  •  What he is saying about losing weight (12+ / 0-)

    is complete and utter bullshit, aside from the so-called "common sense" stuff about "it's healthier if you lose weight", as though she didn't know.

    Do you really believe she doesn't know she's overweight and being told this by some asshole in an unsolicited email is what she needs?

    He says the reason she is overweight is that she has consciously decided to be obese, and that all she has to do is consciously decide to want to be thin, and it will just happen.

    This is crap. He knows zero about weight loss. Do you actually agree with him?

    The guy has zero expertise on the subject.

    •  Agreed! (4+ / 0-)

      For instance, I have gained rather a lot of weight in the past year and a half, which I didn't and don't want and which I can't get rid of. Why? Because I had a kidney transplant last February and have been on prednisone since, and it builds up. Who's to say that she doesn't have a medical condition that accounts for her being overweight? And whose business is it, anyway, except hers and her physician's?

      Organ donors save lives! A donor's kidney gave me my life back on 02/18/11; he lives on in me. Please talk with your family about your wish to donate.

      Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?
