Making Fat People Look Bad
Maybe she is a food addict, I don't know, or maybe this is scripted TLC TV to make fat people look bad to go along with the pig that humped her leg. I told my husband about that show and he agreed with my disgust. I said it's all about fat people debasement. She's got money to hire a chef to cook three organic squares a day for her. Why is someone that rich eating crappy fast food?
When I saw this video, I can't sit through her entire shows anymore, I thought just tell the guy, "I am hungry all the time" and woman up and tell him, "That's four weeks of meals worth of food and I am messy and never clean my car" but don't do the scripted crying. Please just don't. Just tell the guy what you are eating and why. I made zuchini and cabbage soup at lunch and had a big bowl of it with a turkey sandwich on organic sourdough bread with 1 slice of swiss cheese, and dinner I had some rice noodles with chicken thighs and other veggies, and 2 hard boiled eggs at breakfast among my food, so I ate well today and I would tell the trainer everything I ate and why.
He probably would tell me, TOO MUCH FOOD, maybe. Carbs were a bit high but I kept the portions controlled. He would say to me, "You are 500 and something pounds why didn't you just eat a lettuce leaf for lunch?" I would tell him I was hungry and that won't cut it. I have this problem with the diabetes where if I do not eat a certain amount aka UNDER IT, the Sugars skyrocket like hell on earth. If I went to town and ate one of those giant chocolate cookies and eat bad foods, it would go bad for me too. This is like a science project. The blood sugar was 110 this morning. I do need to get more exercise.
But gah, why did they have to show her with her car full of fast food and cookies. Was that scripted or is she really having a food addiction problem? It makes all fat people look bad and like excuse makers. I believe some fat people out there do have food addiction problems but then food addiction can be SATIETY DISORDERS and to be honest with severe enough PCOS, the motor is humming for HUNGER DAY AND NIGHT. Someone with severe PCOS better be eating at normal intervals, and so our media and society will present her as the bad fat "glutton". Whitney isn't lazy running around to her various dance contests and such but they got the stereotypical pig-out a thons shown.
She probably is insulin resistant up the whazoo. Her extreme emotional lability is due to the PCOS too, that's could be a symptom of the extreme hormonal imbalances. Severe PCOS brings depression and anxiety and she's seems to be showing a lot of that. That's where her thinning hair is from and if the androgens are high enough--she doesn't seem to be turning masculine like I did for a time, the hunger levels are going to up along with them. That's one little fun symptom of PCOS, if you were one of the severe cases and she most likely is. Insulin resistance makes you HUNGRY. Insulin resistance does scary things, its one reason I had absolute no periods from the age of 19 to 44, unless forced by a drug. When I went on insulin the body went "Oh boy insulin for me!" and I started having periods, well too many periods but that's a problem I don't want to get into on here.
My hunger remains a problem. I used to write about it all the time on this blog. When I lost my 250lbs from the 700 [now mostly 200 is still off] I had to figure out what foods controlled it compared to ones that do not. Normal American eating was not on the roster. I have to cook like an old housewife from the 50s being in the kitchen several hours a day, just to keep the diabetes from killing me. I know normal people are not cutting cabbage at noon, they are at WORK.
I have failed in losing more weight but have to do certain things NOT to gain. I am scared crapless even by the recent small gain, and know I have to be vigilant. As I have written I fight the same 100 over and over, or the same 50 the last few years. I see a lot of websites now where some are right wing ones and others are mainstream ones, or foreign ones, and there's a lot of people who are posting about "disgusting fat Americans".
A lot of the english speaking male world especially the ones who go on about the "decline of the West" and yes our culture is descending into degeneracy and their neo-fascist attitudes are not the answer either, they go on about how so many Americans have grown disgustingly fat especially the women. They all believe in CICO and "personality responsiblity" but I find myself think "Are Europeans all more moral and good then Americans? So why are Americans getting fatter like crazy compared to Europeans?"
The bad food, GMOs and toxins are bringing more endocrine disease, more PCOS, more insulin resistance. They will fatten us all up with the MSG, GMOs, crap food and stress, and then play "blame the victim"! Then you will have the thinsters judge and cry "off with their fat heads!". I don't want to be seen as the fat person who represents the America Idiocracy on many a cartoon. I don't want to be the one pictured at Wal-mart on a scooter with everyone clucking disgust at me as a sign and symbol of a falling nation. My body was not my choice.
Whitney Thore more and more looks like the new fat scapegoat meant to debase and degrade fat people and the repeating over and over of "answers" that hasn't work in 50 years. If insulin resistance is lowering her metabolism and giving her hunger problems, I hope she can get help. She may have sleep apnea too that is untreated. That was part of my original loss, and doctors tell me know my sleep apnea affects me stopping more weight loss even though it is treated and I never miss a night off the CPAP. If she is eating out of a psychological eating disorder I hope she can get help there too.
Fast food is poison. I personally hate the stuff. They put things in it to destroy your mind and body. Yes I know I sound like a foodie snob, but I know how I feel on good food compared to that crap from eating some of it years ago.
I once had someone write me about being on a documentary via this blog, and it turned out they were in England, so when I told them I lived in America, they moved on. This was a long time ago. "Its for the better", I thought. Some people are extroverts and can pull this off. I am too autistic. I don't have the perky personality that reality TV especially but I know I have a big mouth and if they told me to bow down and cry and tell America I'm sorry for eating anything I'd tell them to kiss my butt. If they wanted me to have some pet pig, representing "me" as a TV metaphor, I'd quit that day. If they had some trainer fire me, I would hire another one.
I also am worried too about something else. I see a lot of fat people where we are truthful about medical conditions impacting our weight being ignored and not believed. People more and more are ready to string us all up and call us liars for claiming to have conditions or 'condishuns' as the fat hating proles like to spell it.
I see news reports of women with severe Lipedema where it is obvious their body is swelling up with extreme fluids, and people making fat jokes. I suffered greatly from PCOS. I know I focus mostly on the Lipedema and the crap from the diabetes lately but PCOS did terrible things to me. One doctor even told me he thought I had adrenal hyperplasia. It covered my body in almost velvet darker brown/black skin patches. Now with this show, PCOS will just be seen as a joke, and a fat glutton's excuse, and the hue and cry will be "lose weight" with conditions that put weight on. How many of us were told to diet as we got sicker and sicker? More people will be in danger of dying like me because of extreme delayed diagnosis or having their lives thwarted and ruined.
I wish Whitney Thore was smarter then this, and would stand up for herself a bit. She never defends herself. Now I know why I get mad when I see her cry. Part of me understands she is bawling her head off due to her hormonal imbalances, but I can see how they are using her emotions in a negative way for the agenda of this show. It's not because I lack empathy, it's because I see what this show could do in terms of how people treat and view fat people. The backlash against size acceptance with it's ideological extremes has already come and it's growing. Maybe I am just an ornery old woman whose seen too much crap, but seeing another fat woman fulfilling the two sides of the fat lie coin [with extreme "I'm happy to be fat" delusional messages combined with nothing but self flagellation for being a supposed "gluttonious" fatty and being lectured on will power, grinds my gears. There's no free thinking here, only more forced conformity. Take responsibility for what you are responsible for and past that she needs to stand up for herself and her health.
