I've seen documentaries about several morbidly obese men who admit they demand the food they want and family members are afraid not to comply. I haven't seen this before where there were stores and restaurants providing him with tons of food. Ugh.
Its sad people let them selves get like that.
I saw that headline on Yahoo this morning and just could not click on it...too much for my brain to handle. :(
I have had that same thought about morbidly obese people who continue with the help of others. I wonder who is bringing him the chow? You can bet your bippie he would be on a healthy food plan if he depended on me and he could scream about all he wanted. What could he do? I saw one show where a man was feeding his morbidly obese wife with a spoon and she was just a pile on the couch and he kept feeding her with a spoon because he enjoyed it. Pretty sick. How do they use the toilet or bathe? - I don't want to think about it. Take care.
I remember watching an episode of The Biggest Loser some time ago when one of the contestants couldn't tie his shoelaces so his wife would tie them for him. If I was her I would have refused. Enablers have to realize that while it may not be their responsibility to help someone else lose weight, they don't have to be the ones who in some shape or form support the condition.
