:shock: I think thats really horrible! Imagine that, no, I dont want to be your friend, obesity is socially unacceptable...what about ppl who eat emotionally? If they are outcast (more than usual :roll: ) then would that not turn a LOT of people to food? Making the problem worse? I think its sending a really wrong message...that you are 'below' people who are healthy or thin, just because you are bigger...fair enough, (and my family is an example) that if you have one overweight person, its easier to be overweight yourself, if you choose to pick up the habits or feeling ok becuase the other person is fat too....but I think thats just unfair! Its pure nastiness! :shock: * jumps off her soap box* :D

we were actually discussing this issue yesterday and the whole thing about the obesity 'epidemic' and how the metaphor of it being some catchy desease may be increasing the hypervigilance and eating disorders and morbid obsession with food.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
