Why does everyone in this place think I'm a guy? Lol
I get that a lot, too. I think, liberated as we are, the world is not yet comfortable with logical and assertive women.

Or they just don't expect a woman to have "dawg" in her screen name.

I personally think fat men are so much more unattractive than fat women are. I mean think about it; they come with a huge belly which makes the you-know-what much smaller, probably short fat arms, and no neck. On the other hand, fat women come with probably larger breasts and hips/butts which are what makes a woman a woman anyway. And I notice most fat women have really pretty faces. Also, it's amazing how some of these fatso men think they are entitled to thin women like "oh, I'm a guy and my weight is a non issue but yours is".

Give me a break.

In any case, if forced to choose, I would pick a fat woman over a fat man any day and I'm straight woman.

People are judgemental because it is not hard to get within 5 lbs of your perfect weight. It requires nothing more than a little bit of discipline and information.

Judging from this and other posts, you seems to confuse glib oversimplifications and cherry picked, poorly analyzed and poorly reported data as "information."

Unless you have a medical disorder that makes it very difficult to lose weight.

If you have a medical disorder that is understandable but majority of people are just lazy and not persistent. Most of them do not know what they are doing in the gym and eat garbage.

Oh geez. thermodynamics. (Freshman year). If you consume fewer calories or liquids than you burn or transpirate, regardless of medical disorder, you will lost weight. If not true, then I should go looking to get a patent on a perpetual motion machine.
Maybe difficult to lose weight, yes, but ultimately guaranteed.

Like I said, MORE DIFFICULT. I've been working with a nutritionist, eating no more than 1600 calories a day (I'm 6'1, btw) and working out at least an hour a day 4-6 days a week and I've lost less than 20 lbs in the past year. When you get a synthetic enzyme pumped into you via IV every other week that screws with your metabolism and fat storage then we can talk.

Like I said "Maybe difficult to lose weight, yes, but ultimately guaranteed." Don't need to talk; just following proven basic thermo rules (which have worked well for the past 160 years, since discovery), sort of sums it up. if I recall correctly, the human body dissipates about 90 watts (less, if you have the ability to drop your body temperature, heart functions, brain functions, which is not practical). So look at it this way; if you consume 1x10^6 Calories a day, it is likely you will gain weight. If you consume 1 Calorie a day, you will lose weight, guaranteed. Thus somewhere between 1x10^6 and 1 is the ideal caloric intake to maintain a desired weight. In addition to caloric intake is non-caloric fluids, as they can be retained, but that is what transpiration is for.
I sympathize as to how difficult it can be to do, as I am on metabolism stabilizers 7 days a week.
