    While writing a term paper on healthcare and life expectancy in the world i came across an interesting figure
    The average weight for women in the United States is 152lbs...considerably more than all the other countries in the world that i looked at
    thats a lot...152...thats a big girl

    anyway i wonder why that is...just goes to show we are some of the fattest people in the world...must be all those girls up in Minnesota and Wisconsin...they like their cheese don't you know....heheeh just kidding

    but seriously we are a freaking fat country...obesity is a disease people just never really take seriously but actually it probably has effected the life expectancy of people in our country...

    oh well just thought that was kind of interesting...around my parts we call girls that are that curvacious Mary J Rottencrotch you may remember that line from the classic Full Metal Jacket flick... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] well, what's the average weight for men [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    Rule of thumb:

    5' tall=100lbs
    for every inch after add 5lbs......so if you're a women at 5'7" you should weigh 135lbs [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    must be some tall women these days [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    yeah you're right. americans (i mean north americans because canadians are almost just as bad, not quite though) are the fattest people in the world. there are many reasons for this, but if you look at asian countries there are very few people overweight. mostly because people walk more and get more exercise. you'll notice that most people in north america would rather take their cars than walk, and the like. it is a disease that is very easily treatable. i'm totally with you.

    That's weird, I'm 15 and also 5'8" and about 125 pounds.

    At my school there don't seem to be a lot of fat girls but most of them are pretty tall.

    Yep we Americans do tend to have quite a few "whole lot of Rosies" running around. I tend to think the majority of it stems from just being too damn lazy. I've know this one girl since pre K and she totally blew up around Jr. High all through High school. I saw her again at my highschool 10th reunion, and she was just amazing. She told me she watched what she ate and worked out all the time etc. Her and her husband had 3 kids to boot. Who knows
    she's probably a minority when it comes to that, but she obviously made an effort and it paid off. Bottome line, way too many of us are lazy, and would rather spend their time eating chips and watching TV. Out.

    Before this turns into a *chunky chicks* thread....there is a whole other side to the weight issue. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    anorexia isn't a walk in the park either [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Anorexia is a HUGE problem, but it sure ain't a problem for me.

    Hell, I'm 5'5" and I weigh 145!

    sounds good synth [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] actually every woman is differnt..some women are petite,some are very curvy and voluptious(thick ,as i like to call it)and thin. 150 isnt fat as long as you re not 5 feet even and its in the right places [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]...now 350 thats fat ! personally i like a thick ,curvy girl with a juicy butt ! dont get me wrong a small petite chick is nice too, i guess im just diverse. im 6 3 ' 228, so a 150 pound chick is still easy to "handle" if ya know what i mean.

    do you know there are more people that live on one street in Washington (i don't know which one) than in the entire state of Montana?

    also, do you know there are more species of beetles than there are all the other plant and animals species combined?

    those are the two latest mind-boggling figures/statistics i've heard... nothing related to fat people, but i just thought i would share.. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    lead synth, you're in fine shape now, but don't let yourself get up to 200 and think that your still healthy... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    My sister is an anesthetic specialist and she told me that obese people are more than 10 times more likely to die in an operation than a fit person. That's pretty alarming. The point I'm trying to make is that it is a much greater problem than just an appearance issue - it is really dangerous!
