Many people harbor a prejudice against obese people and don’t even realize it. Some fitness professionals subtly convey this unfairness when they teach, thinking it will motivate participants. If you think you can tell a person’s fitness level by his body size, then you are prejudging him. In fact, if a person is exercising regularly and eating a nutritious diet, then she is as fit as she can be at any given size. You have no way of knowing her lifestyle habits by looking at her.
Take Kate as an example. She was a chubby baby, a chunky kid and a plus-size teen. She lost and gained weight repeatedly, becoming larger each time, until at age 50 she was larger than ever. Several months ago, Kate found out she had high cholesterol and blood pressure and decided to focus on wellness and lifestyle changes. She ate healthfully and exercised daily. After 6 months of hard work, her efforts were paying off. Even though she had lost only 2 pounds, her cholesterol and blood pressure had returned to normal. “Thank goodness I was doing this for my health,” Kate said. “If I had been doing this to lose weight, I would have shot myself in the head!”
Next, Kate decided to add a gym group fitness class to her workout routine. At 5´4˝ and 280 pounds, she was the fattest person in class. No one knew from looking at her that she was highly active and a flaming success at restoring her health. As the instructor taught class, she commented that an exercise “will help you lose weight.” She said that another move “will help prevent those wiggly underarms.” By the end of the hour, Kate felt like a failure. She was the heaviest person there and had terminally wiggly underarms. She felt like the worst nightmare of everyone in the room. She never returned.
