It's called the tests came back inconclusive because they were not able to get people's hands in water when they were asleep and keep them asleep except for Adam spilling the water from the bowl all over himself. The theory they have is that it in fact wouldn't cause you to pee, but they simply were not able to test it fully with any real results.
She's nine, so I'd just ignore her. If she's really annoying, say yes and tell her you'll send her a brochure for next year.
Now that's just mean. :p Ignore the child, Op. If you're happy the way you are, lean or otherwise, than that's all that matters. ;P
That's a bullshit excuse for fat people to think it's perfectly fine to be fat. It's not. Yeah, you can still be a wonderful person when you're fat, but IT IS NOT OK. It's unhealthy. Clogged arteries, diabetes, increased risk of heart conditions, inability to perform certain tasks a normal person would be able to do... That's what being fat does to you. It is NOT ok.
It's also not your body, and not everyone sees okay the same way you do. Some times people need to be told that they are beautiful no matter how much weight they have on them or lack there of of said weight. They are beautiful people because they are perfectly normal, it may not be healthy but nobody ever claims it is healthy. Telling a person this stuff is not news to them, especially over FML, and won't cause any revelations in their lifestyle. So in short, no, it isn't healthy to be overweight/underweight, but if it is in a reasonable manner, to where you are literally killing yourself with the issue, it is okay. Beauty is never only skin deep.
81- I understand very much that being over weight is a disease. I used to fall into the Obese category until a few years ago and I was fat growing up as a kid, but on top of being fat, I was depressed and Wasn't happy with myself at all: Over weight isn't healthy, for sure, but neither's growing up hating every inch of yourself because of other people's standards labeling you disgusting and being made to feel that was who and what you are. IF Op is over weight, and it doesn't actually Say that she actually is, I would happily recommend a routine of diet and exercise, but I'd also like to boost her psyche to accept herself first, because as you pointed out, beauty ISN'T only skin deep......it's how you feel about yourself. :(
I have a friend who has been big her while life. One year, she started working out, eating healthy, and cutting back on her food consumption. She lost sixty lbs and then she stopped. She was at 190. She kept trying to loose weight but her body just wouldn't. Some people are incapable of being skinny. People are not always fat by choice. There are also diseases and disorders which cause you to gain weight or to be unable to lose weight.
