A thin line between fat and happy and thin and obsessive

So I know someone who is thin , too thin if you ask me . Everyone tells them how awesome they look. I know your thinking WHAT EVER Mindy ... I would give anything ..
But would you ? This person works out hours on end . Is obsessed with it , lives , breaths and eats it. Frankly , It comes to the point where it gets to be an obsession. Where they do and go to any lengths to maintain the look they have . Where every bite that is put into their mouths is monitored . Where every bite their children , spouses, people around them put into their mouths are monitored , thought about , even commented on . Food police at its worst. Im generalizing totally here. But its a type I have seen before.
So what's the lesser of 2 evils ? Being so thin you have to constantly work at it to stay that way ? Or TRYING To get that way to where you have to work hard to get that way ? It seems that no matter where we are we are never really happy !

  1. Don't forget that one person's obsession is another person's dedication.

    I figure, as long as they are healthy, and not pushing me to do what they do, then it's fine.
