Another Reason to Get Fit and Trim

Good article from "Health Goes Strong" about the stigma of being obese and how people from other countries view it as a vice.  I know we are big and beautiful, but that is now how people from other countries view it.  From their perspective, "Fat People" are seen as lazy, poor performers, and apathetic.  This just doesn't apply to all of us and I don't like the blank application of these terms for everyone who has a problem with their weight.  If it was as easy as just "pushing away from the table" or to just stop eating 60% of Americans wouldn't be overweight.  34% of the population wouldn't be obese and 2.9% would not be morbidly obese. 

Please check out the article here and please post your feedback below.  I want to hear from you!!


  1. I didn't read the article yet.. but from your tidbit.. I don't think it is just other people in other countries... Its people in our own country as well. I've seen people have this prejudice against me and other bigger people.

  2. That's a really good point and so much truth to it! I've experienced it as well. I appreciate your feedback.

    Keep up the comments and thanks again!
