First of all I AM NOT OVERWEIGHT. I just decided to post this. My best friend who is overweight says it is not easy to lose weight when you don't have motivation. Like people keep talking shit about overweight people, then he won't have motivation to even try to lose weight, since he feels like not even trying cause his self esteem that is low. From time to time I see posts when a guy that is overweight is complaining that he can't get wonen and people post''just lose weight.'' Geez. Overweight women get sympathy though. Double standard.
Why do many people tell overweight people''just lose weight'' like it is such an easy thing to do?

It can work the other way too though. Some people can be put down so much that they actually realise the folly of their ways and really do something about it. Or go on an enraged murdering spree, one of the two.
Life if full of those kinds of double standards though, you're right.
I have my own controversial views on what should be done about obesity though.0
I think in fairness from what I see most people would talk about exercise and diet with a person who wrote a post about losing weight regardless of gender.0
I agree. I am skinny - always have been. I eat a terrible diet - my innards must hate me. But still I don't put on weight.
I'm just extremely lucky, so I have sympathy for people who are not, and always have to watch what they eat and will build fat really easily.
Anyway, I believe eating disorders are to do with shame, so telling people to "just loose weight" is not really gonna help them deal with the emotions that drive them to binge in the first place.0
no they need to get started on their 2 yr journey or theyll die early and have a shitty life0
