Ouchie, being heavy is hard on the tootsies.
Did you notice? there are no 'emoticons' for 'sore feet'. There should be. Thats the one part of our bodies that really feels it first. We get the other symptoms (hormonal interference, facial hairs, exhaustion, diabetes, blindness) later on down the line.
Many of us have used weight as an excuse out of our own lives. We hide behind it. We use it to deflect unwanted sexual advances.
We use it to avoid growing up, if we don't date we aren't actually grown up, we don't have all those responsibilities, we don't need to worry about our parents growing old and dying, because we are in a perpetual peter pan like stage of juvenile life. We use it to pretend that life isn't just moving along without us.
But, you know what we can't use it for? Making our feet feel better. OMG, my dogs
