Fat in a thin world
This week in class we had a woman come and speak about her experience being overweight in a society that puts such emphasis on how we look and how skinny we are. I first think it was very brave of her to speak in public about her experience and struggles. I truly believe that it is very difficult for many overweight people to lose weight. Many aren't educated about nutrition and helpful workouts that will show them results. And many aren't patient enough to stick with something when they don't see results right away. I think, after hearing her speak, that if a person has tried every other way to get healthy and still can't seem to achieve their goals then weightloss surgery may be something they could consider.
