Use it as motivation to get in shape. There are a ton of benefits, the best of which is a proud seven year old and more years to spend with her. :)

Don't blame being judgemental on Barbie. Plenty of us played Barbies constantly and had enough sense to look at the real world for reality and not an immobile plastic doll.

I'm sure Barbie represents different things to different children. We used to paint her in camouflage colours and make her fly around on balloons and launch missiles from the air. Then she and Spiderman would get in an army van and go on cross-country killing sprees to the farthest reaches of the garden. The other toys would know no mercy. In fact most of them fled to Hogwarts. But I digress.

This is the sad, sad world we live in now days. Little girls are ashamed of their own mother because they aren't what the media thinks is ideal

59. I can blame Barbie. I was homeschooled and I lived in a small town where there weren't many people to compare, the ones I saw happened to be really skinny. so the only media I was exposed to was Barbie dolls which are all skinny. there's no fat barbies. so I figured that everyone is supposed to look like that.

Maybe the OP is happy with their weight. If that is true and there are no health risks there is no need for her to try to lose weight.

Small town ok... But please stop making homeschoolers look bad. 67 (I think) your games with Barbie sounds awesome! I used to dismember mine and hang them from strings across the room to freak my asshole father out.

To be honest, 70, if she were like two hundred pounds of obesity, I would be ashamed, too. Not saying she is, but as an example, let's say she is. The media might not be right, but I don't agree on going around and saying 'be who you are! Make society accept that you are overweight and love your body for what it is!' Because let's be honest, more than enough people are using that as justification to their unhealthy weights, diets, and lifestyles. Yeah, some people have diseases or circumstances

LOL! No matter weight or size... OP's child should not be embarrassed. Bet OP is beautiful just the way she is!

136, I only know I did it cause she told stories. she laughed. i never had to apologize she didn't care. I was like 6, so she didn't take it seriously. I might be a bitch now but I wasn't then.

Make society accept that they're over weight?! Wtf?! It's none of society's damn business! Or yours for that matter. Health concerns aside, if someone purposely packs on 300 lbs just for the hell of it, it doesn't affect your life at all. Get over yourself.

Yes isn't such a terrible thing that the media taught her about the hazards of obesity such as High Blood Pressure, Stroke, Diabetes, and High cholesterol. Fuck the media and society.

I swear many Americans always make an excuse on why they can't change eating habits and lose weight. The reason why we are the fattest country in the world is pretty obvious

Even if you do only eat healthy and bust your ass to lose weight, not everyone can. Some people are designed to be bigger. There are those people we all hate that are stick thin and can live off of nothing but junk because they're designed to be skinny, so why is it that people just don't believe we can be designed to be fat too? Losing weight isn't just calories in vs. calories out. That only gets you so far before your genetics tell you to fuck off.

Actually no, people are not meant to be bigger. There is no such thing as big boned. Humans of the same height and sex have the same base bone size and structure. The problem is corn. It's subsidized and in everything- even healthy foods like peanut butter. Corn is not really utilized by the body. It's a cheap filler. The body turns the glucose from the corn into fat. I struggled to lose weight til I started growing and preparing my own food- no additives. People 50 years ago ate more fat and we

88 please tell me why my hips are wider in an X-ray compared to other females my height and age if all our shapes on the inside are the same.

I'm not talking about our bones, although some people do have somewhat bigger bones than others. I'm talking metabolisms, fat storage, etc. Some people are genetically designed to store more fat and have low metabolisms, just like some people are genetically designed to not store an ounce of fat and can eat 4000 calories a day and have 5% or less body fat.

#98-- Yes, people do come in different shapes and sizes. However, there's a huge difference between just being naturally chubby but still healthy and being ridiculously fat/overweight, as many people are. Chubbiness is definitely a result of genetics TO AN EXTENT, but the majority of people who are overweight are that way because of other reasons. For example, I have a relative who weighs over 400 lbs. His brother is of average weight. Don't tell me that has to do with genetics. If they were &qu

When you get to be 400 lbs, no that's not genetics, but you can be more than just chubby. My minimum weight is 175 at 5'6, unless I get surgery. That's a bit more than "chubby", but that's just how I'm designed. I weigh a little more than that now only because I don't torture myself. In order to stay at 175, I have to eat 1200 calories a day, bust my ass in the gym an hour a day every day, and never touch any sort of food that has any flavor. Fuck that. I eat about 1500-1700 calories a

I'm talking about looks, which is what I interpreted her child to be talking about. It's very good to teach kids about consequences of being over weight, but the media has a played a big role in the beauty aspect.

57- Actually it is calories in calories out, that is the law of thermal dynamics. People just need to find their calorie intake that suits their metabolism. Unless you have gone to the doctor and been diagnosed with a thyroid or other issue you are a complete disgrace if you say you can't lose weight. Whenever people tell me it's too expensive to eat healthy I just want to slap them. A single meal at McDonald's is around $6-7 so about $18-21 per day. You can go buy a club pack of boneless skinle

You really are one ignorant dumbfuck aren't you? I'm married to a bodybuilder/personal trainer so I know all about working out. I do interval training and mix up bike, elliptical, and treadmill and then I do weights after that. I also throw in Zumba to burn extra calories a few times a week. I count calories, I don't drink soda, I eat something fried maybe once a month, we eat more chicken than anything, lots of low cal protein shakes and bars in between meals, etc etc etc. If my metabolism requ

111- to add to your argument that healthier food isn't really more expensive-- if you think in the long run, it's cheaper to buy fresh food like broccoli, chicken and sweet potatoes than it is to pay for high blood pressure and diabetes medication in the future. Eating well is good prevention. Also, frozen veggies and fruit are cheaper than fresh.

115 - First of all I'm sorry if I insulted you as I was only pointing out the law of thermal dynamics. The bulk of my rant was not for you. Let me give you some background as to why I feel so strongly about this subject. I am currently a dietician/personal trainer/body builder. When I was 16 my dad died of heart failure from being overweight, at the time I was 284lbs. My mom did not have a job at the time and my dad brought in all the income for our family at the time. After his death my mom cou

I've tried everything kind of program but Medifast which I know will work to get me back in the 170s, but I'm not going to live my entire life never eating solid foods again. The one program I lost the most on I ate what they told me so I didn't have to count anything and it was all fresh produce, lean meats, healthy fats, lots of protein, and whole grains. My dad is the same way, as is his mother. After fighting our whole lives with it, it gets to the point where you say "fuck it, I'm not

Feel sorry for you OP. No offense or anything, but maybe it's time to start going to the gym?

if the kid knows you need to lose weight, you most likely do. They speak the truth about crap like that dude.. so like they said take walks, ride bikes, and have smaller portion sizes. don't feel bad, just make a change. it will benfit you and your family in the future:)

Marinus, you're usually so nice on here. Just because you were blessed with good genetics doesn't mean everyone is so stop being vain for 5 minutes and consider yourself lucky.
