Sometimes its how expansive your thought process is and not limited to one track thinking.

This morning on the news, they expanded on their limitations of members: To combat obesity or ones severely overweight, you have to address them directly and mingle among them. While this may hit our bottom line, our focus is to provide services to those most in need, and the ones in which WANT to lose weight, and are at a higher health risk level. Our intent is not discriminate against those fit, but rather getting the obese or severely overweight into this same type of position of those that are fit. Our focus of attention is more linear as compared to what is traditionally the norm in the industry. In case you missed one of the points: As you can see we are pushing persons to get fit, and it does not make sense that we are against--the ones already fit. We are no different than others who specialize in a certain business or medical area.

They did not specify what happens when a formerly obese person, becomes fit. Which would be a valid question.

The above is the main theme of their statement. If this is true, then personally, I do not have any problem with their----intent, and they reserve the right to choose which market to capture and focus their attention on, and this (currently) does not break any discrimination laws.
