It does suck when you accidently hit an organ or something (thats what I assumes happens at least). Its awkward, but I can't imagine its more awkward than when you cant tell whats lumpy mattress and what isn't

And in the second picture she is "layering" her clothing. A common way to dress in order to disguise the fat. So which is it, proud or still a bit ashamed? We know the
answer to that. No one wants to be fat.

Just because being overweight has become the norm doesn't mean it should be celebrated.

I notice that there seems to be a lot more tolerance for the fat-gutted women than there is for the fat-gutted men. Sexual hypocrisy makes your argument invalid.

astoreth: serial_crusher: MOST OF ALL, this picture is for me. For the girl who hated her body so much she took extreme measures to try to change it.

What kind of "extreme measures" did she take exactly, and why did she jump to the extreme measures instead of just maybe not eating so much, and going to the gym once in a while.

Because it doesn't work for everyone. I have overweight runner friends who have completed marathons and eat right, and they never lose the weight. Some people are going to be pudgy no matter what, just like some people can wolf down all the junk and pizza they like, never exercise, and still be skinny as rails.


Are your runner friends women that are (probably) 40lbs overweight like this girl? Remember, muscle weighs more than fat, so if they're going strictly by the numbers then they are always going to be "overweight" if they're muscular.

johncb76006: Those stretch marks are just so sexy.


In her habitual state of runaway gluttony, she has eaten so much food that her gut is expanding to the point that her skin must make special adaptations to keep her internal organs inside her body. Just the thought of that, combined with the pure aesthetic characteristic of dark and jagged blemishes running down her midsection, makes her unattractive to me. There must be something wrong with me.

notmtwain: WARNING: Picture might be considered obscene because subject is not thin. And we all know that only skinny people can show their stomachs and celebrate themselves. Well I'm not going to stand for that. This is my body. Not yours. MINE. Meaning the choices I make about it, are none of your f****** business. Meaning my size, IS NONE OF YOUR F****** BUSINESS.
If my big belly and fat arms and stretch marks and thick thighs offend you, then that's okay. I'm not going to hide my body and my being to benefit your delicate sensitivities.
This picture is for the strange man at my nanny's church who told me my belly was too big when I was five.
This picture is for my horseback riding trainer telling me I was too fat when I was nine.
This picture is for the girl from summer camp who told me I'd be really pretty if I just lost a few pounds
This picture is for all the f****** stupid advertising agents who are selling us cream to get rid of our stretch marks, a perfectly normal thing most people have (I got mine during puberty)
This picture is for the boy at the party who told me I looked like a beached whale.
This picture is for Emily from middle school, who bullied me incessantly, made mocking videos about me, sent me nasty emails, and called me "lard". She made me feel like I didn't deserve to exist. Just because I happened to be bigger than her. I was 12. And she continued to bully me via social media into high school.
MOST OF ALL, this picture is for me. For the girl who hated her body so much she took extreme measures to try to change it. Who cried for hours over the fact she would never be thin. Who was teased and tormented and hurt just for being who she was.
I'm so over that.
THIS IS MY BODY, DEAL WITH IT


Even the lowest Farkers must give her respect.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Holy crap you people suck this morning.

She's happy, who cares.

I went through puberty the same year I joined cross country. I ran 500 miles that year (not including whatever I ran for track in the spring). I stopped drinking pop and eating fast food, mainly because running on an upset stomach sucked.

And I gained weight, not all of it muscle. Puberty is a biatch, hormones all a crazy. Thankfully, I didn't have anyone *personally* tormenting me, other than myself wondering why the f--k I wasn't skinner than other girls on the team I could outrun... then eventually slapped myself awake and realized that if eating healthy, not drinking unnecessary calories, and being absurdly active got me to that weight, then so be it.

Eventually things settled down, but holy crap.

In summation: f--k you, f--k you, you're cool girl, f--k you, I'm out.


Thank you.

(1) She's intentionally posting the photo in places whose entire purpose is public comments (FB, for instance). We didn't randomly start mocking her, she brought it up.

(2) People in her health insurance pool probably care, since they're subsidizing her unhealthy habits.

She is well beyond pudgy. And unless you increase what you eat a lot whiel training for a marathon, you will lose weight.
 
2012-10-23 09:50:07 AM
Give her a break guys she has a glandular disease that causes her to be fat, so she actually has a valid excuse. Plus her disease causes her to hardly menstruate, and almost never ovulate, and be infertile. So plenty of chubby chasing barebacking fun. One of the few who has a valid excuse. Though her spike in hormone levels might be the cause of the real problem, the attention whoring.


As another poster said the real sexism is from fat chicks for men they are looking to date. Read any dating site and most fat womens descriptions are these "Gorgeous outgoing blond who is a tad bit on the fluffy side, there is just more of me to laugh and I am not changing this hips for nothing! Looking for tall, dark, handsome, full head of hair, large shoulders, chiseled torso, someone who can throw this big gal around. Sorry, not interested in guys who do not take care of themselves, or have baldspots."

/wife is hot and not too thin or too fat, they only people who say she is skinny are fat chicks. Wife isn't an AW with her good looks.

They're similar in build, if not chubbier. And they're constantly active. Myself, despite regularly running 5K's, weight training, and eating well, have found it impossible to lose any substantial weight postpartum. Not looking for advice, I've done everything. It just ain't happening. Even so, blood pressure's low, cholesterol levels are "excellent," and am pretty impressively strong. Sometimes it's better to stop beating your head against a wall trying to have the culturally approved body type and just accept what you've got.

Oh wow, I was there for this. Cool.

I'm gonna re-post this from another forum I went trolling on because her pic was what inspired it and the backlash was epic, "And for all the idiots that go "HURR HURR FATTIE", I'd love to see their pictures. Chance are me and my fat arse are dating, have dated and/or slept with faaararrr sexier and more successful than you. If you ain't some fox whose tail I'm chasin', I don't give a rat's butt what you think about my tattooed thunder-thighs. Nine times out of ten the guys who pull the "you sound fat" line are the most boring looking socially inept dime-a-dozen Joe Shmoes on the planet and I don't think they realize how freakin' funnny and sad that is. Anyone can go to the gym for two weeks and have those abs and toned arms that look great in photos with disproportionately skinny legs and a boring backside, but honey come back to me when you can deadlift 450lbs and back up that 'better than you' attitude with some wide shoulders, thick muscles and a full body that gives you the right. In the meantime? That big-bodied boy is exactly who I'M going home to. All 200lbs of me."

2012-10-23 09:52:11 AM
She's markedly overweight. If she wants to be that weight, fine. But she's carrying too much fat and too little muscle to do so in a healthy fashion. And all of the self-confidence and self-esteem in the world won't change that fact. Is it her business if she wants to be like that? Sure. But let's not pretend that it's normal, healthy, or that most people aren't attracted to that look. And it's not simply because people don't like fat; it's also because the overwhelming majority of people who look like she does look that way because they take in too many calories and they exercise too little and that lifestyle says a great deal about the mind within the body. It says she doesn't care about her health. It says she lacks self-control. And it says she over-weights the short term pleasure of eating and not exercising versus the long term health and appearance benefits of a reasonable caloric intake and exercise. And she will be less healthy and likely die younger as a result.

In simplest terms, it's not just that people don't want to be with a fatass, it's that they don't want to be with someone who exhibits all the signs of someone who is, internally, the kind of person whose behaviors generate that type of body.

And this.

Just think, if we can convince heart disease and diabetes that being fat is now normal, we will be in great shape! I have no sympathy for fat people, as anyone can lose weight. Calories in - Calories out. If that is negative, weight loss. Instead of fries, eat vegetables. Instead of soda, drink water. You will lose weight.



I hate sugar. Never drink soda. Never eat candy. Love vegetables. Excessive regularly and vigorously. Yet I'm still fat. I grew up on a farm and worked heavy manual labor from sunrise to sunset yet was still fat in high school.

I've spent my entire life feeling that I am less of a person because of my weight.

Even at my lightest I was never slim. The inability to reach my goal weight drove me to give up on taking care of myself for a long time. I'm finally getting myself healthy again. It took becoming hypertensive to do so. In order to motivate myself, I have to understand that goal weight is not important. It's about health. My BP is finally back down to where it should be and that what is important. Not some jackasses opinion. I'll never be thin and I'm OK with that.

F you sir. For some of us, it's not easy. Offer encouragement, not criticism.

Mid_mo_mad_man: vermicious k'nid: karmachameleon: serial_crusher: Fear_and_Loathing: She is within the norm for women.  Horrors!

Just because being overweight has become the norm doesn't mean it should be celebrated.

It also shouldn't be condemned.

The problem with today's society is that too many people conflate their personal choices with morally righteous choices for everyone else. Fark off, in all seriousness. The world would be a much nicer place if people would just mind their own goddamned business.

It SHOULD be condemned. Being unhealthy is a burden to society, not just the overweight person.

Or maybe everybody should mind their own business and let people be


And not dip into other peoples' Medicare contributions? Why should the fit subsidize the unfit? Darwin, farker.

I attended a conference on medical care and read a related HMO CEO report recently, and senior healthcare providers admit that they really can't see how the current health system can go on much longer. The overweight in America are government-subsidized, to put it bluntly. When that subsidization dries up, the fatties will literally be left at hospital curbsides unless they are wealthy. What can't go on, won't go on.

It is worth questioning how fast they're finishing those marathons. I usually don't dwell on time or PRs, because the important part of running is that you're having fun; but if your goal is to lose weight, an 8 hour marathon isn't really going to do much in terms of achieving that goal.

OK, fair enough. Question for you though.... What are your thoughts on universal health care? I've got no problem whatsoever paying more in taxes so that those who can't help themselves can get help. But along your lines of me minding my own business, doesn't it become my business when I have to pay for bad behavior and habits? Why should my tax dollars go to help a Type II Diabetic who is only that way because they can't put down the donuts? Why should I be forced to help pay for lung cancer treatments for a smoker?

"Society" is defined as a relationship with one's fellows. It's our job as a society to take care of one another, not celebrate or encourage bad choices and behavior. Certainly people shouldn't be bullied for whatever issue they may have, but the line above is brilliant - it shouldn't be celebrated in the name of self-esteem. It's like the kids playing sports today in leagues where they don't keep score or declare winners and losers. Sooner or later that's going to come back and bite the kids in the ass when they get in to the real world.


Counterpoint, you live in the U.S.. You have never paid one penny in taxes towards universal healthcare. It's none of your farking business.

See theincidentaleconomist.com for actual numbers on this (post titled "blame du jour"). They do detailed analysis of what makes US health care more expensive than everywhere else, and prevalence of all conditions (not just porkitude) accounts for just a tiny bit of that. (We're spending 2-3 TIMES as much per person, after all).

Worrying about fatties' contribution to collective health care expenses is like worrying about PBS's contribution to the Federal budget. It's something, but tiny in the grand scheme of things. To take the example above, type II diabetes is cheap as hell to treat (Target will hook you up with a month's worth of metformin for $4, before insurance).

The image came to be posted after Stella, a NYU student, spotted Brandon on the street in Manhattan and asked if she could take a picture of him.

In return, he asked to take a picture of her - and later posted the picture of her in a bikini which appears on her blog.

And I'd like my health insurer to adjust rates for smokers, people who eat microwave popcorn or anyone who has (unless it's just kernels in a brown paper bag maybe with a bit of oil, then you get a bonus discount because you're not a total idiot), anyone who eats at a fast food restaurant more than once a week, inactive people (skinny or not, since slightly overweight but active people are healthier than skinny inactive people), anyone who lives near a coal power plant, anyone who has attended a rave or a Phish concert in the past, bikers who commute while inhaling exhaust, anyone who honestly liked that Friday song because your stupidity means you're more likely to get in an accident that I have to subsidize...
