It's not thyroid crap! People who are obese 300 and 400 pounds do it to themselves for some kind of self indulgence punishment!
They don't have the proper positive encouragement in their lives to get them on a decent track of life......

Cool ! Perfect also I agree
Exactly what I meant when I said we HAVE TO have the ability to be proud of OURSELVES
A LOT of self diagnosis & very much OVER diagnoses of all manner of problems ,both real & imagined & certain people ,teens,people who already had some issues can succumb to a lot of simple problems,that become life threatening.
I wrote a few lines once about the ability to be comfortable in our own skin ,it applies here also , I am proud to be my own best friend , I speak with people frequently about having the ability to support OURSELVES , not trying to ramble ,but supporting others & ourselves is a necessary evil.

It's not so much that 'they' should be proud of their bodies, it's just that neither should they [or anyone else] be ashamed of their bodies. Because the way our bodies look is not a moral issue, and it has nothing to do with the type of person, a person is. It's kind of a non-issue in other words, and when someone points out or makes issue with another person's body type well, it says more about the commenter than it does the heavy/thin person... their general lack of maturity, and perspective on life. I've worked hard keeping my body relatively thin and in good tone, simply because I feel better that way and makes it easier to do by outdoor activities. But if someone is not like that, it's none of my business (or anyone else's).

Not a question of how their lazy arses got that way, nor about your pipe dreams of running a fat ranch.

Simple question, really.

Quit being so hard on folks for staying on topic.

Oh but it is a moral issue when they allow themselves to become obese. I would guess that most of them cost society with the illnesses caused by being so obese. They can't pay the hospital bills because they ate every penny that goes through their worthless fingers. So it falls onto the healthy working folks to pay their way.
Too obese to work.....we give em welfare, food stamps and free medical and send special buses to haul their lazy fat arses around.

Remember, we are talking obese, not fat.
Giving them sympathy is just enabling them.
Remember tough love?
Truth is always best.

Did you know that smokers are prone to gaining weight faster than other people.

Obese people crack me up when they walk into a fast food joint and order a supersized meal and dessert and then order a diet cola.

If anyone checked to see what is the norm and how much we should weigh at certain height or age, it is odd. I'm 5'5" over fifty and weigh 140. I'm on the cusp of being average (normal) and obese. Go figure!

I understand that some have medical issues and medications add weight, but many are just fat and do nothing to prevent it. They are lazy and enjoy junk food.

I'd rather kiss a smoker than a fat chick (provided the smoker is NOT a fat chick herself).

I meant to say, I caught that. Don't know how I planned to spell it, looks like it would have been a big fat typo. Doh! Pardon the pun and off topic pun.
