Weight issues, why is a size 8 consider fat!!! (Page 5)
bitebackchat: Its an image of a following whilst some people are naturally thin others yearn for this trend set by the media, I along time ago in the early 90's before it was considered fashionable to be skinny was a size 6 (UK) which in the US is a zero. I had endless dietry and stomach and bowel problems because i just did not eat. the crunch time came when there was a deep concern from doctors regarding my kidneys and i had to have surgery for my stomach, In short be healthy and don't follow others blindly just for an outgoing image projected by the media.

rollinbus: would be curious to see a picture of dan when he gets to my age.
curvy is fine .people are to brain washed by the media .the comment about the cake table cracked me up. is many different reasons why people are over weight .
smilesforeveryone21: I've always dated in the size range of 12 to 28. Ideal is about 16 to 18. Have been with two size 28's. That just mad hot sex! But anything under size 12 just doesn't do it for me. Currently married to a size 20 and loving it. She went on a huge diet a few years back and got down to size 12. Not looking forward to that happening again!
Big Bopper: If you feel like you are fat, then eat less. If you want to be on TV, then eating less might be worthwhile, but unless you are aspiring to be a movie star, then get over it, and love yourself the way you are. If your friends make you feel overweight, then you are hangin' with the wrong crowd.
Personally, I'd rather be a few pounds up and struggle to get my plump butt across the court, than be hungry every waking moment. But lemme tell you what...if you 'struggle' with your body mass now, you will be in trouble when you are over 40 or 50 years old. Old bodies just don't burn it off like younger ones do.
If I'm ever to be thin again, I'll need to forget everything I know about cooking and eating...or become vegetarian. Making food less enjoyable would work as a weight loss philosophy, but I still try to make everything taste good.

Aussiekitty: What size 8 is fat that means I'm very fat I'm a size 10 that's so ridiculous do people expect us to be a bag of bones in this world.
uglycow10: So, who is the knucklehead nitwit who considers size 8 to be fat??????
Clearly, that person has psychological issues !!!!
If I remember correctly? The average American woman weighs in at a zoftc size 16
A re woman is not a waif or a rail. She has curves for days... And knows how to work them.
Size 8 is also beautiful...just about the perfect size...not too skinny and not too fat!!!!
Ugly...and fat at size 10. !
GeraldtheGnome: Progression by some is falsely seen to them and by their blinded to reality supporters as being where they and/or another that that one (and/or some others) support as being as skinny as possible, they either unrealistically see size 8 as being a very fat size or that of being slightly too fat. The problem with these People is that they will do just about anything (even well beyond reason) to attack those that are against it and to keep constantly losing weight, most of them don't know when to stop. This is the way it is for those in particular with Body Dysmorphia and/or other eating disorders, this in turn also brings about other Mental Health Disorders and that of one or more general Health Disorders as well. Grab Nutritionists, maybe even Mental Health experts (if need be) and that of others with a grounded approach to weight loss and to body image problems. 'Selfies' , Diets, Mirrors and Body Reshaping as well as that of compliments to these self destructive forms of behaviour only worsen things so avoid those situations rather than wanting to be like some Model or so on that unknown to you might have an eating disorder or something worse.
A size 8 is only considered to be too big a size to those that are unrealistic about things, just remember though that that is the minority of People on this Planet that are that way. Being slightly underweight or slightly overweight is tolerable and okay. Be an ideal Person in the visual sense if possible instead of attempting the impossible, which is to attempt to be perfect. No one is perfect, but everyone with eating disorders relating to deliberate weight loss is about the Person wanting to be Perfect. There never was a perfect Person, there still isn't and there never will be.
awesome_contagion: considered correct, 8 is fat, but so what, be happy in your size whatever it may be, if not happy then if at all possible change it
GeraldtheGnome: 8, Australian Size is not fat, so you are incorrect. Change only what is needed, if it is not needed then don't be like my Major Opponent and change yourself due to problems that only exist in your imagination.
awesome_contagion: No imagination needed to see a fat person. But its coolies, fat or not what is important is what she a size eight thinks of herself. If she is happy,then good
GeraldtheGnome: Fat People aren't a size 8, what size she thinks she is is important, the reason is that if someone thinks that size 8 is fat then that one really needs to see a Mental Health Professional, if someone is an 8, 10 or 12 and is okay with that then so be it, I've seen the madness of someone that for at least 3 Years thinking that she was fat and not good looking enough all of that time thinking that now she should be toned, the fact is that she is toned, she never had a weight problem, her shape is great, she though should stop taking suggestive Photos and Videos of herself in the attempt of getting acceptance, attention and recognition, all she is doing is attracting low life Males which in effect only makes her more depressed and stressed out than she already is. Some don't see that apart from the way they think that they are great just the way they are.
awesome_contagion: Why then put your two cents worth? your opinion is your opinion , as mine is mine
GeraldtheGnome: I'm for accuracy in a debate, not opinions, therefore I didn't pose an opinion, nor did I look and seek out to argue for arguments sake, unlike you. 5 Cent Coins are the smallest forms of Currency in Australia currently, so therefore I didn't give my two Cents worth. Argue to disagree if you don't wish to be civil, rational and realistic.
awesome_contagion: Am simply stating my view, just like you are stating yours. Just because I do not view your assessment, research, idea to be right , it is still cool, it is your view
uglycow10: I enjoy all of the opinions!
Some people elect to be more specific in their replies and will back I their statements with figures and citations... And that's all good.
I Agee with you that there is no right or wrong and that people are just stating their opinions...and of course they are not going to be all the same....that is why they are called opinions.
Lighten up, everybody... It's just chat!!!!!
GeraldtheGnome: It's not an opinion, it is though a view, based on what is, so your illusion of what is right and wrong is irrelevant due to your lack of research on the subject. As for and, it is joining word, not the start of a sentence, there are various ways that things are right just as there are various ways things are wrong, it's not a case of there is no right or wrong, if you believe otherwise then look and suffer as I have with the evidence that People with eating disorders, Body disorders, Body image problems and so on are going through self destructive behaviour. They are examples of where there are clearly various forms of right things to do and that there are various forms of wrong things to do. I also can't see why the ! is joined to a word. Ms just argued for the sake of arguing rather than had any proper yet opposing yet accurate words in a debate, that was what I am disappointed about. Agree to disagree with this instead if you can't see what I mean instead of just immaturely whinging about it. Those that whinged about it have to lighten up. This is clearly not a proper debate spot, bye !
awesome_contagion: It is a view , your view. Just like I have my view. You are fine in thinking the way you wish, but there is no reason to have you put me down for my view. I stated earlier it was my view, but at the same time as long as the person is happy whether a size 8 or not ,that is what counts.
Just a little clarification here .
The girl that got called fat because she was a size 8, was an Australian girl in an Australian fashion show in an Australian size 8.
That's Size 2 in America.
uglycow10: What jerk off's!
There is nothing so cruel as to be called magga or a bag of bones.
Nothing more irritating to have to pin the waist of your size 1 pants.
Nothing worse than looking like Twiggy and having your clothes hang on you.. Instead of cling to you.!
That was I, at some point in my life.
Today I enjoy working my curves and having my clothes hug in all of the right places....
tattoozrkewl: It is the media and fashion designers that tell us what we are supposed to look like and dip shit attention whores (reality tv etc) that ppl look up to. It is another way we are controlled into how/what to think about every aspect of life. If you dont use facebook you are wierd etc. We (Americans. I cant speak for other countries) are bombarded with crap daily about what is popular or what to eat or what not to do in order to get a partner. It is all BULLSHIT. We are in control of our lives and self image. It is up to us to allow/disallow these idiotic ideas to define who we are or should be. Hell the FDA is changing serving sizes on containers to reflect how ppl really eat. What does that tell us? Ppl that judge have their own insecurities and they are the ones we should be sympathetic towards. We should not allow anyone to tell us what size to be in order to be beautiful. If you are a size 18 and you feel beautiful, it is probably bcuz you are.
Enough ranting. Enjoy.
