Obesity can be attributed to a variety of reasons. Genes, poor diet habits and lack of exercising. Some people are contented and confident being bigger and that's fine as long as healthwise, they are good. For those who are unfortunately non-ideal in terms of weight, but don't do anything about it and just moan and wallow in self-pity, I don't really empathise because I believe that you can do something about it. At least try. Try hard and you will see results.
Get off your butt and MOVE.
This article is pretty inspiring. Few Asians come this close of obesity.. we are luckier with 'smaller' Asian genes. There are of course the exceptions. What these people have done is inspiring. They weren't on a reality show or so and just won the battle with sheer determination, discipline and look at the results! OMG. They all look amazing.
I don't know about you, but I'm inspired! Not to lose weight, but to work at achieving my goals!
