Why should I lose weight?

Why should I lose weight, its really for the approval of others. I people weren't the way they were then there would be no need. Sure I can be healthy but people assume that I'm lazy I exercise eat healthy enough to maintain my weight not loss or gain. really people need to accept that not all fat people are fat because they lay in bed all day and eat.

It's isn't fair but I guess that's how the world is
