Obesity is an illness. You should seek treatment. That you don't - that is sad. When people are ill and refuse to admit it - that is sad. When your freedom of choice is so self destructive - that is sad. When Phillip Seymour Hoffman died with a needle in his arm, because addiction is a disease too, - that is sad. Don't boast about your 'freedom' to be ill if you want to. That is very sad. When someone has the flu, or cancer, or an open wound, they need to seek treatment. So should the obese. Sorry if I sound judgmental, I don't see it that way. Not seeking needed medical treatment is sad. Think about that.
@Rickapolis, what is "very sad"? If you are sitting in judgment of us then feel free to keep it to yourself.
Those of us who are obese are exercising our freedom of choice. If being obese made us sad enough we would do something about it. Until that day comes we will continue to be obese. However, feel free to be very sad about the things in your own life. You can be sure that I won't be "very sad" for you.
