"humongously fat and can barely walk without waddling."
Ah, the 'morbidly obese'
But for the middling sort comes down to some sort of disjunct between ideal and practice - person sees fit individual on telly, and thinks "I'd like to look like that" but has - for a hundred and one valid reasons - difficulty in turning it from "I don't want to look like this" into motivation to change.
I know that I am a case in point. I know I'm getting bigger round the waist. But I like meaty (fatty) savoury stuff. So far my motivation is a vow not to buy a pair of trousers with a bigger waist and so accommodate any further increase. On the other hand it's not yet 10 o'clock and I topped up my breakfast with an M&S mini sausage roll.
