Are Fat People Just Lazy?

Aug 17, 2007
An estimated 64% of Americans are considered overweight. That equates to over 125 million people that are overweight. Or you can just tell it like it is, which equates to over 125 million FAT Americans, which also means that there are a lot of very unattractive Americans.

Many people think that someone being overweight has been the result of you being lazy, unhealthy, unhappy, selfish, greedy, and unattractive. This simply not true, overweight Americans are often some of the hardest working career-conscious individuals. They are overworked and often fall into weight problems because they are working long hours, without enough rest and exercise! Probably of the other 36% of thinner adults choose to condemn those Americans who aren't as fortunate to have a fast metabolism and the luxury of time to exercise. These people have the time, because they also find the time to ridicule the other 64% of the population that need to lose a few pounds.

Being overweight is still considered one of the biggest sins someone can do to their own bodies , but what about the people out there with true medical problems that prevent them from being thin.? Do they still fall into the thin person's stereotype of a FAT LAZY person? What about people who have genetic conditions that predispose them to being overweight no matter what they do?

The problem is that people who are exceptionally overweight allow others to ridicule them about their weight and some may even joke about it themselves. The misconceptions that people who are overweight won't work, are overall lazy people, unhappy, unattractive is totally ridiculous.

Some of the most beautiful women in the world are either overweight now or have been at some time in their life. LOOK AT OPRAH! She is beautiful, but she wasn't always the size she is now, but she was still a pretty happy woman, not to mention a huge success. If you look in the "heftier women magazines" you will find more beautiful women than what you find on the runways of New York, it's a fact. Heck, look at how heavy Anna Nicole Smith was!

So you might be overweight, big deal, you are a beautiful person inside and out. Can anyone thin top that?

If you want to lose weight there are many easy ways to get started. You need to look at whether or not it is a health issue. If you have a lot of abdominal fat then it can definitely cause health issues.
