I'm not saying it`s acceptable. It`s not. I`m not justifying myself in being overweight; I know I need to lose weight. You all aren`t getting my point. Unhealthy lifestyles IN GENERAL should never be condoned. Fat, skinny, what have you - it doesn`t matter. If I`m not allowed to make fun of a thin person`s lifestyle, then that person shouldn`t be allowed to make fun of mine.
As far as the girls in the video, that is unhealthy behavior, and I do not condone it. I also wouldn`t condone it if a bunch of thin people were doing it. It`s unhealthy, period. But am I going to insult them for doing it? No!
I don`t think I have it easy; I know I don`t. I`ve dealt with a weight problem my entire life. It`s the same as telling a smoker they`re going to get lung cancer if they continue to smoke. It doesn`t help the situation; in the end it`s up to them to decide when/how/if they want to change. Not you.

hahaaa, people don't get naturally fat or skinny, I thought i was naturally skinny 3 years back I was a size 6/8 ate poo all the time. Forgot the fact that i did between 20-30 hours of sport a week (had an active job at the time) A year later injury meant i couldn`t do sport and bam i put on 3 stone. I`ve almost lost all that now. But don`t say some poeple are natutally skinny becuase they aren`t they just don`t eat over the aount they should do. and it`s not acceptle to be obese because it`s unhealthy like the same way going to the loo then cooking isn`t acceptable. gaah

"Thin =/= healthy, contrary to popular belief."
I hate this drating argument. Pro-fat people use it as a way to lie to themselves and deflect the topic.
There are plenty of unhealthy lifestyles and just because they exist, obesity shouldn't suddenly become acceptable. The fact that over 25% of our population is obese should make it more unacceptable. The next time that 25% of our country is ravaged by starvation (either willfully or not), then we`ll talk about why "skinny" is unhealthy.
