Inspired by this thread. I mean, you are gaining weight, say, but at some point don’t people realize that enough is enough? Maybe some don’t care about their appearance, or even their health, but you see these people who can barely walk! I am specifically referring to those folks you see scooting around in the powerchairs, or using the electric shopping carts in the supermarket.
I can see someone saying “I don’t care if I am unattractive and have to wash myself with a rag on a stick” or “yeah I’ll have a heart attack someday but I don’t worry about that eventuality” but how the hell can you keep on eating to the point where you can’t even walk around a damn store?
I was up to about 220 (I am 5’ 10") and at the age of 49 I realized I had to turn it around like NOW or it would be too late for me, so I bought a nice road bike and cut back on the beer and Big Macs and started cooking my own stuff. I was feeling tired all the time, my BP was scary, and I could just see where it was all going to end up. I like riding, and now when I go to Mickey D’s, the food tastes far too salty. I feel loads better and have dropped 25 pounds already. It wasn’t really even that hard.
So how do people end up like this? Life has so many pleasures, does eating have to be the be all and end all for some people?
