Today, after dieting and working out for almost 3 months, I sit down on my chair to finish off some work. It broke. FML

I like how you make the work out part seem important. I highly doubt it broke cause you were too big

maybe it broke because it couldn't stand how awesome you looked ^_^ darn things just don't hold up like they used to lol

or cuz of all the weight of muscles...?

The way this FML is worded makes it seem as if OP hasn't sat down for 3 months..

Moscow does weigh more than fat

keep up the good work

or how much muscles you have?

Agreed. Keep up the good work. If you're large enough to think you broke a chair by sitting on it, the chair probably was stressed from all the other times you had sat on it. One thing to remember, though, is that muscle weighs more than fat, and muscle uses up calories at a faster rate, even when resting. So even if it happened because of your current weight, don't give up the working out. (And I hope by "dieting" you mean that you're getting at least 60 grams of protein a day, eating regular, smaller meals, throughout the day - like 5 to 6 of them - and are drinking plenty of water.)

#4 is right - muscle weighs 3x more than fat.

nicely put #4... i agree completely, except for the protein part... not every person should have 60g of protein a day, it all depends on what they're current weight is and their intensity etc. etc. to much protein in the system will just get flushed out but keep up the work i'm sure you're doing amazing, and remember muscle does weigh more than fat

Listen to #4, people, he knows what he's saying.

WTF? Most of what you said is accurate. But muscle does NOT weigh more than fat. One pound of muscle weighs exactly the same as a pound of fat. One pound of gold weighs the same as one pound of marshmallows. Regardless, if you had not been dieting and exercising for the past three months, that chair would probably have broke 2.5 months ago.

Wow. You're dumb 63 Muscle does weigh more than fat, as in one cubic inch of muscle weighs more than one cubic inch of fat. About three times as much. Ofcourse one POUND of gold weighs the same as one POUND of marshmallows. Pound is the unit of measurement for weight. but a cup of marshmellows would weigh way less than a cup of gold.

#63 please go back to elimentary school and learn the difference between measurement and mass. You can measure out a pound of muscle and a pound of fat, but muscle has more MASS than fat, therefore if you take the same amount of fat as mucle, muscle will weigh more.... WOW

Chairs break. You don't have to be fat if there's something wrong with the it in the first place. Keep up the good work.

Muscle is heavier than fat! No worries!

Another misguided soul. No, they weigh the same. Muscle is more dense than fat, but one pound of anything weighs exactly one pound of something else. You're educated in the U.S. aren't you??

wow, can you please re-read your comment and realize that you just contradicted yourself, muscle has more mass than fat, therefore the if you were to take a portion of fat and the same amount of muslce, the muscle will weigh more... you just told them that muscle weighs the same but is more dense... IT"S MORE DENSE, therefore will weigh more

Lol, the chair thing happened to me, except I weigh 130lb. So don't feel bad about that, it was probably either an old chair or a poorly made one.

LOLLL. everyone is right, muscle IS heavier than fat. im sorry to be laughing. i just laugh when people fall off chairs & fall over & stuff. im sorry.

No, everyone who says muscle weighs more than fat is wrong. Good grief people, do you just believe everything you hear?

Your wrong dudee^^^ listen one pound of fat and one pound of muscle, yes, does weight the same. BUT one CUP of muscle and one CUP of fat weigh different! and if you don't believe me, or anybody else, why don't you go and experiment it? think before you comment!

holy fuck i know this is an old post but 65 you are freaking retarded

this happens to slim people, too. Says more about the chair than about you.

It broke out of surprise
