There is chunky. Then there is overweight. Then there is obese. THEN there is morbidly obese. That’s what he wrote down…morbidly obese. The only thing left after that is knock-out-the-wall-because-you-can’t-fit-through-the-door-anymore obese. I realize that he was speaking clinically but it still took me off guard.
I found this on Dictionary.com:
1. suggesting an unhealthy mental state or attitude; unwholesomely gloomy, sensitive, extreme, etc.: a morbid interest in death.
2. affected by, caused by, causing, or characteristic of disease.
3. pertaining to diseased parts: morbid anatomy.
4. gruesome; grisly.
I don’t want anything about me to be associated with the word morbid. I don’t want to have diseased parts and I definitely don’t want to be considered gruesome or grisly. I want to be healthy and whatever the opposite of gruesome is.
Yet another reason to keep it moving. Soon, I hope to be downgraded to just regular old obese. Then we’ll go from there.
