Yes, yes it is …
Only spoke about this the other day hoping they’d have a final fence jump.
I knew they would come through with the goods - I shall cheer in the cinema at the mere mention of a Cornetto :D
“DAMN YOU SHARKTOPUS!!!”
My illnesses are an excuse. A completely valid, legitimate excuse. If you felt the way I feel, you would curl up into a ball and cry for your mother.
There are plenty of circumstances in which people can gain weight without eating to excess.
I never said I always ate healthy. I just said I currently maintain a fairly moderate diet. Unfortunately, if you break it down to simplest terms, I must burn more calories than I take in. With my level of activity, the required diet would border on starving myself. Which is not a healthy solution.
If you wish to blame me for being overweight, then you are essentially blaming a 3rd grader that didn’t know the consequences of sneaking food when his mom wasn’t looking. I most certainly did not eat healthy then and I have struggled with obesity ever since. So why don’t you find the nearest chubby 3rd grader and see how comfortable you are shaming them for overeating? Or perhaps you might consider that we are not adequately educated in this country. That we have terrible school lunch programs. That we have neighborhoods with very few options for healthy food. That sometimes the convenience and price of unhealthy food makes it our only option. Maybe… just maybe… this issue is immensely more complicated than buttnuggets like you telling chubby folks to start eating better and doing sit ups.
So many people think it is a quick fix of diet and exercise. But there is an intense psychology involved as well. People do not fail at weight loss because they are all lazy and unmotivated. Most of the time they fail because it is incredibly difficult. And then society tries to shame them for their failure. How many people try to give up caffeine only to be drinking Starbuck’s a month later? Or smoking? Or just reading more books?
If these things are that difficult, is it really that hard to imagine someone failing to achieve a complete lifestyle change? A change in which you can make no mistakes, must endure pain, eat terrible food, and work to the point of exhaustion just to get any results. And for what? So they are more comfortable for you to look at? That’s malarkey. How about you just adjust your brain to realize that other people are not there to make your eyeballs happy.
Well said Frogman, well said.
Prosecutors in the UK asked for a witness report from the officer PC Peach, not knowing that Peach is the name of a police dog from a West Midlands station. Officers jokingly filled in the form above but are now being disciplined for their actions.
That is superb - pity there’s been a sense of humour bypass & they’re getting disciplined for it
