Some people may think it is okay to be fat and overweight, but I DO NOT and here's why:
Lack of Self Control
Overweight people show a huge lack of self control. The main reason people are fat and overweight is because they lack the discipline to do something productive and of conscious value. They think life is about eating and sleeping and never feel the need to actually do some straight-up WORK and take care of themselves. Life is not one-sided and it does require balance. A bunch of positives (Greasy/Sugary Foods, Watching TV, Being Lazy) need to be offset with some negatives such as eating foods that taste bad, running, swimming, lifting, etc. Life is not all about fun and good and I think that is the problem most overweight people have. They think life is something of take, take, take but their body clearly argues otherwise.
Lack of Confidence
The confidence of most people is tied directly into their body and self-image. Fat people are generally more self-conscious and feel terrible about their weight problem, as they should. It's a sickness and it makes me sick seeing people who are fat continue to eat and lose more and more confidence. Obese people need to wake up from their slumber and join everybody else in this reality we live in called life and take control of a conscience lifestyle.
Fat people show a loss of respect for themselves and others with every breath they take. It really isn't cool using the handicapped cart when you're at the grocery store just because you're fat! Is this really a way to live? Is this really making the most out of a life? I could understand somebody loosing a limb in a car accident or something and having to go through life handicapped and with a new set of challenges and goals. But fat people did not accidentally get hurt or damaged. They consciously decided to loose control and are falling deeper and deeper into a dark state of decay day by day. Nobody should have to live this way.
Overweight people lack the discipline and character to make solid long term moves that will keep them healthy. I have NEVER met an overweight person that enjoys being active and doing things. They usually enjoy staying at home and watching TV or doing other non-physical activities such as being sad. To me, this is not healthy. Being tired all the time and feeling like everyone hates you is not healthy and not normal. Your body is a fine-tuned machine that requires maintenance and work for optimal performance.
I understand that some people may have more difficulty keeping thin genetically, but that is no excuse for letting yourself go - it just means it will be harder to keep yourself in shape. Some people's hair grows quicker than others... so they cut it more! Some people are fatter than others so they SHOULD run more! I have yet to see anybody put on weight by running, EVER.
Obesity is a problem in America and every time I see an obese person it hurts me. Unfortunately there really isn't much I can do to get people to take care of themselves, it's their life and it's up to them. Quite frankly I sit here in disgust knowing that obesity is directly connected to a weak character and a weak mind. I don't feel bad that people are overweight and I hope the detriments of being fat eventually creates an urgency to do something about it and people finally step up and take control of their life. Life isn't one-sided, it's not all about me me me.
