One Internet Buck says that the Daily Fail swaps the "before" and "after" pictures on their stories (which probably aren't even pictures of the people in the stories).

Wait, I've been to WDW a few times, and have an annual pass to Disneyland. What ride has special "Fat people" seats? I've never seen that.

I noticed this same thing happen at Universal on The Hulk. Picked a guy out of line and made him use a specific seat. I couldn't see well enough to tell what was different about it. I was in line for the front seat (well worth the extra wait on that ride).

People say "oh she'd be so pretty if she'd just lose the weight" without really meaning it. She actually is pretty without the heft.
 
2012-08-30 02:12:33 PM  
And the sad thing is, she's 'just' fat here, not OMG WHALE!

Theme parks are adding wider seats, usually as an option next to the regular sizes. I've seen them at Six Flags here in Dallas. Come to think of it, I've seen three sizes on one ride which swings overhead and needs to be balanced -- biggest ones in the center, slightly smaller ones to either side, and then regular size on the ends.

Disney wasn't an issue on any of the rides. I've never noticed fat seats at Disney in 2 trips there.

Good for her. She looks great now. But there is no way she got that fat on 3000 calories per day as it said in the article. I bet she was eating around 8000 calories a day.
 
2012-08-30 02:26:05 PM  
Me and my buddies were recently talking about how we feel like we eat pretty much anything we want every day and we're not fat. And I asked "I mean, how much food do you have to eat to get obese? That seems crazy that we eat like this and we're healthy." (We do occasionally have a salad if our lunch was a bowl of lard to make some attempt at evening our day out)

All of us pretty much eat two meals a day. Lunch around 11 or 12 and dinner at 5 or 6. And we don't generally hold back. We'll get cheese steaks, Mexican, Chinese, whatever. But then I read things like this. Eating 3 god damn dinners. Literally 1.5x of our entire days food in one sitting, and it makes me realize that people get fat not because of WHAT they eat. I truely is how MUCH you eat.

Eat your cheeseburger. Enjoy it. Don't feel bad about it. But for god's sake don't have 3 of them.

They need them for taller people and just overall larger people too. People think I'm afraid of coasters, but really the problem is my chest and shoulders are so huge and I sit high that the shoulder harness doesn't fit or close at the right angle. I get raddled around and my back will be sore for a week. I don't like that.

As a former tubby who has lost 60 pounds in the last 8 months, I gotta give the girl a hand (and she's hawt!)...

My "come to Jesus" moment was a health checkup that revealed my blood pressure and cholesterol to be WAY (wayyy) high. Now I'm way below average on both counts and am wearing the same size clothes as I did in high school. Walking 4 miles every day helps.

I looked up "Slimming World" (the system she used in Britain) and it looks very similar to Weight Watchers here (what I used).

/Never seen the fat seats at Disneyworld. I live here in Florida and have been several times.

Sometimes they do it to balance out the ride.

// heck, one of the rides at Knots has lights that tells you which batch of seats is overweight/underweight, so you shuffle people around until it's balanced enough to not go wacky when it's spinning you through the air.

I'm a big guy, and I've been to both Walt Disney World and Universal in Orlando many, many times.

The ride seats at Universal attractions are generally smaller than the seats at Disney attractions. I have never had an issue on any Disney attraction (including the roller coasters). At Universal, I have to use one of the few 'larger capacity' seats on their major rides (Hulk, Mummy, Dragons, etc...), and they are still rather snug.

Having never seen this or been subjected to it at Disney, I have to think something isn't right with this story. I'm betting she visited both parks, and mixed them up in the telling.

Based on in-thread testimony, that's likely. Either that, or (even though I'm pretty sure The Daily Mail's website gets 10 times as many hits from the US as it does from the UK), maybe they figured no one there knows what the hell Universal Studios is, whereas Disney World is as well known as McDonald's.

Well THERE'S your problem.

I just don't understand how someone can eat that much. When I go out to eat, I can never finish a single restaurant meal, but I see other patrons putting away a full basket of bread, twice as much steak, more bread, three huge side orders, and a dessert. Hell, if I want dessert, I have to order a kid-size meal to leave enough room... And I STILL have an extra few pounds of beer gut.

I generally just shake my head and go on my way, satisfied with paying half what they did for dinner.

No, it's what you eat. Your diet is probably a lot more balanced than you're saying it is, I bet you're young enough that your body is still burning calories to grow. I wouldn't be surprised if you and you're buddies engage in some sort of physical group activity daily - even if it's racing each other down the block.
All anyone has to do to get fat is eat 2000 calories a day and do absolutely nothing to burn those calories. More typical though is the person that eats a couple normal sized meals a day that are 2000 calories each. And finally you can be active, eat a low calorie diet, and have an underactive thyroid. I know that sounds like a lame excuse, but there is medication to treat it and people start losing weight once they are on it. Unfortunately, doctors are often prejudiced and won't bother testing for it.

Sorry to rain on your smug, but a lot of people are obese eating exactly as you describe. You have been blessed with a good metabolism (or are young), but eventually even two meals a day of not holding back restaurant food will lead to unhealthy weight gain.

I am 5'6" and I topped out at 185 (unusually stressful circumstances). Using weight watchers, I am now at 158 and still dropping about a pound a week. When I get to my maintenance weight, I will still not be able to eat as you describe. Sure, i can splurge about once a week, but it would be very difficult to maintain weight while eating out 5 nights a week, ordering whatever you wanted.
 
2012-08-30 03:33:06 PM  
I do believe it's true she lost 98lbs in a year.

I do not believe it's true that she weighs 126 lbs (9 stone) unless she's 5'2" or shorter (making her husband about 5'5" or 5'6"). She looks about the same size as me, and I'm 15-20lbs heavier (I fluctuate between 140 and 145) and only 2 inches taller. Women's bodies, by and large, when we take care of ourselves, do try to build symmetrically to our breasts. That little girl is very pretty, but she is never going to be a US size 6... which is what a European size 10 is equivalent to. US size 10? Absolutely. But she is far too well-endowed to be much smaller, and those puppies are real.

JWideman: I know that sounds like a lame excuse, but there is medication to treat it and people start losing weight once they are on it. Unfortunately, doctors are often prejudiced and won't bother testing for it.


I had mine removed because of cancer, and my current doctor wants to constantly re-evaluate me to take me off levothyroxine.

Biatch, it's not going to grow back! I'm not going to magically make thyroxine and parathyrin ever again. Apparently they're discouraged to prescribe it, despite it being less than five bucks a month (too cheap for insurance to even bother). I guess we need more fatties to make fun of.

Jgok: FTA: "I used to eat three dinners every evening..."
Well THERE'S your problem.

I just don't understand how someone can eat that much. When I go out to eat, I can never finish a single restaurant meal, but I see other patrons putting away a full basket of bread, twice as much steak, more bread, three huge side orders, and a dessert. Hell, if I want dessert, I have to order a kid-size meal to leave enough room... And I STILL have an extra few pounds of beer gut.

I generally just shake my head and go on my way, satisfied with paying half what they did for dinne


Right now is prime time to view the limits of the disgustingness of human beings. Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden.

The first serving is a normal restaurant dinner portion of pasta (more than anyone should ever eat in three meals, let alone one). Every "refill" is a lunch portion of pasta (or, for normal people, two servings of pasta)

I've personally served a single person five refills on top of their first bowl. And he almost finished the last bowl too.

I think that amount of food would have literally killed me. But the guy I served it to was actually normal-sized for an American. He was just, apparently, entirely hollow.

Oh, and it was ALL "alfredo" sauce too. Which in OG's case is basically slightly-thickened oil. Ick.

MycroftHolmes: BeezyBates: Me and my buddies were recently talking about how we feel like we eat pretty much anything we want every day and we're not fat. And I asked "I mean, how much food do you have to eat to get obese? That seems crazy that we eat like this and we're healthy." (We do occasionally have a salad if our lunch was a bowl of lard to make some attempt at evening our day out)

All of us pretty much eat two meals a day. Lunch around 11 or 12 and dinner at 5 or 6. And we don't generally hold back. We'll get cheese steaks, Mexican, Chinese, whatever. But then I read things like this. Eating 3 god damn dinners. Literally 1.5x of our entire days food in one sitting, and it makes me realize that people get fat not because of WHAT they eat. I truely is how MUCH you eat.

Eat your cheeseburger. Enjoy it. Don't feel bad about it. But for god's sake don't have 3 of them.

/Where was I even going with this?

Sorry to rain on your smug, but a lot of people are obese eating exactly as you describe. You have been blessed with a good metabolism (or are young), but eventually even two meals a day of not holding back restaurant food will lead to unhealthy weight gain.

I am 5'6" and I topped out at 185 (unusually stressful circumstances). Using weight watchers, I am now at 158 and still dropping about a pound a week. When I get to my maintenance weight, I will still not be able to eat as you describe. Sure, i can splurge about once a week, but it would be very difficult to maintain weight while eating out 5 nights a week, ordering whatever you wanted.


I'm 26, my buds are 37 and 32 (I think). Having two normal meals a day (not being healthy), even if they're 1000 each, is still only a 2,000 calorie day. Yeah you can eat something with 78g of fat in a meal, but thats not an average meal. No one is going to get obese eating 2000 calories a day. Sorry. Some might get fluffy, but my point is obese. You have to eat all day long to get obese and reach that 4000+ calorie mark in a day. Which means you're eating a metric shiat ton of food and thats why you're fat.

Three things:

c) You can eat three dinners a day, plus extras, if you're doing a lot of physical work during the day. Your body will need that energy. You will fk yourself up if you don't.

If you're over 40 and you're still eating anything you want and never gain anything, you have a lot of muscle and/or are working out a lot.

If you're under 30 and amazed at being able to eat anything you want and not gain anything, you're time will come.

Not holding back is a very different standard for fat people than for fit ones, that's the problem. A lot of fat people think they're eating normal portions, but when independent observers come in and see how much they're shoveling on their plates, it's nowhere close to normal. Weight watchers, to me, looks pretty close to what I consider normal amounts of food, though a bit less than I would eat because it's designed to help people drop weight.

But you mention metabolism. You do know that that's not an immutable characteristic, right? Up the fiber in your diet, for example, and drink more water.

Really, the magic bullet is to eat normal portions, of a balanced diet (fruits, veggies, up the legumes- filling and very healthy- you can basically eat them until you're full without consequence, lean meats), made from real food.
Cut the processed shait. Cut soda to once a week or less (beer is fine- it's the HFCS you need to avoid, for a variety of reasons). If you drink a lot of soda during the day, switch to tea or coffee (screw the people who say caffeine isn't healthy). Or water. Here's a big one: switch to whole grains. They really are much healthier for you than white bread- you even get protein from the deal, not just sugars! More filling at the same amount of calories, more flavorful, more interesting texture...

Aigoo: I do believe it's true she lost 98lbs in a year.

I do not believe it's true that she weighs 126 lbs (9 stone) unless she's 5'2" or shorter (making her husband about 5'5" or 5'6"). She looks about the same size as me, and I'm 15-20lbs heavier (I fluctuate between 140 and 145) and only 2 inches taller. Women's bodies, by and large, when we take care of ourselves, do try to build symmetrically to our breasts. That little girl is very pretty, but she is never going to be a US size 6... which is what a European size 10 is equivalent to. US size 10? Absolutely. But she is far too well-endowed to be much smaller, and those puppies are real.


With how young her baby is in the before pictures, it's possible that she's still breastfeeding. That will result in a larger bust. Or, perhaps she was when the first three "after" pictures were taken (layers of tank tops are a dead giveaway for breastfeeding). In the last after photo she's definitely looks smaller than the other three, and I can believe 126lbs in that one.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: c) You can eat three dinners a day, plus extras, if you're doing a lot of physical work during the day. Your body will need that energy. You will fk yourself up if you don't.


Actually, no. I'm having trouble finding the citation right now (read about this on an actual, physical newspaper), but there was a very recent study that worked with some hunter gatherer tribes, measuring the calories they burned throughout a day with heavy labor. Collected by measuring chemicals in urine- pretty invasive, really, but they agreed to go along with it. Anyway, they found that physical activity wasn't a big contributor to our body's energy use- most of the energy we use goes into cellular maintenance. While you can dramatically change your exercise level to give your body a shock, that's only going to have an effect in the short term, over the long term, moving to a more active lifestyle doesn't change anything. The ancillary effects of various hormones you secrete and whatnot may help you keep your diet more balanced, but on a pure calories in/ calories out level it doesn't make much of a difference. Your body will adapt to different exercise loads pretty well, without requiring a whole lot more or less calories one way or another.

In terms of long term weight maintenance, it's pretty much all diet.

Ah, here's a link. I read about this in the Washington Post, not the Times, but whatever.

This all sounds good, with just a minor nit: from what I can tell the research is still out on this, but HFCS may get a bad rap in the sense that it may not be worse or much worse than standard sugar, it's just that both are bad. There's some emperical evidence to support that, and a good reason to think that they'd be about the same. (Sucrose is split into a 50/50 mix of fructose and glucose by enzimes in your stomach, which is not that far off from HFCS.) There's also some emperical evidence to support that HFCS is actually worse too. So cut out both. :-)

I dropped 10 pounds or so in large part due to dropping cookies and "sugary beverages" from my diet -- supported in large part by me finding a couple good brands of apples that I could use as a snack instead. (I've never been over 175-180ish at 6', so it's not like I was in dire need of that either.) I also did the switch to whole grains thing to a large extent, though I'm not as enthusiastic about it. I don't actually like the flavor or texture, just tolerate them. I've thrown out a couple loaves that went too far in that direction, and I still go with good (wonderbread deserves neither part of its name) white bread on the weekends as a treat, and I definitely still like it more.

I'm not exactly someone you should pay much attention to regarding food advice most of the time, but what I've found is key is to figure out replacements that you actually like, so that it's not a strugge to stay in it for the long haul. I was always pretty "meh" toward apples for instance, but I spent a little time figuring out which brands I like (mmm organic Pink Lady) and which brands are meh, and I buy the ones I like so that I'll actually want to eat them as opposed to feel it's a chore. Whole grain breads are close enough to that category for me to have had success with it, but only by a small margin. :-)

The person who I was responding to implied that he and his buddies ate out several times a week, and did not hold back in what they ordered. I inferred that as eating normal entrees, which are not known for their balance or for their fiber content.

Everything that you described is a normal healthy diet. It is not consistent with the person I was responding to, who basically accused anyone who is obese of getting that way by shovelling food in their maw and that if you just ate normal restaurant food, you would be OK. I will standby my stance that it is very easy to get obese eating normal restaurant food 5 times a week, ordering normal portions. Even easier if you are over 35.

I have dropped 27 pounds from my high water mark, mostly through very moderate and balanced eating. Smaller portions, reduced carbs. Work out three times a week. If I ate at a restaurant 4 to 6 times a week, there is no way I could lose weight.

I get raddled around and my back will be sore for a week. I don't like that.


I'm only 5'9", but skinny, and those shoulder harnesses hurt my shoulders, too. I guess if I had more padding (read: fat) on my body, they'd be more comfortable.

Also, it sucks to be the lone skinny person in a shared seat...that safety bar only goes until it reaches the biggest gut in the seat, leaving us skinny people flailing around unsecured.

This is all entirely correct, yet it misses the point. It's like telling an alcoholic "just cut your drinking by 3oz every day, and next year, you'll be sober". While true, alcoholism and recovery just don't work out that way. It's a great solution only from the viewpoint of someone who's never been an alcoholic.

Overeating is not a physics problem. It is a behavioralone. You can do calorie in calorie out analysis all day long, but someone who's eating three dinners a night isn't doing it because they don't understand how calories work.

People who weigh 400lb usually know all about whole grains and soda and small portions and regular exercise. It's actually making it happen that's the problem. The actual mechanisms are turning out to be complex. If there's one book the food industry doesn't want anyone reading, it's "The End of Overeating" by David Kessler. It's not a diet book, but it does an extremely good job of explaining why so many people are so fat, and why intelligent people can't follow simple nutritional guidelines.

Well THERE'S your problem.

I just don't understand how someone can eat that much. When I go out to eat, I can never finish a single restaurant meal, but I see other patrons putting away a full basket of bread, twice as much steak, more bread, three huge side orders, and a dessert. Hell, if I want dessert, I have to order a kid-size meal to leave enough room... And I STILL have an extra few pounds of beer gut.

I generally just shake my head and go on my way, satisfied with paying half what they did for dinne

Right now is prime time to view the limits of the disgustingness of human beings. Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden.

The first serving is a normal restaurant dinner portion of pasta (more than anyone should ever eat in three meals, let alone one). Every "refill" is a lunch portion of pasta (or, for normal people, two servings of pasta)

I've personally served a single person five refills on top of their first bowl. And he almost finished the last bowl too.

I think that amount of food would have literally killed me. But the guy I served it to was actually normal-sized for an American. He was just, apparently, entirely hollow.

Oh, and it was ALL "alfredo" sauce too. Which in OG's case is basically slightly-thickened oil. Ick.


I've personally put down four of them in one sitting, of course, that was back when I had the metabolism of a crack-head. Heaviest I've ever gotten is 190 as a 5'9" male. A good chunk of that was still muscle, though.

/is this where I say I need to be at the gym in 26 minutes?
//used to really like olive garden, then I learned how to make sauces for myself.

They need them for taller people and just overall larger people too. People think I'm afraid of coasters, but really the problem is my chest and shoulders are so huge and I sit high that the shoulder harness doesn't fit or close at the right angle. I get raddled around and my back will be sore for a week. I don't like that.


I'm only 5'9", but skinny, and those shoulder harnesses hurt my shoulders, too. I guess if I had more padding (read: fat) on my body, they'd be more comfortable.

Also, it sucks to be the lone skinny person in a shared seat...that safety bar only goes until it reaches the biggest gut in the seat, leaving us skinny people flailing around unsecured.


Dude are you gay? Those things are heavenly.

I like small ones myself. Mine are 32C but I would like a breast reduction.

I'm so glad to hear that! I always wanted smaller ones - A or B, but I'm stuck with DDs. I've lost 17 pounds since May and am down to a size 8 in pants. I was hoping they would shrink but nope, still DD. Now I can't find any dresses that will fit :(.


A mutual friend of ours has a similar problem. The doctor won't reduce hers until she can maintain her new weight for 18 months (+/- 5 lbs). Some medical reason for it, but she is on month 10 now. She is getting really excited.

King Speedy: Give that guy crediting for buying long. Pretty good return on his investment.


Indeed. She cleaned up nicely and kept the better part of the massive rack, which I understand British lads prefer.

AndeePanda: Good for her. She looks great now. But there is no way she got that fat on 3000 calories per day as it said in the article. I bet she was eating around 8000 calories a day.


She was eating 3000 calories for dinner alone. She was eating 3 separate dinners...who does that?
 
2012-08-30 07:36:21 PM  
Three dinners every night?

I didn't know that the hobbits had invented a meal between First Dinner and Second Dinner.

I like how she decided to stop eating so much and made a concerted effort to lose weight instead of, you know, blaming a nebulous "glandular problem."

Good on her, we need more people like this.

I have a similar problem (and worse, actually). I got a foam dressform (Uniquely You) that I fit exactly to myself, and I am finally about to make a moulage/master pattern. That way I can make finally make shirts and pants out of woven material that won't either look like tents on me, or like they're about to explode. I've sewn for quite a while, so this is an option for me.

If you're not inclined to sew, find yourself a good tailor. Get rid of multiple clothing items if you're a clotheshorse, and replace EVERYTHING that doesn't fit (why continually torture yourself?) with a few well-made items made of good fabric. Either have the tailor make some items from scratch, or buy something you love in a big enough size that she'll/he'll only have to take in the other areas.

If you're ever in southeast asia, look at getting custom stuff made while you're there, too. You can get amazing stuff made for dirt cheap in Indonesia and China.

Hope her husband likes permanently saggy, soft, puckered boobs. The rest looks good, but i guarantee theyre a train wreck.

I'm mostly impressed by the fact that she is only a mum-of-one. How often do you see those in the Daily Fail?
 
2012-08-30 10:04:49 PM  
she's still too fat but it's a hell of an improvement and i'm sure her husband is happy with the change, and that she feels a lot better...

/you are welcome NSFW

As much as I enjoy breasts (and I do really enjoy them), hers are just too large.
I know, AVG said a woman's breasts were too large.


Sorry AVG.. as much as I luv and respect ya'... no such thing as breasts that are "too large" - except - when they're fake and look they'd explode at the first hint of a slight breeze.

One of my favorites Definitely NSFW.

NotoriousFire: Elegy: Elegy: probesport: Two16: Too bad she's still overweight. But if she's come this far, from where she was, she can probably reach normal if she keeps at it.

Nice, you'll get a few bites here.

Just look at those sharp knees....



/hot-linked like it's going out of style

You know, I only realize this after I posted that image but.... is it just me or is this biatch gigantic? Look at that tiny window and sink to the right of her!

/wtf is going on with the perspective in this photo?

Pretty sure that's a kid's playset thing, not an actual window or sink. Otherwise that couch is a monster...


Looks like the sink and window are downstairs from her and you just can't see the open staircase in the picture.

I'd like to play with her bags of energy.

What the hell is a "stone" in terms of weight?

#1.) I thought the British switched to metric from Imperial.
#2.) They're not even using Imperial measurements.

No, not kilos, not pounds, but stones. Really?

Size18 gal here and I've never been pulled out of a line, put in any special seat, etc. at WDW or any amusement park (although old parks like Kennywood offer some tight fits on old rides). I call shenanigans. And pie.
