You know I think that ultimately mental issues are involved, and this self destructive behaviour has a lot of sadness behind it.
I have alot of various thoughts on this issue but right now after seeing that picyure I am thinking of one of my best friends who is probably about 400 lbs. We have had many talks about his weight and he is the only obese person I have ever met that has never made an excuse for his weight he specifically will tell you "I am fat because of the things I eat and my lack of activity!"
I also realize that when I see him because he is such a great person truly a decent man I don't readily see the big Fat Guy I just see my friend.
And right now he is experiancing a lot of not so good times in his life and is depressed. And that scares me as I do not want to lose my friend but I cannot make him want to begin.
I have tried and I will continue to do so but he needs to want to on his own.
If it doesn't happen soon I will bury my Friend and then I'm going to finally feel the depression he does.
I don't have the answer the answer is in the heart and mind of each obese person.
I'm going to call my friend.
