When I see a fat man struggling with all his might to climb a hill on a bike, an overweight woman beet red in the face as she jogs in obvious pain on a hot day, or a fat couple willing to be seen in a gym full of young hard bodies, I don’t sneer. I feel nothing but empathy. I cheer them on. Because not long ago, I was that guy.
We can all be better. Instead of showing scorn to the fat man or woman, cheer them on. Show them support. If they can do it, we all can.
