please don’t tell me you aspire to be that skinny?
to be honest i do a little bit.
part of me would rather look like that, than what i do now.
i’m sorry to judge and all but to want to get to this point is fucking horrible. i’d much rather be fat and happy than starving and depressed.
would you really rather be fat?
and have kids like make jokes about you and stuff?
think about all the fat jokes there are compared to the ones about super super skinny people?
just because there are more jokes about people being ‘fat’ than skinny, doesn’t mean they hurt more.people have made disgusting comments about some of my friends because of how ‘skinny’ they are. i would rather be fat and even slightly happy than to look like this. having to go in and out of hospital almost every day, having to be fed through a tube, and to be so oblivious to the fact that i’m dying.anorexia is more of a disease than just ‘wanting to be skinny’.she’s so wrapped up in it that she can’t even see she’s dying.i’m not judging or anything. but it is a silly thing to say you’d rather look like this than be ‘fat’ or a little chubby or whatever.
i said part of me,
but id still rather be anorexic than morbidlly obese,
would you rather people say you died of obesity than anorexia?
i know i probably shouldn’t be getting involved in this anymore, but yes, i would.
no its cool, its nothign serious.
im not arguing,
i just think if you died of obesesity the jokes wouldnt die wiht you theyd just carry on, like idk i can imagine popel saying id deserve to die of obeseity fue to ebing so lazy?
whereas if i died of anorexia peoples reacitons would be idk, you know i dont think theyd be as cruel?
Have you ever done any research into obesity and its causes? Yes, some people are obese due to laziness. Many are obese due to genetics, emotional factors (things like abuse/mocking as a child can actually result in weight gain), medical problems, medications, lack of sleep, eating disorders like compulsive eating or binge eating, and a variety of other reasons.
Besides if you die from being obese, you get a lot longer to live than dying from heart failure or starvation from bulimia or anorexia.
haha my typing was so bad there.
yes i know that the cause to obesity isnt just laziness, but i just think we live in a cruel world and thats what people would say!
surely having longer to live being obese is a bad thing?
considering we have already got over the being mocked part, so by being anorexic youll have less mocking which may hurt more, but you wont have to deal with it for as long.
loads of obese people commit suicide before their weight kills them, so surely the fact living longer as an obese person is a bad thing?
Who cares what people say? What kind of person lives their life based on what the rest of the world thinks of them? If a person is so caught up in what other people think of them that they base the result of their life on someone else, then is their life really that much greater than an obese person’s life?
Do you want to know the bad things about being obese?
You can be in pain all the time and doctors don’t care. You can be sick all the time and doctors might not care.
Of course, you know what happens when you get as skinny as that picture? You hurt and you’re sick and NO ONE feels for you because by that point they figure that you brought it on yourself. People might pity you the first 10-15 pounds underweight that you are, but once you hit a certain point, then chances are they just won’t really care.
I understand what it’s like to want to be skinny. I’ve always wanted to be skinny. I’ve always had to listen to doctors telling me that it was in my best interest to be skinny. I’ve dieted. I’ve prayed for the day when I would have the self-control to be anorexic. I’ve gone to the ends of the earth to lose weight, and for a while I was small for me. I was still larger than a lot of people, but you know what I realized? My self-worth had nothing to do with the pounds that I weighed or the appearance in the mirror. My self-worth had to do with how I felt about myself as a person.
What people see is what people see, but who they interact with…that is the real person. Flesh, fat, etc. is just basically some illusion that we all interpret in different ways.
