Hey "Vonnie", I put in the physiology caeavt and if the shoe doesn't fit, why complain? Can I be condescending to you too?But being in the military, I have seen and known many enormously bloated people lose the weight and keep it off by simply eating less and exercizing. Lack of self control was the key to alot of this. I don't try to generalise, but when some people start crying about discrimination and what others think of you; well, thats life, deal with it. If you can't lose the weight due to physiology, fine. Fit and fat is cool.But too many fatties use the "I'm big boned" or other cheap excuse rather than stepping away from the donuts and taking responsibility for their eating and excercise habits. Then they demand that they be given special status as some sort of victim constituency, and infere that the rest of us mean bigots for noticing that they're fat. Do I really have to list all of the disease and health risks of being overweight to make the point?
