    As I was waiting at a stoplight earlier, I watched an obese man walking across the crosswalk (huffing & puffing as if he was running a marathon) carrying a large Domino's Pizza-box... and this got me to wondering ... What occurred in this mans life that led him to overeat again & again, to the point where he could no longer take a simple stroll down the street without sweating profusely & gasping for air ... It seems to be a lonely, sad existence when your only friends are food & online message-boards...


    Since I know a majority of you regular posters are obese, I thought I'd get the answer straight from the Elephants mouth :) ....Help me to understand the psychology of your pain

    I don't stick my nose into other's problems or issues. Obesity is a form of addiction and self loathing, just like alcohol, drugs, sex, power, etc...everyone has a cross to bear.

    Notice how I didn't say that I stuck my nose in this mans business, nor did I offer him unsolicited advice or "help" ..... I merely contemplated where it all went wrong for this person...

    So is an 8 ounce piece of grilled Chicken Breast & a half cup of steamed rice ... That's equally as delicious

    life hurts
    people hurt
    food used to taste good and relieve the pain.
    food was available before drugs

    not very complicated.

    He's one of the rare ones that actually flaunts his obesity related behavior... But, I have a hunch that (deep inside) he's horribly unhappy with his outward appearance, & the way he feels

    But again.. There's a big difference between enjoying unhealthy food every now & again... AND, eating compulsively & unhealthy every single day
