I have been seeing more and more posts about fat people, fat kids, or lazy people and I am sick of seeing it.

Who are you to judge us? I am sure there are things about you that are not so perfect either, how would you like to be told your nose is to big, or your chest size is that of a preadolecance boy, or that your hair looks like a bed of dry half rotted straw? Maybe your pores are the size of Texas, or your back hair makes us want to gag? The stench of your bath in perfume or cologne is enough to make a pig turn away in disgust.

But oh wait,.....your thin, so none of that matters right? Um, WRONG folks notice those things to, but few people jump online to rant about it, so your secret ugly part is not talked about often.....but guess what we ALL see it.

What does the size of my rear have to do with you? Does it change who I am? If you were in need of help, would my weight bar you from accepting my help? I am a good person, help out anyone who asks, I am not hideous, rude, or smell bad.....but you think it's ok to try and point out and laugh about my size.....you think I don't know I have a double chin? Or that I sit more then walk? That if I wanted to eat salad all day and spend 3 hours a day working out I could be thin? I know this....don't need you to point it out, because the fact is I am ok with who I am. No amount of laughter, finger pointing or rude comments is going to change who I am......so all your doing is wasting your time, and making yourself look like a fool for pointing out the obvious.

This world is a cruel enough place without us having to rip each other a part in order to make ourselves feel better. Instead of trying to tear others down, do something more productive with yourself then sitting on Facebook or topix talking about the weight of other people.

Some people are lucky they eat and never gain weight, some people work hard to stay thin, and some people choose to stay overweight.......but tell me, what does that have to do with you? Why is it ok to call me a. Cow, or lazy, or disgusting. Those words hurt.......they invade my brain and try to tell me I am less then you, when in reality I am not, you are no better of a person then me based only on the size of our jeans......it's WHO you are that dictates if your better then someone else.

I pray all your family and children never suffer with weight issues........because until you hear yourself being called that name, or your child comes home crying because someone called her that name, you don't know real pain. Don't be the cause of someone else pain..........

It speaks to your character. Lazy, unwilling to get healthy for your family or children. Your higher propensity for serious diseases like diabetes and heart problems strains the health care system for the rest of us who don't eat an entire extra large pizza in one sitting.

So yeah, it is my business. Have some self respect and eat healthy, diet and exercise!

Reasonably intelligent adults know the dangers and risks of being overweight. There's no need for people to be called names and be told they're lazy unless you've walked a few miles in their shoes.

The poster is justified is telling us how she feels for a change instead of hearing us tell her how we feel about her weight.

Everyone judges other people. You are judging the comments people make. The simple fact is that obese people cause higher health car costs. While personally I could care less if you want to be a quivering mound of jello it does bother me that your laziness costs me money. While you may think its cruel for someone to tell you it's good for you to have a good diet and exercise because its just so hard. It would do you some good.

Yes overweight people do cost more in the long run.........but it's not overweight people who are killing us in healthcare cost, it's people who choose not to work. I pay my insurance rates and co payments......I pay increased taxes so others can not work.

My weight is none of your business, pure and simple. Overweight people cost more, but so do smokers, seniors who don't stop their doctor from running unneeded tests, people who want to live hazard lifestyles like riding on motorcycles. Lots of things factor into the cost of health care......not just fat people. It's one thing to say "obesity costs us more so you should eat healthy and ex recipe more" but calling people fat and cow and other hateful hurtful names are just not needed.......it's childish and bully behavior. That is reality.

Your comment would have been ok, until you added the jello words.......my point is simple, why did you feel the need to say a hurtful thing like that? Did it make your point about health care? No it did not, it was just your way of trying to make fun of me......in other words your nothing more then a school yard bully.

Obviously you missed the whole point of my post.........but let me try and break it down Barney style for you.(Yes now I am making fun of you) my point is this, if your concerned about the rising cost of health care then fine, but when you make it personal that has nothing to do with health care, it just is a way for you to try and hurt someone to make yourself feel better.

So the question is this..........why? Yep, why did you add the hurtful comment?

And my last comment.....how does lazy and overweight work. You keep saying, my laziness, how do you know I am lazy? I work 60 hours a week to support my family, have 4 children, one in college and the others teenagers. I keep my home clean, I cook for my family instead of hitting up al the burger joints. I run errands all day on my one day off.......there is nothing lazy about me. Do I spend a hour a day at the gym? No......I don't have time to spend a hour a day doing anything, let alone running on a treadmil. Could I find the time? Maybe.......if it meant a great deal of importance to me, but I am ok with who I am, I don't want or need to be a size 2 in order to feel good about myself.....I know who I am, and even with my weight, I am happy and content wi who I am. At the end of the day, I know I am a good person and that I live my life trying to be a good person. If others tried this, they MIT find what is lacking in their own lives.

I see you post all the time hurtful comments to people, is that what you want to be known as, the guy who spent all his time on topix making other people ashamed? What happened in your life that made you so bitter? You need to open your heart and find your own happiness instead of trying to steal it from other people........someday you will look back on your actions and feel real shame.

Why should I care about you if you don't? You say you could exercise if you really wanted to but you don't. You could eat a healthier diet but that's probably not convenient for you either. Why should I tiptoe around your feelings when you trample my wallet without a second thought?

You're a prime candidate for lap band surgery. If you can't afford it, save up for it. In the interim, there are plenty of low cost psychological services available to you.

No one asked you to tip toe around my feelings.......calling someone a cow or a mound of jello is not exactly tip toeing now is it? Saying your mad that the obesity issue is costing you money is a fair statement.....calling me a mound of jello, is not. I am not saying you should go out of your way to be kind, I am just saying don't go out of your way to be a jerk. Why is that wrong of me to ask? I respect your anger of the cost of medical coverage, though I think it's a very thin excuse......do you also complain about senior citizens who allow their doctor to jack up tests for attention, or single moms who choose to collect welfare, do you point your finger at motorcycle riders? Or when was the last time you flipped out and called a toddler a name for the sky rocking cost of head start that is needed because so many of our teachers can not teach? If your gonna complain about the cost, all those things cost as much if not more then the obesity epidemic.

I am not saying you do not have a right to be angry about the cost.........but that anger does not give you the right to attack people and call them names. It has nothing to do with tip toeing around.....it has to do with having morals and enough decency to not try and hurt someone for no reason other then your own personal satisfaction.

I could sit here and call you names all day, but what would that prove? Would it stop you from being mean? Of course not, just like you calling me fat is not gonna suddenly make me decide to switch from a Big Mac to a side salad.

I do not feel that I overeat, nor do I feel that I eat unhealthy. In fact most people I know eat more portions then I do, and I cook at home generally all the time. I don't make large pizzas and I don't eat until I am stuffed. I spend more time moving then sitting......I go hiking with my kids three or four times a month, I play basketball with them at least once a week, the last time I was at the doctors I was told that I was healthy, no diabetes, high blood pressure or other concerns, but I am obese. I have done the diet thing, excercised for a hour a day everyday, drop 20 or 30 pounds and then stalled out........I just decided on my own that I refuse to stress over the size of my jeans. I am happy with where I am and I refuse to eat salad everyday and give up free time with my kids so I can fit into the mold that someone else thinks is right for me. I work 60 hours a week and have one day off a week........I would rather spend what little free time I do have making memories with my kids then trying to drop some weight......if that makes me a bad person to you then so be it, but at least be kind enough to not try to hurt me for something you do not understand.

Thank you.......sadly if more people took this stance there would be a lot less pain in this world. Being overweight is painful to many people, and while it seems easy to lose weight until you have been seriously overweight most people do not really understand how hard it really is. I am not saying it's right......but the reality is weight loss is not easy. But being ostracized or picked on over it is not acceptable regardless of how someone feels.

Thank you for the kindness you give to others......while you may not know it, when you choose to not participate in bully behavior you have prevented someone from feeling like dirt.

I'm not going to complain about kids or old people because they can't do anything about their age. You can do something about your weight and as you've pointed out, you choose not to da anything about your obesity. As for the jello comment, sorry, but that's exactly what you people (yep you people) look like to me. If I see someone waddling around looking like a bunch of chewed up bubble gum I don't have to censor myself. If you don't like it don't read it or do something to change yourself. It's good for you and your family.

I have gained weight over the last year. But I have always owned that fact!!! For the last year, I have been averaging 65-70 hrs a week working to build a business to support my family. At the end of the day, I just simply don't feel like going to the gym. But I have also learned a lesson that has helped me...If you aren't feeding me, financing me, or f^{king me, it is none of your business!!!
