    Not sure how relevent this thought is, given the direction the thread is going, but...
    How come there were no "big-boned" or "fat runs in my family" sufferers in Auschwitz, or Dachau...
    Just a thought? :ohwell:

    Are you really comparing anything to the concentration camps and genocide that occured? That's disturbing how you could even correlate that. I'm not sure what's going on in your mind that even makes that a logical jump.

    I was not comparing anything with them or that dreadful time.
    My only point was that when you do not eat much food you loose weight, and there were no survivors of those terrible places who came out carrying a little extra weight.
    It was not my intention to cause offence or disturb anyone.

    No one brings up the holocaust in the middle of chitchat fun and games threads unless they are trying to cause offense and disturb people. Because under no circumstances is it every comforting, funny or happy.

    While we are at it, we might as well talk about slavery. How many calories did slaves burn while working in the fields? I wonder if any of them wore a HRM.

    I sometimes say my fiance is "big boned"...his bones are a NORMAL SIZE but his rib cage is very wide, making him appear fatter than he is. But, not every fat person that makes that excuse can say the same. I agree!

    Whenever somebody would complain about being big boned my dad used to say: Have you ever seen a fat skeleton? That usually shut them up :p

    “Big boned” is just another excuse people use for not wanting to put forth the effort to lose weight. It’s up there with “I have a gland problem” or “I have slow metabolism”. These tend to be the same people who say things like “real women have curves”.

    I have honestly never heard of a person who ate less and exercised more being absolutely incapable of losing weight. I suppose you can have slow metabolism or a thyroid issue or whatever but those things aren’t going to cause weight to magically appear on you if you are eating less and working out. It make take longer to lose, but it will happen eventually.
