Re: Big girls need to suck it up

Only on EF could a semi-troll thread about overweight people be then turned into a overweight single mother appreciation thread.

Weight may be put on for various reasons Tom, could be exercise, not as good a diet, just not enough rest anything really. This is not some sweeping statement about parents and weight it was just an example that you cannot say 'all fat people are lazy' as some people, and I chose an example of a parent (not all parents!) who might be putting in massive amounts of energy during the day into raising their children and are so drained at the end of it they just collapse in front of the Telly with only time to make something simple and in time it may lead to a change in their weight. This is not being fat 'because they are lazy' it is being overweight because there are other higher priorities in their life above preparing healthy food and doing regular exercise at that moment.
Unless you have a genuine medical or psychological issue, then being fat is completely avoidable. It is a simple matter of consuming more calories than you burn, and being "too tired" to take notice of your health and diet is really no excuse. Especially so if you have children who depend on you and will use you as a benchmark.
