Fark should have avatars of our weights.

Look, no one is going to see a movie about a bunch of fat blue aliens. Besides, their bird things that they fly around on wouldn't be able to carry them.

Do the skills include how to hold a 2 liter bottle of soda when your hands are greasy from eating an entire pizza?

I suppose having a 3D model of your body composition would be a definite step up from a mirror, but based on this study it doesn't sound remotely close to providing that kind of aid.  Sounds more like they created a person in the sims and put it on a treadmill.  A lot of wasted effort if they could have just shown a video of pretty much anyone running and eating correctly and gotten to the same result.

The WII fit did this.  You weighed the hell in, and your avatar was adjusted appropriately.  My sister started working out with the wii, graduated to other stuff, realized that her avatar was still fat so she weighed in again.

This works.  It's basically public shaming, but it works.

Lol. Wouldn't that be interesting? I wonder if heavier people would tend to be more or less aggressive, or mostly the same? Would fark have more an aspect of escapism? Or would thin people tend to be more dickish because privilege?

And the war on fatties continues. No news yet on how this effects all the nutritionally deprived haters.

We should be weighed in every time we post, and it would be appended to the post.

Yeah, really, fat people are fat because they don't understand that they're fat.  Jeebus.  Another study conducted by morans.

I'm not. Technically I'm only overweight, not obese on the BMI scale, but this ain't muscle, that's for sure.

Screw you man, because when the Kleggs show up they won't be able to haul our fattie assess off to their processing plant. It is much easier to kidnap you fit bastards after they stun you.

I exercise regularly, but honestly my healthy weight's due mostly to genetics. That shouldn't stop you from trying to be more like me, though.  Want "thin privilege"? Inherit better genes, fatty. Start today!

There'd be no room for text if Farkers were forced to use 'fatty' avatars. And the servers would overload if there were 'sperger' ones.

They would buy pizza for all the managers when we had our quarterly meetings at my old job.  There would be enough for each of us to have 2-3 slices.  Helen, a gal from Georgia, would take that paper plate and stagger slices of pizza on there until it was about to buckle.  Then she's waddle that table-sized arse over to a precarious plastic chair and stuff it all 6-7 slices in her maw, sticking two at a time face-to-face like a pizza sandwich.  Ugh.  Clearly a gland problem.

I think it's a caught-in-the-wild image of someone sharing a picture of their dinner.

This exact picture is what helps me choose something else when I'm craving a snack that's bad for me.

I can't imagine being happy that way. How do you get that far over normal and obviously not care enough to do something? Walking, bathing, even sleeping seems like it would be hard. It would be like being a prisoner in your own body.

My 5 year old daughter is helping me to lose weight.   She has just started doing karate at school and likes to practise with me and it goes like this..


Daughter: "Mum bow with your eyes looking forward"

I follow and bow with my eyes looking forward.

Daughter:  "Mum pretend that some one is going to kick you in the head, you need to block them like this"... shows me how to block.   " OK I will use my noodle to hit you"

She then preceeds to use a long foam purple thing to hit me and I have to block

Daughter "It hit you - you have to do 20 squats,  do them now"

It proceeds like this with various levels of squats, jumps, pushups if you get hit by the noodle.


Also yes I could tell her No and if I was inclined to do so I would.

I believe hormones have a big impact on people's eating patterns.   I'm usually fine and can regulate my eating so that I do not consume to many calories.  But just before and at the very beginning of menstruating I want fat and no an apple will not do it.   That is the time I eat KFC for the fat and I tend to like a nice big steak..   Yep I get a very big craving for fat and meat.
