I think it’s important to highlight this moving and persuasive comment by njnjnj:
OK, how can you dismiss doctors who ask for lifestyle changes when you havent even attempted to make them? I don’t think its that you CANT lose weight, you just dont want to try. God, seriously I think you should right a post addresing what seems a bunch of lies this whole fat movement is because all of you can lose weight but you wont try. And I think you should mention how much and what kind of exercise you get. Because on the forum I frequent full of runners, many of them were at one point morbidly obese, started running, and lost 70-100 pounds and became more healthy than they ever have in their entire lives. So how can you say fat people cant lose weight?
S/he obviously didn’t read the post in question, let alone the rest of the blog, or s/he would know that I’ve dieted my ass off, quite literally. And s/he obviously didn’t read the comments, where I talked about eating fucking vinegar and lettuce. Or the numerous posts and entire “yoga” category where I talk in great detail about how much and what kind of exercise I get. And s/he obviously didn’t notice that the majority of my commenters have also dieted repeatedly.
But thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster njnjnj came along to tell us what’s what! I had NO IDEA I’m fat because I’m too lazy to get unfat, and if I just ate less and exercised, I would become thin and healthy — the latter of which I clearly am not right now, what with the fat. And this… fat movement thing! It’s a pack of lies! I’ve been misleading you all!
Especially the part where I talk about “health concerns” being driven by hateful, ignorant stereotypes of fat people. I’m definitely lying about that.
I AM SO SORRY.
