Obesity affects many aspects of a person's life. Socially, obese people are often having a difficult way of getting along with the society where majority of the people involve are physically fit and attractive. Most overweight persons are hesitant, shy and insecure because of the way they look compared to some physically attractive ones. So they prefer to hang out with people who also look and feel the same as they do. On television, obese people are considered funny and the center of bullying which make it possible in reality. Because of these social experiences, their mental and emotional aspects are also affected. This results to negative thoughts, feedbacks, low self-esteem, sadness and failure to do things with courage and passion.
Physically, obese people have the greatest risk of developing illnesses associated with obesity. Weight related diseases are often experienced, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems and many more. All of these disease easily develops, which makes it a cause of other deeper health issues. Being fat is not considered being healthy as what others may think. Being overweight is believed to be healthier than underweight persons but it's not. Both are considered to be detrimental to the health and wellness of a person.

Didn't you just post this a week ago. I seriously doubt if anyone that is obese or overweight finds this helpful, much less to repeat it weekly. And not everyone that is overweight or obese is socially awkward.

Just my opinion.

Being told the obvious can be construed as hurtful in itself...

Being told, repeatedly, brings into question the messenger's agenda...
