Yeah. I said it. Being fat isn't normal.
Before you get offended just realize that I do not mean it as an insult to anybody anywhere. This is just one fat guy telling you the truth.
It is not normal to run out of air after walking for ten minutes. It is not normal to suffer from joint pain caused by useless extra weight. It is not normal to need a 40inch belt and use only the first hole. It is not normal to crave sugary carbs or fatty foods like a junkie for some meth. It is not normal to avoid being active because you'd rather watch tv.
There is nothing unusual about those things above. They are usual. They are common. They are what average people go through everyday. They are death.
Slowly but surely being fat kills you and I don't mean that your heart is going to explode because it can't take it anymore. No. What I mean is that, one day at a time, it will take away all those things that you like and make you who you are.
- Got a favorite sport? You'll be to fat to play without getting hurt. Permanently.
- Are you a geek who enjoys his comics/movies/games like a conoceur enjoys his fine cigars? Too bad! Diabetes will make you blind.
- Enjoy going out with your friends to enjoy a nice dinner and a couple of drinks? Not anymore. You abused your body so much that none of those will be an option anymore.
If being fat is ok with you by all means continue to be fat. Nobody is judging you. Hell! I know I'm one happy fat guy but I know that in my near future I will have to choose between being fat and being happy.
I choose happy.
