i am obese. i am obese. i am obese.
hard to say. hard to read. hardest to believe. i was not a chubby kid. i do not see myself as a fat person. but i am obese.
i sit in class, learning all about how obesity kills, causes stroke, diabetes, cardiac disease, and i think...are they looking at me? is that professor looking at me as they talk about the obesity epidemic in this country? in a short while, i'll be sitting across from patients..telling them how important it is that they maintain a healthy weight...and they'll no doubt be thinking that i am a HUGE HYPOCRITE.
i am obese. obesity kills. these things are both true...but one, not for long.

    If they ARE looking at you they're rude... I think.

    More important than to know that obesity kills is to understand how we got to be overweight and what to do about it.

    I'd say you are a soon-to-be-person-of-normal-weight! :)
