No one who loses weight because of someone else ever keeps it off. Give it 10 years. She'll pack it back on and then some. The fact that she let a drunk stranger dictate how she should look and that she sees Hooters as a point of pride speaks volumes about her self esteem.

Cyberluddite: A year ago, Cearra Swetman was out to dinner with her family when a drunk stranger made a comment about her clothing - a Hooters restaurant t-shirt. Ms.Swetman, who nearly weighed 250 pounds at the time, says that the man cracked, "You don't look like a Hooter's girl I've ever seen." As WFTX FOX 4 News reports, the Florida woman decided to use that insult as inspiration.

Maybe she should've use the simple fact that she weighed 250 lbs. as inspiration, rather than instead waiting around for some random rude drunken insult to motivate her.


This. Fat people are always saying how shaming does more harm then good, but this article suggests otherwise.

/Now you can feel good about being a jerk.

Snarfangel: Just as an idle thought which in no way has anything to do with the article, but I wonder what they would call a restaurant featuring male hunks, assuming women had the same sex drive as men. "Stiffies"?



Got news for you. Plenty of us women out there that have the same or higher sex drives than men. The reason you don't see restaurants catering to us is that we never have any problems finding guys that want to get naked for us.

TerminalEchoes: But she's still butt ugly even 130 pounds lighter.


You're kidding. She was cuter fat.

You're going to put a years worth of effort in, and your goal is to be a Hooters employee?

You need to set yourself some higher goals.  Seriously.

Why is it that after losing a significant amount of weight, women feel the need to do something completely stupid to their hair?

I must be a jerk to make better women decorations?  Interesting.

No, the heartwarming part would've been if she tracked the guy down once she'd lost all the weight and kicked his ass.

WTF Indeed: Because getting a job as a Hooters girl is something to aspire too...





/Yes, congratulations, you went from fatty mcfattus to a serving wench who the only thing she has to offer the world is showing off her tits. Way to go for the low ring.

Now all she needs is some lessons in posture so she quits carrying herself like a sack of potatoes.

Losing over 30 lbs. is the best thing I ever did.

I had a fight with one of my boyfriends and he called me fat.  Not anymore.  7 lbs. to original goal; but I decided to take off an extra 6.

I hate food, I hated being fat and every piece of clothing that falls off me brings me joy.  Any "fat activist" who claims differently is a liar.

That is the worst before / after I have ever seen.

I'm also surprised Hooters hired her, seeing as how she looks like a boy with tits.

Apparently it is, as long as you're the kind of girl who wears a Hooters t-shirt when you're out to dinner with your family.
