Why else? For the foie and hip slapping.

If you really work at it, you *will* be thin. At least thin enough that you aren't huffing and puffing and feeling exhausted all the time.
Btw, just because you carry some extra pounds does not mean you are "huffing and puffing and feeling exhausted all the time." I'm thinking you were fat without any athletic base/history. Skinny people have problems keeping up with my walking pace.

hahah
aint that the truth

fat people rock nice clothes as a concious effort to turn the focus of others to their style rather than their physique.

If you're hot, why bother buying fashionable clothes? You'd look good in anything.

While we're at it, what the hell kind of excuse is a "hobby" or "interest?"

LOL

Fatties shuld stay away from Tom Ford and such

If people are stupid, should they really be posting on an internet forum? Wouldnt it be much better use of their time, to read a book, take an online class or go out in the world an meet some real people. They would feel some much better and wouldnt have wasted everyones time with their pointless views...

Just my 2 euro-cent...

I had a guitar teacher at a college a few years ago who was a very large man who liked to think he was a sharp dresser- the kind of guy who equates style with taking outrageous chances on your wardrobe. He had a pair of sunshine yellow Crocs that he wore with his light wash big man jeans. It was hilarious.

I would like to add that alcoholics should not worry about what they wear. They should just be miserable and die.

Is this seriously what people have come to? Posting crap like this? Does obesity negatively affect your life so much that you are compelled to write this?

As others have written genetics do play a part in people being overweight. That's not the only issue. Obesity is also a disease and often is caused by an addiction (to food). Hence, my alcoholics comment. I think if you asked anybody that is overweight they would tell you they would love to be thin. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as some make it out to be. There are a lot of forces at play.

I am surprised by the lack of sympathy the poster and some others clearly lack for people that are overweight. Going by the statistics I am willing to bet my paycheck that all of you know someone that is obese. 1 in 4 Americans are obese. Heart Disease is the leading killer of adults in the US. So let's trivialize this EPIDEMIC by worrying about how these people look in their clothes.

I think I will pass on the bashing. Like others that suffer from other substance abuse issues I wish obese people well. I hope they can get to a point where they can make a change in their habits. I hope they live long, healthy and productive lives.

I feel sorry for the originator of this post. It must be difficult being so perfect. Apparently, we have found the one person on earth with no flaws. Amazing.
