I don't snore any more (the wife loves that). My body doesn't hurt. I have more energy because I sleep better. The biggest one is the way people act and talk around me. 'Oh gosh I'm so fat' comments are common in small talk and I never really realized it before. It's kind of sad but I really feel more respected in many situations. The social currency of being not-fat is subtle but significant.
I will say that even though you're married, I bet women look at you in a different way. ^_~
It is a bit of a sad reality that skinnier people get more respect than heavier people, but it's the way of the world, I guess.
I am always glad when people make healthy choices, but to congratulate people on being thin is kinda fucked up, in my opinion.

I am always glad when people make healthy choices, but to congratulate people on being thin is kinda fucked up, in my opinion.It most certainly is fucked up.
How is it wrong to congratulate people for achieving something they've tried for?
Ok Nineless, think whatever you want.
You are not born with a weight of over 300 pounds.
Would you congratulate someone for fixing a problem they caused themselves that wouldn't have otherwise existed? No, you would reconsider firing him on the spot.
So are you saying I don't fight any genetics here?
I've had people working for me make some phenomenal mistakes that cost real world dollars. I've never let someone go for this. Interestingly, no one is born perfect and we all have opportunity for growth.
Skinny people with a healthy weight are paid better
they're treated better, and generally respected more than fat people.
I'll just say that there is a big hole in Nine's case. What about people who become obese because of a disease that makes them bedridden? You didn't mention that. And in that case, if you would still look down upon that person, you honestly should get shit-beaten. That would be like making fun of someone because they have a birth defect, and live with only one and a half arms, instead of two.
Oh, not some kind of makeover show then.
Did the fangirls go...................YAAAAAOOOOOIIIIIIII!
I'm back in Berlin! Yay!But fuck me, it's FUCK! Kenya to Berlin in 24 hours isn't doing my internal thermostat any good.
