Its NOT easy!

I am a bit annoyed and perturbed. This afternoon one of my facebook friends posted something that upset me. She said that its a lot easier to be overweight and unhealthy than it is to be fit and healthy. She has never been overweight, which upset me a lot more than it would have if she was posting her personal opinion based on her own experience.

It is NOT easy to be overweight. Its not easy to not be able to find clothes that fit right. Its not easy to play with your kids, because its not easy to move. Its not easy to feel uncomfortable around everyone. Its not easy to have no self confidence or any self esteem. It is NOT EASY changing our entire lives- OUR ENTIRE LIVES! to make changes to become healthier. It's not easy. Do I think its easy its be fit? Not necessarily. Do I think its easy to be thin? Not necessarily. I've never been fit, I've never been thin so I can't say if my life would be easier or harder. All I know is that I would not choose to be overweight, obese, or fat.

  1. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU! Yea, sure if people are thin they usually look healthier so its easy to judge someone who is overweight and say they are not healthy but the truth is a thin person can be just as unhealthy. SO, she can flloat her own boat and toot her own horn and be happy she was born into the right family because there is a big damn difference having to struggle every day of your life to take a pound off vs being naturally thin!!!
