I'm not loving the assumption that fat=slow, out-of-breath and unfashionable.
I'm also not pleased with the characterization of larger runners/exercisers as hiding in shame. I never hide now, and never did, not even when I weighed 300 pounds. Not all of us gained weight because we had self-esteem issues.
I don't deserve any more accolades than a thin person for going to the gym regularly. It's just taking care of yourself and there is nothing heroic about it.
