OUR PERCEPTION OF PEOPLE THAT ARE OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE

Negative attitudes and comments toward people who are overweight and obese are pervasive in our society. We have no regard as to how this can and will affect that person. We assume they are lazy, lack will power, are unsuccessful and have no self-discipline, and are likely non-compliant with any weight-loss program. Weight discrimination continues to increase and seems to be an acceptable forum of bias. This discriminatory attitude has been displayed by employers, doctors, nurses, teachers, family members, “friends” and even children! Yes, obesity is a very real health issue and major concern for our society but degrading and discriminating against someone will not help them or “fix” them.
