  1. Yes I believe it, but I am guilty of self-disrespect and that of others as I am constantly reminded by my son a personal trainer with a nutrition certificate.

      1. I think there might be some miscommunication or I am missing your point. Do you view living an unhealthy lifestyle as a sign of not respecting yourself?

  2. We can see that in our own lives everyday. Ironically the days we feel the worst about ourselves are the days we don’t seem to care too much about fitness, or healthy eating. Those are the days we need it most.

  3. Yes, I do feel that way. But in all honesty I will go into denial and sometimes let my health go much longer than I would let my husbands health issue go. Hate to admit it, but its true.

  4. In my view it’s a sign of mental and physical laziness. I’ve always noticed that people who don’t look after their health are lazy even if some of them work hard for their living. In fact those who work hard for their living but don’t look after their health work only for money or because they are workaholic but in every other aspect of life are lazy Looking after one’s health is a discipline and it comes from a desire to be well.

  5. Yes – I think somewhere in that person lies a deeper psychological problem. For example when I see any overly obese person I think “How did they let themselves get so bad? And not think – I need to do something about this”.

    You can sometimes see this in people who don’t look after there health, they are full of excuses in their day-to-day life.

    My friend who is a personal trainer encountered some of these issues – he said “in many ways I am also like a psychiatrist as I speak to them to help address their problems so they can address their weight loss goals”

  6. This is a tough question. I think it can be a sign of many things. I remember reading about Mickey Mantle and how he abused his body at a young age because all of the men in his family died in their prime. He lived to old age and eventually needed a liver transplant. I think others, like rock musicians, think they are indestructible and have to live a certain lifestyle. Others don’t take care of their health until they have a scary episode. I pack so many things into my life that my own health is not always top of mind, but i have a young daughter and I want to see her grow up, so that keeps me trying to be healthy.

  7. Absolutely! Having all the problems I do, it’s important I keep on top of my health – taking all my medications and getting the necessary tests done as they arise. If you don’t respect yourself, how do you expect others to?
