    once upon a time. You used to have a job, friends, a life. But slowly and steadily your self control slipped away. First it was a pound here, a pound there. “I’ll start dieting next week…” but all you did was eat more. Soon you’d become so fat and lazy that even...

    Why is it that the only thing someone can say

    to someone obese is how fat they are? I mean when someone wants to come at me with negative comments it's always about the weight. When I come back at them with something deeper they shut up.
