I started working at a new company a couple weeks ago. For the first time in my career, the majority of the people I'm around are fat. (Ironically, it's a healthcare company!) And you know what? I can't stand it.
You're short? You're ugly? You have a disability? You have a different skin color than me? None of that bugs me. It's how you were born, and it's beyond your control.
But being fat: 100% under your control. Okay, maybe you have some legitimate disorder that causes fat to accumulate. Let's compromise and say for 95% of people, it's 100% under your control.
I find I cannot take fat people seriously. I tune them out. Their bodies disgust me. Inside I laugh when they have to take the elevator. (We work in a two story office building.) Then I get depressed because I know I'll be paying for these trainwrecks the rest of my life.
Are you fat and don't want to be fat? It's literally this simple: don't eat so f'ing much. Don't worry about going Paleo or juicing or wraps or whatever stupid craze is out there. Just eat less. You'll even save money for god's sake!
Is it easy? Of course not! It takes willpower, and dedication, and commitment. But you know what else is hard? Being fat. Being so fat you're constantly buying new clothes. Being so fat you're out of breath going up one flight of stairs. Being so fat you can't wear lace up shoes anymore. Being so fat you reek because you can't clean your whole body.
