hmmm maybe after the surgery he is 300ibs but before that I would say he is closer to 400 ibs.
Either way if you're lik 6' 6 300 is NOT that grossly obese..  how tall is Christie anyway? 6' 2" or something? he looks like a big guy. I remember him towering over Obama in one of the pictures.

I won't crap on him for working on it.

I do find surgery to be an extreme option though, I doubt he really tried very hard to lose it by traditional means.

5 foot 11.  There's no way in hell he's 300.  I'd guess at least 350.

I can sympathize, when I droped from 370 to 285 in about 3 1/2 months, *I* felt svelte and skinny as hell, and of course those closest to me DID comment extensively about it, but  of course 6'2 and 285 still ain't skiiny.  It's why when i recently droped another 40 I was taken aback by how many people commented on it, and not just friends, but people in line at the bus, check-out clerks, even the guy running the omelelte station at a place I go to brunch about once every six months or so.   To me 40lbs was chump change so barely worth noticing, but the difference between 240 and 280 is, to the outside world, apparently much more noticeable than 370-280...

"For me, this is about turning 50 and looking at my children and wanting to be there for him," the governor said. But he admitted that he has yet to see any "great metamorphosis" since his procedure in February.

I have a cousin who used to weigh in at about the 400-pound level, although who knows really, that's just my vague estimate. Recently, my aunt said, "Have you noticed that N has lost 100 pounds?"

I didn't notice a thing. And I don't see the fat cousin very often, so you'd think the difference would be even more noticeable to me. So she's still.....Chris Christie's size.

Well if we didn't point and laugh, he'd be as fat and unhealthy as he ever was, so we are actually helping him, and in turn, his future political career.

Which I'm sure you don't have a problem with, being the biggest GOP apologist on Fark.

What's the biggest thing you did to drop that extra 40? I work out now, barely eat a meal a day, and still can't get below 290 at 6'3".

I consider that surgery to be self-mutilation and medical malpractice personally, but I seriously considered it at my biggest, because working out (1/2 hour areboic 1/2 weights minimum ) every day and easting a low fat diet for three years hadn;t done a damn thing but help me lose like 3lbs.   Thank god I learned about Low-carb diets when I did

It's all about how you carry the weight. I have gained about 50 pounds in the past 4 years and really only my face and my gut look any different. My limbs have very little fat.

I saw him on the T.V. last night, he had his trousers pulled up over his belly just under his moobs. a sweet-ass salmon colored collar shiat and black slacks.  sharp as a  tack.

According to WaPo, Christie is 5' 11", which makes sense, as he is visibly shorter than the President.

www.powerlineblog.com

By any measure Christie is morbidly obese. Irrespective of his future political goals, he should lose a hundred pounds just to minimize the risk of sudden death.
 
2013-05-16 01:47:38 PM
300 lbs? yeah and that's just his ass.

Seriously though his official bio says he is 5'9". Looking like that the dude must weigh in at at least 400 lbs.

If someone is 300 lbs at 6'6" then (s)he is that grossly obese.

Only 6 inches taller than me and almost twice the weight makes him/her a fat person.

At a recent check-up, the doctor didn't initially believe the weight that the nurse had written down, but I could confirm it was accurate.  The doc shrugged and said "really? you don't look it; you carry it well."  (6'3", 255; going to try to get down to maybe 230, roughly my college weight, in the next year or so.)

I think that makes sense. To non-fatties, a fat person is a fat person. The degree of fatness doesn't change the fact that the person is a fatty. People will say "good for you!" and mean it but they are thinking "he/she is still fat". When you go from a fatty to something that appears to a non-fatty suddenly you are being mentally slotted into a different category . Whole different kettle of fish.

Yes...it is. When I was obese no one noticed my weight loss until I got down into the middle of the 'overweight' range. From there until I dropped into the normal range I got a constant stream of compliments. Watching my obese SiL after her surgery was like this. The first 100 lbs was barely noticeable. The next 50 more so, and the final 50 was amazing.

Same thing I did the first time: Make sure my proten intake is over 100 gm/day and Drop my carb intake to under 60gm a day not oncluding dietary fiber.   It works like a charm every time for me .  Exercise helps a little, but at least for my metabolism (and given your measurements I'd say we have the same one)  dropping the carbs, leads to lower insulin production, and when your body's glucagon level is higher than its insulin level, it starts making series 2 eicosaniods (micro-hormones) one of which is a signals for the body to burn stored fat.  Once that turns on viola, weight starts dropping almost like magic  (and bcause it is all fat, as opposed to fat, bone and muscle whichall get eaten when you take the restricted calories approach-the weight loss is more dramatically noticeable body-shape wise) .   If you've tried that and it doesn't work  like it used to,  Try adding Chromium Picolinate and Vitamin D supplements to your diet.  Chromium re-sensitizes the body's insulin recpetors meaning you need to make less, and Vitamin d (which according to my doc most adults who work indoors are deficient in) plays a critical role in how effectively your body can use the insulin you produce (so when levels are high enough you need to make less)

Since this is looking like a weight loss/why you're fat thread, I've got a question.  I wake up and eat bread at night, and it's keeping me from dropping the last 15 pounds.  I'm close to awake, but I can't quite seem to not eat.  It isn't like crazy ambien eating, usually two slices of white bread. I've had sleep evaluations, no dice.  I've tried drugs up to ambien, no dice.  Tried changing sleep hours, giving up caffine, literally gone to talk to the Buddhists on the mountaintop for meditation tips, no dice.

Any advice?  It's making me crazy.

Well technically starving yourself IS a good way to lose weight however the problem is not consistent starvation but rather overcompensating and gorging on food after starving a day or two.

Aside from surgery there is really only one practical way to effectively and safely lose weight that doesn't involve 100% willpower like exercising, etc....

start buying nasty food when you go grocery shopping. Don't buy food you like to eat rather buy food you DON'T like to eat.

liam76: "It's not as simple as, 'Push yourself away from the table and you'll be fine.'"
Yeah, it is that simple.


Almost.
1. Don't be hungry. Eat 3 meals, incl. breakfast. Stop eating when the hunger is gone.
2. Reduce carbs as much as possible.
3. Drink water. Check calories on other beverages! Beer, Coke and orange juice will set you back.
4. Get plenty of sleep.

Those 4 simple rules replace any other tips out there and guarantee a life long healthy weight.

/Exercise is optional - it's healthy for many reasons, but not needed for reducing weight.

All those things make it easier, but if you eat the same types of food but eat less you will lose weight.

Stop buying so much bread. Or put it in the freezer, that way you'd have to put it in the toaster or microwave before you eat it.
