SusanIvanova: you wouldn't be liable to drop dead at any second, the way an 800-pounder would.

How do you drop dead if you can't get out of bed to begin with? Isn't it, roll over dead?

Pinko_Commie: FTA: If American women could choose between having Jennifer Aniston's bikini body or a million dollars, three out of four would take the money and run.

Yes the article said Jennifer Aniston - which no thank you, I'd rather take the money too in that circumstance. I've been poor and thin for all of my life and no complaints yet. I'm not a real 'material girl.'

It's the quality of life that counts, and most people count only rich or poor only as the value of their 'monetary assets.' I would hope more people would look at the quality of their living arrangements, education of their children (that includes science kits, books, taking them places like zoos, nat'l parks etc as well as school expenses), free time to pursue hobbies and sports etc... and start to count that as being 'rich' and having 'investments' made.

If your life is work for the buck then sit on the butt you probably will want the money and need the liposuction. Not to say you shouldn't put some money away, but if that is what you live for it's not much of a life.

It doesn't say you have to be fat if you don't want to look like her.

Poor and thin. And I'm fine with it. My husband and I have been married for 27 years. He's a good guy. Just can't catch a break with his job; he has lost many jobs when the companies he worked for went out of business. He's an IT dude.

Lost his job in December because the company he worked for lost a one million dollar judgement against Medicare and the company is going out of business.

There is a lot more to life than luxury cars, diamonds, designer clothes/accessories...

FTFA: Fifty-seven percent said they considered themselves overweight, 30 percent admitted feeling "uncomfortable and ashamed" about their bodies, and 37 percent said their fondest wish was "to be thinner."

Given the responses, does this mean that the women polled are lying to themselves about their actual weight (vs. perceived), or about how much it bothers them?

"These days a lot of women get themselves to the gym and don't let themselves go. They don't lose their sexual appetite. Meanwhile their husbands get fat and stop putting out. A lot of unhappy wives out there."

Thank you for this. I run 4 miles daily, am the same size I was in high school and was married to a man who, long ago, stopped wanting anything but companionship from our relationship. After years of begging him to address the problems between us, I moved out. It's not always the woman who opts out of the marriage, mentally OR physically.

/new man who wants ME as much as I want him.

Egalitarian: oh here we go again.

These days a lot of women get themselves to the gym and don't let themselves go. They don't lose their sexual appetite. Meanwhile their husbands get fat and stop putting out. A lot of unhappy wives out there.

And then there's the whole thing with women hooking up with lazy men, the woman gets the higher paying job, and has to work extra hard, take care of the man and clean up after his ass, and possibly raise kids too. I know a number of couples in this pattern, I can think of seven (7) pairs off the top of my head.



And the reverse is true.

everyone dies alone.

you can only enjoy the lack of loneliness when you're alive. when you die...that's it. no one can go for you or with you. you must go it alone.

and for the record...some of loneliest people i know are married and some of the least lonely people that i know are single.

....225 pounds is unattractive and a moderate health risk. 800 pounds is grotesque, disabling and inviting death before 40. There's a huge difference between the two.


uummm NO~! unless you're over 6ft tall and big boned woman, 225 is obese! I'm sorry to see that modern America has become so fat and obese a 225 lbs women is still considered OK.. it is NOT OK!!!! You're fat biaaatch!!!

Growing up I can say that I hardly ever see an adult woman(previous generations) over 200lbs but nowadays these whales are everywhere!

Something must've happened to America in the last 25 yrs or so! I blame fast food and fad diets!!!!
