    I don't think its bitchy. You weren't judging the fat person, their size simply served as a reminder of what you have been working hard to achieve.

      The downside is that you're not always going to have an obese person handy whenever you are on a collision course with a doughnut.

        Maybe, but its fucken hard work dragging that shit around everyday.

          It stopped you from getting a doughnut, so I guess it was okay.

          If you'd like to achieve the same effect without using another person, carry around the most unflattering pre-Primal picture you have in your wallet/purse. Preferably put it near the part of the wallet/purse that has you credit card/cash. I have one in my wallet ... fucking hate that picture but everytime I see it, it reminds me what I was doing before DOESN'T work. Especially when I'm buying stuff in the store because those cheats that sometimes appear in my cart need to go back.

            I don't know, me, I'd rather eat a muffin than be a fucking douchebag. Generally.

              I agree! I would have reacted the same way whether it was an obese person or a swimsuit model .

                  Imagine how that person would feel if you had said this to their face?
                  Have you ever actually been morbidly obese? I doubt it or you would not have posted it.
                  Thinking something like this is one thing, but posting it on a forum full of obese/overweight people trying to change their life is another thing. Just plain nasty as far as I am concerned.
                  This is why I HATE going out in public actually, because of people like you making me feel worse about the way I look. I am sure that person feels bad enough about it already. Yes she was eating crap, but doesn't mean she doesn't want to or is not trying to change her life. Maybe she needs some help as she might not know how to lose weight.

                    I've been obese, yes. That's just one reason I would never say that to her face.

                    What I typed was what happened and I said I'm not proud of it. I acknowledge immoral thoughts and admit to having them.

                    I read things in here all the time that make me feel bad; that experience is not limited to the overweight. Nevertheless, I sincerely apologize to you for my processing of my immoral thoughts negatively affecting you. I am sorry.

                      You are entitled to your opinions and thoughts, just as everyone is.
                      But some things are better left unsaid, truly.
                      I thank you for apologising.

                          One of the main reasons I don't have kids is because I watch the little weasels in public and say, "F*ck no." If someone doesn't want a muffin because my fatass is eating one - well, more power to them. I'll enjoy it and still won't give two sh*ts what they think.

                            Needs help and doesn't know how to lose weight? No matter how nutritionally clueless some people are, I doubt there's an adult alive who doesn't know donuts and pastries are fattening junk foods. If an obese donut eating stranger motivates TS to stay on path, then all the power to her.

                              Like I have always said, nobody is a total failure, at least you can serve as a bad example.
