HoratioGates: You can lose weight. It's hard. Sometimes you backslide. I've lost about 30 lbs, but I've got a ways to go. What got me serious this time? It wasn't watching my friends get diabetes, it was watching a friend who had gastric bypass get his life back after losing the weight. All the sudden I decided I'm too young to be feeling like I ran a marathon after one flight of stairs. I'm up to regular 2 1/2 mile walks and managed a hilly 4 miler the other day (although it left me pretty sore the next day). I could lose the battle still, but I'm hoping to keep walking past the desert cart without stopping. It was not someone telling me I was fat though that got me motivated though. I know that I'm fat.

That said, when you are a public figure, you've got to figure someone is going to pick out your every fault, and turning it into a public back and forth only encourages it. I hope she loses weight for the sake of her health and her self image, but I also hope this guy crashes his bicycle and has the seat ride up his butt (as long as it's clearly nobody else's fault. I wouldn't want a personal injury lawyer to get a chance at a lawsuit.)


Good on you. I'm lucky enough that the college I started attending at the end of August is built on a steep hill, with all the available parking about a half mile from the buildings I have class in (4 days a week). I've lost about 4 pounds in five weeks, which is cool. Not what I wish it was, but it's better than how I started. I've been able to do a ~2 mile hike a few times a week, just don't have the discipline to completely cut out snacks and beer. Because damn it... beer is awesome. Also I must be getting old, cuz all the previous joint injuries seem like they act up at the drop of a hat now.

BTW, If the lawyer injures himself on equipment, won't he just sue the manufacturer? Hell, this guy sounds like he'd sue a town for a .0001 variance in the sidewalk that 'caused' him to trip and break his [insert bone here].

The fact that it got twisted into bullying is a bit silly. It's unwelcome and may be construed as rude or tactless but unless he sent her 20 emails, it's not bullying.

/he wouldn't like me either but I'm not on tv.
 
2012-10-04 04:59:28 AM
She's obese. She needs to fix that (who wants diabetes or other crap like that?). He probably needs to mind his own damn business.

/ if she loses the weight, hubbs might want have sex with her for once.

What bothered me about that video is that she goes through the whole thing criticizing the man's letter and doesn't say one word about why hasn't lost the weight. And she would make an excellent example if she makes a serious, publicized effort at loosing the weight even if she's not terribly successful in doing so.
 
2012-10-04 05:36:24 AM
I love how in her anti-bullying rant she mentions how she has three daughters and we need to set an example for them on how bullying is wrong. What kind of example is she setting for her kids by being a fatass who will most likely die in her fifties. She also talks about how appreciative she is of all the positive outreach she has received as if only positive feedback is valid. So apparently if one person sends her some constructive criticism in an email he's an asshole who should be criticized on TV but if five hundred people send her positive feedback it's great and should be celebrated. You can't have it both ways, you have got to accept the good with the bad especially if you choose to be a television personality.

The guy did not bully her. He merely stated that he believed being a fat person on TV every morning sets the bad example that being fat is totally acceptable. We all realize that a person smoking or taking pulls off a flask on a news program would be derided. So some destructive lifestyle choices are okay while others aren't? Also by equating choosing to be fat with race and sexual preference she showed her ass and lost any high ground she might have had. Instead of taking responsibility for her own actions she chose to ridicule a private person for what boils down to looking out for her and her family's best interest. If anyone was a bully in this situation it is her.

With very few exceptions being fat is a lifestyle choice whether people with very little impulse control would like to admit it or not. She lives a terribly unhealthy lifestyle of her own creation and no amount of sanctimonious televised woe is me bullshiat can change that. If she had the thick skin she claims to have in her piece she would have owned up to the fact that she is fat because she chooses to be fat and if he has a problem with that well then tough shiat. Instead she choose to lump herself in with a bunch of genuinely bullied people who have no control over what they are bullied for. Because of that all I have to say about her is that she is a self important, attention whoring, denial ridden, over-eating eating bully who would rather publicly shame a private citizen than accept responsibility for her own behavior and show him up by losing the weight. 

/don't care who her brother is

Funny. If she was male and twice her size, no one would say a word about her size. It's only because she is female anyone cares. Such hypocrisy. There are so many incredibly butt-ugly and disgusting looking men on TV, I mean so many. In TV shows, on the news, in variety shows, but no one cares, no one says a word.

Only women seem to be held to this standard of artificial beauty. How enlightened of us all.

Yeah, nobody's ever called Chris Christie or Rush Limbaugh fat. They are. See I just did. There is no double standard, just fatties looking for excuses. You sound like you said what you did.

Being fat is a choice just like abortion. Thank god in America both are options as they should be. If you want to abort a fetus or eat five cheeseburgers tomorrow that is your choice as it should be.

Don't worry about it. All it is is a bunch of PC liberals pretending being fat is the same as being black or being gay. It's all nonsense. Right? Or is choosing to eat pork fat everyday the same as being black? Gay is a choice just like salad or a burger, right liberals?

Good afternoon sodomites,

My name is John Wilkescombe III, and I have a very strong dislike for every single one of you. All of you are starving working-class imbeciles who spend every second of your days by looking at idiotic photographs. You embody everything that is disagreeable in the world of to-day. To be quite frank, are any of you experienced in the art of courtesy toward the fairer gender? I mean to say, that I find that besmirching your fellow man is very much pleasurable for your insecure kind; however, you have succeeded in making it a more vicious art. This ranks among the worst of the vices a man can commit.

Show me everything with which you beasts can violate me. I am perfect, very much so indeed. I served as the captain of my private school cricket team, and my Latin and Greek are impeccable. What pastimes do you have, apart from "loitering in the streets all day, wooing working class wenches"? I am also a very affluent man with many estates, and I have a most attractive and wealthy lady friend (Recently her Father blessed our marriage; it was VERILY of monetary benefit). But in short, all of you are sodomites with nothing else to look forward to than spending the rest of your vile existence in the gutters of L--

How much do you actually understand about the human metabolism and the human genome?


On metabolism, I guarantee it's more than you, since I'm a fitness nerd who spends my free time reading peer-reviewed papers about this and other topics.

On the human genome, I'm afraid you're going to have to elaborate on how genomics is all that relevant to this topic. I don't believe they have yet found the "fat gene" you can blame in order to absolve yourself of personal responsibility for cramming a bunch of pizza in your mouth.

AFAI am concerned, we need to start calling people out on being fat. South Park, once again, made a pretty good point tonight - the bar is getting set too low. That lady is really fat. Maybe if someone had spoken to her about that in the same way they might talk to her about drinking, smoking, or unprotected sex she wouldn't be that way.

Instead she's going to live miserably and die early because people throughout her life were politically correct when they should've been honest. Now she's an adult - an adult with habits that are hard to break, and a body that is accustomed to having about 70 extra pounds of excess fat as its baseline.

PallMall: God on him.. why the fark are you buttholes defending the lardo? If she's a fat monster, then she needs to eat less and exercise. Nothing wrong with pointing that out!


I say this as a fat monster; you are 100% correct. The girl is fat, and she needs to lose weight. She should have said "This guy is right. I need to get in shape and be a better role model for young women" She has the chance to do it on tv so others can see that it can be done. And unlike biggest loser or those other shows where people drop 10 pounds every week, she can do it over the course of a year and invite her viewers to do it with her. She missed a chance to turn this into a career boosting segment.

Dancin_In_Anson: * FLASH*...Someone else's weight is none of your goddamn business.


Didn't you get the memo?

Now that tobacco's been ground into a mangled butt on the macadam, lard-ass is the new tobacco. For example, see NYC's recent ban on sodas larger than 16 ounces. The costs on society to service and provide medical assistance for the byproducts of the problem is obviously "Second-hand Lard-ass".

Interestingly, this brings to mind another analogy: Guns kill people like forks make people fat. Since this guy is a "bully" for wanting to take away this heifer's fork, doesn't this mean that gun control advocates are bullies too?

I don't disagree that she is overweight. But he attacked her as her role as a TV personality. That TV personality responded. What's the problem with that?

In the long run, the percentage of people who can lose more than 10-15% of their body weight and keep it off is statistically insignificant. Tons of research has been done on this. They all come to the same conclusion.
 
2012-10-04 09:11:06 AM
Why do we always look for someone to shiat on so we can feel better about ourselves ?

It's not politically correct to harass gays or blacks, so society now slams the overweight.
