This is a very wise statement.  NO, fat is NOT the worst thing you can be.  Some of the most caring, selfless, generous, kind, intelligent, motivated, honest, hard working people that I know are not fit, but they are amazing!  And they inspire me every day in ways that go beyond their physical shape.  Not to be cheesy, but they make me what to be a better person...in my heart and soul...deep down underneath all the squishiness on the outside!
