    Truth. She's rocking them 21's. They're not easy to get a grip on though, but I'm sure you'll MacGuyver something up if you can't get a handle on them.

    I'd say the ones I made came out a little less, but I had 5 2x4's and didn't concrete them all the way to the top. The hardest part of moving them was getting a grip on them.

    That's not what it means at all. It's being needlessly proud about it and flaunting it. It's about the mindset that, "This is what real women look like."

    No, it isn't. It's what unhealthy, poorly educated people look like.

    I strongly disagree. Millions lose weight the CW way every year. Paleo/Primal is a niche and probably always will be. The majority of people are going to lose weight with a typical low fat diet and exercising more. And you know what? It works. It works as long as you make it a lifestyle change and not a crash diet. People that fail crash-diet. Most body builders and athletes are not Paleo, but they are in great shape because they exercise and exercise portion control.

    A very overweight woman has the freedom to wear a bikini. A very overweight woman should also understand that she shouldn't be wearing a bikini because it doesn't suit her. If you're going to purposely dress ridiculously to make a statement, don't be surprised when others say unflattering things about you. I wouldn't wear a Speedo. Yes, I could pull it off. Yes, I have the freedom to do so. But I realize I would look ridiculous in it and be ridiculed behind my back. I understand it's inappropriate.

    This link is total bullshit:

    This is what a real woman looks like:




    This is also what a real woman looks like:



    One woman is no more "real" than the other. The difference is the first woman should know better than to be wearing something like that, unless she enjoys negative criticism. Both women should love their bodies and treat them with respect, but someone that truly loves their body wants the best for it.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I guess that would have to depend on your definition of "lose weight". If you count everyone who lost even a pound and then put back on more than they lost within a few weeks, you've got your "millions". If you only count people who lost 10 pounds or more and kept them off 6 months, the number is definitely NOT in the millions. The typical dieter gains 5 pounds with each weight loss diet they attempt.

    The fact is that CW diets are not an effective means of weight loss or maintenance. Only 2% of people who diet lose the weight and keep it off.

    Your definition of "fat acceptance" is a caricature based on how people who hate the obese think those who are obese think.

    The idea that women who are larger than starlets should keep off the beach and never go swimming in order not to assault your eyes is exactly what "fat acceptance" is reacting to.

    I wonder...what should a heavy woman be wearing to actually swim at the beach in? A swimsuit or a burqa?
    A one piece suit wouldn't really cover much more of her body. Just block in the area between the top of her bikini bottom and the bottom of the top. Lots of suits show all that. You'd still be able to see that she is the size and shape that she is and make all of your judgements.
    Maybe heavy people should just hide until they meet your standards?

    Being against ^that^ is what fat acceptance is about.

    The thin girl obviously isn't even dressed for swimming, but for modeling/standing around at a pool party.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Katherine, you can lose weight on a CW diet and keep it off, no problem. The problem is not CW diets not working, it's that people, like ChocoTaco pointed out, "diet" and don't make lifestyle changes. There are plenty of fit people out there, the majority of which are following a CW diet. Most people fail because they starve themselves and do boring cardio to lose weight, then they lose the weight, start doing less cardio, start eating a bit more again, and regain the weight back. They do not make a permanent lifestyle change.
