Yes people are mean I babysat from friday thru sun and I was woken up by my 7 year old because the child I was babysitting had beaten my cat because he said the cat scratched him and he wanted to keep holding the cat because he looked bored…Now my cat passed because of the tragic beaten and am left broken hearted. My kids knew I loved my cat a whole lot and will never heart an animal. I don’t know how people are raising their kids but I teach mine to cherish all living things….I told the mom that my cat died and people don’t know how to respond because it didn’t happen to them or they just don’t value animals the same as you….Hopefully I will be okay….Just sad……Love you Timmy…..
While I appreciate the article and do believe that many people make excuses about why they have weight, I have to share that because of that sort of advice, my thyroid issue went undiagnosed for years. And guess what happened when my thyroid was regulated? I dropped 26 pounds! I didn’t change a thing in terms of calories or exercise. I did the same thing with a regulated thyroid gland. Oh, and that is NOT a rare thing. It is extremely common. I’m an advocate now for having women get their thyroid tested and not from a doctor who only looks at TSH (it’s not enough–symptoms must be treated!) I’d say half of them also mentioned having low thyroid symptoms or mentioned they are receiving thyroid hormone replacement. Also, other hormones must be in balance for weight to be regulated. To the author: Please be careful with your casual, non-medical advice. That sort of advice cost me years of feeling sick and being obese!
Raul Quintero spoke to me about what happens when the search for that feeling of being appreciated for your size can go to extremes. Quintero spent a few months in gainer and feeder culture, where men worship men with big bellies, and some go to extremes to gain weight. Quintero has seen videos of men eating lard and funneling gallons of milk into their partners' guts — because of a sexual attraction to bellies. Quintero, who is now on a fitness journey but used to weight about 270 pounds, told Mic that he went on these gainer-feeder sites in search of potential dates, but decided it wasn't for him.
