I ride a bike 50 miles a day..to stay slim...It doesn't work...I'm 6'2'...still weigh between 200-220...

so you tell me..I stay below 3000 calories a day..my exercise alone should burn more than that....tell M.E. what I'm doing wrong....I know...You ARE clueless...you think you know something...but are sadly mistaken.....good luck with that...:)

Obese women should be proud of themselves, not their bodies.

No, but over weight according to health charts..I should weigh in the low 190s..depending on muscle structure...and my point was..weight loss isn't always easy no matter how much effort you put into it..

Good morning.
Many people do not realize that muscle weighs more than fat.
Imagine two people of the same height, say 6 foot, both weighs in at 220.
One is a couch potato, the other a bulging muscled weight lifter.
You see?
One mans 6-pack of beer is another mans 6-pack abs.

Sheesh America is raising obese kids. The price of food and living is inflating while pay and hours are falling, and the healthy food is the EXPENSIVE food. Look at your ingredients; bread, jellies, peanut butter, yogurt, SALAD dressings,(yes eat healthy, eat a salad!), breakfast cereals, nutrition bars, most of them now contain High Fructos Corn Syrup (HFCS). It is corn syrup that is refined like gasoline and similar in viscosity. It can be 100Xs sweeter than sugar. It is a GMO product and much cheaper for food corporations to use than sugar.
It acts on the pancreas to shut-down insulin production so that your body can't break down the incredibly high levels of sugar in the bloodstream. Chronic high levels of sugar in the bloodstream, that's how diabetes does its damage to all organs/tissues in the body. That also shuts off your 'full button' which results in overeating on a regular basis. And that's not counting dessert...
It's possible without even realizing it that you could feed your child high levels of HFCS all three meals a day, every day and not even realize it. Obese kids grow up to be obese adults.
Consumer awareness has helped create a demand that a few name brands have responded with products that advertise no HFCS, like some bread bakeries have. Jif and Welch's have come out with 'natural' versions of their peanut butter and jelly that are made with regular sugar and thankfully no more expensive than their other products. Little Debbie's uses sugar.
And that's just addressing the HFCS exacerbation of obesity. There are others, like aspartame even in sugared gums---it increases appetite.
To buy the products that don't contain poisons like GMOs growth hormones, antibiotics, or HFCS can be a pricey grocery ticket.
Little Debbie's is a LOT cheaper for snacks for 3 kids than granola mix is. It's all like that.
Buyer, please become aware, and beware.

Your point is moot because it's impossible to eat healthy and exercise regularly and be OBESE.
Come at me brahs
Bullshit. Many people who are trying to eat healthy within their budgets are being chemically sabotaged without their awareness. If you're not drinking and eating hormone-free dairy alone, you've got a growth hormone working against your efforts and those with susceptible metabolisms or thyroid issues will lose the battle.

Obesity is unhealthy, why be proud of that?
Here's a better question, why be 'proud' of your body?
I appreciate my body. My legs carry me where I want to go, my arms accomplish the tasks I wish to perform, whether that be making a meal, drawing blueprints for a landscape design, paddling a kayak, or caressing my husband. Sometimes when my legs carry me where I want to go, my eyes behold great vistas and sights. They see everything I need them to see. And my ears can listen to a friend or loved one, and through them music that stirs the soul can enter. I love my body for what it does for me, it's been very capable and has held-up well over this almost half-century.
But, proud? No. Being proud implies a belief on my part that objectifies my body. That makes it something to be observed and appraised of it's worth based on it's visual appeal to an impossible standard. Being proud of my body creates a future that as I age will cause me to hate my body and mourn the loss of it's 'perfections'. Being proud of my body almost guarantees self-loathing would be in my future.
So I don't think anyone should be 'proud' of their bodies, there needs to be an perception-shift at a deep personal AND cultural level that makes that notion sound absurd to the healthy mind, if this trend of increasing ill-health is to be reversed.

I think ALL should come to love and appreciate their bodies, in action as well as feeling; folks take care of things they love.

if you're happy in your skin be proud of it, if not then make the necessary changes. It all comes down to personal preferences and no one should get belittled for physical appearances, I'm sure we all could've turned out better or worse so just be happy for what you have inside, those are the things we can control.

hey Pais!

this one reminded me of the deep-seated truth..."you are a soul. you have a body."

that's why I like it here, you can pretty clearly see the beauty (or alas, sometimes utter lack of it) of posters' spirits w/o the distraction of physicality.

Hope you're enjoying this LONG weekend!!
