Formerly fat guy here.
I hate fat people who show pride in their condition or make excuses for not losing weight.
All it takes is a little determination.
It's acceptable to be fat when you know it's unhealthy and unattractive, but you don't give a **** because you like food, and you keep that to yourself. If someone tells you that should lose weight, appreciate the advice because they're only trying to help. Respond with something like "I should, but I don't want to" or "personally, I don't think it's worth all that work".

Do you think fat people don't realise they're fat though? Like they don't need people walking up to them, and being like "You need to lose weight" They're fat not blind and stupid. That's like walking up to someone who smokes and saying "You know smoking's bad for you, you should quit." You might have a nice intent but it's just dumb because people know that smoking's bad, they don't need anyone to tell them that. Plus, rule of thumb, if you aren't a doctor and aren't asked for advice, most people are going to get annoyed if you just decide to give your two cents on their health.

I don't know about others, but I didn't realize how out of shape I really was until I had multiple people suggest I lose weight. And it might have been a little annoying at first but eventually I appreciated it, because if no one had voiced their opinion, I would have kept thinking "I'm not that fat".

Really? See I find that weird. Like, I am a bigger girl but I realize I am a bigger girl and could use the weight loss, simply for better health (I am comfortable with how I look, confident even) and it just seems weird to me that you wouldn't notice. Naked people are everywhere these days, it's just kinda shoved in your face (giggidy) you'd think you'd notice how different you looked naked. Odd. Haha. Congrats on your weight loss though It's a great accomplishment!

Thank you. I've never been a confident person so I don't know if I can sympathize. Maybe that's where we're different. After the weight loss, I did gain confidence and life as a whole got easier. That's why I try to encourage people to aim for physical fitness when I care about them enough. I can't say I've peaked yet but I have so much more energy so now I go out more and I enjoy it. It affected me physically and mentally.
But of course, I wasn't satisfied. So if you're truly satisfied then you probably don't have to change a thing.

My goal really is to just eat healthier (not that I have an awful diet right now, not eating meat really cuts out a lot of your unhealthy options) but high cholesterol and heart disease and diabetes runs in my family. So I'm just cutting out the junk cause I don't want any of that . It is really great to hear about how positive your change was for you though! Everyone deserves to feel confident in themselves. I thinks that's why I don't tend to agree with these kinds of posts (like the original picture) bc telling people you know that they're fat generally just takes down their confidence, and chances are if they are obese and getting sick from it a doctor would tell them, which is less hurtful than like a best friend or mate commenting on it I think. (or like I said before, they would notice themselves)

I guess it just depends on the person. No one likes being called fat but I saw it as a reality check and even though it was hurtful, it still helped me. And when doctors told me I needed to lose weight or when the one guy who used to bully me made fat jokes, I thought nothing of it. But when my own mother and my best friend expressed their opinion on the matter, I took a good look at myself for the first time.

You knew exactly how out of shape you were, you just didn't acknowledge it. Both of you made great points though. Personally I feel like its not anyone else's responsibility to remind fat people that they're fat. Unless you're immediate family, just leave the guy alone and let him be fat and/or smoke. They know exactly what they're doing to themselves 99% of the time

I saw a post that there is nothing wrong with the word "fat" and it should be accepted.
Why does it seem like being fat is now like being gay where you're kinda born with and you should be accepted and not an unhealthy lifestyle?
I mean, we shouldnt go out of our way to call every fat person beautiful and that they are true beauty because that's just false hope but we shouldnt just hate on them either.
Also, why is it whenever people always try to be moralfags and say that fat people are more beautiful than skinny people or fat people are truly beautiful, beautiful on the inside, or size doesnt matter, they are only talking about fat girls? I mean make fun of a fat girl that's wrong! But you can totally make fun of that fat lose dude!!!

And I wont go into the details on how I think about "Oh society is messed up and they make it seem like true beauty is a size 0"

I think there isn't anything necessarily wrong with being obese, people should have freedom over what they intake food wise (I'm looking at you, Bloomberg), but it shouldn't be encouraged. Obesity is an epidemic, I don't mean to pull stats out of my ass, but I think the statistic was 75% of Americans are obese. Now the definition of obese has been extremely warped, but that's still too damn high.

I have a problem when parents raise their children to follow that lifestyle creating an endless cycle of obesity. I daresay that's borderline child abuse(ish).

Now some obese people actually do have glandular/mental problems that make them obese, for which they do not actually follow the proper medical treatment for what is basically illness. In that case, we should treat them like someone who needs glasses to see, refuses and walks into poles - "what a *******"

It's about letting those people know that they aren't ugly, ******, disgusting people just because they're overweight. Because without self-confidence they'd never find the drive to change.   
   
It's not saying Fat = Beautiful its saying Skinny ≠ beautiful. That you don't need to be really skinny to be pretty.

In my opinion, I feel as if being healthy is mocked now in our society. People don't feel the need to go outside or go for a run or walk like they used to and I think that if you add the fact that fast food is so cheap, you have a serious problem on your hands. If our society really wants to improve, we have to set more standards in the fast food industry and stop making fun of the "health nuts". If we do this, I think the population of obese people will decline gradually and more people will participate in physical activity, allowing the future generations to be more fit than ours.

What are you talking about?
Healthy people is almost never mocked, and if they are the people that do it are probably judged by those around to hear it...
It is true that it's easy to be fat in a sedentary and unhealthyfood society, but there's so many gyms, so many diets, so many videos to work out, that I believe being healthy is a matter of choice for most people, I chose not to be healthy for example, and I know the health risks that might come in the future but I don't care.
Some people that are overweight and don't have any physical problems that cause it, also don't have the time and the money to buy healthier food or prepare healthy food (as you can't be eating salad everyday) and they have to work most of the day or study as well so they just buy cheap fast food and sleep on their free time.

Fair enough I guess it's hard for me to understand a lifestyle that doesn't involve physical activity. It's been my lifestyle for so long to the point where I would choose it over sleep. That is why I'm saying that it is the fast food industry's fault if they were forced to make things healthier (as in less oil and salt), then maybe there would be a shot at a healthier generation. It is also the fact that we are in a world wide recession that doesn't allow many people to afford healthier food so I do realize why people buy fast food. I just want there to be more regulations on it so it won't be as life threatening .

Fast food is ok as it is, what should happen is not that it should change, it should remain as it is, but as a choice. Having as a different choice for the same amount of money the posibility to buy food elsewhere, if it's fast well all the better... But you have to admit that companies charge you twice just by labeling something as "light" and the government allows it, and we as consumer allow it as well by buying it.

It doesn't matter what you consider beauty to be because every culture and every person in that culture has a different opinion of what's attractive and what's not. All you can say is "Everyone has their own standards of beauty", because nothing is really considered beautiful by everyone.

Those darned fatties, all unhealthy and unattractive to you. If only we could make fun of them and treat them like **** to make them feel bad about being unhealthy. Surely those treating people like **** are the real heroes, and if you're unhealthy you deserve a lot of good bullying, right?

It's not like being unhealthy and having people unattracted to you is it's own punishment.

And gawd, we totally have to do more to discourage people doing something unhealthy with their bodies. Because nowadays every body wants to be fat. I bet they haven't heard a million times before that being fat is unattractive and unhealthy, we totally have to hammer that home some more.

At a primal basis, we really do want to be fat. by neglecting the promotion of a healthy lifestyle, while there is so much surplus surrounding individuals, the rate of obesity will only increase.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so it's certainly plausible that someone can find an overweight characteristic as being appealing. However, "beauty" certainly does not mean "healthy," and people are only damaging themselves and those around them by promoting obesity as a positive characteristic, rather than one that should be corrected, for the better of the individual.

1) In terms of conscious, you're correct, but there are forces that manipulate that conscious. As a species, we have an intense, deep seeded need to consume whatever it is that allows us to survive, and we will do so if given the opportunity. it is why being "fat" is even a thing, because we're surrounded by surplus with little need to actually "survive." it is only through health standards and social pressures do people feel the need to keep a certain shape.

2) I know what you mean, health ads would promote helping people, bullies would serve to punish them. One affects the other, and latent effects, such as the "fat is good" idea, begin to surface.

3) You're wrong in this regard, for there are people who're beginning to treat being overweight as a positive characteristic. I would have an example to show, but I cannot remember where I found it.

The conscious is what were dealing with. People by and large do not want to be fat. The problem is we often want and enjoy a lifestyle that makes us fat. Lots of people are gaining weight due having large appetites, desire for foods that pack in lots of calories, and sedentary levels of physical activity. Their body craves one thing, but the point is you don't have to tell them not to be fat, because their conscious mind already doesn't want to be.

I think were in great agreement on the second point.

If I'm wrong in the third regard I'd laugh. From what I've seen people are just trying to say fat is beautiful like thin is beautiful, to give self esteem to bullied fat girls who feel ugly and give up. A tiny, tiny amount of people doing this does not constitute a promotion of being overweight as better, nor does it prove it's healthy. This definitely isn't a level of promotion that needs to corrected by calling the obese and overweight ugly.

It seriously seems to be more of a socially acceptable norm these days in being fat than actual fit nowadays. Back when I was in highschool, I was the really fat kid behind in my P.E class, I was ripped on a lot and I'd get criticized for my overeating, the fact that I constantly had chocolates in my bag and the fact I was extremely lazy. After highschool when I lost weight and became slim, I wanted to take it one step further a few years later by becoming muscular and lean (basically a sexy body). It required me to workout a lot and to eat healthily. My friends and my own family members would slate me for refusing pizzas or other oily **** in favour of salads and that they'd call me obsessive. I can never win and **** this generation.

Actually nowadays people can critize ANY body type. If you're fat, you're lazy, unhealthy. If you are slim because you watch what you eat you are an obsessed fag who eats rabbit food. If you are slim thanks to genetics, you don't deserve it and should be fat. If you are muscular, you let society dictate what you want to look like. We just can't win...
