    People probably think that about a lot of people on here 'How did he/she let themselves get like that'

    Id hope people on here would be slightly more understanding

    I'd have to agree, I don't think it's a case of "letting yourself get like that", it is an illness and this man deserves our sympathy not our scorn.

    I think it's the fact that he put himself through painful surgery to remove large amounts of the fat (160kg) but carried on the same way he was before. He had the opertunity to turn his life around then but chose not to, I just don't understand that. If I'd had to put up with the pain of healing after that I would never want to have to be in the situation where I would have to go through it again.

    I'm sure thai chilli is just trying to express that she cannot comprehend the individual's life. While it might be worth pointing out the similarities in our situations it would be nice to remember that thai chilli is an individual with feelings too and probably didn't realise quite how she was coming across.

    Rather than attacking her judgement perhaps we could educate and open the mind to a different way of looking at it.

    I'll give him one thing...I would love to lose weight at the rate he is!
    I personally think he has got real determination to lose the amount he has to purely by diet!:wow:

    incredible that he can find something positive when he must at times feel terrible. it is beyond my comprehension. It was enough coping with my weight and the psych issues that come with it. Good on him

    Ummmm Not a great response..... I am sure people have thought that about all of us at one time or another... Perhaps we should all look at this man as a warning to what damage is possible to do to our own bodies, and feel privilledged that he has alowed people an insight into his life, which I am sure is incredibly difficult and painful. I want to weep for him not moke him.
