    What obesity is good for

    Primal Fuel
    I say this knowing full well it's bitchy that I'm saying it.

    I was heading up the cafeteria at work for a sparkling water and started to think it would be fun to get a muffin or doughnut. Just a little treat. Yeah, I still want to lose another 15-20 pounds but I haven't had a non-compliant treat in sooo long.

    So I was at the point where I was telling myself I'd "just look" and see if they had anything interesting. Which you know is likely to lead to eating. Then I walked in the cafeteria and the first person I see there is huge. Brookhaven Obesity Clinic fat.

    I walked right past the pastries without a glance and got my water. Thirst was probably behind the craving anyway.

    That person never needs to know her fatness was my craving killer today, but at least the obesity epidemic serves a small, petty purpose for me.

    Obese persons as a cravings killer??? Hmmm, something tells me that a few of the very politically correct forum members will come and take you soon...

    I'm not proud of it. But at least I didn't eat that muffin.

    Don't forget that obese people are almost always doing weight bearing exercise when they walk, and so have less of a chance of suffering from osteoporosis in their old age.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I don't think this is bad. We are thankful for what we have been blessed with.

    You know, when I hear the overweight being told their weight is like walking around carrying a heavy backpack, I always think "but isn't that good exercise?"
