After a lifetime of struggling with my weight, I recently had weight loss surgery. In this post I reflect on the way that overweight and obese people are treated, ways that I have been teased and taunted, and personal successes I've had despite difficult odds. The post ends with a charge to be kind to others, no matter the reason, and to "be sure to keep your words soft and tender, for tomorrow you may have to eat them."
