  • What obesity is good for

    I say this knowing full well it's bitchy that I'm saying it.

    I was heading up the cafeteria at work for a sparkling water and started to think it would be fun to get a muffin or doughnut. Just a little treat. Yeah, I still want to lose another 15-20 pounds but I haven't had a non-compliant treat in sooo long.

    So I was at the point where I was telling myself I'd "just look" and see if they had anything interesting. Which you know is likely to lead to eating. Then I walked in the cafeteria and the first person I see there is huge. Brookhaven Obesity Clinic fat.

    I walked right past the pastries without a glance and got my water. Thirst was probably behind the craving anyway.

    That person never needs to know her fatness was my craving killer today, but at least the obesity epidemic serves a small, petty purpose for me.

      Obese persons as a cravings killer??? Hmmm, something tells me that a few of the very politically correct forum members will come and take you soon...

        I'm not proud of it. But at least I didn't eat that muffin.

            Fat is supposed to be satiating isn't it?

              Don't forget that obese people are almost always doing weight bearing exercise when they walk, and so have less of a chance of suffering from osteoporosis in their old age.

              Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                Go to an amusement park during the summer...those sights will definitely make you focus on getting your ass in shape.

                  I don't think this is bad. We are thankful for what we have been blessed with.

                    You know, when I hear the overweight being told their weight is like walking around carrying a heavy backpack, I always think "but isn't that good exercise?"

                        I think my employers frown upon eating students.

                          You know, with all the crap that I've loved eating throughout my life, I was never a fan of funnel cake.

                            I don't think its bitchy. I get motivation from the same type of situation. "Look at that person who isn't in good health. I have the power to make changes now! I gotta get going before I can't fix it anymore!"
