“Healthy At Every Size (HAES) is a philosophy that encourages the adoption of certain lifestyle behaviors to improve health without actually losing any weight.”
I am a large man, if I want to describe myself charitably. I’m a big fat guy if I want to be realistic. While I understand that belittling someone or making them feel bad about how they look is not healthy or productive neither is advancing the idea that being obese is something you should give up on trying change.
I have had some remarkable weight loss success in the last year along with more than a few set backs, but I know that to stop fighting to lose weight is a choice to have a shorter life and a reduced quality of life. People who advance ideas to the contrary are contributing to a mentality that people are using to justify killing themselves.
Also, yes, Roz is dead now. He’s not coming back.
