Perhaps Ms. Hage should not be in the business of lulling “plus size” individuals into a complete sense of well-being regarding their weight. The model is at risk for:
- Adult-onset diabetes
- Cardiac disease
- Joint degeneration
While believing that we should not be unkind toward any individual, it is also distinctly kind that the morbidly obese (BMI greater than 50) and super obese (BMI greater than sixty) be made to understand the nature of eating indulgences as a self-harm behavior.
A posture as a victim can mask honest assessment and the need for a responsible attempt to combine moderate daily exercise and dietary portion control. There is a small demographic of individuals who struggle with weight based on endocrine imbalances. But for the majority, obesity is related to lifestyle choices.
Yes. Be kind toward all. There is no need to judge based on size. But do remember the following: The body of the individual makes and calculates those judgments in continuous manner and with various means of biological sensors and adjustments throughout a lifetime. Our own frame acts as a witness against us when entering the medical realm of co-morbidities.
