  1. Very much needed topic! When feeling of discrimination because of your size and to seemingly think you are “lazy” is a touchy subject. It’s hard to prove unless taped or witnesses have the same perception and want to speak up. For me, I am the only oversized person in my office. Declined promotion, not given same opportunities. It really stinks!!
