I am of the opinion that it is not ok to be fat. To clarify I don't mean this from a social perspective. It should never be ok to discriminate against someone who is fat. That should go without saying.That being said, obesity is a disease and it will kill you. If you have cancer, you treat it right? You change your life to beat cancer. Endure surgery, radiation and chemotherapy that leaves you weakened and hairless. But, when a lot of people become obese, they go straight into denial. Usual suspect excuses like "I'm not fat, I'm just big boned.", are tossed around.These excuses, and there are many more than the one example I gave, only enable people to remain in the delusion state they are probably in with regards to their weight. An obese person is statistically much more likely to become a chronic burden on the health care system and more importantly on their family.
