Weight issues, why is a size 8 consider fat!!! (Page 2)
lillithnightfall: The only thing that bugs me is that they change the clothes, like a large is now what a small use to be, and make you feel worse. Or that if you were bigger a lot of the clothes dont look great, like fancy dressy but for size 0 and under they do
Right now im 217 in weight, i've lost seven pounds and still am losing weight. I use to hate my body, and hate myself for how i look
I dont care anymore, why should you hate yourself for being the way you are just because people don't like looking at you, or think a certain way. Im losing weight because i want to, but i dont care what anybody thinks, if you want to lose weight do it for yourself, cause you'll feel better, and you'll be healtheir, dont do it because people say you're ugly or a nobody unless you're skinny
LOVE 1 ANOTHER: Good for u I also think people that do want to lose weight should do it for them selfs .
Justme4367: How many of you people have recieved friend requests here based on your profile picture? How many have received IM's from strangers commenting on your looks? Ill tell ya what , I think its sad that people judge each other based on the "cover of the book "
Dan_Long: "a mere 57 kilos"? Are you F***ing me? How is that fat? How about the terrified Japanese boy who took one look at her then ran off screaming "its Godzilla!"? THATS how she is fat! Dont blame society. Society didnt hold a gun to her head and make her go back to the cake table for seconds, time after time after time again.
Dan_Long: You think its sad that someone makes their first impression based on your looks? What else does someone know about you from first glance besides your looks? Maybe you have a nifty 6th sense that helps you figure out who has "nice personalities" from first glance, but the rest of us dont.
kritz0: Uhm....you CAN blame society/media to have a negative stigma about people who are overweight. Size 8 is definitely no where NEAR overweight, but since media says it is so, it must be.
No, no one held a gun to their heads and forced them to eat food, but no one forces anyone to starve themselves or purge after a binge. Society just accepts the people who are depriving themselves of food over the people who enjoy food.
I'm not arguing that both circumstances, skinny or overweight, might have been caused by mental issues such as depression or a distorted body image. Because to be on both extremes of the weight spectrum, there has definitely been a link between being unhealthy mentally and the cause for body size.
It is definitely sad when you judge a book by its cover. I'm not saying you have to be nice to EVERYONE before getting to know them them, but to make a rash decision just because on their size? Assuming someone is a lazy fat fuck is definitely not acceptable.
I know plenty of women who could lose a few pounds, but between a marriage, children and a job. There is hardly enough time to go workout and lose the pounds.....so you're telling me this hard working woman should be judged and called lazy because she has more responsibilities beyond her dress size? Hahahahahahaa.. Oh okay then.
I've met plenty of SKINNY women who have been horrible people right down to their core, same number as overweight woman have shown the same traits, size was never an issue to differentiate how a persons personality is. If your judgement is based purely on looks and not on mannerisms of the person in front of you.....Even from a few seconds of a glance...
Well I'm sorry to tell you how stupid and ignorant you are. Actually, I don't have to...if you understood what I said, you might be more logical than your responses make you out to be. If not, well....I couldn't tell it to you because you will stupidly ignore it anyway.
hollyxoc: it's a personal choice everyone has got to make for themselves. i don't think anyone should criticize anyone else for how they choose to look, and yes it is a choice. i'm always poked fun of for being too skinny.
a_Robin: ... yeah okay, and fair enough for you to say that, but not everyone gets to choose what they look like
shirelle valentine: im size 16 in england that considerd huge how do u fink that makes me feel, at the end of the day y do we giv a fuk wot people luk like were all human, evry 1 is different n evry 1 like different fings, 4 sum 1 dont like u there is 10 people that do x
Dan_Long: Yeah. Lets blame it on America. That seems to be the international trend lately. Everything is Americas fault. Yup. That seems logical...
Dan_Long: Hmmm... i guess it is a lot easier to bitch about it online. Must be WAY easier to blame everyone else for having "bad values" than it is to blame yourself for letting yourself go. I hear the same BS from smokers, alcoholics, drug addicts, and just about everyone that f'ed up their life somehow. "dont judge me!". The values of the society that you live in are no secret. You knew how your people feel about "fat asses", even when you were little, so you cant very well bitch about it AFTER the fact.
a_Robin: ...? I'm a smoker and I drink alcohol and I'm a little big, that's because I love life and I love food and I love to experience things, and I don't care what people say about me, anyone with a kind heart is gona see past a couple of pounds... in fact there's nothing to look past, I feel like a beautiful, fun person. If someone cant deal with that then fuck them. Everyone should love their own body. No one has the right to make anyone else ever feel bad.
Justme4367: wow that narrow minded fool still putting his two cents into this subject ? well Dan if we're judging by looks, in my opinion, you're not much to look at , and I knew that before you posted a picture of yourself
Snowy_: Size 8 fat? No way. What man wants to lie on top of a woman and feel like he is lying on a bunch of chicken bones.
I think women look nice with some meat on them and I like my men to have some meat on them.
