To Anonymous

An anonymous coward left this comment on a post of mine:

So, those of us that pay taxes and health insurance get to pay for BOTH of your weight loss surgeries.....pathetic, just pathetic. Get some backbone, some will power and get off your ass and lose the weight yourself, and yes, it IS that easy..

Allow me to take a few minutes to respond...

First of all, you are the biggest coward I've ever encountered for writing something like that and now allowing me the opportunity to respond to you directly. It shows exactly the kind of person you are...

Secondly, we are paying CASH for our surgeries - so health insurance isn't covering a dime of our medical expenses. For the record, tax dollars wouldn't cover it either - apparently you are not very knowledgeable of the way that tax dollars are spent. So, no - you won't be effected by us using your tax dollars.

Thirdly, it isn't that simple - but no one would expect you to understand that with your small minded lack of anything helpful to contribute to society anyway. You obviously don't understand the problem of obesity in America - nor do you have the education needed to understand why surgery works and just "getting off your ass" doesn't work.

The beautiful thing about losing weight is that I have become a better person and have done something about my life and issues... you clearly have not. You will always be the same hateful, ugly, despicable person that would leave such a hateful message for someone that would never dream of doing that to anyone. You, will get yours in the end - because everyone gets what they deserve and reaps what they sow...

People that live in glass houses... shouldn't cast stones. I'm sure that if you needed a lung transplant because you've smoked for 30 years... you'd expect me to pay for it... or if you have to have treatment for drug or alcohol addiction - you'd expect me to pay for that too. Since I'm asking no one to pay for anything to cover my treatment - who exactly is the bigger burden on society? Yeah - that would be you...

I will pray for you, because clearly you need some time alone with the Holy Spirit.
