OK, since we all have thoughts and ideas about what slender, healthy people do, let's see how we do with this! ;)

Of course I could have said "fat" instead of "overweight, unhealthy," but that's kind of a hot button... :lol:

Overweight, unhealthy people eat whole bags of chips while sitting at the computer.

Overweight, unhealthy people never say no to dessert, no matter what it is or what they've already eaten.

Overweight, unhealthy people eat until the point of pain.

Overweight, unhealthy people think they are getting exercise by watching a sport on TV while eating.

Care to add more to this obviously stereotypic thread? :lol:

Overweight, unhealthy people need constant reminders on what is healthy and not healthy to eat when they go on a "diet"

Overweight, unhealthy people are smelly.

It's okay for slim skinny people to say something rude about an overweight and unhealthy person right in front of you as long as they mention "oh but we don't mean you"

That is so awesome!!

I will add to the thread, but I'm not going to generalize. I'm going to say what *I* did as an overweight, unhealthy person.

When I was heavy and overweight, I always had to order the largest size of everything. Now that I am a healthier person, I always order the smallest size. I used to think that only a Venti Starbucks latte would satisfy me, but I'm now very happy with a Starbucks Tall! (the short is too small though, heh)

Overweight, unhealthy people know that feelings will be hurt if they refuse food.

Overweight, unhealthy people eat whole bags of chips while sitting at the computer.

Okay, I had to laugh at this one, as I AM sitting in front of my computer eating a whole bag of chips!

It is only a 16g bag (from Halloween) and I did plan for it, but it was still kind of funny. :D

Overweight, unhealthy people can't say no to anything! Food, people who take advantage of them or favors they don't want to do because they are "nice"

This is an obviously sarcastic thread right?

Hey Anne! :wave:

I had in mind the 13-serving bag... :eek:


11-30-2008, 03:41 PM
No, I don't think it's meant to be sarcastic. It's just sharing what each of us has realized we did before that we have or are changing. Or maybe have just realized we need to change.

Oh gosh. A trip down memory lane..........

There is SO much that overweight ME did totally wrong that caused me to be, well, umm, overweight. I'll give it a shot. Here's a few that comes to mind.

Overweight me - would buy 1/2 gallon of ice cream with the intention of eating the whole darn thing. Not in one sitting. But over the course of 2 days and sometimes managed to do so in ONE day.

Overweight me avoided the scale for close to 15 years.

Overweight me ate what I wanted when I wanted - and apparently overweight me wanted a heckuva lot.

Overweight me was incredibly sedentary and never did any formal exercise. Didn't do much unintentional exercise either.

Overweight me ate fried foods ALL the time. Ate full fat salad dressings. Never skimped on calories. Just kept on pouring more and more oil in the pot. The whole bit.

Overweight me always went back for seconds, usually thirds.

Overweight me ate very little in the way of veggies.

Overweight me didn't stop eating until I was stuffed and downright uncomfortable.

Overweight me never turned down dessert.

Overweight me always waited for a Monday to start her "diet". And usually didn't try very hard at all.

Overweight me didn't realize for over 20 years that there was a way out. Didn't realize that exercise was not the devil. Didn't realize that eating healthy is a joy, not a burden. Didn't realize that my body was a gift from G-d, meant to be nurtured, not abused.

All I can say is that overweight me is really glad to be history and oh so happy that slim/healthy ME has taken over. :)

I'm cross-posting because this is interesting and I'm not sure which thread it is more pertinent to ... probably neither it's just the difference between me and my son ...

We were watching a program on TV last evening about food addiction. In response to a woman's remark that she was unwilling to deprive herself of snickers because she likes them, my 26 y o son (5'10" 165 lbs) said something like ... Deprive? I like snickers too but not every day.

So I asked him the obvious question and NO he never thinks he deserves a candy bar. A cold beer is a mighty fine thing but deserve ??? he didn't think so.
I do think I deserve a treat. Inspite of the fact that it has no nutritional value and is doing nothing to improve my life or health ...
You know the old drill? ... intellectually I know ....
