Quote# 46127

When we prayed about my blood sugar, those numbers came right down to where they should be. Now I need help lowering another number--my weight. I have exhausted every possible human effort, and it will take a miracle for me to lose weight. However, I am a Christian and I do believe in miracles. So please join me in prayer, and let's get ready to see one happen.

Ahhh, this is one of those times where I have to defend the fundy in question. LBF is a wonderful lady I've had the pleasure of getting to know over at CF. Yes, she is a Christian, but she is very kind-hearted and tolerant.

She has struggled immensely with her weight and some other health problems that have caused her to not be able to exercise properly (she has trouble with her feet). So, she's having a lot of problems with it. To make matters worse, her family is very critical of her weight. Let's cut her some slack.

I tkae it getting off your fat ass and actually working at it is out of the question?

Sad fact.. those weight loss pills they show on TV don't do anything, you need to change the crap you eat and exercise regularly

And that's EXERCISE, not exorcise! Because I know you'll prtobably get the terms confused

I'm with KatAutumn.

Go to the fucking gym and work the pounds off not pray them off

8/29/2008 10:20:59 PM


Have you tried not eating so much, fatass?

I'll take your word for it, Kat. I wish her well.

Good luck, Lovebirds. You have my support.

8/29/2008 10:34:49 PM


Sad backstory but the prayers will help as much as a pile of insults here (which she is unlikely to read).

What she actually needs is a more temporal source of advice and support. While she clings to her, erm, ideas this is unlikely.

You should start exercising.

8/29/2008 10:45:36 PM


God made you fat. Don't argue with him. You'll burn like a tyre in hell. Seriously - just go with it.

I Broke Free

These same lard-ass Christians that insist that gays should remain celibate for the rest of their lives can’t seem to put down a fork. What hypocrisy! I thought god was never going to give them anything they can’t handle.

Calling out some fat old broad is like kicking a retard down the stairs. It doesn't seem so funny an hour later.

8/29/2008 10:52:36 PM


you could try eating less and exercising...that might help. I've got arthritis and an old hip fracture that make exercise difficult. I'm not saying she should run a marathon but even a short walk (or a few minutes on an exercise machine) every day will make a difference. Also, portion control. I went from 280 pounds to 145 by diet and exercise (I'm also an insulin dependent diabetic)

@ KatAutumn:

Hmm... Your argument from emotion made me feel awkward... I was going to rate this a 1 anyway. The only fundy part here is praying about your weight instead of like.. exercising.

Green tea.

Nothing with corn syrup sweetener.

More green tea.

Best wishes.

Hmmm, pray while on an eliptical? That might be easier on her feet...

8/29/2008 10:58:24 PM


Put down the fork fatass.

8/29/2008 11:06:50 PM


Dear Lord Jaysus, <smack, chomp,smack, smack> please help me lawd <gobble, nom, smack, chew> to lose this weight <nom, swallow, smack, slurp> cause I don't know how to do it <chomp, lick, smack, smack> on my own. <burp>

8/29/2008 11:16:32 PM

Diet and exercise work better, believe me.

I say we leave this one alone.
The only nonsensical part is where she opts to pray instead of really trying to work off the weight. But my mother had the same problem, and had to get surgery. The difference with her is that now she exercises to keep that weight off. However, if what Kat said isn't true, she needs, like others have stated, PUT DOWN THE DAMN FORK.

LOL. I couldn't help myself. That was funny.

Rating: 1 for this one.

Ah, not so bad. I'd much rather see people praying for help, even for themselves, than for someone else's conversion, "consequences for sin," etc. Even if it doesn't actually help, getting a bit of comfort and talking to people can be helpful.

*looks down at KatAutumn* Others seem to feel the same way!

8/29/2008 11:45:00 PM


Put down the mother fucking fork.

You don't need an imaginary friend for that shit.

8/29/2008 11:51:47 PM


Why don't you get off your fat ass and exercise you sloth.

8/30/2008 12:02:28 AM


You tried a healthy diet and vigorous physical exercise and nothing? Really?! You do know you have to do it for more than a few days for results, right?
