First of all, I’m not fat. I’m heavier than I used to be and heavier than I like being (mostly because I ride and don’t want to inflict these extra pounds, which I blame on perimenopause, on the horses).

But I’m still not fat. At the same time, the vast, vast majority of people I know who are fat got that way from some kind of medical condition.
