Can probably benefit with another 2 or 3 stones dropped.

BunkyBrewman: BizarreMan: BunkyBrewman: 'He walked right up to me, turned round and said, 'Look at the state of you. You're disgusting,' and threw his drink at me.

Ummm... what?  So she's saying she was just standing there, minding her own business and some random stranger just picks her out of a crowd and dumps his drink on her?  I'm glad that she lost all of that weight and now feels much better about herself, but... that story?  Not saying shenanigans, but....

I don't know, the fact that it happened doesn't surprise me, the fact that she wants to meet the guy because he goaded her into losing weight strikes me as odd.

People say rude things to fat people all the time.

Oh yea, the fat lady can go on a diet and lose weight so that makes it better?  Still totally uncalled for.

I agree.  People can and will say rude things to other people all the time.  Yup.  Uncalled for.

But honestly, the guy just walked up to her unprovoked and dumped a drink on her?  I raise an eyebrow to that.


Me thinks she may have had a buzz on and hit on him.
 
2014-02-09 01:59:07 PM
I hope she'd at least shake his hand, and then refuse to sleep with him.

How much does the average annual British health club membership cost in thruppence?

thamike: British systems of measurement are almost as arbitrary and ridiculous as their tabloids.


There's something to be said for one's units of weight based on the King's testicles.

As for the story: "O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us/To see oursels as ithers see us!" I mean, the guy wasting his drink was just a louse.

People say rude things to fat people all the time.

Yesterday I was in the local natural foods co-op buying some things.  (not to be hipster, but because they've got an excellent selection of bulk herbs and spices.)  The cashier says to the fat white woman in line in front of me "don't take this the wrong way, but from the side I thought you were Honey Boo Boo's mom."

First off, anytime you start a sentence with "don't take this the wrong way" maybe it shouldn't be said because it most likely will.  I have to wonder how the cashier would have reacted if she were told "don't take this the wrong way, but you look just like the maid on the Jefferson's".

Cue thatsracist.jpg.  But what is the difference?

Oh yea, the fat lady can go on a diet and lose weight so that makes it better?  Still totally uncalled for.

I wonder why some people feel the need to make compqrisons like that, or why they think you would be flattered to bear a resemblance to a celebrity.

I can't condone behavior like this, and fat shaming has been shown to be largely (hah) ineffective. However, a big part of living fat is denial, and there are certain cases in which a nasty comment or an unpleasant encounter throws a switch. The denial mechanism goes on the fritz.

I know, I'm living proof. Five years ago I was about 230 pounds (at 5'7"). One night, I guy I was seeing said out of the blue, "You know, you've got a nice face and great tits. Why don't you lose some weight?"

It took a little while to sink in, but I did eventually drop a few pounds. In January 2010 I started working out with a friend who is a personal trainer. At the time I weighed 212. Some of the weight came off, and when I moved away two months later I took up running. Over time I dropped a total of nearly 60 pounds (and became a distance runner.)

It's the Daily Mail. That alone is great reason to doubt the story's veracity.

Good idea. Nothing bad could possibly happen if someone's self esteem is based on falsehoods and delusions.

Who cares, nothing to see here. ...

Woman loses weight, gets recognition, and looks hittable for the first time in her life.  Who cares?  The guy who threw the drink in her face, him I'd like to have a chat with and see what the real circumstances were...  I  see the conversation going something like this:

"So this cow comes up to me, randomly in the bar, drunk as hell, and puts her hand on my chest.  She says, "Comin' back to my place to play?"  Looking deep into my eyes and licking her lips, she reaches her cloven hoof down towards my crotch..."


/holy shiate, a talking cow!

Read the whole thing. She wasn't fat growing up. She stopped "dancing" at 17 and expanded. Then it devolves into ad copy for some diet plan. She really just returned to her aged 16 ways, but this packaged program can take credit.

Well 8 gills is about a litre.

 If your still unsure the unit of measure, vis a vis the gill.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: 34 posts and nobody brought up their glandular condition that causes them to be fat even though they eat one pack of saltine crackers a day?

Fark, I am disappoint.


Jamming shiat into your mouth is a "glandular condition" now?  This why I come to the intertubes, to learn important doctor stuff.

/ OK, I'm confused!  A stone equals how many farthings, again?

Actually, I appreciated his honesty and the complimentary part of his comment. He might have been a little tactless, but I really think he meant well. Things didn't work out for other reasons, but if I ran into him I'd probably say thanks.

The entire Daily Mail is ad copy.
 
2014-02-09 02:36:10 PM
... My previous message should not be interpreted as an insult to the poster before me, but instead as a satirical response to the woman in the article.  Dang context, needing clarification.
 
2014-02-09 02:38:09 PM
The Mail wants their knuckle-dragging readers to feel good about verbally abusing fat people, instead of feeling shame for their childish bullying.
