I also don't believe that obesity is a genetic disorder either. My dad was 119 LBS when he married my mom, I graduated high school well over 300 LBS. I have been big my whole life. My dad is now big. Half my family is little tooth picks. Saying that you are over weight because of your genes is like some one from a poor upbringing saying they have no choice but to follow that path. It is your choice if you are fat and obese.
I was sick of being fat, so I am doing something about it. What are you doing?
