To the person who wrote in condemning 'obese' people for costing you more in health insurance, shame on you. There is NO proof that being in a larger body causes poorer health. There IS a correlation between those two things and that is likely due to poor medical care and trauma caused by incessant weight stigma (by people like you). 95% of people who lose weight on diets gain it all back within 2-5 years. Intentional weight loss is not sustainable. So, keep your non-evidence based and oppressive opinions to yourself.
