Since when does eating fast food mean you can't make fun of fat people? Also, if someone's working out and going to the gym, I'm gonna support them, but I don't want to be forced to compliment someone sitting on her fat ass whining all day. I still will be nice and I think it's rude to make fun of fat people, but #1 isn't fat so she should be able to eat what she wants. Silly fat people...
50, 52, and 75. So, we have to be gorgeous and eat salad all day to be able to make fun of fat people? Why is any of that relevant? If you want us not to make fun of them, use moral reasons not to, not some "logic" that we can't criticise people who eat unhealthy if we've ever eaten unhealthy foods ourselves.
yes, i am extremely jelous of you i stay awake at night plotting how i can be more like you SHUT THE FUCK UP. is that better? now, 91, i didnt say we need to put people down. OP might have been fishing for compliments, didn't grt any, posted it on FML (that's why we have FML..to read about people's failures) and that's that. it's not our fault her boyfriend reacted that way. but when you're put in that awkward situation, what are you going to say?
102 I didn't bash anyone dur. all I said was she was just told to lose a little weight. why complain? I was told to gain a little and you don't see me making an fml. thanks for devoting a comment to me. and 105 thank you for taking the time to add something to me in your comment. no need to get such a big head. I never specifically stated you're jealous; you said that on your own.
I've been reading tweetbaby14's comments and I feel silence is no longer prudent. First, you're obviously sucking in your gut so hard you can't breathe, lil' miss 'must do backbend so ribcage sticks out'. Second, as Miss Swan would put it, "You looka like a man. An uuuugly man". Third, your brain cells need a few dozen recovery cycles. So go slip into a coma, let them rejuvenate, and leave us the hell alone. Deuces.
tweet, if you can't see your ribcage, I doubt you need to gain weight. And don't be cute-- you know that by "see" we mean "see the outline of", the same way you can "see" boobs and muscles. [No, I'm not saying she's fat, or that seeing anyone's ribcage should be the ideal. Just pointing out the inconsistency.]
214: If you're addressing me, I wasn't implying that. What I meant was that if you're underweight enough to cause your doctor concern, you would undoubtedly be able to see your ribs. Since it's a general guideline, not a hard and fast rule, docs tend to give a lot of leeway to the BMI, especially when one is underweight. I'm 5' 8" and have been underweight my entire life. I have a small frame, though, so my current 106lbs. isn't low enough to cause concern for my health. I have to drop below 100lbs, more than 20lbs. under my ideal BMI, before my doctors tell me I *must* gain weight. I've had to pay attention to my diet and exercise to stay healthy for 20+ years (some of that with other health issues preventing weight gain and making me immunity-deficient), so I know what I'm talking about here. Upon rereading her comments, I realized that tweet didn't say she was given *medical* advice to gain weight, so I'll admit that maybe I was wrong about her particular case. However, I was basing that statement on how a doctor sees weight, not a parent, friend, etc., so with that clarification, I stand by my statement.
Those "some people" being less than 1% of the overall population; legitimate glandular conditions are incredibly rare. 99% of obese people are obese b/c A) they eat garbage, B) they eat too much of that garbage, C) they eat nothing BUT garbage, and D) they live ultra-sedentary lifestyles. It really is THIS simple: if it's packaged, don't eat it. Stick to FRESH meat, FRESH fruits and vegetables, and fresh whole grains. Eat carbs and protein together so your insulin doesn't spike. Limit fats to healthy monounsaturated fats like in nuts, fish, olive oil, etc. and even limit those b/c healthy fat is STILL fat and calorie-dense. And of course, turn off your X-Box, your TV, your interweb cyberscreen device, etc. and go outside and WALK at least. Work your way up to REAL exercise once walking more than the distance to your car is easy for you. As you progress, add strength training. Find exercise you enjoy and will stick with, whether it's swimming, biking, kickboxing, hiking, etc. Alternatively: you can keep stuffing your face with Big Macs and whine about being fat on the internet, after you catch your breath from walking across the room.
Agree with Trollz. I know from personal experience how health issues can make your weight hard to manage, but you still *have* to do it if you don't want to complicate whatever issues you have already. I had to do the opposite and gain weight when it was very hard to do so. I still sucked it up and did it in a healthy way. No one's even brought up the fact that many of the health issues that cause weight gain and prevent weight loss are often themselves caused by poor diet and exercise habits. I know that isn't always the case, but in my experience, it often is. I know someone who can't work out because her heart, legs, and joints are bad. Her heart is bad because she chain-smoked and ate crap for years. Her joints are bad because she's grossly obese, and they're overworked. Her legs are bad because she's diabetic and they swell, which again, is caused by her obesity. She's got a medical excuse to avoid exercise, but avoiding exercise just perpetuates the problems. It's a shitty cycle.
Trollz is spot on. If you eat healthy food in moderation, and increase your movement (ANY movement, not $1200/year gym membership movement) the weight will sort itself out. When I say 'healthy food', I don't mean some marketing lies on a packet "ZOMG! Now 97% fat free with added Madeupamine", I mean food cooked from ingredients your grandmother would recognize. In a world where it's possible to buy a single drink with more than the RDI calorie intake (I'm looking at you Baskin-Robbins), you need to watch what you're doing. (Secret hint: Most 'fruit juice' contains as much sugar as soda.) When it comes to weight problems through legitimate medical conditions, I've seen many more people where it was uncontrollable weight LOSS rather than gain (although I have seen both). The argument that it's 'genetic' is rubbish _most_ of the time too. Overweight parents teaching their kids unhealthy habits by example is _not_ genetics. Weight loss is not a mystery. 'Eat less, move more' is just something people don't want to hear.
Who says she was fishing for compliments? Maybe it's just something that really bothers her, and she felt close enough to him to confide in him about it. Or maybe she wanted his support to help stop obsessing (because that's bad, regardless of if she actually needs to lose weight or not).
he was trying to be nice, you don't need to put it on fml.
Wow. There's a lot of rude people on FML. No need to call her "fatty" or "lil piggy". :(
