I hate fat discrimination. It's wrong. But this is the world we live in. It's not going to change anytime soon, so get over it. Lose weight and you won't have to deal with it.

Thin people look better, and, like it or not, get paid more. If you're trim and healthy, you don't have an absentee problem. You might even be more productive on the job. All of this helps your earning potential. So if you want to live well and make your mortgage or rent payment, get those pounds off.

If my message seems too in-your-face, I apologize for the delivery—but not for the content. I'm speaking out because I care. I just want you to get healthy and enjoy your life to the fullest.
