Have you seen this video, or the image they're talking about?
You know what? I'm ok with it.
I screw around on Facebook - I have my personal account, my blog's page, and I do content creation for a friend's page as well.
My wife and I like to play online games together. We spend maybe 4-5 hours a week playing MMOs.
I take my dog to the dog park, and sit around and chat with other dog owners for an hour at a time. That could be jogging/biking with my dog, or I could chase her around. Instead, we sit and gab.
And, of course, my life on the road as a salesman. I don't have to hit the drive-thru as often as I do, but it's quick and convenient for me. If I slowed down and made better options, I wouldn't be in the predicament I am.
My wife and I are considering having a baby. Her first, my third. If she needs mommy time to work out, take a walk, etc, I'm going to give it to her.
I know how to cook. If she's tired, I'll make dinner. We don't have to rely on a fast-food crutch.
My favorite part of the video above? Everyone starts making excuses about this lady's 'advantages' except for Matt Lauer. I can point out the gender lines that coincide with the argument, but I think that would be painting with some broad brush-strokes.
I'm fat. I like her message. It made me think for a second, and reflect on my decisions. In that aspect, it worked. Am I shamed? Is she a bully? No.
What IS my excuse?
And, if you're overweight and in a position to remedy that, what is YOUR excuse?
