The Decider: Those stretch marks are just so sexy.I thought they were claw marks. I assumed some guy got his head stuck.
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 poundsThis 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 ITEven the lowest Farkers must give her respect. // I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that no one here will make fun of this woman. We've come too far.
log_jammin: I've lost about 30lbs since last Christmas, but I don't think I've ever "celebrated" myself, before or after./I'd still take her home from the bar
astoreth: Seriously? THEY HAVE RUN MARATHONS. Plural. Their goal is not to lose weight, it is to RUN MARATHONS.
This text is now purple: Sleeping Monkey: You aren't born fat, you become fat through sloth and poor dietary choices.You are born fat, actually.
pagstuff: As this thread tapers off, do we get to vote on who was most sanctimonious?
Optimus Composite: Mid_mo_mad_man: Sleeping Monkey: Normalizing obesity in our society does far more harm than good. It should never be seen as acceptable to be fat. You aren't born fat, you become fat through sloth and poor dietary choices. It's good to have self-esteem, but put down the soda and go for a walk.Fark off. I like curves and a broad a$&. You can keep those stick girls. You slap one on the a$& and risk breaking their hipWhy do people always pull that crap when you say you don't find fat girls attractive? Why do the chubby chasers start screaming about how if you don't like fatties you must be lusting after those models who look like heroin addicts and would fall through a crack in the floor. Why do they have to go to the other extreme? Well let me tell you chubby chasers something, I don't find the facebook girls body attractive, and I don't find Kate Moss body attractive either. Here's a little something more my style.[jumpingjaxfitness.files.wordpress.com image 395x493]
theflatline: astoreth: serial_crusher: 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.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.Seriously? THEY HAVE RUN MARATHONS. Plural. Their goal is not to lose weight, it is to RUN MARATHONS. I'm pretty sure they've come in under 5 hours, but still. Jebus, how many skinny people do you know can do that? Hell, I know even more normal-sized folks who eat crap and can't muster a 5k, but no one would give them shiat for being "unhealthy."I am skinny and can do a 5k fairly easy, even at 42 years old. Hell, I climbed to the top of a glacier and peaked down a live volcano last year. Do I consider them great feats, nooo.And doing a marathon in 8 hours is nothing to brag about.
machoprogrammer: Overfiend: Shut up you cock.At least she can lose weight - you won't be able to lose being an ahole.You sound fat.Growing up, I was always the skinniest, scrawniest kid on the playground. I always heard "You are so skinny!" and crap like that. As a boy growing up, that was about the worst thing you can hear. I ate and ate and never gained a pound. In high school, I'd eat fast food several times a day and didn't gain weight.So I really don't give a fark if people told her she was fat. People say shiat like that all the time and either get used to it or work to change it.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: 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.Maybe if you don't want people commenting on the choices you make about your body you shouldn't actively parade it in front of tens of thousands of strangers.And, no, it's not okay to celebrate being a fat-ass. It's one thing to point out that people shouldn't be stupidly obsessed with being thin, but you're not not just chubby, you're obese, and that's unhealthy. It's no better than people being proud to be ignorant. People view your body negatively because your body is a negative aspect of yourself because you keep it in an unhealthy state. You also seem to have a terrible personality and a persecution complex. Did people bully you over them too or did they develop separately?You're just the whole package, aintcha?
peachfish: Burr: vermicious k'nid: It SHOULD be condemned. Being unhealthy is a burden to society, not just the overweight person.Huh, she doesn't look unhealthy in that picture.I know some women who are built "broad". They never seem to have any weight related health issues.Hell, one I know has a job that requires lots of physical labor. She may look overweight, but she gets plenty of exercise and eats fairly well.People come in different sizes and this "if only they would put down the fork" mentality is a load of shiat.I'm quite healthy. I have great blood pressure, good cholesterol, decent endurance for someone with asthma (allergy relayed). I used to go to the gym 5 days a week, but now that I have 2 small children I don't have time. Instead, I take the stairs at work all day; I try to get a minimum of 20 floors a day minimum. I never eat fast food, I mostly cook from scratch. I watch portion sizes and track my carbs and calories most days. I dont drink sugary drinks, or even most diet drinks. I'm 5ft 6 inches tall and I weigh 205, no matter what I do. But tell me some more how I'm lazy and all I do is eat junk food and soda and my poor health is costing you money, cause we fat people just haven't heard that enough.
Sleeping Monkey: America's obesity epidemic isn't just the result of people driving their cars a block to buy 104oz sodas, its also the inevitable result of a government that subsidizes the fattiest, crappiest food available, and corn; lots and lots of corn. Solving the problem will take a lot more than just making fun of fat chicks, we need to elect leaders who aren't beholden to the companies that produce this junk, so they stop getting subsidized, so the cheapest food available isn't 2000 calories a serving.
odinsposse: I'm not going to pat someone on the back and celebrate them for smoking a pack a day so why would I do the same with someone who's obese?
SilentStrider: She's cute. I'd hit it.
Sleeping Monkey: Because you can change your sexual preference through diet and exercise, so it's exactly the same thing.
vermicious k'nid: She don't care what people say about her weight, it makes her SASSY!
babysealclubber: Gee, I wonder what might be the cause of her self-loathing
IlGreven: Sleeping Monkey: Normalizing obesityhomosexuality in our society does far more harm than good. It should never be seen as acceptable to be fatgay. You aren't born fatgay, you become fat through sloth and poor dietary choicessin and temptation. It's good to have self-esteem, but put down the soda and go for a walkget a good woman like your mother would want you to....sounds familiar...
serial_crusher: What kind of "extreme measures" did she take exactly
babysealclubber: She looks like tons of fun.
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.
