is. But I wish people who have never had this problem would refrain from giving unsolicited advice and making pat judgments.

Amen.. As someone who does not have a thyroid anymore, I know weight can be a struggle. It has little to do with discipline, and possible weight gain is one of the less important issues when it comes to abnormal thyroids..
