There may have been a moment in one’s history that may have triggered the start of the weight gain and this moment may have been left unchecked resulting in weight increases that may have been ongoing for years. Dealing with that moment, accepting it for what it is, and resolving not to let it affect you for the worse ever, does strengthen one’s will.
