“I realized that I was no longer a healthy fat person”.
Please, please realize this: there is NO such thing! Obesity IS a health condition. All health care practitioners use a diagnosis coding system known as ICD-10. It stands for the INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASE. A couple years ago the 10th edition was developed. This coding is the system ALL health care practitioners (and insurance companies) use to communicate in the same language about DISEASE and health conditions.
