You do not know the struggle, until you have faced the prejudice and ridicule for being, for lack of a better blunt word, FAT. Like being forced to pay for two seats in a bus, or a plane.or at a restaurant… I mean it is tough enough to have to breathe like you have just climbed Mount Everest every time you try to walk and talk, but to pay for being just a little heftier than everyone else? That is outright unacceptable.
It is one thing to have some ‘fattitude’ towards adults that are considered fat, but to relay the same to kids and teens? That is the low-blowing in its lowest form. Most people just tend to think that kids who are slightly bigger just lie around all day, lazying around and filling themselves up with potato chips or Oreos, and have got nothing else of importance, going on in their lives.And, calling it childhood obesity is just a way of sugar-coating it. It doesn’t make it any less annoying or hurting. Did you know that in 2013 a certain part of the Boy Scouts of America banned kids that had a BMI of above 40 from being part of most of the scouting activities while they were out hiking? What, you don’t believe me? Well, read about it here.
Coca-Cola believes that irregardless of your weight, you have a billion reasons to believe in yourself, and believe that you can do literally anything you set your mind to do.
You wanna be an athlete? Go right ahead! Wanna be the next big thing in the music world? Don’t let annoying idiots tell you that you cannot. Wanna be an actor/actress? Yes you can! It does not matter what other people think about you or what they say. Just take a hint from this amazing person.
