How to make it important enough in the long term is the real question to ask.....

I thought that was what she was asking? Would $45 a pound be enough of an incentive for you to lose weight?

Honestly, I'd say probably not in America, because while there are those who try out and compete in shows like the Biggest Loser, most would prefer to just sit in their livingrooms and watch it unfold on t.v.

And given that we all either know or have heard stories about folks who were told that their unhealthy lifestyle would kill them, yet they continue on that path, I would assert that like everything else, weightloss has to have an internal trigger for the individual that makes it worth it.
