While some women can't lose weight no matter how hard they try, there ARE some who just 'let themselves go' . . . and it just ain't pretty.

Gee, lets see, a grossly overweight woman is walking down the street or riding on some sort of transportation and I'm supposed to, 1. make way for her, 2. feel sorry for her, 3. adjust my life for her. Well it is none of the above. A fat person is a fat person no matter how you dress it. In other words, you can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
