you write you cannot understand that people without kids can get fat. I don't take this personally, because I'm not obese, but as an explanation:
People react differently to events in life. Emotional stress for example, can be a cause for intensive workouts (like you would do, as I assume), but also for emotional eating up to eating disorders, or for aggression or depression. Those are just some of the ways people cope with intensive life events, depending on their personality. Many of them are here to change into a healthy way of dealing with things, like you obviously already do. Don't judge them on how they react, but inspire and encouragy them to change to a better way of dealing with everything :-)
PS: please excuse my writing, I'm not an English native speaker.
