I've seen several episodes now and I've developed a strong reaction against fat people like I never have. Now, keep in mind that I've never had anything against obesity, never made fun of people, and never treated them with any less respect.
But I'm watching these 300 lb. people putting themselves through this program of exercise and diet, and when they lose a lot of weight they always say how they have a 'new lease' on life and usually have a good cry.
It kind of angers me that they let themselves go that way. People all over the world are starving, now more than ever, and even though it's no one's fault they are starving, the audacity of these people to eat and eat and now cry about it really makes me mad.
I understand that sometimes there are medical reasons, but many of these people are just lazy and lack self control. And now they're being rewarded for it in addition to being in a position to win $250,000.
These people are being hailed as 'heroes' and 'inspiration'. I don't know how I feel about it. But my personal opinion of fat people have changed.
