I used to be obese (BMI) and lost about 16kg. For the first time in my life, I’m in the healthy BMI range.
I always knew being fat is unhealthy and my joints hurt before I even reach my 30s, but I never actively say being fat is bad.
Losing all those weight wasn’t an easy journey. I got medical help to start my weight loss (that cost a fair bit). Even with the medication help, I had to do tons of research and change my view on foods and dieting.
It was rough, but to me, it was worth it.
Here’s the thing, now that I’m no longer obese. I’m finding myself getting irritated and frustrated at my fat friend’s.
All their reasoning for not being able to lose weight sound like an excuse to me now. But I used to be fat, so I knew my honest opinion would just hurt their feeling. So I just kept it bottling up.
What makes this whole situation way worse is, because I got medical help to lose weight, some of my friends are dismissing my effort.
They said they can lose all this weight if they get the same help as me. I feel like my friends can access the same resource as me and can change.
I just really hate all the excuses they give me about not changing. At this point, I wish they just say straight out, ye I’m fat, I can’t be bothered doing anything about it.
(I think because I’m no longer fat, every time I meet my friends, they try to justify why they are fat because I never initiate the topic)
