Have They Ever Been Fat?

fat donutI am disgusted. I just spent an hour on Pinterest looking for exercises that I can do to help lose weight and work on some problem areas. Here are the problems.

1. I weigh 240 lbs.

2. How the hell do they think I can get down on the floor and twist like a frickin’ slinky?

4. The marketing for weight loss geared toward the obese is shameful and insulting. What the hell is the fascination with having a bubble butt. And back in my day having a bubble butt was a very bad thing.

5. Why don’t trainers and fitness “experts” come up with more than six exercises that obese people can do until they lose enough weight and/or inches to be able to get up and down of the floor without pulling every muscle in their damn bodies?

6. Do the advertisers really believe that all of us fat people are inspired by the pictures of all those anorexic looking women with boobs way to big for their bodies?

Let me tell you, I’m not impressed and trying to come up with an effective exercise program that is plausible and the my body can actually do is FAR MORE stressful than being fat.
Just sayin’.

  1. I’m right there with you, plus I have damaged knees. Those ‘exercise’ regimes are a joke … but yeah, like Samantha said in her comment – dancing.
    I have a playlist of a gazillion songs from the rock-n-roll era of the 50’s/60’s, so throughout my day I get up and dance, or if I’m having a bad-knee moment, in my chair, and dance to one song which is usually 2+ minutes long. I’m not talking about anything fancy mind you, just lots of waving my arms about and swaying from side to side, with maybe a bit of walk/dancing around the house, letting my body move how it wants to, etc.
    My aim is to do that 10 times per day, which when you add it together is about 30 minutes, because sometimes I’m having such a good time that I tack on another song here and there.
    I said my ‘aim’ is to do that, because some days managing only one or two is a good day. 🙂

  2. It certainly will not be easy at the moment. I’m guessing you’re high risk so you’ll be spending a lot of time in side. Dancing at home would be fun. All you need to do is get your heart rate up to have a positive effect.
