Obesity is unhealthy, why be proud of that?
Hey - Don't believe I've ever run across you before. How about you ... ever seen me out here before or have we ever spoken? Got a profile ... any socks ... many other gray names?
Whaaat? I'm curious like anyone else may possibly be. You sure have created a winner here.

Are you suggesting it's just women? Please tell me about your mother and her health and weight.
I know my brothers were so turned off to my mother and I've been freaked out with fear I ever resemble her, that they became very shallow in their thinking about this issue and hurt other women because of it.

There is a very fine LINE drawn between healthy and Obese. Please tell me what you know of that. This is a very sensitive topic to many since societies way of viewing and profiling people across the lands has always been quite shallow indeed.

I've read through this a bit and I must say to all of you ... If we are offended at all, then why is this discussion still at the Top of most discussed? Whatever .. hope you're all enjoying yourselves.

See Ya

PS, I'll read answers ... but don't find it necessary to speak again. Thanks

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!!
Hi Debra, it's been awhile! A lovely surprise to 'see' you, too. The freedom that a lack of physicality enables has always intrigued and fascinated me about this place, too. I've been amazed at what some folks have chosen to put forth in this medium, sometimes in a way that commands my respect and admiration, amazed at the moments some posters have opened my mind and stretched my world a little, and then amazed and stunned, that some have nothing but ugly to say. I guess we've all given ourselves permission at some point, at some level of provocation, to be ugly at least once, that is human and healthy minds strive to grow out of and above it. Others, once they cross that line it's like they're swirling around with the toilet water-----in a toilet that never flushes, lol. But folks reveal themselves, all the same.
I am relaxing this weekend, thank you. I hope you and yours are having a nice one, too.

I think you've made a good point here that attitudes about obesity can stem from a young man's perceptions of his mother.
I have found that sons with loving mothers who were/are heavy, who had healthy relationships with their mothers, tend to be lax even about heaviness in their own choices of mates.
Sons who had dysfunctional relationships with self-absorbed/centered mothers,(about the only thing that'll make a bad mother out of a woman), who were/are heavy associate her weight with more negative/undesirable personality traits and tend to abhor them.

Heredity plays a part in everyone's looks...it has nothing to do with the person...NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!eati ng is not what makes many fat...they are born into it....fat people in their genes...they can't help it...If you don't like...leave them alone...lol.
The true person is the one inside...if they choose to hide..you'll never know them...geniune and true...is the only shot at knowing them....

If you look at the Rubinesque figures in 16 century art....yes! Guys love meat on those bones! I knew gorgeous girls that only dated fat men "Chubby Chasers!" Everyone thought the reason I got divorced is because my California big breasted, long blonde, long legged, skinny wife got obese. She divorced my arse! She is still sexy!...and even heavier.

Yes depression makes you very thin....the medication does the opposite. My gorgeous ex wife said she would rather be obese and alive over having a gorgeous cadaver in her coffin.

Well let's add "obese men" to that question, and then state – well why would they be ashamed of them either? We all are what we are, Dude quit caring so much what people look like! I've met nasty and nice people on both sides of the obesity dividing line.

I fail to see why one should be proud about letting one's self go. That doesn't take any effort, unless you count the effort of over eating.

So long as you are reasonable about it and not comparing yourself to some unattainable photo-shopped super model standard, I also personally think a little self-shaming is healthy and motivating.

Not just for women, but men too.
