You see plus size fashion models on the runway & in the magazines smiling (well not so much on the runway). What we don't see is their struggles behind the smiles. I know they are not trying to glamorize unhealthiness or obesity, but I can't help wondering if they suffer from the same side effects as other overweight people (myself included) suffer from. And if they do; is that the price they want to pay for being in the limelight?
It's not just the physical side effects of being obese like: high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, back pain, sleep apnea, etc. etc. But it's also the mental side effects being obese such as: low self-esteem, feeling unloved, being antisocial, self-sabotage, etc. etc. Now I won't knock anybody's career choices, but it would make a person (i.e plus size models) seem more personable if they were to share their REAL personal struggles and side effects of being obese & if they are trying to better their health.
I had a violent back spasm attack yesterday evening which kept me from work today & it got me to thinking that all the wonderful tasting food in the world is not worth the misery of being fat/obese!!
**my 2 cents**
