A woman standing 5`3 and weighing 180 pounds is clinically obese.
A woman standing 5`7 and weighing 237 pounds is also clinically obese.
Morbid obesity is a BMI of anything over 40.
If you`re 5`8 and weigh 290 lbs, you are morbidly obese.
If you`re 5`4 and weigh 240 lbs, you are morbidly obese.
Obesity is not determined by being "100 pounds" over weight.
Agreed.It makes me so angry when people say these things.
Yeah obesity AND anorexia are done by the people to themselves, but anorexia is an awful mental problem, I don`t like calling it a disease because to me a disease is like malaria etc. but all the same.
My friend looks horrific, I want to tell her, but the way their minds work, she`s think I was saying she looked awful because she was FAT. But if I said, she looks nice to try and stop her from doing it, to let her see she`s gone too far, she`ll think I don`t but if I lose more, maybe I will.
It`s a horrible horrible thing to live with and people like this
You know what I think of Anorexics? drat `em. Rich white chicks don`t want to eat? Let `em starve.
REALLY f*** me off.
@ marencolleen - I hope you manage to find it in yourself to see that you are beautiful no matter what.
then death said " god you look so thin, totally jealous"
bich made me hungry
(It still made me feel sympathetic though. I know what it`s like to suffer a mental disorder. Not as bad, but still.)
Zombiemike--try eating some fruits and vegetables mixed in with all those carbs and fats too, man. You need vitamins to aid your body in directing nutrient absorbtion, and healthy sources of protein with fiber as well ...to keep all that stuff from just sliding through your system.
...Anorexia is such a horrible disease :/
I find this kinda interesting. I`m not stating my exact weight, but I weigh over 200lbs and I don`t feel like I`m morbidly obese at all. I don`t feel unhealthy, and I don`t really look morbidly obese either, and I know other girls who are the same way. I consider someone 300+lbs (depending on height, of course) to be morbidly obese.
But I`m glad this girl is trying to get help. She can have some of my fat. =D
And it really is a disease. I`m not even going to get into it.
Son, do the world a favor and grown up. If a troll, such as yourself, were to die our collective IQ would increase.
And once a girl/woman gets stuck, like adarling said, it becomes an addiction.
besides, if ur gonna concede that one then you have to concede obesity and its much better to go off saying both of em are BS and a waste of life and food than accepting either one.
its just that after seeing so many people struggling with much more serious diseases and disorders, seeing this makes me think "boo hoo rich white girl thinks shes fat/ugly, maybe they will show a clip of her throwing up a weeks worth of food!"
Good freaking god, so many of you who have obviously never experienced this have such closed minds.
If that was not directed to me, ignore this.
eating at mcdonalds everyday and being too lazy to exercise it off, isn`t. "
Actually, you`re only partially correct. There are a multitude of reasons why a person may over eat, including mental health disorders.
In either case, both the anorexic and the morbidly obese do it to themselves. The only difference is how socially acceptable one is to the other.

Interesting how at different ends of the weight spectrum, you have incredibly diverse opinions and attitudes.
For everyone else: is it just me or did anyone else think of photos of Nazi concentration camp survivors? I`ve drawn this association in my mind for years, and at this point (I am a believer half in karma and half in waves of mass psychosis) I am convinced that the prevalence of eating disorders is the ghost of the Holocaust`s unfinished business that nobody talks about, rearing its life-destroying head in innocent souls, bodies, and psyches.
I know this
We`re killing ourselves to make each other happy.
See, THIS is why marijuana should be legalized! She`d eat if she was stoned.
heh, just kidding...
I`m sure if extreme thinness wasn`t so lauded in society, fewer people would have to resort to `doing this to themselves`.
Yes, I`m blaming society.
It`s not really a disease. It`s just another obsessive-compulsive disorder which happens to have the small side effect of death.
That`s because we view the obese as lazy while deep down we secretly admire the discipline it takes to ignore you hunger and abstain from food.
U know, over here in England, that`s pretty cheap...
*Stops joking, watches video*
Woah. Not funny.
