Especially if you've been helped in the past and didn't care enough to try and KEEP the weight off. I dunno about over there, but here being obese is actually considered a disability, for which you can recieve disability payments and a handicapped parking sticker. This might upset some people, but my personal opinion (which is no way affiliated with the opinion of this website ) is that the absolute LAST thing these people need is the closest parking spot or to be able to sit at home all day and do nothing but eat MORE. Excercise and proper diet (and perhaps psychological counselling) will solve this particular "disability," not enabling them.
DISCLAIMER: Before anyone gets mad, I do have members of my family who are classified as "morbidly obese," and have seen the numerous health problems it causes. Yes it is terrible, but not a problem that can be solved by paying someone to stay home and giving them parking spots which could be given to people who are wheelchair bound NOT of their own choosing. I had sympathy for those family members for a while, but they just refuse to help themselves, and this is paramount in overcoming ANY disability, not just obesity.
