And it doesn't seem to slowing down anytime soon. What a shame that from high school on, American women can't wait to ratchet up the calories and the bigger thighs. I've traveled and international women around the globe typically do not have this problem. I especially see this problem in black women, where the obesity rate has to be upwards of 65%. Out...of...control hip sizes wedged into these ghastly stretch pants? Yikes! No wonder adult diabetes is at an all-time high. More than every other woman I see on the street has 35 lbs more than they need to be healthy, and to look good. And 35 lbs is being nice. I see plenty of fat guys, but fat women take the cake! Women of America: Do something about your eating and exercisizng habits before it's too late!
If you think that the women of America have not noticed the high percentage of "beer guts" in American men, then you are blind. I used to beat myself up over my extra "35" pounds, until one day when I took a hard look at my husband and realized that he has his own extra "35" pounds, he just wears it differently.
I agree there is a growing problem with weight gain in Americans; that is a well known fact. But shaming women to try and get them to lose weight isn't going to work. When a person decides to lose weight it is because something deep inside clicks and the motivation gets turned on. It's a change that takes place within, and nobody else can turn it on with shameful comments, or denying food to the woman, or any other "good intentions" of surrounding people.
Shame on you for trying to shame us women who live everyday already shaming ourselves because of our weight. And I suggest you take a hard look around you. Men have the same weight gain problem as us women, they just carry it a bit less obviously.
I'm not the one carrying extra pounds. True, guys carry it in their guts, but I don't see you women complaining too much about it. Is that my fault? Guys complain about you women being fat and losing your attractive qualities, that's what they're saying out in the open. You can run and hide from reality, but honesty is what Mtnn is all about. I don't hear a lot of *%#&¤?§* 'in about Henry's waistline, a smidgeon but not a lot mind you, but I do hear plenty about Henrietta's thighs. Why is that? Ball's in your court now...why don't you women voice your dissatisfaction with those beer guts instead of justifying why you let your rear ends continue to widen yearly?
you make me sick, sometimes people truly cant loose weight, because of a medical problem, that mabey the doc has yet to find.
whats your excuse, i think over weight women are sensitive and caring, and probably more intelligent, so go screw your skinny women then afterwords you can have a intelligent conversation (not) or mabey thats what you like Ive heard of guys like you controll freaks. Im not saying all thin women are stupid just the ones that would date/marry you.
First of all let me say that your ignorance is amazing. Yes obesity has rising among all races and yes mostly among the African American women. Did you ever stop to realize that not only has obesity risen but so has the number of poor and the numer of single family homes. This leading to the fact that you now have a single parent house(mostly women and mostly African American)trying to support and raise a family by herself. Which you obviously being so ignorant don't have any conscept as to what that entails. It is proven that to raise 1 child is equivalent to two fulltime jobs. So including working for a living and raising just 1 child you know are working the same as if you are working 3 fulltime jobs in one day. Imagine if you had more then one child. Now I also have many white friends who are supposedly happily married , who have "normal " husbands, NONE OF WHICH PULL THEIR OWN SHARE OF THE CHILD REARING EITHER LET ALONE TAKE THE TRASH OUT".
So I ask you Oh Glorious self-rightess one when are these women suppose to exercise. It is certaintly not for a lack of desire but maybe it is for a lack of time, lack of energy having to pick up the mens slack and continual bitterness for having men constantly let them down when it comes to them "having to have children to show off to their buddies but yet never waking up in the middle of the night, never taking them to a birthday party or anything else it takes to be a parent."
Now I don't know you but by your ignorance you seem the exact type of man that would knock up some woman, maybe pay child support(like that makes a difference anymore), but not do anything else. And then when your wife or ex gets fat becuase she has been forced to pick up your slack that you now get joy out of making fun of her and putting her down. At this point you would crush what self esteem she has left pushing her into the only comfort she has gotten that doesn't critise her like you do (FOOD). Then you run off with a younger more naive , skinny girl until you do the same thing to her. Until one day you look in the mirror and the "skinny" girls don't want you anymore becuase you yourself have grown a beer gut and ingrown hairs in places that we don't want to mention and the fat girls have had enough time alone are now too smart to get involved with you and simply don't need you anymore. So you see oh so self-rightous one if you men would stop complaining about women getting fat and letting ourself go , and actual help raise the children that you helped bring in to the world then us women would have more time to go to the gym so then we could look hot only no longer with you. However don't think that we have not caught on to your plan, by being a slack parent and pushing the burden onto the women, leaving us no time to think straight or exercise, getting us fat...... all comes down to the plan that you think by then no GOOD man would want us. Becuase we all know how men don't want another man on or should I say in his territory. Which you still think we are even after we throw yourself out the window, file a restraining order and tell you in 20 different languages to FUCK OFF.
