Its a shame people are not a bit less judgemental , its easy to look and just say fat git without any thought for why that might be ? food can be the same crutch as drugs or alchol or whatever to some people . sure thats not true for everyone but being overweight does not make me a bad person or less human than the next guy , im also not stupid, i get that when you put more in than you burn off you gain weight , in the same helpfull way people say " you have put on a few pounds " like i dont fecking know that every time i catch a glimpse of myself in shop window .
Im in my early 50s now and overweight but have been fit and a keen mountain biker as well as a fighter , competing in boxing , muay thai and MMA in my 20s and 30s , something i still coach now , coming back to bikes and watching my diet has helped me drop 2.5 stone in the past couple of months , its a small start and a long way to go but its a start .So please dont think overweight iautomatically means lazy, greedy ,weak human being , everyone is different .
I didn't say anything about how stupid or lazy, greedy or weak fat people are, I'm considered obese I used to be a long distance runner and rode miles all over the place, was as fit as a fiddle and loving being exceptionally fit. then for the umpteenth time I got depressed and drank and ate pizza and got fat, very fat. I've lost 2.5 stone too in a few months. I was just pointing out that, although I admire the confidence, I think folds of fat falling over bikinis so they are almost invisible is not a pretty sight, you yourself say you'd never go without a t-shirt. I would love to even wear shorts and t-shirt as I've mentioned in another thread but cannot
Alison[/quote]I was not getting at you in any way at all and im sorry if thats how it came across , i have read some of your past problems and admire your openess and your tenacity in fighting your demons , 2.5 stone each we both deserve a pat on the back
mind you i fancy pizza now lol ! i was trying to point out that its easy to jump to conclusions just from looking at someone that the world might be a bit better with a bit more understanding
