Very brave. I wonder how long it will be until people stop looking at obese people with disdain?

Honestly, even though I am not thin, I have looked at someone heavier than me and wondered how they could let themselves get that way. I’m not proud of it at all, but I do it.

We are being honest here, aren’t we? I think we all need to be a little more honest about even the nasty parts of ourselves (I am trying).

I think you tackled this subject with dignity and class, as always. I think that with the platform that you have, Shannon, you could really make a difference.

Great job on this piece!
