Did you try Lane Bryant or Plus Size? If this incident occurred in one of these stores, perhaps its time to put the fork down. Couch to fridge and back does not count as a jog.

i agree wholeheartedly with #22. i've always been classified as overweight, but my doctor says it's not healthy for me to lose anymore weight, as that's just my body's shape. thinking that everyone who is overweight or obese needs to stop eating and start dieting is stereotypical and thoughtless. not everyone is born to be a size 6 and shaped perfectly. i do understand that this isn't always the case, but if you look at pin-up girls years ago, they are not the size 0 or size 2 models of today. over the years, our culture has placed too much value on being thin and mistakenly assume that thin is for everybody. and that's how we get diseases like anorexia and bulimia that appear in a vast amount of our population today.

While i do agree with everything your saying, I just want to make one point saying that diseases of anorexia and bulimia were around before media went crazy with being thin. And I know first hand that media isn't the only reason people develop these problems. But I agree they certainly don't help.
