OMG Fark I'd never fly again if I had to get on a scale at the airport hahah omg!!!! Do you have any idea how unheatly that flight would be everyone would have been on some dirutics or fasting and no one would want to eat anything and very lickly kill each other on board(low blood sugar does some crazy things )
I've been next to a person that came into my seat and I'd think man that's got to be soo uncomfortable for them. I have clausterphobia isuses and even when I was thin had a hard time being in those rows. Now that I've been battleing some health issues I'm like man these are rough, and I don't know how heavier ones sit comfortably in those chairs. I see where Fark is going and think that maybe a cheaper price on a second seat would be a nice comprimise for everyone involved, because it would make everyone else feel more comfortable.
Lucy=way outta fricken line!!!
Xander & Derick=I wish your 'thinking' was true on the issues of weight, and for some people it may very well be, for others it goes beyond food and exercise. For some the issues are emotional, hormonal or still unexplained by doctors.
I was thin my whole life, then 4 years ago over night I gained 20lbs of fluid in my tummy. Now I was a 20 yr old young poineer and looked 3 months pregs I FREAKED!!!! I'd always been active and ate well I hadn' not CHANGED a single thing, but something happened that had nothing to do with food or exercise. With in 3 months I had retained 50lbs of water and it would move all over somedays it'd be in my stomach, other days my legs or back. It was terrifing, and EXTREMELY painful. I was swollen all over, my face and hands and arms and legs, to say nothing of my waisteline. Everymorning I would get up for service and have no idea what would fit that day because it moved around so much. I cried almost every single morning getting ready, it was so emotionally draining and disturbing. And there was no end or help in site. I went to several Dr.s and had all kinds of test and they didn't know what was wrong. I tried everything diets excerise but I just would get puffier and puffier. I have in the past few months found out about 'lymph edema' and realised how to work with this and have having some great results. But until you know why EACH and every person you meet is over weight you can not just proscribe some blanket judegement on them.
I too used to think that if you burned more calories then you consumed you'd lose weight and just excersied. But after what happend to me it has opened me up to seeing that this problem and other health problems are much more involved. Adn I think need a more mind, body, spirit connection. I know the yoga really helped to relaxe me and take me inside to heal my body, and find what emotions or triggers had caused this in the first place.
I think evertying happens for a reason, and through my expericene I have recived as a gift greater compasion and understanding for the human spirit. If you really want to help someone who is over weight that wants to lose weight don't tell them to eat better, or to exercise they already know that. Just show them love and support, because in doing so you will be giving them the energies and vibrations to heal themselves. When people show me love and consideration I have a much greater incentive then when people 'offer help' with excersie tips and all that because every on is diff and I'll tell you it made me very resentful. Like I wasn't good enough how I am now.
WE ARE ALL GOOD ENOUGH!!! HAVE ENOUGH and DO ENOUGH!!!!!
Just learn how to show love and support and you'll do more good then any diet of excersise advise, TRUST ME on that ok
