FWIW, because I was feeling like a bit of a freak being the only one here that would take disability over obesity, I asked this question at another weight loss forum I participate at in their subforum for those that have or have had more than 100 lbs to lose:

If you had to choose between being permanently obese at your top weight or having some other permanent disability such as being deaf, dyslexia, diabetes, bad acne, heart disease, a leg amputated or being blind, which would you choose?

Completely unscientific, granted, but I got 4 people prefering obesity to disability, 3 that would take any of the listed disabilities over obesity, 3 people that would take any of the listed disabilities except blindness over obesity, 2 that would choose any of the listed disabilities except blindness & amputation over obesity and 3 that agreed to take a specific disability (1 dyslexia and 2 deafness) over obesity.
