Today, I was trying to exercise more, so I went for a walk. I was quickly overtaken by a middle-aged lady with cankles, carrying heavy shopping bags in each hand. I'm 19, skinny, and apparently very unfit. FML

Maybe you should admire this woman who appears to be in better shape than you instead of talking about her "cankles". You deserved it if for no other reason than you need to learn some respect.

<p>Fitness isn't always determined by size. Just keep working at it OP. No matter one's size, if you're exercising, then you're still doing better than the willful couch potato.&nbsp;<img src="../lib/tinymce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-smile.gif" alt="smile" /></p>

If she had bags on both arms, I'm not surprised that she was in a hurry. That's heavy and can sometimes be so tight on the arms depending how the bags were placed. Don't feel bad op, but if you feel it's necessary or desired, you could work into getting more in shape :)

<p>Thank you. I came here just to say this. I'm overweight/obese with those&nbsp;<em>offensive</em> "cankles" and I can generally outwalk a LOT of skinny people. You deserve it for believing weight defines health. Suck it up, buttercup. Keep walking and next time, keep your offensive judgement of others' bodies to yourself.</p>

<p>Thank you! I came in to say exactly this. As for OP, suck it up, buttercup. Keep walking and put preconceived notions about size and health where ti belongs, in the trash.</p>

<p>Ugh.. and this replied in the wrong place. This site now sucks about things working right and we cannot delete comments, apparently. FML</p>

<p>Keep it up OP.&nbsp; When I first started walking everyday 3 years ago, I was walking with a 61 yr old neighbor and she was in way better shape than I was at the time(I was 38 at the time).&nbsp; Now I have lost over 60 lbs and my endurance is way better now.</p>

Chin up, young lady, there's hope. With regular walking exercise, you can also improve your fitness AND build up your cankles!

maybe she had to pee real bad

Other than problems like edema related to obesity, ankle size has almost nothing to do with how much you weigh. YDI for being judgemental.

I'm 19, very thin, and definitely not fit(wanting to work on that), it's called being lucky. Though it is very frustrating when you're trying to gain weight. You can't tell how healthy or how fit someone is just looking at weight. Just because you're thin doesn't mean you're healthier or more fit than a heavier person.

<p>Goodness. Salty much? YDI just for that.</p>

I've had chubby and old people blow past me in endurance races many times. Don't judge a book by its cover.
