    Generalize much? What a stupid post.

    But NOT as a leading lady or romantic interest in a TV movie or theatrical film?

    Exactly, I can't help but be horrified when people talk about gabby as being a great role model. Sure she has great self confidence, but she is someone's who's health is seriously in danger. If someone was clearly anorexic, but had confidence and didn't care what anyone thought about his or her's body, we would not hold that person up as a role model for their "attitude" about their body image. Obesity should be seem with the same horror as any eating disorder is seen with.

    I mean I do applaud gabby for not letting H-wood's standards get her down, that mentality is a great example, but it doesn't change what she physically represents....

    Haha, love it. I didn't realize there was a garlic addiction epidemic across the US! OMG. Do you fatties realize how many extra calories 5 cloves of garlic adds to your portion of a family meal!?

    I don't know how you would know exactly what "Americans" are cooking in their homes and why they are cooking it, but you might consider that garlic is a very useful resource beyond whatever uses you deem acceptable. Some people eat a lot of garlic for its numerous health benefits, and not necessarily the taste. Maybe they can't afford to be sophisticated and European, so they try a little preventative herbal approach. But in regards to flavor, some people who can't afford spices from around the globe grab some garlic because at least they'll get some alternative to flavorless.

    Now if you'll excuse me, there's a secret stash of garlic cloves that I hid in the closet that I need to get back to.

    My point was I see many obese women with pretty faces who seem oblivious to their weight issues. When I walk in the bathroom it is pretty easy to ignore what shows up below the tits because I don't much see it. I've often wondered how a woman could let herself get to this level. For me, weight makes a huge difference in my face. I don't look as attractive with even ten pounds on. So I've never understood how women could let themselves go so far. But what I'm noticing is a pattern of pretty faces with huge bodies. So I'm wondering if women don't really pay attention to what goes on below the waist.

    But ya' know, you and Diva are right because Denial is never an issue with obese women.

    If you don't understand the point that doesn't mean there wasn't one.

    Interesting post. It's sad but denial runs quite deep in many disorders. Eating disorders is just one of them. I would wager if you ask any recovered obese eater, denial of consumed food is just a totally obvious start point.
    That is a good point because some may not have a full length body mirror and just use one that shows the face, or it's just denial, plain and simple. Denial can blind people from a LOT of things that are right in their face. It's a psychological defense mechanism like how some block out traumas and don't remember them. That denial is what allows them to let themselves go till they are 500 pounds.

    I wonder what other projects Gaby might be involved in at the moment (besides her guest role on Showtime's 'The Big C').

    So it all boils down to a lack of a full length mirror for some people. Damn. Who knew!

    Many scientists now agree that most people have a "set point" in terms of body weight and it doesn't deviate by much throughout people's lives unless a person suffers from a disorder or unless the person has point which marks them to be obese or super obese. Just like some people were born to be above average in height, some people shockingly enough for those that don't believe in science, are born to be predisposed to obesity. My set point has never deviated more than 10 lbs, hours of exercise a day or not, holiday eating or not. I think most of us are like that. I believe the average set point is no more than 35 lbs of weight gain in a lifetime.

    Btw, talking about denial. There's at least one fattie amongst you who is either in total denial or is being extremely sarcastic. "Responziiiiible eating". Is that all it takes? Oh well looky here how well it's working for you.

    Pfft, i'm fat and it's because I don't eat or exercise responsibly; if i did, I'd be 1/5 a Gabourey. How about that, I just invented a system of measurement. That just happened.
