A mixture of disgust and pity. The disgust is my natural reaction to the way they live their lives, with no dignity or self-respect. The pity is from knowing that they must be dreadfully unhappy, and that no one wants to live that way. It is a mixture of ignorance, socioeconomic pressure and self-control that gets them to where they are. I hate them for the part they have control over, but understand that it could be me in another life. If I were the guy in OP, I would legitimately kill myself.
Knowing a lot of morbidly obese people, I can't help but feel empathy for them. Regardless of how they got really fat, I feel that it is just as hard to get thin. The mental fortitude and physical taxation on your body is like that of a drug dependency. At the same time, I do not think people should encourage obesity.
I weigh about 300 pounds and I watched the episode with that fat fuck and holy fuck he's an annoying cunt. I take responsibility for my weight, it's MY fault and I'M the only one capable of changing it (which I currently am).
I would kill myself before ever getting close to what he is, and I can fully understand people who say they could kill themselves before getting close to what I am now.
>>726757458 Being a once fat person, every few steps you grow fatigued. Your life is a pain and your intuition is to not work out because of this major fatigue. You go to food because it makes you happy in the midst of your depression. It kinda is a pain.
I think we should embrace this fat acceptance in culture not because i support people being fat but because i think the laws of evolution will always hold true:
1. Fat ugly cunts will alwqys be seen as repulsive 2. Many of them will eat themselves to death so the population remains stable 3. Many of them are ugly sjw retards that never got boyfriends growing up so theyll just date and marry eachother 4. With lesbian couples of fat ugly sjws living together, they cant reproduce or spread their filthy fat gebes down the chain of generations and genetics.
I used to be massively obese in highschool, about 250lbs at 5'5'', and have since lost it and joined the Army. I'd never do that shit again. Don't get fat, guys. Shit sucks ass. Wear a backpack, on your front instead of back, that's loaded with 100+ lbs and that's pretty much how it's like 24/7.
The person bringing that thing food should be punished, I mean any food at all because he's essentially trapped by the fact that his body probably only consumes about 1,000 calories per day, he could eat at a level that would leave most people quite hungry and not lose weight because he can't move to expend energy. He needs to eat less than 500 calories per day and do whatever exercise he can with his arms to burn calories to get out of that situation. He would then require extensive plastic surgery to fix his skin.
>>726757095 I've seen a TV show about this, It's really sad because his daughter had to drop out of her education to care for him full time and her and about 3 other family members have to wash his legs because he has leprosy from being a disgusting hambone, Honest to god it would be better for everyone involved if he died but even then they'd need a crane or a forklift to remove his body
people can't empathize with fat people, or at least /fit/ can't, but some of us are able to. I feel pity towards fat people like in op's image too, especially when I consider all the times in my life where i decided to pig out or skip exercising simply because i wanted to. maybe that guy has some organ problem that fucks with his metabolic functions or something, i dunno. but surely it's conceivable that he's only different in degree, not in kind, to me.
im not not-obese because I exercise adequate control. i'm just lucky that my appetite and hankerings happen to be relatively modest.
for that guy though? somewhere along the way of his swelling up he could have decided to change things and not become jabba the hut. but it would have been a herculean effort of will. he would have had to be miserable, constantly and doggedly denying himself the small pleasures he happens to naturally crave.
i think "it's harder for me to lose the weight than it is for you" fags are right. I think people emerge into adulthood equipped with preferences they had no choice in shaping and to act against those is pure suffering.
I let my bipolar disorder ruin my life. Food was my only thing i enjoyed. Mfw i hit 317lbs. I fucking hate being fat and tired and sweaty and just a pos. I use to be a fit 175lbs and could see my weiner. Thankfully fat can be lost with dedication.
>>726757458 I have chronic back pains and living in northern Europe finding clothes that fit and look decent is a struggle. Everything is heavy, and I have to always be aware of how I put pressure on my back or it'll get fucked. I start sweating from pretty much anything. Even though I don't get physicly tired, at least not much, I look like I've run a marathon just from vacuuming my apartment.
Having always been fat I have horrible self-esteeem and because of that a terrible social life. Depression pretty much always follows that so aside from always being tired I also feel like shit psychologicly, and food is a kind of comfort, it's a vicious circle of wanting to eat to feel better, and then feeling worse for eating. The only reason I haven't offed myself yet is because I can't bare the thought of my mother burying me...
It's horrible, don't get fat. And if people start talking about body positivity and fat acceptance just tell them to fuck off, they're lying.
Exactly what I was trying to get at. I definitely have to exercise self control to get/stay thin, but I can pretty much do so in 2 weeks max if I have to. I guess where we differ is just that I have a lower tolerance for how heavy I'll let myself get (~200lbs @5'10") before I put my head down to get back down to 185lbs.
I know I have a bigger appetite than most guys, and although I was an athlete, I find little joy in just "working out." I simply don't have the self control to stay at my best weight, but am lucky that I have the vanity to force myself back down when necessary.
I could see myself in that position if I didn't have certain other traits (vanity, competitiveness/burst focus, health knowledge).
That's more than most people will accomplish in their lives. Sure, it may just be reaching what should be the baseline expectation (to stay healthy), but I am more impressed by someone who has struggled with and overcome drug addiction than someone who never touched a joint in their life.
>>726756532 I would support a law where an acceptable BMI is required of you. these people are a weight for themselves and anyone caring for them. id have them in internement camp until they like lettuce.
>>726757458 Finding clothes that don't look tight is a pain sometimes. Nobody wants to fuck you. Can't really do activities for too long. Can't fit through small spaces. It's not too bad, but it's not ideal.
It is hard. Sure, not impossible, but it is pretty hard. Especially the eating better part. I mean, it's not like they're just shoving food in their face out of boredom, their body is telling them they are very hungry like all the time.
Sure, you can fight it like I did, but it's not easy to just ignore hunger all day.
>>726760670 You mean they won't eventually be satisfied with what they have much in the same fashion as they consume food unto congenital heart failure?
They will always pay attention only to the most extreme and dramatic things instead of learning from lifes simple pleasures in the same way they will smash doritos and dew but avoid wild rice and garlic?
They will constantly insinuate the guilt of others while glossing over their own in the same way they can't prevent their terrible appearance but ask us all to accept it?
>>726758684 not bait, just not asshole posting for one second unlike you >>726759130 i don't know anything about medicine. I also wasn't trying to convince anyone of anything. are you retarded? high schools in the united states have reading and writing exit exams. anyone who's passed those could comprehend my post. did you fail yours? or maybe you're just a eurodumb
>>726762915 Eat when hungry, not any other time. Don't eat garbage. Don't sit on your ass all day like a lazy piece of shit human. You know these people get zero exercise, they don't work (can't work) and live off welfare to fund their food addiction, and are surrounded by people who enable their lifestyle.
>>726756532 Grew up in a fat as fatass hamplanet family
Seriously my family is obscenely fat. I've posted about them on /fit/ before. One of my cousins is a diabetic (well they all are), but she'll sit there and drink a 2-liter of mountain dew at a family function, then shoot up with insulin.
When i was in highschool some kids made fun of me for being fat and I was in the bathroom crying. The football coach came in. Took me to his office and we talked. He said if I wanted to lose weight he'd help me.
And he did. Taught me how to cook and eat right, taught me how to lift and exercise. He's truly my hero.
Well my family HATED it. We're talking screaming matches in the principle's office trying to get him fired.
Fast forward to 28 years old. One of my youngest cousins comes to me. No one has asked her to the dance. She's upset and wants to lose weight
Start teaching her to exercise, how to eat right, portion control, and how to cook real food. Her mother goes absolutely batshit. They're threatening to get her institutionalized for anorexia and all this shit.
Fortunately she stuck it through and by her senior year she'd lost 60 pounds and was looking damn good. In the end she ended up moving in with me while she went to college to get away from the family.
I can post about a thanksgiving dinner where five fireman and three mabulance units came to the house and a fireman threw up in the front yard.
>>726764460 Dude, you can pack a lip of opium or chew coca leaves and get the effect too. Your whole idea that weed is somehow fundamentally different than other drugs is fundamentally wrong. Just shut the fuck up.
I find disgust in the fact that they ever let themselves get that fat. I don't hate them, I just don't understand... I just don't buy appetizing food when I feel like losing weight, and buy it when I need to gain.
>>726764075 >thanksgiving >I only see the family twice a year >the other one is easter (sigh- I just realized that's coming up) >sitting there figuring out how much weight the first floor of the house is actually holding up and whether the furniture weighs more or the people. >My aunt who weighs 350 pounds gets up and drags her feet and walker across the floor to the bathroom >at the transition from tile to carpet her foot catches >she falls >my dad and uncle rush over to help her up >both hamplanets in their own right >I am amused that her blubber is taking up the entire width of the hall as she's laying there >my uncle is the first to fall >I become aware of the pungent odor of feces >my dad slips and falls as well. >I can't control my laughter and make for the back door >call 911 >firemen arrive first >ambulance comes. >I'm standing out front on the sidewalk with my boyfriend and cousin >rescue workers coming in and out >army of fatasses waddling around the front yard out of breath >fireman comes out and leans over the porch railing and pukes >walks over to the firetruck which we're standing by >"So... how many times do fatasses shit themselves when they fall?" >"Excuse me, who are you?" >"The one in the blue plaid shirt. thats my dad." >"ah" >"Yeah... no seriously, how often do they shit themselves?" >wipes his face with a towel >"enough that I should be used to it by now" >walks back inside as they're wheeling my dad out on a stretcher
>>726764968 >you can also imbibe them in ways absolutely not a single person who has ever paid for it imbibes. >your whole Idea that since weed is still a plant and not altered in anyway from its original form unlike many of the street drugs I listed doesn't support my childishness at all...so shut up
There's a level of obesity that inspires a kind of pity or disappointment. Past that level, is disgust. Anyone who isn't running out of breath from walking up 16 stairs, adjusting their stomach when they sit, or whose chin is at least visible, is someone who isn't on or beyond those levels of obesity to me. There's a level of being fat that I'd think is acceptable enough, a level which isn't grossly, well, gross. Unfortunate. Almost, insulting. A decent level within some sort of margin of "healthy enough". There's a level of being fat that doesn't scream "I eat everything that moves", the kind of fat someone can get to, and with decent or normal effort, burn. The kind of fat you'd get from middle age even, that kind of stuff.
As a person who's body doesn't hold onto fat like I'll never have another meal again, I just can't fathom how someone can let themselves get that way without some serious issues. I can understand if they were born into it, but otherwise, it just stupefies me. Nobody in their right mind would be comfortable with having a heart attack every other month, or actively creating their diabetic condition and treating it at the same time. How... how do you live, feel alright, when you can't even see your legs? When you are that large? When your skin has stretched like that, when you constantly bruise? How? When you can't even wipe yourself? You just do so much damage to your body that way. I just don't understand, maybe because it isn't at all rational or based in logic.
>>726756532 It depends on the weight. If we're talking about morbidly obese people, I have a modicum of sympathy for them, as no one ever becomes morbidly obese because they're happy with their life. Self control is definitely an issue, but so is a crippling addiction as far as the person in OP is concerned.
I could stand to lose around 20 pounds, but I don't because I'm simply a lazy bastard who likes to eat junk and drink beer.
>>726757458 300lbs on one person isnt the same as on another...I was 300lbs I walked fine, was out of breath going up steps, but i know skinny bitches that do the same but normal walking was ok and fuck even the slightest jog. it was mostly mental, when youre fat you know it so every shower and looking at myslef in the mirror, trying on clothes. it got the point I didnt want to leave the house cause I hated how I looked sO I lost all my friends. My wife ended up leaving me and thats when I turned it around
but to clear it up theres no way OP is 300lbs that dude is way heavier
>>726766462 >Officers who responded to the scene said that the man's skin was fused to the fabric of chair >and that he was sitting in his own feces and urine with maggots visible >his girlfriend, who officials said fed him since he never got up
What if his girlfriend and that other person were actively force feeding him, keeping him trapped in that living room, and then played it off when he died?
>>726765415 If you think that people only consume opium and coca through needles and snorting, you are ignorant. If you think that marijuana you buy on the street or in dispensaries today is in any way close to its "natural form," you are incorrect. Making the distinction between the drugs' fianl form intentionally ignores all of the other ways that marijuana is consumed. Putting inhaled drugs on a pedestal ignores the effects of the most prevalent, tobacco.
You felt the need to respond to a completely tangential part of my original post, because I classified marijuana as a drug. Guess what? It is. I have plenty of friends who are addicted to weed. I'm not judging them- I have a healthy dependency on alcohol. I've known kids who ruined their futures by becoming dependent on weed and letting the world pass them buy. One of my best friends became a huge stoner in college and it triggered underlying serious anxiety and depression in him, which he was predisposed to.
I'm not saying it's worse or equally bad as any other drug. But it's a drug. It alters your physical and psychological state, and overuse of it can cause long-term effects. Being a "plant" does not change that.
>>726756532 the only time i think that it is anyway acceptable for someone to be fat is if they have an eating disorder or something is physically wrong with them if you are fat and you're doing or at least atemping to do something about it then its not as bad as the people who are on the motor scooters at the supermarket
If I sat around getting 1600 a month and spent it all on shooting herion you would call me a useless drain and that I should go to jail but a whale spending 1600 of tax payer money to eat so much food he destroys his body people go oh now I feels bad. Fucking aids please
>>726769163 So... the fatasses have some sort of white hole inside of them that generates mass on demand? Even short men spend well over 2 000 KCal just by existing. Any human being can subsist from their fat reservoirs eating 1500 KCal a day without any sort of repercussion; and they can even fast 2 days a week with 600 KCal for even faster weight loss. Fat asses can spend well over 10 fucking thousand KCal without even moving.
If you also had enough common sense to not eat until you couldn't even fucking move; you can even walk to spend extra energy and even produce enough stimulus to protect your muscle from breaking down.
Nah, I've done most drugs apart from heroine and meth, and like to have a good time. But I work in pharmacology, and my wife is a psychiatrist. Grew up in the bay area so I've been smoking weed since I was 15.
So many stoners are like the bro-science jackasses on bodybuilding message boards, peddling half-truths and bullshit about their favorite drug. "It comes from the ground so it's super chilly maaaan."
>>726764460 And cyanide naturally occurs in plants and some invertebrates. Whether a thing is made "naturally" or not doesn't make any difference. Would you rather take an aspirin or chew on poison ivy? Learn chemistry and biology, then you might even figure out what mushrooms are.
>>726769417 What I mean is that someone with, say thyroid issues, excercising 5 hours a week and eating only 2000 calories a day will gain more weight than a person without those issues would. And that is just an extreme case- there are plenty of factors that effect how efficiently someone processes calories.
Each person is a black box that functions different from the next person, so expecting simple input/output relationships to hold is a little naive, especially when you take into account the fact that the majority of our calorie expenditure is based on our basal metabolic rate, rather than physical activity. Calorie restriction generally will force your BMR lower, to conserve calories further.
And even then, some of the physical differences between us affect our cravings and psychology, which could make maintaining the same diet as someone else more demanding for one person than the other. It's just not that simple.
>>726771065 Minor metabolic differences aside, calories in and calories out IS a thing.
The fatties try and conflate "muh thyroid" with their massive portions, 24 cases of cola, and 32 ounce "fun size" candies.
Simply saying that a person with a "thyroid issue" will weigh more than one without is one thing, and studies have shown that all things being accounted for, hypothyroidism accounts for less than 10lbs of weight gain when controlled for physical activity level, and lean mass and diet. It DOES NOT account for a person weighing 350 or 400 lbs is the point that I'm fucking making.
>>726757458 Meh. I'm 6'1 285. I play soccer. I run up the stairs and go hiking. I'm Fat but I'm not an invalid. My feet hurt sometimes and my back hurts a lot but that's my own damn fault. I'm not having a pity party. I bring a ton of energy every day.
>>726772668 Because then lardass proceeds to scream, yell, and mentally abuse their provider. Or worse, they'll purposely shit themselves and make a huge mess for them to clean up. So to prevent all that, they give up their backbone and bend to every whim of tubby.
>>726756532 That's not "fat". That's obese. Nothing wrong with a bit of fat on your body. Some people don't find it attractive, but that's up to them. you can't force someone to find something attractive if they don't find it attractive. (something Tumblr doesn't seem to fucking understand).
But this shit. This is beyond pathetic. This is what americans think when they say "fat". This isn't "fat".
My family is posted about above. It's all a cyclical system of enabling and abuse.
The fatasses who get so fat they can't even get out of bed can only get that way because someone is feeding them and enabling their behavior (duh) But the reasoning behind doing it is just as much a psychological disfunction as the morbidly obese's unhealthy relationship with food.
>>726757291 I know feeling, I was 270 and dropped to 170 in about a year and half, now 3 years later I'm 300lbs, I don't know how it happened. Shit Is draining, to go back and work to lose another 100lbs scares me and makes me depressed. Biggest tip I can give you once you lose weight, don't get comfy.
>>726756532 SOMEONE POST THAT PIC OF THE FAT GIRL WITH DISGUSTING BUMPS ALL OVER HER NECK. Someone made a story about it and he had a gap tooth and wanted to pull each of the bumps with her teeth or something and it was the most disgusting thing ive ever read here. Someone pls
No reason to be fat. It's mental more then anything. It's a mental disease that lets someone drink soda, eat candy, and not worry about their health.
Most fat people need to seek counseling. For me it was listening to the JRE podcast. I started about 6 months ago and it taught me a lot of health and making proper choices.
I was 265 in high school, by senior year I was 210. My age 20 I was 194 after getting back up to 250.
Once my kid was born at age 21, I ballooned up to 312 in 3.5 years. Looking back I don't even know who that person was or what I was doing. 24lbs in 24 days later, I feel good and looking forward to tomorrow. Kickboxing and BJJ at 9amvv
>>726773968 I have spent 50 years watching a family member live as an obese person who has buried feelings with food and drink forever, and isn't planning to change. It truly fucks with you as an observer of someone who lacks self control.
>>726756532 I hate some, I don't hate some, but the only one I hate specifically for being fat is myself. 384lbs >inb4 lose weight It's not that simple for me. I'm quite mentally ill. You see, diet and exercise would mean giving up on deliberately making myself fatter, a cause to which I'm devoted for reasons not comprehensible to anyone with a shred of sanity or self respect.
>>726774904 I see you're severely depressed. Are you also a psychopath? Because that and/or ignorance are the only two explanations I can think of as to why, in this process of deliberately destroying your own body and life, you wouldn't stop to think about the innocent people whose lives you're also ruining with your gluttony.
If you are in fact aware of the suffering you're causing and still go through with this on a daily basis, I'm genuinely sorry for how insane you are. I can only imagine what experiences must have led you to this.
>>726756532 Generally, they're failing themselves, and they deserve some of the admonishment they receive. All it takes for the vast majority of fat people to lose weight is to cease taking in more calories than are burned every day. I understand that there are conditions that make this more difficult, but math is math. I do believe that more should be done to treat mental illness and encourage people to accept counseling— many people are fat because of mental illness and/or childhood trauma (eating can be a coping mechanism). That, and excessively fattening food should be taxed and/or more government subsidies should be offered to produce farmers (end result: more people buy cheaper, healthier food). Small tax breaks could even be offered to people who produce some of their own healthy food (ex: spend a certain amount on food plant seeds, potting soil, etc.; get it back in tax returns).
>>726756532 I think you faggots focus on appearances WAY too much desu senpai. It's about personality. And most of you are size of OPs pic anyways. Did you think you were going to score Americas Next Top Model looking like the Stay Puft marshmallow man?
