103. I used to be thin

to the point they called me Twig in the 60s and accused me of vacationing in concentration camps or in whatever African country was experiencing famine, that skinny.

When I turned 50, in a period of 3 months, I put on 40 pounds without changing my diet (in the beginning, soon went to one meal a day) or exercise (RN who ran it off 12 hours at a time).

Going through a drastic change like that is awful. Having punks make bad jokes or earnest bigots who tell you you're fat for your own good just made it worse and worse.

I have no idea what put all the fat on me but it's not poor diet or lack of exercise.

My body type is no one's business but mine. The only reason Christie's comes under comment is that morbidly obese people do tend to die a lot sooner than people who are merely overweight and this is not desirable for a presidential candidate.

Other than that, it's not your bloody business whether a person is underweight, overweight, tall, short, white, black, or green with purple spots. If you must criticize, criticize something the person can work on, like anger management for Christie or reading the NT instead of Leviticus for fundies.
