    I'm checking it out now. Thanks for the recommendation.

      If you've been thin all your life, you have no idea as to what it's like to binge. The out of control, self-loathing emotions that go with it, even while you're doing it. Some can hide it with bulimia because they puke up almost all of it right after. Assuming that thin people are awesome and fat people are dolts is as misguided as assuming that rich people are smart and poor people are stupid. Some rich people merely inherit, and some poor people choose not to play the game.

      I've been anywhere from 112 lbs to 263 lbs as an adult. I am always me. I'm not weak when I'm fat; I'm not a perfect human when I'm thin. I'm currently in the high 140s. What does that make me? Almost perfect? A little out of control? Someone who no longer gives a rat's ass? Judge me if you will when you see me on the street. But judging people by what they weigh rather than by the accomplishments of their lives is pretty damned feeble.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        I don't see an enemy here... I see someone who was engaging in a legitimate dialogue about the meaning of addiction.

        ETA: Though I'm sure an enemy will be conjured any moment since it has been called for...

          Hence the questions.


          I am often sarcastic. Judge me if you will.

              I've been bitten by multiple spiders, but they have not been of the radioactive variety. So far. The search continues...
