What's it to you? To any of you? Why is it your business to talk about anyone for any reason on this level? Why not trash smokers who have emphesema? Junkies who have brain damage?
Because it's bull***t and you know it, that's why. This isn't "Gee, these people seem so unhappy, I wish they would lose weight so they'd feel better and be healthier". It's "I can't stand these fat pigs, shaved monkeys" and whatever other namecalling you juveniles want to indulge in. Not a single one can honestly say you are concerned.
And if you did, I'd be inclined to think it was just to look good in print. The initial attack was on children, in fact, not even on adults who might be able to defend themselves. Why do any of you need to have a valid excuse from anyone for their condition? Who are you? What have you done that anyone should explain themselves to you?
What position of consequence do you hold in society that entitles you to sit in judgement of anyone? How do these people affect you in your daily life besides being unpleasing to the eye?
You can say "health care costs" and that would be a load because you can say the same to smokers, drunks and junkies too. Your goal is not to help people who are already having trouble. Your goal is to pound them down even further.
I don't even know why I'm bothering. I'm sure no argument will make it through your smug, self-righteous shell anyway. One day it'll come back on you and you'll feel the same frustration. Someone will feel obligated to point out the disgusting worthlessness of someone you value. I hope you'll take it as something you and they deserved.

I don't have children, and if I did, I'd make sure they don't end up with the struggle I'm currently in. I'm not an excuse maker.
Who are you to scold? If you're so worried about it, why not offer solutions that aren't laced with insult and hatred?
Because offering solutions is not what this is about. This is about people attacking other people. It doesn't matter how much I work to resolve my problem, I'm still attacked because people take me at face value and know nothing about me personally.
So no, it's not just a case of the stereotypical insult of "shoving big macs down your throat". I'd get the same stupid, insensitive judgemental reaction from you if I'd just finished a small salad and bottle of water and was on my way to the gym
Yes, I know people who have fat kids and they themselves are overweight and I ask them "what the hell are you doing??"
As far as pointing to other bad behavior to justify anyone else's, that wasn't the point at all and I'd suggest re-reading it to get it. Or don't. I don't think anyone wants to get it, really. Just keep taking cheap shots so you can feel good about yourself in your gleaming rightness.
