Yes – another doctor singing the praises of my healthy heart. Apparently guys as fat as me are ticking time bombs. The truth is – all of us live on numbered days….some of us just count faster than others.
I’m glad my heart – and pretty much the rest of me – is hanging in there exceptionally well, especially considering the abuse I’ve put it through in the last 20 years. (But I mean, c’mon, if ice cream and pizza are considered abuse – please don’t file a report!)
Anyway…I’m losing control of this post. My intent is: even doctors make some assumptions (granted, with medical evidence backing them, but still) about what fat people can do. News flash – many of us can do whatever we want.
We might be slower at it than some. We might not be as good at it as others. But we aren’t lazy, sloppy, clumsy, or deficient. And seemingly, some of us aren’t even afflicted with heart disease…yet. My goal is to keep it that way.
