If you watch supersize me, they say that only 2% of all obese/overweight cases have been caused from medical problems.
Yes, men suffer sooooo much from eating disorders. That`s why only 10% of anorexics are men, right? Because men care so much about being thin? Give me a break. -_-
First, the woman in the video is far from ugly, but I think her perspective on obesity is warped. It is NOT OK to promote such an unhealthy lifestyle. In the video, she seems intelligent, however her message leaves me to believe otherwise.
Unless a person has a medical condition, there`s no excuse for anyone to be obese. I don`t buy the, "It`s not my fault, it`s genetic," excuse. Control yourself!!
Just because you`ve deluded yourself into thinking that being obese is acceptable, think again. It`s obvious there are underlying problems that need to be addressed by a professional. I`m sorry, but that`s the truth.
PS. The reason why they don`t have triple X (XXX - I don`t even know what it looks like) sizes in H&M, Guess, etc. is because those clothes aren`t meant to be worn by OBESE people. Maybe, and it`s just a hunch, the designers have a soul and realize the public doesn`t want to see their cute sundress on a fat person. I certai
Plus, as a person who was VERY large once (not that I`m small now) the whole clothes thing is annoying. The average size chick is a size 12, but you go into the fine clothing retailers and often times they sell very small sizes and nothing in the larger numbers. Fat people clothes are generally hideous (minus torrid). It`s irritating.
Plus, this whole, fat is unhealthy. Even at my heaviest, all my of #`s have been perfect. Blood pressure, blood counts, cholesterol, etc. Yes, being obese can be bad for your health, but just because you are fat doesn`t mean you are unhealthy.
I`m a 14 year old girl, and 190lbsI`m also 6 feet tall, and slightly overweight, not obese.
Most of the people I meet don`t understand that I`m not going to weigh 130lbs. So, "how much do you weigh" has become my most dreaded question.
but why be so hateful to the people who are healthy and "fat"?
there are women who are "fat" but are very attractive.
so why put out the ultimatum that "all fat people are ugly"?
that ultimatum that you put out there is what is making some of us say that you are close-minded.
because you are basically saying that even if you ran into an attractive woman you would walk right by her in disgust, without a second thought, simply because she isn`t skinny as all living hell.
She says that people should own up to their weight and not be ashamed. She also said that people SHOULD try to be healthy. Some fat people are VERY healthy.
Basically, she was saying that you shouldn`t use "I`m fat" as an excuse to stop improving yourself, and you also shouldn`t stop living life, having fun, and trying new things because of your "fat".
It`s a great way to think. And to anyone that didn`t think she was pretty, well, then, I`m sure that she has better things to do than be upset that you don`t want to look at a fat girl. I`m sure that with her self-confidence and personality, she could have rewarding relationships even if she looked like Jabba .
I don`t think it`s close-minded, it`s a personal opinion, just like some people are attracted to the anorexically thin and morbidly obese, but the problem is that you said "generally". It gives the implication that you think it`s somewhat of a rule to everyone. Besides, to get fatter just means to put on weight and some girls would look a lot more attractive for it.
I believe you just answered your own question, swisstaco5.
Look, I get it; you`re not into heavy chicks. Alright? I GET IT. I`m just saying that guys who think that way don`t need to act like total douchebags about it. You`ve got opinions and preferences, and so do I. They`re different, is all.
close-minded? since when is believing that fat is a distasteful physical characteristic close-minded?
jesus, how close minded are you?
There`s a big difference between being physically and inwardly attractive. While I don`t think fat girls can be attractive physically, that doesnt mean I couldnt be friends with them.
Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but generally, the fatter a girl gets, the uglier she gets.
Really? You can guarantee that people serious about diet and EXERCISE don`t weigh 224 lbs? How can you guarantee such a thing? Please, explain; I`m very curious.
... you can`t see a non-thin woman and think she is attractive that is, well sad.
I like thin women too, but it is sad that you can`t see a non-thin woman and think she is attractive.
You can be fat and have a healthy heart, just like you can be thin and die of a heart attack. My uncle had 13 (yes... 13 all in a row) heart attacks when he was 31. He has never been an ounce overweight. He`s in incredible shape. I`m not saying that justifies it if he decides to be a lazy pig, but just assuming that a moderately overweight person will die of a heart attack is assinine.
Like I said, there`s a point where people just don`t control it and go overboard... but not all overweight people are like that.
The fact is, though, that there is too much when anything is considered. Too much of anything, food/junk food included, can be bad for you. Hell, too much vitamin C can be deadly. The point is, there are people who eat right, who do exercise, and are still overweight.
I have PCOS and Insulin Resistance. I can diet and exercise as much as the next person and lose a few ounces compare to a few pounds that an average person would lose. My energy levels are incredibly low, and I have bad knees to boot (I just love genetics). Am I disgustingly obese? No. Am I insecure? You bet. I nearly let the love of my life go because he`s thin and attractive and I thought I wasn`t good enough. We make each other happy.
Moderation is the key. I kinda wish thin people centered on vanity could be uncontrollably fat for a year...
"Its not who you are on the inside, but what you *do* that defines you." ~Batman Beings
Wow, man, you`re bored ;-)
Fat people dont lack self-discipline, people in general do. The 94-95% of people who fail in their diets are not all fat to begin with.
As for being obese, my friends boyfriend is technically obese using the height vs weight method - he`s solid muscle.
My mother has done regular excersise for 8 years but is still "obese".
My sister`s "obese" but carries a lot of weight in her H cup breasts. The doctors want her under 10 stone before they would consider her for a reduction, an unrealistic weight for her body type.
I`m obese (using an online chart) but am just naturally curvy with a waist UK size 12, hip size 16 and bra 36G.
But I don`t think the point of the video is that being fat is ok so much as be comfortable in your own body, even if it happens to be a fat body.
My best friend of over 10 years is as skinny as a twig. She gets sick, and she loses 20 pounds that she doesn`t even *have* on her body to lose. She`s absolutely beautiful too.
My brother is 6`5" and weighs between 180-200 pounds. He`s skinny as a twig, and he`s gorgeous too. His girlfriend Sam weighs all of 115, I`m sure, but she`s a wonderful person and beautiful too.
We`re all beautiful. Get comfortable in your skin, its the only one you`ve got.
And why waste time/energy stressing over whether or not you`re fat, or whether or not to call someone else fat?? Why? Ask yourself, jsut ... WHY?
My myspace is DnDRoguishLover, check it out for anybody who wants to see some beautiful pics of me, my friend, my boyfriend, my brother... We`re all beautiful.
Once more before I become a hippie:
WE`RE ALL BEAUTIFUL
That`s my weight. And I`m beautiful. Notbecause I tell myself that to make me feel better, but because its true.
Yes, both of my parents are overweight, and so are my grandparents. My dad is really the only one who *tries* to lsoe though, and that`s because he`s gotten to the "unhealthy" point.. Not, as in having a heartattack unhealthy, because that can happen to ANYONE, but as in, he`s about to get diabetes unhealhty...
As for me, I`m beautiful, and happy the way I am. I have a wonderful boyfriend, whose penis is NOT 10", but is perfect for me, and he`s overweight too. We`re both healthy, loving people, in a healthy, loving relationship. Hell, we even play video games and D&D together. We also walk everywhere together.
Running low on characters, so I`ll conitnue in my next post...
skinny is beneficial, it makes health and life easier. but really, really, when it comes down to it, it doesn`t ****ing matter. life isn`t about how you look during your time here. it`s about how you live it and what you do. screw vanity, screw aesthetics. there`s no purpose. if i want beauty ill go to an art museum.
You people have fun tearing each other up, I`m out.
I must be in the 2 - 5% because it hasnt come back. Not yet anyway!
"Monday, March 26, 2007 10:23:08 PMHEY, A**HOLE, YES YOU ^Most people that are fat have a MEDICAL CONDITION, dumba**. I bet you every single fat person on this earth is smarter and nicer than YOU, you BASTARD."
Firstly, JihadAllah, as many people have pointed out, not all fat people stuff their faces with grease and fat, that`s like saying all skinny people puke up after they eat. How can you say fat people suck? That`s like saying "Asians suck" or "americans suck"...do you know EVERY fat person???
But Woot45, where did you get that info that most fat people have medical conditions? I highly doubt that`s true, I`d say a percentage do, but most are just fat because of their lifestyles
B) I agree with everything Sugarpuss6969 said she took the words right out of my mouth
C) Fat people shouldnt be ashamed of themselves as long as they are healthy. maybe they can help being that big.
Any guy who claims to be straight, but does not find this woman attractive, is either:A) gay and in denial.B) a FREAK.C) trying to look `cool` to the fat-haters by lying.
She will be mine. Oh yes; She Will Be Mine. (if she`ll have me, that is)
In conclusion, I invite all fat-haters to BITE ME.
WTF?! I`m 5`5" and 130-140 lbs. And I`m not fat. I have a little bit of a tummy and my thighs are def. not as skinny as a model, but I am NOT fat. So YOU are not fat. Am I the only one who agrees that only 155 lbs is not fat for a girl who is 5`7"?!
There are new studies that suggest health advantages for being moderately overweight, but let`s face it, the problem with being fat is not about self-control, health, or character flaws; it`s merely about the fact that fat people are physically unattractive. People need to come to terms with their outward appearance, decide how hard they want to work at changing it, and move on with their life, instead of overcompensating by pretending they can still be physically attractive.
I love how some peoples on her are assuming that when someone calls this chick "fat," They are saying she should be skinny as a pole.
I wish more people weren`t ignorant.
that and i`m getting rather frustrated that you keep saying "fatties" it really pisses me off.
and why the hell would there be cooperation with you?
but most certainly not to any of you ignorant bastards who pick on the fat people, or the skinny people for that matter, just because you have nothing better to do with your lives
and by nice, i mean pissed off as all that is demonic and fiery
I liked this video, and I am personally not a fat ass. Wanna know why I liked it? Because she didn`t blame other people for her own damn problems and things that might not work in her life
Seemingly unlike you, who blames everything that happens to them on the fact that they are fat.
And ya know what? When you get a little older and your metabolism is shot to hell, I am gonna enjoy laughin my ass off at you and will GLADLY yell in your face "WHO`S A FAT DUMBASS NOW?!"
`CAUSE YOU DESERVE IT YA CLOSE MINDED MOTHER F UCKER
if you don`t agree with her rant, fine, comment that you don`t agree and leave it at that. there`s no need for all the personal attacks and the hate towards fat people (and skinny people too)
none of these exessive and over-the-line insults are needed, let alone appreciated or wanted, by any means.
yeah, you got an opinion on it? congrats, keep all the swearing and unnecessary cruel comments to your own damn self
you can think it as much as you want, just dont need to say it
THAT is an excuse for being fat?
Gimme a break.
Not as bad as illiterate people. :`(
If you had half the guts, honesty, or self-esteem of this girl you wouldn`t be throwing stones from behind your computer in your mom`s basement.
Do us all, and yourself, a favor: post your negative comments under a real name, or just admit you`re a spineless wonder and shut up.
Anyways, being overweight is unhealthy, plain and simple. If you`ve legitimately tried to lose weight, but have been unsuccessful, well good for you. You have a slow metabolism, your genes make you store fat in you body, whatever. You`ve done your best, so all you can do then is eat healthy and excersise, even if you don`t lose weight. But honestly, for many many people, food is just as addicting (phsychologically and physically) as cigarrettes. I don`t expect ANYBODY that regularly goes to this website to ever understand that, however. If somebody does, great, your not a jerk.
Otherwise, get your head out of your a*s.
And hey, I`m fat too. WOAH! OMG! I`m suddenly less human! I must have undergone some sort of transformation into another species!
Pfft. I don`t like being fat, but it`s not making me any less happy. So why change it? I`m not gaining any more weight, and my health is fine.
a lot of times, it is not their fault, and also, so what if they`re a little bigger than some people?
your comments say a lot about you as a person
she`s fine with the fact that she`s larger and she is perfectly healthy, and those of you insulting her and all that are really just confirming the fact that you are closed-minded bastards who think that just because someone`s not your size or smaller, that it is undoubtably because they are lazy or they eat too much or unhealthily.
ever think that it might not be their fault? ya know, metabolism might be slow, something in the family history might cause it, or it might just be how they`re built?
seriously... you people sicken me
haha society makes me laugh
just to tell you, their have been numerous tests done and surveys done, and around 90% of the time, you`re fat because you`re fat. Maybe your metabolism isn`t as great as mine, but that doesn`t mean you shouldn`t eat less of that McDonalds. also, i`ve noticed that the majority of girls stick up for her while the guys talk about her being fa
It was about the other comments rtard, not the video.
In 300 all of the men were half naked
If there had been a movie like that with women instead, it would`ve been burned to the ground because for some reason, woman can`t be sexist, but every man is.
If that were a fat man, I seriously doubt the number of supportive comments would be as high as it is, if even a fraction.
Women are fine with calling men fat but when a man calls a woman fat, it`s a goddamn federal offense.
No matter what gender you are, you should not be proud of being overweight. It`s not like being black, or being gay, it`s like being UNHEALTHY.
Tiny people have their appeal, just as much as not-so-tiny people do. Be happy with who you are.
The only thing I dislike in this general subject is people who are fat and are complaining about it. It`s like complaining over you`re apartment being messy.
I don`t think she`s fat. And I really do think it depends on how tall you are/your body shape. See, I`m 5`5" and I weigh around 124 lbs. or so. But... I don`t look nearly as skinny as that.
I agree that you shouldn`t stop living your life just because you`re overweight, and that this woman is at least doing something to motivate overweight people who are scared to live.
As for the issue of being lazy vs. heredity, I think a large number of obese people can`t help it. But you have to agree that there is a minority of people who really are just lazy.This woman seems to work out, though. I mean, she said she swims. She also said she runs. I think some people who watched this missed that point.
I dunno. Overall, I thought this was good. But I can understand both sides of the argument.=/ Meh.
i realize that has nothing to do with being fat though.
but i don`t see 224 as fat :/
when i think fat i think...500 pounds
well, im actually underweight, and if i had a dime for everytime i got asked if i was anorexic, id be rich. but whatever if youre fat, youre fat, nice rant, but she should just live her life instead of trying to prove to the world that being fat isnt bad. i dont care tho, good for her.
Then I remembered something. I`m only 16. I have my whole life ahead of me. If anything, what I still have is baby fat. A lot of pudgy people keep that until they`re around 18. For some its inevitable. I`ve been made fun of and picked on, but honestly, I haven`t cared.
People say what they must to feel better about themselves. They have a flaw (crazy parents, trouble at school, etc.) and compensate that by making fun of others.
I myself have never picked on anybody. Mostly because I know how it feels, and also I have no reason too. I`m fine with who I am.
Except when it comes to dating. I`m way too shy, and my physical appearence doesn`t help. Girls are just as bad as guys when it comes to this, no matter what people say.
Eeeeeewwwwww!!! EEEWWWWWW!!!!I`m a bigger girl, weigh the same as the girl on the vid (though I`m 5`11) and I have no flap covering my hole. Thats disgusting. Thats gotta be like... SEVERE, morbid obesety, which is definitely not right. People who can sit in their beds and consume and consume to the point where they can`t get OUT of bed, thats gross. Thats society at its worst. However, for some people it`s not a conscious decision. I don`t eat deep-fried chocolate bars or deadly McDonald`s all the time.. I eat 3 meals a day and I walk my fat-ass everywhere so anyone who says to me I`m lazy, just because of the way I look, is completely ignorant and definitely not worth my time anyways. Ladies, love yourselves. You don`t want a guy who would want you to be different just to be accepted.
I would NEVER say she was fat.I mean, the camera ADDS 10lbs. ((Supposedly))I mean, I`m 175lbs.I thought I was horribly overweight.But I`m pretty tall.And.I FEEL HAPPIER ABOUTMYSELF NOW.
i thought the bathing suit was cute
But! fat is not attractive its also not natural its a sign of society killings itself. how many other mammals on the planet are fat because of overeating? none they eat to survive not eat deep fried lard!! its uglyand not natural. also sleeping with fat people is gross did it once when pissed, had to lift the flab out the way to find the hole :(
Whoever said this - "all I know is I`ve seen people get heart attacks with less weight then 224 pounds." You are such a dumbass... what you saying is bases to conclude being fat is not the only cause of heart attack. Why are people on this site so drating stupid?
it`s shocking sometimes to realize how much social reconditioning we`ve all undergone.
But I`d also say it`s not okay to beSO FAT that you don`t know you`re pregnant.
Didn`t you ever hear the old saying "If everyone were the same the world would be boring"
Wow I can`t believe some of you
^^ I am not being picky but I just wanted to add that all of these things can happen when you are overweight too. I think it is just important to ignore society and be healthy and happy!
Both my parents are fat and im skinny to the point of gauntness. You can only blame genetics so far.
But yer get over being fat it no big deal, but dont think its your only option.
Being emaciated and underweight leads to all kinds of health problems: malnourishment, bone density loss, loss of hair, missed menstrual cycles... list goes on.
On the flipside, being obese leads to it`s own problems: heart attacks, high blood pressure, diabetes, repiratory problems... list goes on.
So when is the emaciated and the obese going to realize that being IN THE MIDDLE is the best solution? I`m not going to balloon up to an 18, but I sure as hell don`t want to be a 1... being an 8 is just fine with me.
There is enough food and money for everyone.. its not right that there are superstars with £500million, so why should it be right for people to weigh 224lbs when ther are lot of people that weigh next to nothing because they cant even afford to eat
Can you really pick a number at which somebody attains a lable such as fat? Is there a point at which a person can gain one more pound and suddenly be treated entirely differently? People who are the same weight can look totally different and so, I think, that you could only judge a person`s appearance by looking at them and that the number is nothing of an indication. Anyway, appearance is often only the first stage of attraction, ie, before you`ve talked to a person. I`d like to think that, once you`ve entered into a conversation with them, all that you take in are their personality and opinions.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I know, im fat.
(yes stupid joke)
There is no such thing as the perfect image, so what the hell are you talking about, yea might see all this barbie doll whores walking around, but dude there not perfect.
But onto the vid, was good, although i already admit to myself im fat, i dont give 2 flying f***s what others think of my looks, its my body, not theres, why do they need to comment on somthing that isnt theirs?
And Sugapuss rpm was right, men have as much trouble with health freaks, the same as women, all me are supposed to have a fit, muscular, toned body, have a 10" penis and vist the gym 388 days of the year.
No i dont do that, i play football(soccer) now and again, and i swim now and again, but i walk almost everywhere, so, im technicly doing exercise when ever im out, which prove the point fat people arnt lazy, because if you see a bigger person walking down the street, u have the balls to call them lazy, when they still go out and have a life??
I dont remember who said "didnt you had it more easy because you was pretty, thin and bla bla bla" answering to that girl who said she is a model?
Well yeah, SOCIETY made it that its more easy for a thin person than a chubby one. WHO decided thin women will be the sexiest? Media... Yep, the same media that is pounding on your daughters minds and make them absorbs all this crap. And parents, which absorbed all this crap and keep telling their daughter: be young, be pretty, fat and old inst pretty, its gross!
I saw many very beautifull women being overweight. and alot of thin one being so obsess about their weight they turned ugly. Its all about attitude.
And dont worry girls, there man out there who likes curves and normal women! And man! dont worry as well... Women arent all shallow and stupids. We love you too. And...
WHAT SHE SAY IS TRUE, STOP TAKING THE FACT YOU ARE FAT AS A FREAKING EXCUSE FOR YOUR PERSONNAL FAILLURE!!!!!
And no, most people aren`t fat because they are lazy.
Um before you decide to get your bitch on, I found her somewhat attractive, all I know is I`ve seen people get heart attacks with less weight then 224 pounds. I`m not being a douchebag, I`m just stating facts and there needs to be a common ground between the perfect image and obesity.
I`m just trying to say that men experience the same amount of social pressure for the way they look,it`s just a different type.
Considering she looks very tall as well as fat, 224 isn`t as "bad" as it sounds. I agree that there is a point where it really becomes a problem healthwise. But determining that point is different for everyone and has a lot to do with height and muscle and, yes, fat.
Has anyone ever heard the statistic that a considerable number of homophobes are actually homosexual themselves? The same idea may apply here. Those who think fat people are stupid or lazy are probably incredibly insecure about themselves, whether their actually fat or not.
