"openly fat"....is there a way to be in the closet about being fat?
User avatar #108 to #107 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
Explain please, I'm pretty sure people can tell you're fat without you telling them.

Coming out of the fat closet

Because, y'know, there's not much food in there...

Coming out of the pantry.

I guess if maybe you were a corset or something to hide your fat you could consider yourself to be a closeted fat person.
I have no idea.

lol yeah on her blog she treats being fat like it isn't a choice and that she should be proud. I'm not saying you should hate yourself for being fat but you should at least accept that it is your fault for eating too much and that you are not attractive at all, not counting fetishists.

Just my two cents, but sometimes it isn't their choice. Take myself and my Mum, I'm an Australian size 6 (I believe that's an American size 2). My Mum on the other hand is a size 14. Your first reaction is "Well obviously she needs to get off her lazy ass and do some excercise!" Mum jogs 2ks a day, I can't even touch my toes. In our case it's genetics. She too was very thin when she was my age, but in her 30s her thyroids basically shat themselves. **** happens.

Moral of the story is: I'm a cool chick but don't marry me because in ten years I'll be fat
User avatar #90 to #80 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
yeah but that's called aging, the chick in the post was in college.
User avatar #97 to #90 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
No it's called genetics. That's like saying everyone over the age of 30 is 75kg and up. Which is complete ******** , I'm sure you're aware.
User avatar #98 to #97 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
It's a combination of the two. If you are under the age of thirty you have no excuse for being overweight.
User avatar #165 to #98 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
There's this crazy thing called 'generalisation'
User avatar #99 to #98 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
Ok, I give up, you're an idiot.
User avatar #100 to #99 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
Believe it or not genetics don't completely determine a person's weight.
User avatar #102 to #100 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
You want a bet? I couldn't gain weight if I tried! I've literally been put on diets specifically designed to help get me in a normal weight range, and it didn't work! I'm drinking my third can of coke for today, and it's only 7:30pm. I just finished a bag of doritos and I'll probably be ording myself a large pizza and a garlic bread in the next half hour. By your standards I should be a ******* whale, but guess what? I'm not!
User avatar #103 to #102 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
So everyone should just eat whatever they want then right? Because it doesn't matter, its only their genes that determine their weight. And who needs exercise? It's not like it makes you fit or anything, that's just genetics too isn't it?

I'm not saying genetics have no effect on weight, it just that your diet and how much you exercise have a much greater influence.
User avatar #104 to #103 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
No it doesn't! Yes, you should eat healthily, yes you should excercise, but genetics completely determines someones potential weight, muscle mass, flexibility, the list goes on. I could continue on my diet and have zero weight gain, while someone else my exact height and weight could take up the same diet and gain ten kgs in a month. That's genetics. On the same strain, my younger brother is on a protein diet and goes to the gym every day, yet he's still a beanstalk. Why? Because his genetics make it very difficult for him to gain muscle mass.

You should eat healthily and exercise for your inner health, not your outer appearance. Not that I do. And I suppose you're in peak physical condition?
User avatar #106 to #104 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
Yes, genetics determine your metabolic rate, but with enough destructive eating habits and lack of exercise your metabolism slows down and you get fat. Aging also often slows your metabolism unless you can maintain a strict exercise regime and a healthy diet.
User avatar #109 to #106 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
Like I just said, you should eat healthily for your inner health, not your outer appearance. I also noticed you ignored my question.
User avatar #111 to #109 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
Oh no I'm fat, eating healthy is way too much work, and **** exercise. I'm content being fat and lazy. But I'm under no delusion that my obesity is anything other than my slothful lifestyle. I've gone on diets and exercised before and I've lost weight but I don't like the lifestyle required to maintain physical fitness.

My uncle was incredibly overweight and even had a heart attack at 20 years old. He is now very fit and has gone on to make an award winning documentary about the ideal diet. I'm fairly certain he hasn't changed his genetic code so I'm pretty sure diet and exercise did wonders.
User avatar #115 to #114 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
It depends. He was either very slothful, alarmingly so, or he worked incredibly hard to get where he is. For example all those people on biggest loser, after the show they're not particularly thin. It's a vast improvement, yes, but they're still pretty chubby.
#117 to #115 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
#151 to #117 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
Yea, I can do that too
User avatar #163 to #151 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
Yeah but I never said they were all thin, you did say they were all chubby though.
User avatar #136 to #117 - thirdjess (08/23/2013) [-]
Ok that's one out how many? Hundreds?
#150 to #136 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]

I don't know, the Facebook status she put up in her blog says she "dares" to be fat which leads me to believe that a small part of her regards that this is a choice she made.
User avatar #62 to #61 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
But more like it's a positive lifestyle choice rather than an unhealthy and self-destructive one.
User avatar #66 to #62 - lordtriggs (08/23/2013) [-]
I think the only upside of being fat is that you can lose weight and feel good about the fact you lost weight

that's it
User avatar #92 to #66 - zarcos (08/23/2013) [-]
you can survive longer in subzero climates or without food.
User avatar #182 to #92 - lordtriggs (08/23/2013) [-]
yes but to be in that sort of situation is incredibly rare

and fat people don't ordinarily go to a place without food or at subzero temperatures
