The post reminds me of the Black Mirror episode 'Fifteen Million Merits' where everyone has to use exercise bikes daily to power the world and earns currency based on how much they run. Obese/fat people are servants and ridiculed on degrading game shows for the fit people to watch while they cycle. The only way to escape is to spend 15 million merits on a ticket for an X Factor style audition.

I let myself go. I eat what I want and it's wonderful.

Except for the heath issues that are effecting me, and the danger of diabetes. My doctor is really pushing me to do something about it. I'm only getting older, and it will get worst, if I don't do anything about it.

I just eat whatever I like. I am overweight but really I'm not morbidly obese or anything and I would like to enjoy life. I have so many negative things that I don't really need another and I hate exercise. Sometimes though I do try and exercise and watch what I eat but then I just get tired and bored and I actually end up forgetting that I was even doing it. Maybe at some point I will be able to get myself to exercise routinely but with as much as I hate it I doubt it will happen.

I used to be a "stick" as some say when I was a child. Sadly over exercising (there is such a thing) caused several issues that finally rendered me unable to do any exercise other than swim and cycle and even they were hard to do I now consider myself as fat and whilst I dislike being this way I am not able to exercise as I wish and healthy eating is actually really expensive.

If only veggies etc were as cheap as value products from a store, then it's them i'd be eating, but alas processed tinned junk is cheaper and about all I can afford being unable to do much

I do watch what I eat, but only to a certain extent. I am Italian so I grew up used to a Mediterranean diet, which represents my normal, everyday diet. However, I love every kind of food as long as it is quality food and prepared with care, I am never cheap when it comes to food. I am extremely skinny and I exercise moderately, just to keep in shape and feel energetic. I can say that I should consider myself lucky for being the way I am...

Now that I recently moved to the USA, I am having a lot of issues with the food, and I have to buy most things online or at shops with imported goods... For me, everything here is served in portions impossible to finish in one sitting. Portions sold for 1 person for 1 meal, usually last me at least two meals and sometimes even three. I can quite understand why I see so many obese people around, it was a shock when I first arrived here... Especially seeing obese elderly people at McDonalds or other fast food restaurants...

Sorry, but I laugh at young people (in their late teens/early 20s) saying their high metabolism keeps them thin, as they are usually the quickest to fatten up as soon as they start aging and they do not adapt their eating habits to their new slower metabolism. Usually getting a job also reduces the time they spend exercising and... XD (Seen tons of my friends turn from muscular, fit guys into chubby, bloated up men)

So true. There are actually healthier foods that I really enjoy that I could alter my poor diet with but I just never have the money for it. Unfortunately about 70-80% of my meals are fast food simply because it is fast and cheap. My awkward schedule doesn't make it any easier either.

Eat whatever you want. Forget other people who criticize.

I'm not fat, but I have noticed I've gained a pound or two. I want to lose it.

I just want to be a healthy weight for my height.

I'm fat and I tend to eat whatever I want. I wish I was born lucky enough to eat all the healthy and unhealthy food I want without gaining weigh. Too bad I wasn't born that lucky. People like me gotta work really hard to get to our ideal weight AND maintain it. One slip up and you'll go back to the size you were before thus having to endure hell again.

Losing weight is easy but trying not to gain all that weight back is not.

I'm not too concerned, so long as neither are physically hindering. I find that fitness is more important than pounds.

I watch what I eat now more than I did when I was younger since I've noticed the pounds start to come on a bit easier than before... I also exercise more.
Not only does exercise help with my weight it also improves my mood and helps with depression. I love it.
Eating healthy can be expensive but I've done ok so far. Working at a grocery store has me very active so not only do I have access to all kinds of food Im also getting the general exercise I need though out my day. (constant walking and heavy lifting)
At around 105-112 I'd say Im doing good.
