From Linda Bacon, in an interview at Psych Central:
[E]xercising regularly will have a much more dramatic improvement on the health of a fat person than if he or she were to lose weight. Thin people don’t have longer life spans solely based on their weight. Fitness levels play a much larger role in health than weight. Put a focus on activities that you enjoy and just be open-minded around weight. The exercise itself has a dramatic effect on your health.
