Yes, I think a person's weight is a reflection of them.
Yes, I wish I didn't but I do unconsciously judge them.
No, I wish they would take their health more seriously, but I don't judge them.
No, weight is cosmetic and many overweight people simply can't help it..

Why does this fat crap keep staying near the top of Opinion Polls?
"If Republicans wanted to Destroy America, they would Vote Democrat."
And MANY of those conditions create LOTS of PAIN, so distraction is even more desired than it is for the avarage American who sits on their butt 10 hours a day watching TV with GOOD legs, spines, etc.
When a physical problem confines people in a wheelchair, the lack of movement makes it virtually impossible to control weight, and often the physical problems that got them there make movement a problem anyway!
Further, when you are confined like that surround with a--holes like this, what else is there to live for but a good meal? Are ya gonna live on 600 calories a day in order to keep sitting in a wheelchair another 5 years until the age of 45 instead of 4 to die of an embolism instead of a heart attack?
I have come to the point where i hope people who think like this get to find out what it is like before they leave this world.
im fat and i donít like looking at other fat people but i donít avoid people who are fat and that doesnít stop me from likening them if there otherwise nice then I donít care so much
on other hand some people are to skinny when the bones tart sticking out enough at some point i donít like that any more either
For those unfamiliar with Peripheral Neuropathy:
I had lost 45 lbs when I went looking for a job. I had plenty of interviews. I always looked directly at the interviewers face the instant I walked in the door. Their facial expressions said it all. Once before I found the job I have now, I walked in and I could tell right away it was going to be a waste of time. So, I was blunt (I'm good at that). I said I can tell by the look on your face your put off by my weight. Since the job is for a computer network tech, I won't be dealing with your customers just your employees so one would think, you'd be judging me by my ability not my appearance. But you've obviously made up your mind before I shook your hand. So I'll save you the trouble.......Thanks for the interview, but I think I'll take my straight A's in school and go elsewhere. She followed me out to the lobby trying to explain all the way. I stopped and told her I'd rather drink water from a Dodger's Stadium toilet than waste my talent on folks like them.Definition
Peripheral neuropathy, a result of nerve damage, often causes numbness and pain in your hands and feet. People typically describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning, while they may compare the loss of sensation to the feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove.
Most commonly, peripheral neuropathy starts in the longest nerves — the ones that reach to your toes. Symptoms vary, depending on which types of nerves are affected. Signs and symptoms may include:
Gradual onset of numbness and tingling in your feet or hands, which may spread upward into your legs and arms
Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
Extreme sensitivity to touch, even light touch
Lack of coordination
Muscle weakness or paralysis if motor nerves are affected
Bowel or bladder problems if autonomic nerves are affected

We are going to put an end to the notion that the American taxpayer exists to fund the federal government. The federal government exists to serve the American people. - Ronald Reagan, 1980 Nomination Acceptance Speech
What mmazes me, Fiddler, are the fat enablers. You can understand them but I can't. Remember the woman who sat on her couch until her body and the couch fused? When they removed her the couch had to go with her and be surgically removed. Someone was feeding that woman while she sat and crapped on the couch. So, tell me, Fiddler, what's an enablers thought process? Oh, and Fiddler, if they're paying for their food, they can pay for gastric bypass surgery. Staying fat isn't cheap.
Hmm. Apparantly this is not that uncommon.
Man who sat for 2 years dies on couch. "There, emergency medical workers were called to the home of a 43-year-old man who had sat in his recliner for so long ó at least two years ó that his skin had grown into the chairís fabric. He had been using the bathroom in his pants and maggots were visible, according to a local TV station."
And the most bizarre. NESS CITY, Kan. Deputies said a woman in western Kansas sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years, and they're investigating whether she was mistreated.

Unless there is some kind of biological metabolic failure... being fat is a choice... just like being a smoker or a drug abuser. Fat by choice is not the path a logical healthy mind takes. Fat by choice points to lack of self control... personal apathy, self destructive behavior. Its 0ne out 100 times I see a fat person at the local 7-11 opt for an ozarka and a bag of almonds over a bearclaw and a 44 oz big gulp.
Yep... 99% of the time I look at a fat person and think to myself that this person lacks in character.
