Imagine having a heart attack and being rushed to a casualty hospital, would you care if the medics were Black, Jewish or overweight? get my drift? it would not cross your mind. No sane person would believe the average person goes out of their way to become heavily overweight, but like the Black person, the Jew, the Gay person, we are what we are.
Clearly, for so many losing weight is extremely difficult, the person that comes up with a 100% successful way for all people who want to lose weight, would become so rich he or she would be sending welfare parcels to Bill Gates.
So, I say to the heavily overweight person, cut yourselves some slack. People only ever notice once, and only a bigoted fool and coward, with their own fears and prejudice, would ever make any mileage out of the situation.
The sad thing is a lot of unhealthy weights are directly related to the cost of food. Anything that says organic is three times the price in our area. Fresh food is much higher than processed food, too.
A friend and I were stopped at a gas station. A girl walked by and from my view she wasn't too heavy but my friend says, Isn't that pitiful? I responded quickly and said she wasn't that heavy. She said, No, she's pregnant and I feel sorry for her in this heat. Of course my friend had just had a medical procedure where they put her to sleep and she wasn't fully herself yet.
What bothers me is there are many children here that worry about fat and are not an unhealthy weight. Television, I think, has a lot to do with the image we think we should be.
Have a wonderful evening.
Agree television and magazines do not always help the young to see the REAL picture.
Whereas eating REAL food is always better.
Thank you Gail and Ted for your thoughts and comments.
