Yep. The cake is banana, too. It's round and folded like a taco.

I don't understand any of the "I'm too fat to (insert physical activity here)" Being fat doesn't make exercise impossible, laziness does. It could be running, pull ups, surfing, push ups, rowing, jump rope, box jumps, anything. Fat people can do it all.

Good to know it's laziness that stopping me and my fellow compadres from spelunking (caving), or fitting into booths at the local restaurant.

And to be serious for a moment, I disagree. There are a number of conditions which result in eating disorders, which can lead to becoming fat. There's also a number of conditions resulting from being fat, which can affect mobility and other physical attributes needed to jump rope, surf, or run.

I sometimes wish it was merely lack of motivation that kept me from being a fit healthy man.

It is. I weigh 375 lbs and have no problem doing any of it. Well, i've never tried surfing but that's just because i live in ohio. It's definitely more difficult to get started in those things than it is for a small person. But, after a few months of suffering through the pain you can do it all. And just a tip for anyone that wants to get into that stuff. Jumping rope is better than running. Lot less impact. your calves will be on fire but you won't have the same joint pain that running causes. Rower's are another great tool for the large man. you get to sit on your ass while doing it so your weight isnt much of an issue. and it works your whole body.

I don't like to generalize. It's not going to be that way 100% of the time. But, in my experience, the vast majority of cases it's laziness.

Just because fat people can do certain activities doesn't mean it's wise. Strapping 200 pounds of extra weight to an average sized person's body for example would not enhance their workouts in the slightest. On the contrary, it yeilds only negative consequences. It will appear for some people earlier than others but no one escapes unscathed regardless of how strong and well conditioned they are. Hips and knees will pay. You might want to rethink your position.

So, you do realize that you just called almost all of the fat people here on Dimensions lazy, right?

I'm curious about how you thought this slight would be received (and in case you weren't clear, most people consider being called lazy to be a slight)

Fitness is the most important aspect of health. All workouts can easily be scaled to ability and done safely and then increased in a linear progression. You might want to learn a little more about exercise.

Like it or not, we are the product of a very long process of adaptation to a harsh physical existence, and the past couple centuries of comparative ease and plenty are not enough time to change our genome.

We humans are at our best when our existence mirrors, or at least simulates, the one we are still genetically adapted to live.

And that is the purpose of exercise...

I wouldn't assume that almost all the fat people on dimensions are lazy. I don't know their level of physical activity. I'm just saying that a lot of fat people refrain from physical activity that they are perfectly capable of doing but choose not to because they are unwilling to exert themselves. That is the definition of laziness. And if anyone is angry with this statement it's probably because it is true. People should be honest with themselves instead of making excuses.

Look, you don't have to get flip with me Geodetic. All 'workouts' can be scaled but all 'activities,' which was what you were originally referring too, can not. There is no wisdom in having a 400 pound person doing deep knee bends. Even Ripptoe posts a disclaimer to consult a physician first before engaging in any of his activities, he's not a doctor. It is possible for even a healthy activity to be unhealthy for a person. Through the endorphin high people don't usually hear that little warning until they are forced to sit around on their asses from repetative stress injury and are being fitted with special shoes. This place is full of people who live this. We've heard people better than you serving up this pitch. Then wash it down with a story about how all the people in wheelchairs from their gung ho theories are to blame because they either didn't do it properly or didn't consult a physician first. It won't happen to you and if it does, that's not their fault either. Don't play doctor with the people here.

^^^ exactly

He's also forgetting the many fat people who are fat mainly because they have a heart/lung condition that physically prevents them from exerting themselves. My mother-in-law has such a condition and, if she even gets too angry, she could die.

Obviously they're just too lazy to grow new organs!

Me? I'm too lazy to grow new joints (and too young and too poor to have them replaced).

I would love to see someone motivate me out of osteoarthritis. No, seriously. If you could just talk me out of this pain, it'd be great. C'mon, all I need is to think positive, right?

If only positive thinking and jumping rope could replace painkillers, canes and night after night of lying awake because nothing will take the edge off...then again, if that's all it took, my (daily) bike ride, strength training and vitamin supplements probably would have cured it by now.

Yeah, clearly I'm just too lazy to run.

Again, I'm not saying it is that way for every person. But the number of fat people that actually have a medical condition that is preventing them from performing physical activities is very small. The health problems of fat people usually start with laziness. Most of the time that is how they become fat. And then they develop medical problems as a result. That's why fitness is so important. You can prevent these problems long before they start. and even reverse them after they do. And then you can be a healthy, fit fat person with a much longer life. The only thing that is stopping them is their own mind. and the endorphin high doesn't come until after you have completed a tough workout. during the workout your entire body is telling you to stop. but you suck it up and keep going. that is how you get stronger.

Way to bring a zamboni to water games at the fire hydrant. Up until you got here this was a fun, lighthearted thread about being too fat to ride in a one wheeled wagon or squeeze in to a hula hoop. Only two or three people actually posted about not being able to engage in physical activity and one of them isn't even fat. Then you come along and without knowing anything about anyone saw only an opportunity to run your sales pitch. Nobody here is in need of an explanation as to why exercise is important. What kind of people do you take us for??

I would like to see your statistics on fat people and medical histories. Please cite them. Obviously you have some fantastic reference that everyone else does not.

I would also like to see your statistics on "most" health problems beginning with laziness and slipping into fatness. (My arthritis began with a Dodge Avenger falling on me - hell, I'm not even fat!)

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
