So if I understand you correctly, I'm obese not because I have unhealthy eating habits, but rather because genetically I am predisposed to overeat especially fried and high calorie/fat foods. Got it.
Right. And it's not your fault, as your role model stocks her freezer with ice cream.
It is very important, whenever faced with a character limit, to carefully plan what you want to write, lest you be cut o

Point is, being overweight is mostly a function of unhealthy eating habits. Why one has those habits or whether someone has a bigger challenge than others doesn't change that.

You may be overweight because you snack on fries and high calorie/fat food. Does not mean everyone who is overweight has your eating habits. There are many people who are overweight due to having children, genetic disposition or as a side effect from meds,  among other reasons.  It also doesn't mean that people who are overweight are not frustrated with their weight and are trying to shed the excess weight.  Oh, and it also doesn't mean that skinny people eat healthier. We all know those who snack on junk all day and it has no effect on them.

All is good BH. (The few around here who know me, I'm actually very skinny.... And I have terrible eating habits )
Was just saying IMHO, that it's not fair to put smokers and obese people in the same category, as many of them have it beyond their control, and it's not fair to judge them. Not that we should necessarily judge smokers either.....

Gained 7-10 lbs. Barely any exercise, eating more, and way more alcohol.

I'm sorry, but going on the scale is only mildly essential, and is in phase 4 of my reopening plan. Get back to me then.

Roughly the same weight. I did gain a few pounds but lost it when I started watching how much I was eating out of boredom (and only ate healthy for a week when I realized what was happening).
I'm not who you think I am.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Mostly healthy and unprocessed food
Tracking calories and macros
Exercising every day
Major dental work over a few weeks that limited me to soft foods only
