  • I don't know anyone who has been discriminated against because of their weight - but I do know of one that used that as an excuse, and claimed everyone was against her because of weight. In truth, she was mean-spirited, and a little lazy. She wasn't being promoted because she wasn't promotable, not because of her weight.

    I do think this happens, but I'm not sure that there is an accurate way to determine how wide-spread it is.

  • No, not specifically. The overweight people I know that haven't been able to move ahead in their careers have been passed over for work related reasons, not their weight.
