Being 50 lbs lighter than I used to be, I feel that weight discrimination is a real issue. I don't know... I mean, I used to be called fat and ugly in school. But since my size is out of the way, I feel a whole lot more free. I feel like I can do so many things without being laughed at or being singled out for my weight. I talk about weight discrimination because I know first-hand what it is like to be fat and have experienced being thin. This can be used as evidence to show that there is indeed weight discrimination and that fat people aren't just "making it up". They say that obese and overweight children live lives comparable to the lives of cancer patients. I pretty much agree.
