Hmmm... I don't think problems with diet and exercise are reserved for people with personality disorders. :) Otherwise more people would be lean and fit.

There are lots of reasons totally unrelated to personality disorders to have trouble with that. For myself it's as simple as I feel lousy when I'm hungry, and exercise makes me sleepy and irritable.

Or maybe you could be afraid to lose weight and exercise more for fear that your life wouldn't be as wonderful as you'd hope.

Or it could be any number of things.

It might be helpful to figure out why. But for myself, realizing that I'm irritable enough to spit nails if I don't get enough carbohydrates does nothing to make me cut down on carbs. But I have quit eating too much of them (at least much of the time) because they make me feel sleepy and unwell. Understanding doesn't lead to change, for me.
