Pilikia: This is good advice, but I think that ship has sailed. Have to grow the tree I have. She is turning into a little bit of a gym rat, though. She's wayyyy into theater, has a beautiful voice, so we had a frank discussion about how shiatty directors are about judging women by their looks. Her short-term goal is to slim down enough where she stops getting cast as the mom or the old lady on the bus. I know, it's shiatty, but it's what is currently motivating her.


As long as it's not rooted in self-loathing, any motivation is good. Good luck to you and to her.

/unfortunately as a theater kid she's destined to be nuts at any size :)

Son of Thunder: Pilikia: I have a teenage daughter who's knocking on the door to obese... and the last thing she needs is more affirmation, more "Honey, you're beautiful just the way you are." She certainly is, and smart and funny to boot, but that's not the point. The point is if she keeps going the way she's going she'll be 250 lbs with diabetes by the time she's 30. So no, no more farking self-esteem coddling. No farking plus-size princesses and no farking special rights for fat people. It's time to end this shiat.

Darn right.  You just go ahead and lie to your daughter and tell her that she's not beautiful unless she fits the adolescent fantasies of a collection of sweaty internet neckbeards.  Make sure to tie her sense of self-worth to her ability to look like people who won the genetic lottery, have enough money to hire full-time trainers, and then get the pictures of them airbrushed.

Archae hippy: TheBigJerk:  I'm just hungry, all the farking time.  Stomach-churning, stabbing-pains, thinking about food every five minutes HUNGRY every goddamned second I haven't just stuffed it full of heavy stuff.

Still, acceptance is not the solution, better chemistry is.

I got into some really bad habits around work with the office ladies bringing in baked goods/candy all the time (I suspect since they are pretty big they want everyone to be).

Now when I get a craving for something, I go for a walk.  A 2-3 mile walk.  It usually stops the craving and I have lost about 20 lbs since I started in September.

Of course it helps that I'm kinda the boss and can disappear for half an hour every now and then. try it.


So you are losing weight LIKE A BOSS!

Before we have Princess Tubbington take the screen, how about we first....

1) Have some positive adult male role models in Disney films?

2) Have some positive male characters who are scrawny geeks?


There's already a positive fat female character... it's the freakin' Fairy Godmother.

Frankly, I'm so glad that we're not going to have to deal with the princesses in my household.  My position is that we live in a democracy, so why indulge the whole princess thing?  If we're going to hold up an idealized view of the past, why not encourage kids to be more like Spartans?

tlars699: Why not have a princess be magicked with the overweight curse? (Not her fault)
Have all the princes once lining up to marry her, reject her for her appearance?(We still feel empathy for the princess)
Then she goes on an adventure treadmillto help herself find a way to end the curse.
She goes to the villain's castle, and is given friendly face, forced to sleep on a fluffy mattress.
She overhears a conversation, and finds out they don't believe her story because no princess could be her size. So if she can't feel the tiny lump in the mattresses, she'll get beheaded for pretending to be royalty.

She outwits them. In the meantime during her stay, she participates in bunches of activities that get her out of the castle, and she ends up losing parts of her curse (which turns out to be given to her to show her what it means to be royalty: independent, level-headed-ness, wisdom, strength of will, etc.)

She never gets back to the same level that she was before the curse, but she isn't ashamed of her curse anymore, because she finds out that she is much more than just a pretty face.

And she becomes Queen, without a prince in the picture.
Or throw a prince in there, but have him be super skinny, and super lazy at first, but they like each other and help motivate the other reach their goals.

The Princess and the Pea. Done.

Five Tails of Fury: Holy jesus, this thread is depressing.

So people want girls with actual, realistic body shapes to be included in a style of film that provides role models for kids and early-teens. And y'all are responding with "OMG fattie fat mcfattersons everywhere go take your fat selves and jump off a cliff, you'll splash nicely at the bottom."

What the f*ck is this, a gathering of fashion magazine editors? Photoshop experts afraid of losing their jobs?

Obesity isn't healthy at all, but neither is girls eating a lettuce leaf and puking their guts out in the school bathroom so they can be as skinny as whoever the anorexic-of-the-month on the cover of Vogue is. "Plus-sized" these days is what used to be healthy and attractive until some c*ckwaffle decided that if you can't play the ribs like a xylophone you're a fatty and how can you possibly eat that whole half bowl of salad don't you know you're disgusting?

I'm all for more realistic body shapes in kids' films. A couple of curves here and there aren't a bad thing compared to a waist you can fit a bracelet around.


Why stop there? I say we demand complete and utter realism in our fantasy movies. No more magic, no more strange creatures, no more lands that don't actually exist.

The next Disney Princess movie should be about Jennifer Christianson, a borderline obese 14 year old who faces a number of "wacky" trials and tribulations while attempting to buy school supplies at the local mall in Topeka, Kansas.

If that doesn't scream "Blockbuster!", I don't know what does!

LisaSimpson: Can we have something in between embracing skeletal thin and obese?  Can we tell girls it's okay if you don't look like everyone on TV, but it's also important to eat healthy foods and get exercise?  Can I size 4, 6, 8 be okay?  That some people have larger frames than others and thus they will weigh more?  But it's still not healthy to weight 300 pounds?  Going one way or the other isn't helping anyone, and I feel like people don't seem to get that.  Also cartoons have proportionally wrong characters on purpose, so we don't have this weird uncanny valley.  Everyone calm down.

/It's already bad enough in "realistic" video games.

p the boiler: seriously - eat healthy, go to the gym - it is not hard

I used to stick up for fat people (because I was one) but since I figured out the only reason I was fat was because it was all my fault I have no empathy.

We will point at a smoker and tell them how much they are doing to their health - yet tell a fat person eating at Olive Garden that they should pass on the bread sticks and do some crunches and people get all shiatty.


Back when I used to smoke, during one break a coworker WADDLED up to me to tell me, "You know, those things are bad for you!"

She was coming back from lunch with some other coworkers, so I did not reply what I was really thinking.
