I have started this blog because of something that is making me really mad. OK, I know that there are many things to be angry about – like the Orlando shooting, a kid taken by an alligator… but this is something that could be very easily-remedied.

I happen to know of several situations where someone appeared to be obese, but in the end it was found that the person was suffering from a disease that made them appear to be fat. In the end, this person didn’t have fat on their body even they were overweight and appeared to have fat and cellulite.

Because of seeing this situation 20/20, I am realizing that many people must be suffering from the same dilemma.

We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic, but are we really sure of why people are so big?

In this blog, I’m going to present a large amount of information as to the “why” of obesity. If you think you know everything and that fat people are always to blame for their appearance, don’t read any further, but if you want to delve more deeply into the problem, read my upcoming posts.

If you’re wondering about my medical credentials, don’t look any further. I don’t have any. But I just recently found out that I had a thyroid problem that has been making me fat for about 15 years and I have a friend who suffered through bariatric surgery only to find out she wasn’t fat at all, instead she has Lipedema.

Feel free to comment. I love this topic and want to know more.
