one of my fears

Ever since going on a cruise with my parents, one of my great fears has been:

obesity.

Really. On this cruise there were many obese individuals, and it scared and depressed me. Since that point, I have been afraid to be seriously obese. I am usually not super overweight, although I have been closer to that end of the scale rather than the other most of my life.

This is also why pregnancy is stressful for me—to be gaining weight pretty much constantly even though I am exercising is frustrating, despite knowing why and that it must happen.

I hate how one becomes obese—eating and not exercising—because I enjoy both of those things. I also really don't like seeing obesity stereotypes—mainly (1) obese people in a drive-thru of a fast food restaurant AND (2) obese people eating fast food in general. It makes me so sad.

Don't get me wrong, I do not have anything against people who are obese, just the idea of obesity in general.
