I heard about Donna Simpson; I thought from the start that her fiance was a "feeder"; a guy who got turned on by feeding his other half large amounts of food. I thought she was being incredibly selfish, especially since she had kids; what if she'd had a heart attack and left them alone?
Also, while it's fine to love yourself if you're only a little overweight, or have wobbly bits, if you are unable to climb the stairs without practically having a seizure at the top, or eat a meal that could safely feed a family of four, then you are not healthy and should quit kidding yourself.
I also don't think that these people should ever get a free gastric band/bypass on the NHS; they should instead either pay for it themselves (if they cut down on their food bill, they should be able to afford it) or lose weight the old fashioned way; ie, by taking their head out of the trough and exercising.
I'm currently on a healthy eating kick and walking loads cuz I want to lose my tummy and tone up a bit. I lost nearly two stone just by cutting out unhealthy snacks, not eating between meals and walking everywhere; it's not hard, and it's certainly not expensive. In fact, I've saved money by cutting back on food and walking is free.
