I'm glad you included people who are on medications or are depressed...but I'd argue that some people do indeed have gland problems. I personally
have an underactive thyroid (very mild case fortunately) which in essence makes it very difficult for me to lose weight, and very easy to put it on.
I've gained a tiny bit of weight in the last year but have started to work real hard to try to get it back off. Thing is, I have to work like 5 times
harder than normal to see any progress...but I still fit into all my size 8's so I think I'll be ok...
That being said, I see morbidly obese people and I wonder how they honestly could let themselves go like that. Do they have no will to live? Do they
just not care? Setting aside all the excusable reasons like medicine and disabilities (and even then people, you dont have to become MORBIDLY
obese..), I just dont know how people can let it happen.
And no, sorry ladies, fat is not beautiful. Ever. Its disgusting, unhealthy, and just plain looks bad (and I dont care what previous societies or
cultures thought, we're living here and now..and we all know fat is unhealthy). I wish I could tell every fat 20 something I see trying to wear a
tight pair of jeans and blouse, with some 'all that and a bag of chips' attitude, that no honey..you dont look good...you're fat, and as lon as
you're fat like that you will never really look 'good' (unless the guy eyeing you is a chubby chaser..and even then..)
One thing I don't get is people can harp on you for being a smoker and say 'oh its so bad for you bla bla', but its politically incorrect to tell
someone how fat and unhealthy they are? How awful they look like that and why the hell would they let themselves go like that? Another pet peeve of
mine is fat women and men alike within the subculture I identify with, which is goth. For some unknown reason, goth attracts a LOT of really fat
people...they seem to flock to it, apparently thinking it is one of the only styles they can get away with being so fat, for example wearing a corset.
But honey if you have a 2 foot buttcrack running down your back from wearing a corset...you're too godamn fat to wear that and anything else
Just an afterthought...if we forced everyone who was really fat (aside the predetermined excuses) to wear nothing but burlap sack clothing, do you
think people might start looking after their health more? lol...I'm only kidding. Really though, I'd like to see what burlap sack clothing would
look like..any fashion designers here? lol!
