I have decided to add my thoughts to this topic as it is something which I think about a lot, probably too much!
I am not obese, nowhere near it in fact. I am small 5'4" and although I don't want to say my weight I am a size 8-10 top and 10-12 bottom.
I go to the gym a few times a week so am not flabby, I do carry a little weight around my stomach, but think I'm fairly average.
Despite all this I seem to be called 'fat pig' and such things on a regular basis, always by males I must add. This frustrates as I wish it didn't hurt but it does. (Should state here, it's never people I know, just random guys on nights out or in the street or whatever, young guys these days seem to think anything over a size 6 is fat!)
I love my food and really struggle on a daily basis to keep my weight under control, so I feel I can really empathise with overweight people.
I am rambling a little here I think, so to clarify I think the word obese is thrown about too much these days. Having been labelled a 'big-boned' (I heard fat) child myself I am all too aware of the issues with self confidence that this has left me with, and I think parents and doctors etc nee to be very careful when dealing with childhood obesity.
I could write an essay on this topic, but I hope you have enjoyed reading my short review.
