I'm not someone who's overweight, and trying like hell to change that fact. I'm talking about the people that when you see them in a picture, they're 50% bigger than anyone else in that picture.
I was just looking at this picture of a friend of mine, she's gorgeous, in great shape..and one of her friends is next to her. The friend is TWICE as big as her, AT LEAST. I can't imagine why someone in this day and age, knowing what we know about health, the lifespan and quality of life, would let themselves not only get to that level, and then maintain it.
I mean, we've all heard the bullshit excuses "no time [even though they can watch tv for 5 hours/night], "it's all genetics", "it's hard to eat right". But if I'm in a situation where something I'm doing is basically poisoning my body...I don't care how many excuses people make for me, I'm going to do something about it. What people are basically saying is, "Yeah, how I live is shortening my life and lowering it's quality...but...." I mean really? really? I just don't get it anymore. Stuff like this usually doesn't bother me, but that picture I saw today just set me off. The girl's friend looked like she was going to eat her. If I was that obese girl and I saw myself in that photo I would RUN to the fucking gym, yet this girl never will, and I can't imagine a reason for that.
