Yeah, there is something to what you say, no doubt.
For me, you don't have to be thin and athletic looking to be healthy, not at all. Even body builders can have health problems, and I don't mean
hormone shots either.
The difference is, being a giant fat-ass that rides a scooter at WalMart or being overweight because you may have a health problem that is
preventable. I have known people that are way overweight and they all had the same thing in common, they eat like a horse.
Hey, I ain't skinny, I'm not fat either, but for my age I look good, I exercise daily and I eat as well as I can, I eat NO CARBS, at all, purposely.
That was a conscious effort on my part, if I didn't eat the way I do, I would be in not so good shape.
This (fill in the blank here) person has no excuse, and I won't be listening to someone that is so obese that they can't handle it so they make
excuses. I don't feel at all sorry for that (fill in the blank here) either.
People like this are mentally unbalanced and they try their best to make us see it their way, nope.
I was a string bean until I got married, I thought that I could eat anything that I want, giving zero thought to what that was doing to my health. The
difference between me and (fill in the blank here) is that I made a decision to not be like this person. My mother always told me that I took after
her brother, who was always so wiry that (supposedly) he had to eat 3 pounds of bananas to be considered heavy enough to join the U.S. Army back
Whether or not that story is really true, I don't know, but she inadvertently had me thinking I was impervious to all things relating to health
because of what she told me.
Ironically, that string-bean uncle of mine died of a massive heart attack while at the wheel of a Cadillac at the age I am right now, I'm still going.
(So, I'll just never buy a Cadillac!)
