How can you pass judgement on someone based on weight?

I think that food and trying to control it is a personal thing that is hard. It is different than alcholoics b/c they can just stop drinking. You cannot just stop eating, I know what I should eat and I try, then sometimes those old habits come in and I am eating junk. It is a struggle and how dare some one want to take the pizza out of my cart!

you don't know the struggle of others!!

  • I couldn't agree with you more! I think some people feel better about themselves by putting others down!

  • I get what you're saying but for the record, alcoholics can't just 'stop drinking...'

    But I understand what you meant.

  • good for you for not being Anon :)

    I am fat & proud myself. Sometimes I eat spinach salads and boiled chicken. And often I eat a pepsi and a yogurt. I am active, keep closer track of my heart, blood pressure, making sure I am not diabetic, etc. you can be skinny and sick. you can also be overweight and in good health. there's exceptions to every rule of course.

    I agree.  No one knows what someone else is going through.  It's difficult.  I quit smoking many years ago and gained weight.  I have struggled with my weight since then.  Quitting smoking was easy compared to this.

  • If it is a stranger, then you dont know the whole story and really shouldnt pass judgement... but if you know the story then perhaps you CAN have an opinion.

  • I don't pass judgement on heavier set people. I had a friend in school who was a little bigger and couldn't help it. She ate healthy, exercised, did everything right, but could not lose th weight. Some people are just judgemental and do not realize that it is not always the persons fault.

  • I can't stand people who Put other people down because they think they are "BETTER" then you!! their attitude makes them Butt Effing ugly. My friend is big but I still look at her as MY BEST FRIEND not overweight or anything. I think she is beautiful for being her!! Funny thing is My friend exercises has been on Diets and tried Diet pills And NOTHING has worked for her. Sometimes even if you can control your eating habits You still can't lose weight so what then you know? I don't looke at "fat" people as Fat. They are just bigger and still just as beautiful. :) Sorry if i sounded rude but its a touchy subject for me because to many times Ive had people hurt my friend because she's "fat". And it just pisses me off!! lol
