It's a problem if they're riding a horse that's too small for them. But it's a problem for themselves as well.
My brother has alot of bigger friends who come over for their "girls night" (he's gay) and they always complain about being too fat or no boys like me, or something that always has to do with their weight. I sit there listening to what they have to say and I say, "why don't you join a gym" and they get so pissed and say, "DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO BE FAT, I'VE TRIED LOSING WEIGHT A HUNDRED THOUSAND TIMES". As they're all ganging up on me they have a bag of Doritos in one hand and ice cream in the other..
America is just so used to having everything in their reach, and we're lazy, and disgusting. I know I probably sound ignorant but it IS problem and unless you have some crazy medical issue that makes you fat, YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF. Even if it's a "thyroid issue". Sorry, I don't know why I have a grudge. I suppose the only time I do is when they complain about bring fat but are too lazy to help themselves. I mean if they don't complain then I don't care.
And I get that it's hard, I really do, but people just have to many excuses as to why they are overweight. If you eat right and exercise you WILL loose weight. No it won't happen overnight (which is another problem, America always wants to take a shortcut and have overnight results) but it WILL happen.
Just my two cents.. :/ Haha, can you tell that I've had this conversation a time or two?
