Oh my god, YES! And can I add to that: You're not the first ones to be hot and have all the sex, not the first ones with slang, or edgy fashion and music. Not the first ones to be passionate about a political cause or candidate. Not the first to be rich or poor or unemployed or overworked. All that shit is transitory and it's all been done before by olds like me. Your moment of peak freshness will go and come sooner than you imagine. Then you'll be invisible and irrelevant too.

@1 After five years living on the Oly Pen, I couldn't wait to get back to civilization and away from all the meth heads and low achievers. Puget Sound works as a buffer both ways.

Daydreaming of the perfect indoor swimming pool is my favorite winter pass time.

Kathleen R: Hiding in bed all winter long eating pizza and cookies is one of the best things about living in Seattle. Has no one introduced you to hot alcoholic drinks?

Beautiful and inspiring. From now on, I will only think kind thoughts about the pedestrian souls I spy seemingly lost in the world of their earbuds.
Let's see if Guterson can leave the same kind of imprint on Federal Way.

Damn you guys, I'm pretty nice too. No one ever offered me brownies.

Yes, I can read. (lame assumption #1)

"he or she said there are SOME who can't control their weight." (opposite of OP's point)

I have ALSO lost 50 pounds too. Yes, it was hard. (lame assumption #2 that I'm just an excuse making fatty)

Your "scientific fact" example of rate of weight loss disregards individual metabolism (as well as fat loss vs. muscle loss and muscle gain) You're just plain wrong about that. It's nowhere near that simple. Look up the research.

Actual scientific knowledge about the very real challenges of weight loss, both physiologic and psychological is easily obtainable for free on the internet and yet you have chosen not to seek it out.

I think everyone who is overweight would be healthier if they lost the excess weight. However, since I'm not their doctor, I'm not going to assume I know what caused the extra weight or what they need to do to lose it. Furthermore, I don't consider it any of my business.

In fact I don't waste much of my time judging people on that weight, or on physical appearance, because I find it doesn't have any bearing on the quality of a person.

Like almost everyone, I have a number of weakness and shortcomings that I need to work on. I find that focusing my attention on self-improvement is far more productive than thinking about other people's imperfections.
