That video, the way it pisses me off...    
   
Those people are the reason I am working to lose my 80-90 pound excess weight.    
   
I will be DAMNED if I turn into one of those... those ridiculous moocows who are LYING, outright LYING to themselves and making themselves feel better about being the way you are    
   
It's great that you're happy but accept the fact that you are doing massive damage to your body BEFORE going to these things. Admit you have a problem first before you decide if you can live with it. And if you can, that's fine, but don't sit there and tell the world you're perfectly healthy and exercise everyday. Don't go saying being thin is bad, or that you're a victim of society. No, you're a victim of your own lazyness and it is YOUR fault that you're fat, not genetics, because genetics DOES NOT turn you into a simmering pile of pigfat. Husky maybe, bulky, but not a glob of mucus someone hacked up onto the sidewalk.    
   
That comes from years of denial, of saying it's too hard to work out so you won't, or saying there's no point in working out because you won't lose that much weight, at the rate you're going even five pounds off is going to benefit you.    
   
Put down the 			*******		 ice cream. Go for a walk. Just a walk and work up to a run. Eat an apple.Eat as much protein as you can so you don't dive facefirst into that swimming pool of empty calories you call a treat.  I will personally have you write down everything you've eaten in a week to show you the RIDICULOUS amount of food you're eating. I will show you that it's cheaper and easier, not to mention saner and logical, to put that 			*******		 fork down or put it into a salad for once.    
   
What you are doing belongs on my strange addiction. What you are doing is an addiction that is hurting you as much as smoking. At least smokers don't deny its destroying their lungs.    
   
IT'S NOT THAT 			*******		 HARD TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT.

its a question about how deep you dig your own grave.
the deeper you dig, the harder it is to get up.
the fatter you get, the harder it is to get fit-

Amen, I was once bordering 240lb and I hated it so ******* much. Right now I managed to get back to 217 and I'm slowly climbing back up. I found just doing it everyday without question helps, just don't ever miss a day unless you have to, and it gives you a kind of momentum to keep going.
User avatar #438 to #408 - ohpee (06/20/2014) [-]
I can vouch for this, I started 3 weeks ago and when I started I weighed 100 kg, idk how much I weigh now but I feel a lot better than I used to. Working out everyday is nice.

Im a skinny guy and I try my hardest to actually put ON weight. So I can see where fat people are coming from when they say it's hard for them to lose weight. Sure it may be possible but for some people it's way easier than others and I think we should all take some perspective on that.
User avatar #334 to #329 - stifflimb ONLINE (06/19/2014) [-]
Also one of the ones that barely can gain weight, but it's not the same as problem with losing weight, people who have easy time staying "thin/skinny" can be cause that the amount of energy the body takes from food is very little and that allows us to stay thin despite of unhealthy food and such, but to lose weight it's as he say, you use more energy than you take in and you will lose weight, it's more a matter of will and not body when it comes to lose weight.
And before anyone gets butthurt yes it's also a matter of will to gain weight.
I mean to say it's not the same thing but to change it it's still a matter of will.
User avatar #336 to #334 - lolzordz (06/19/2014) [-]
Yes but my point is, these fat people would have to work harder than normal people to lose weight, same way I have to work harder to gain weight. life isn't fair and everyone should consider these things before spewing hate. it's childish to think we're all given the same life and that our choices alone could represent who we really are.
User avatar #356 to #336 - stifflimb ONLINE (06/19/2014) [-]
Not harder than most people, they should watch what they eat while doing training, lots of people keep track of the amount of calories they eat and how much they spend, if it was easy everyone would do it.
Yes, our choices decides how we turn out, you dont get fat in a day or two, if you been overweight your whole life it's cause of your choices.

User avatar #450 to #402 - stifflimb ONLINE (06/20/2014) [-]
I get it, but I dont agree with it, overweight people cost a lot to society just like people abusing cigaretts and alcohol often cost a lot too, and they do it cause of a choice they made themself, and that angers people since we dont get why we should pay for their life styles.
And overweight people dont really have to work harder than most people to lose weight, they lose it easier since they got so much of it, a friend of mine that was (still is a bit) overweight started checking more what he ate and talk walks almost every day, it might have taken a year but he lost almost 110 pounds (50 kg), it took time but it was not hard as soon as he started to work for it.

The fatter you are, the faster you lose weight. It's hard to not eat as much, but everyone can do it.. I literally eat so much I cannot stomach any more and cannot put on any weight. I've been stuck at 140 for a year.

It really depends
At their stage of fatness, its is EXTREMELY easy to lose wight.
However, as you start to lose weight, it gets harder and harder.
This is why some people are stuck at "chubby'. When you're fat, it's easy...
User avatar #380 to #329 - kerfufflemachtwo (06/19/2014) [-]
That is true. However, a large chunk of these people simply don't want to put in the effort.

I mean, look at her response. "It's really hard to exercise."

Well, duh. Doesn't mean you should just give up on it.
#194 - ludislavonac (06/19/2014) [-]
Yup, losing weight is pure maths. You need to consume fewer calories (or burn more) than you eat, it's as basic as that.    
3 months ago I started doing the P90X3 workout and downloaded the myfitnespal app to track calories. Went from 79 to 72kg (that's about 14 lbs of weight lost, for you american guys) and I feel fit as hell, my muscles are starting to grow and I finaly eat proper food.   
My 90 day workout cycle is over tomorrow, and I think I'll just start it over once more to lose a few more kilograms and then I'll start packing some muscle. gif is random

At the end of the day, everyone still deserves some level of respect. I cant imagine being ridiculed because of ones weight, but at the same time, being obese isn't something that should be advocated or protected.

my sister's friend has been one of the most active people i know for as long as i can remember. She eats right and doesn't spend much time just sitting around, but she has always been a very large girl. she's the rare 1 in 1001446 fat people that actually just cant lose weight The rest of y'all are just some lazy ***** I can say that because i'm a fat lazy **** too

The thing about exercise is that the more you do it the easier it gets.
User avatar #416 - AlanbalMIT (06/20/2014) [-]
there are people who have thyroide disease and tend to get very fat if they don't burn the fat fast. My neighbor (female) has it and is slim (and hot) as hot because of the same, there are excuses.
User avatar #425 to #416 - ronyx (06/20/2014) [-]
That just means she has to exercise harder.
User avatar #429 to #425 - AlanbalMIT (06/20/2014) [-]
but the "omg muh disease" ain't an excuse.
User avatar #431 to #429 - ronyx (06/20/2014) [-]
Yeap. I mean, to me it just sounds stupid to say "I can't lose weight because of medical reasons" when in fact you just have to work harder.

The reason its hard is because you're burning energy...you know, exercising!
User avatar #388 - mrbuu (06/20/2014) [-]
exercise is hard when you are fat. when you are in shape is not that bad its actually fun. i mean jogging 4 miles as a warm up during football then weight lifting later and you pass out on the bed wake up like you sleep on god bed and you never felt you sleep better than that moment in your life.
User avatar #390 to #388 - ihawk (06/20/2014) [-]
I'm in very good shape and cant remember the last time I had fun working out

Its usually hard as ****
User avatar #391 to #390 - mrbuu (06/20/2014) [-]
then you need to explore what you like. for instance i hate running,but i still do it,but thats so i can weight lift and not be a jointless MM body builder who would lose to a 100lb kid in a fight. (talking about those guys who bench like 1000)

Genetics can make you more inclined to be fat but it will not make you fat, anyone can lose the weight if they try.
User avatar #74 - carthos (06/19/2014) [-]
Then she's saying it's not true, that it's impossible for some. And that's nothing to do with previous laziness? I mean if you wait too long with exercising it's not genetics if it doesn't work, you're just too lazy
#11 - cobrien (06/19/2014) [-]
He's right about anyone being able to do it, but it's different for every person and some people don't realize that. I would watch skinny people in high school guzzle down sodas, eat nothing but junk, and play video games endlessly, and I had to practically starve myself AND exercise just to get to the point where I looked average.
User avatar #14 to #11 - pheonixinstinct (06/19/2014) [-]
ya im like that but i run at least 5 miles a day and go rock climbing on the weekends.
#17 to #14 - cobrien (06/19/2014) [-]
It's actually a really cool video. It touches on what I said a lot. Some of the fat people in the video really make fat people look bad. It makes me sad.
User avatar #451 to #17 - pheonixinstinct (06/21/2014) [-]
ya i watched it a while ago. the people in it do kinda make fat people on the whole look bad. dont get me wrong i know its harder for some people, one of my better friends was huge and lost a lot of weight when he started running with me but it took a lot of dieting for him to and he struggles with it still, but its possible.
#202 - robuntu (06/19/2014) [-]
I know people like to hate on fat people, but his answer is retarded. It's technically correct, but it doesn't make it any less retarded than the 9th grader who goes around slapping people and saying, 'BUT I DIDN'T TOUCH YOU!' Technically, he's right. Physics and all that jazz: physics.stackexchange.com/questions/23797/what-does-it-mean-for-two-objects-to-touch

But it's a pointless thing to say.
#215 to #202 - justtocomment (06/19/2014) [-]
What do you mean? His answer is a basic truth that can be applied universally. Burn more calories, eat fewer calories. There are plenty of other supplements and nutrients that can be involved, but at its core it all comes down to energy in and out like he said.
I was 310 pounds just a few months ago, and was on the upward slope. And I was too lazy to lose the weight. I made excuses, said I was healthy as I was, pretended that losing weight was too hard and I needed to go slowly about it... Then I lost a good job, got stuck with a ****** minimum wage job, roommate moved out and I was suddenly so broke I couldn't afford to keep eating as much. Having about 6 dollars a week to feed myself, and working a physically demanding job (as compared to the desk job I had before), I was suddenly down to 215 pounds. I'm still at that weight, because I continue to watch my caloric intake now that I have more money.
It's not comfortable, it's not fun, and it's not easy. The only reason I even managed to lose the weight was because the option was taken out of my hands and it was no longer up to my own willpower. But the fact remains that it is still just about energy in and energy out.

TLDR -
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_calorie_is_a_calorie

In 2007, a group of Wake Forest University researchers published a report from a six-year longitudinal study in which they fed two groups of monkeys the same number of calories and dietary levels of fat, with the only difference being that one group was fed foods higher in trans fat. The high trans fat group gained 30% more belly fat compared to their lower trans fat counterparts

In 2012, the Journal of the American Medical Association published the results of a clinical trial performed by a group of researchers that investigated whether dietary composition affected weight loss. The researchers concluded that the type of calories consumed does affect the number of calories burned by an individual

Science biatches!
#227 to #215 - robuntu (06/19/2014) [-]
BroScience is no science.

You had an experience. That doesn't invalidate all other experiences. Example: I eat peanuts. I'm fine. Therefore, people with peanut allergies cannot exist.

Can you see why that argument doesn't make any sense?

There are physical limits, and yes, that's why if you stop eating you will, necessarily, lose weight. But we're not talking about theoretical limits....we're talking about regular life.

First, you can't possibly know how many calories you take in. The human digestive system isn't perfectly efficient. When you eat, some amount of calories is wasted and comes out as crap. How much? Unless you're crapping into a bucket and testing it, you don't know.

Second, you can't possibly know how many calories you are burning. At best you've got very rough estimates based on averages printed on a website. When you run a mile, how many calories do you burn? *IT DEPENDS* on a lot of factors. And it changes. What you've eaten affects how many calories you burn while you do nothing. Past activity affects how many calories you burn while you sleep.

Third, lots of other factors come into play. Chemicals and hormones...give an old man testosterone and without instructing him to change his diet or exercise, he'll gain muscle mass and lose fat.

Bottom line is you don't know how many calories are going in, you don't know how many calories are going out, and there are many additional factors that determine how you feel and how you perform physically, including how many calories you burn while performing activities.

#233 to #227 - justtocomment (06/19/2014) [-]
You don't need the exact amount as long as you know intake is less than output. Just because you aren't testing every last gram of your body for calories doesn't mean you can't know what you need to do to lose weight. You're over complicating the issue as if it invalidates it. Knowing your BMI allows you to know how many calories you burn just existing every day. If you take in fewer calories than you burn, you lose weight. If I know that cup of yogurt has 90 calories in it, I know I need to burn at least 90 to counterbalance that. I don't know how many calories running burns, but I know that it burns more than not running, and I know more running burns even more.
Just because I don't know that I only absorbed 76.4 calories of that yogurt, and running burns 121.7 calories exactly doesn't mean I can't know that running is burning calories.
You don't need to know the exact number. You don't need to know any numbers. Your body doesn't care about the math, or the research into your stool samples, or how many calories Yoplait says is in their yogurt. Your body just functions. As long as you know you are burning more than you're taking in, you know you'll lose weight. That's not arguable, that's not an opinion. That's how fat works.
#236 to #233 - robuntu (06/19/2014) [-]
Knowing your BMI does not tell you how many calories you burn just existing. That's 100% false.
