LOL. Obesity and it's health issues are an issue in my whole family. Oddly enough when any of us get to a healthy weight, the older folks, wonder if we're sick.
I have one distant relative who has been most likely morbidly obese her whole life. A few years ago, she got down to around 220 and her mother thought she was dieing of anorexia. At 5'5" she was not dieing of anorexia.
She hadn't been that thin since like 7th grade, so I guess they just couldn't handle it, along with the fact that she was refusing to eat the unhealthy food.
Part of it for us is that if you stop by it's not polite to not offer you food and coffee, and it's not polite to not eat it. Most of those who have a problem with all of this, were born before, during or shortly after the depression, when food was a big deal, because there wasn't very much of it. To have a bit of meat on your bones meant you were doing well. At least that's how it is in my family.
Jeez I have old relation.

The human body is capable of amazing things! But without the mind, it is nothing. Get your mind in gear and the body will follow!
Be selfish about caring for yourself, you deserve it!
