See my landwhale before picture in my avatar? That picture was taken after a little 8 mile jaunt in the mountains up about 2700 feet of elevation and back down again. Something I could do at the drop of a hat without having to prep for it. Something I could do every day 3 or 4 times over if I wanted to (I know this because I've done it). Not everyone who is overweight is lazy.
Two girls, same mother and father, same meals made for them. Both run on the playground, climb trees, ride bikes, catch pollywogs in the creek. Should the one on the right hate herself for not looking like the one on the left? Is the one on the left more deserving of love and acceptance? Can the one on the right truly expect to ever diet herself down to the one on the left? Is it possible people come in different shapes and sizes?
