Fat is fat. Obese is obese. When you ship a package by air, the charge is determined by the weight. Someone I worked with who was obese complained that his size in a piece of clothing was more expensive than a regular size. I said why not, it takes more fabric to make larger sizes and material costs money.
There are no good reasons to stay obese, diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure,etc are due to many times obesity. We live in a world where what is wrong is made to appear right.
Fat is unhealthy, unattractive,and results in higher medical costs. So why stay that way, because its easy and involves no effort.
