Where did all you FAT people come from????????

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Unk's Wild Wild West : One Thread

Drop the chalupa.

Order grilled instead of fried.

Take a long walk!!

We were at the mall Saturday and I couldn't get over the number of OBESE people. They far outnumbered the fit people. Everywhere I looked, fat fat fat. And all of them were eating something,fries- supersized, hamburgers, cin rolls, steak on a stick, one kid had an ice cream cone in one hand and a milkshake in the other.

Quit eating and start walking!

Fat women with big o fat asses.

Fat men with fat everything.

Fat kids with fat faces.

Just because you feel hungry doesn't mean you are hungry. Drink some water sometimes your body just needs hydration.

Damn people exercise and eat a little less and a little smarter.

I am a glutton. I eat because I love it. I eat because it fills my emptiness. I eat. It's what I do. Mind your own business, KateMoss-breath.

We are lazy welfare mommas who love to eat and watch soap operas. Beats working!

Now that Dumbya is going to give us a $1000 tax break per kid, me and my drunkard hubby are going to work on cranking out a few more. More money to spend on Hostess Twinkies and beer!!

HA! I'll eat to that =)

(Stolen from that OTHER forum)

Do you have to hire little kids to tie your shoes?

Did the Department of Public Safety ask you to make beeping sounds whenever you walk backwards?

Do you have more chins than the San Francisco phone book?

Do you think spandex is an essential element?

Has anyone from the Beached Mammal Rescue Society ever rushed up to you at the sea shore by mistake?

Does your butt have it's own zip code?

Well, I've got news for YOU! Dreyers' has just put out a new ice cream flavor - Cracker Jack!!!!! I got me a quart at the grocery store yesterday, and ate the whole thing. Even let some dribble down my chin, and drip on my belly, where it sticks out from under my shirt. HA HA HA HA Ha ha ha ha..(SNARF)...ho ho he he he he.

I'm sorry, everyone. Really. I don't know what comes over me sometimes. I think it's this danged diet the missus has me on. Says I look like a 50 year old Cabbage Patch Kid.

I didn't eat a whole quart of ice cream. You gotta believe me. (and don't you hate it when people snarf when they laugh?)

Well, all I can do is appologize. And back away from the computer for a while.

Sitting at a CRT all day and eating McJunk Food several meals a day certainly is a factor in the modern epidemic of obesity.

-- Ronald (Junk@food.is.best), February 13, 2001.

It seems as though we have two ends of the spectrum, the obese and the Calista thin. As much as advertisements and the entertainment industry promote the extremely thin, americans have become more obese. Researchers continue to find ways for us to take a pill to shed those pounds and we continue to gain pounds.

Compounding this issue, I think the exercise "craz" is over. I don't see nearly as many people exercising as I used to. Why is that? We have an annual race in our town and ten years ago ten thousand signed up. This year the media didn't even cover the event.

-- Maria (anon@ymous.com), February 13, 2001.

No Maria I'm throwing in a lot of people who compared to Calista would be obese. There are a lot of FAT people out there, and you are right they are just waiting on the pill to fix it. In the mean time they continue their addiction with Fat Grams and gorge themselves every chance they get. Its the kids I worry most about.

Can't answer you on the Runs all our local runs have roughly the same number as always and the clubs are packed on mon tues wed and then die off till the next mon.

-- Surfin' Sam (surfin@the.net), February 13, 2001.

Why should someone else's weight bother you so much. Perhaps it's your problem dealing with other's rights to live their life as they see fit (ar ar), that should really be addressed here.

YOU have the problem.

-- (cin@cin.cin), February 13, 2001.

Yeah, you tell 'em cin. I resemble that remark a little too much myself. C'mon, pill!

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), February 13, 2001.

Flint and cin are big and chunky!

And your point is? You do have one...don't you?

-- (cin@cin.cin), February 13, 2001.


There are some that say that eating and gaining weight was an advantage in the distant past [ie, before fast food]. Good times were always followed by bad times. You could live on the stored fat. With no bad times, this becomes a non-advantage. At least this is true in the US. Of course, folks then only lived to be 35, at best, which is what evolution designed us for. The rest is gravy, which is also fattening. *<)))

According to the Atkins diet, which I lost 50 lbs on his diet, you can eat all the fat, meat, eggs, cheese, etc., you want and lose weight! His diet is low carbohydrates, and I testify that fat people become thin people on his diet. It's basically a diabetic diet. It may not be for everyone, but it does work.

My friends come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.

-- kb (kb8um8@yahoo.com), February 14, 2001.

The atkins diet works to shed a few pounds in a short time BUT it is not a healthy way of eating for life.

And just think of all that dead animal flesh you are consuming...yech!

-- (cin@cin.cin), February 14, 2001.

p.s. Z... 35? I would be on my last year here on earth -yikes

Interesting points you make. In some cultures it is still considered phat to be fat

-- (cin@cin.cin), February 14, 2001.

I'm sure that lifestyle has a lot to do with this, but I also think heredity plays a large role. I spent most of my life being so skinny that I heard those "zipper" jokes all the time. This wasn't by design. I'd even drink TWO milkshakes at a sitting to try and put on some weight. NOTHING helped. My mom told me that when SHE was young, her mom fed her buttermilk to try and fatten her up. My mom was overweight as long as *I* could remember, and she said, "Just wait until you have kids. You'll put on weight and it won't come off." So I had three kids. The most I gained with any pregnancy was 12 pounds, and I lost 20 pounds nursing. By the time I'd finished childbearing, I looked like an Auschwitz survivor.

VERY slowly, I gained weight through the years. The hormones that now ensure against bone loss produced a weight gain that puts me about 20 lbs. over what the charts say I should weigh for my height. It's an odd sensation to be overweight. The exercises that once were fun are now work. I feel like the fat kid in 4th grade who couldn't get her legs to swing up to get into the rings.

If I had my dithers [which I don't], I'd rather be 20 pounds overweight than 20 pounds underweight. I like having arms and legs versus the sticks to which I'd grown accustomed. I like being able to wear a sleeveless blouse without feeling self-conscious about my skinny arms. I like being able to wear shorts without feeling self- conscious about my skinny legs.

My kids are all skinny. I haven't seen my oldest daughter in shorts since she was a kid. She wears long pants or a long skirt on even the hottest days. Why? "My legs are too skinny." I know the feeling all too well.
