Ok, me and my DH where going into the Walmart parking lot. I see this female looked like she was in her 20's. Holding a sign. Saying she was homeless, and some other stuff. I stopped reading after the homeless part. She was not dressed to bad. Sweatpants and a t shirt. No worse then I have seen in Walmart . The thing I seen that I didn't understand was. How a homeless person could be fat, or over weight? My DH said, maybe she is justresonantly homeless? I said, could be. But she won't get much help looking like she is well fed. My thought is, I think of homeless as thin people. Because they can't eat regularly. So what is your thought/opinions on this?
didn't know where to put this.

Many truly homeless people resort to eating convenience foods that are not exactly the most nutritious foods available. There are a lot of reason she may be overweight, some of which have nothing to do with eating.

A homeless person is an individual without permanent housing who may live on the streets; stay in a shelter, mission, single room occupancy facilities, abandoned building or vehicle; or in any other unstable or non-permanent situation.
