9/10 fat people need a swift kick in the ass and some tough love. They don't need to be made to feel all special and given a moniker like "I have a disease."

I know `cause I`m fatty fatso and the only problem I had was me. So I`m down 30 pounds in the last two months and won`t stop until that number is 50 and I`m around 5` 11" / 210.

It was my fault. MY FAULT! I didn`t have a disease, I drank too much and ate too much. So I made a decision to not be an idiot anymore.

I wonder sometimes why I read the comments on this site. Bunch of judgmental prickss, the lot of ya.
It's so easy to sit back and judge when it isn`t your problem. Then again the internet makes it easy to act so inhumane.
FYI i`m not fat, or obese. I was. I had MAJOR back surgery and it changed my entire life. It took me years to adjust and completely alter my lifestyle to lose the weight I gained. I had no help and no one cared. They don`t really cover it during all the doctor visits or in therapy. I was judged as just another fat person. I finally hit a very low point in my life; I`ve gone from 270 (at that point I stopped getting on a scale) to 220. I`m 6` and fairly well muscled so its a pretty good weight for me.
I don`t post twice on any topic if I can help it and almost never respond so have at me. I don`t care. :)

The same is true about alcoholism, drug addiction, or any other behavior-based "disease." The only thing that weak-willed people want to hear is, "It's not your fault." That way, they can continue to behave like spoiled children without having to feel responsible.

Of course, that`s also true for the vast majority of Democrats.
