'I am overweight and nobody loves me'

Published: 08 November, 2013 01:11 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I have been obese since childhood. All my pals now have girlfriends or are married except for me.

The issue is my weight. Even a girl who is equally obese refused me. I have a great job, own a home and a car. Does nobody love a fat guy? Girls tell me they find me cute but I am not boyfriend material. I feel so dejected.

Dear Norbit,
Does obesity run in your family? If so, you need medical attention. Nowadays there are numerous ways to lose weight including going under the knife. If your weight is proving to be a hurdle in your love life, one option is to lose it. You will need to consult a dietician to chart out a proper meal plan for you. At the same time, you will have to draw up a work-out regime with a physical trainer. You cannot lose weight overnight, so be patient. Excess weight can lead to several health issues as well. Right now, you have low self-esteem, be happy with how you are. Think positive and I am sure there is someone out there who will love you for what you are.

Diana will solve it!
