What do you think of people who are overweight?

I'm not talking about a few vanity pounds. I'm 5'3" and 130 lbs. which is actually considered overweight although I wouldn't consider myself to be. I mean those who are grotesquely overweight and some who are even physically impaired because of it.

  • I felt sorry for them years ago until I found myself in that position. I was 5'10 and 265 pounds. It scared the hell out of me. I went to the doctor and he told me I had diabetes. I made some serious life-style changes. I lost over 100 pounds in less than a year. I have been able to keep it off for over 8 years now. I am 5'10 and 145 pounds. I work hard for it but my health is important. I think people that size are lazy and selfish. I get sick of hearing how hard it is to lose weight and eat right. No, it's not. I have been there so I don't want to hear the excuses. I just think they are selfish for not wanting to be healthier for their families and be a good example.

  • I think it's a shame that they can leech off of the system for something that is self-caused.

  • I wonder whats hurting them and I wonder who was supposed to love them and didn't do it. Food is an addiction just like anything else and comes from a person who needs to be nurtured. Some peoples addictions are just more obvious than others.

  • I don't think anything of them except that they are large ppl. I just read the CM link to an article about overweight women have more sex than thinner women. That's a good thing!
