Well, in the first place, just like average people – some fatties do exercise, and some don’t. And some fatties want to exercise, and don’t. Why? Well, let me tell you…
Face it, society does not make it easy (or pleasant) for fatties to exercise.
Health/fitness clubs are often not fat friendly. The staff may not know how to adjust routines to accommodate the fat body. Fat folks are often exposed to rude behavior by staff and/or other members.
The fatty who just wants to take a walk or bike ride, must deal with the oh-so-not-witty comments of passers-by.
Proper exercise-friendly clothing is often not available in our size. When it is, it is often prohibitively expensive.
Also we have had a lifetime of having exercise shoved down our throats – for our own “good”. For the most part, exercise has been forced on us like a punishment, instead of as something fun.
So no wonder a lot of us (me included) hate exercise.
And for all those folks out there who are so concerned about our “health”, think about that the next time you’re somewhere and see a fat person dancing, or at the beach, or just out getting some movement – think about how much it takes for a fat person just to put themselves out there in the first place.
