    Wow, you have an obese person on a weight loss show (yes, she’s in the obese range) but she’s not obese enough so everyone gets all huffy about how it sends the wrong message. You know what sends the wrong message? Telling Australia that an obese person is normal and doesn’t need to lose weight. She is unhealthy, like 2 out of 3 Australians who are overweight or obese. I get it, for a lot of people this will be confronting, but if we can’t talk about someone’s health because it might make people feel bad about themselves then we’re seriously sticking our heads in the sand. It’s like not talking about diabetes because it might upset someone that they have an issue with their health that it’d be a good idea to address.

      I’m sorry but I think you are missing the point entirely. A 78kg woman is indeed overweight – she even fits that category in the BMI scale (it’s got its limitations but it’s a good general indicator of health and fitness). Medically she has an increased risk of a lot of serious health effects, the most notably being heart disease, and we’re not just skirting around the facts. It is definitely a good idea to bring this to the forefront, since Australians do seem to be getting bigger and seemingly more comfortable with it too. What a biased article though, I love this level of journalism. Does deputy editor mean 18 year old intern?
