Psychologists and the Obese


I’m confused. I just read about someone who has completed a BA degree AND a MA degree in health psychology so they can “help out all the obese people in the world”.

Why go to all that effort when you can just turn to many of them and say “if you wanna be obese, that’s okay because it’s your decision about what to do with your body” ? Not every person who is obese is hatin’ on it.

Yeah. My psychologist recently told me, my overweight is the one thing she can’t help me with. It’s not her expertise as a psychologist. The only thing she can help me to do is help me accept my body and feel as good as possible in it. I hope that’s what that person means…
